I think that most are joking when they say that all they want to see it punching. I do want to see Superman fight someone but that will mean nothing if I dislike the characters and the story isn't compelling to a certain degree.

The problem SR was boring with characters portrayed as boring. Therefore, they could have made up for it with good action and they didn't. And he didn't really punch anyone. I mean he's Superman. Shouldn't he do that sometimes? Not that he intentionally goes out to punch people but geez... people get sick of the lack of a real physical threat. Plus with today's technology, there's so much potential to create some of the best action sequences of all time with this character, yet SR didn't utilize that idea.

Good summation of my thoughts and feelings. I would have been more forgiving of the lack of action if I actually liked any of the characters and the actual villain was compelling in some fashion. Adding action to SR would have still yelled a film that I didn't dig.

Hopefully Superman and Lois are charming in this new feature and the villain is compelling to some degree.

Poor action and no story. If that's your treat, okay, but hardly qualifies as good for me.

Superman? "The Great Puncher"? Sure, otherwise what is he?

I mean, he didn't punch anything/anyone in STM, but who cares about that piece of dirt?

Which he was able to lift by the way, I mean smh if that is stake. SR is mediocre for a lot of reasons but that was just stupid and indefendible IMO (sun charge an all), now we have no guarantee that Snyder will suceed and I admit he wasn't who I was thinking for the director chair but what I was sure is that I didn't want a sequel to SR, hell no.

i agree but someone seem to think that Superman should go around punching things....Snyder should do a two hour movie of him just punching everything

I'm just so excited to see what a Superman FIGHT SCENE will look like on the big screen. I mean, I have literally no idea (probably because i'm not an expert in choreography) what they will do, how they will arrange it, what kind of fighting we are going to see...

I guess i'm just so used to Smallville's pushing and throwing 'fight' scenes, that I can't even picture it lol

I'm excited about that prospect as well. We only have the 80's movies to look at as far as combat in a live action films are concerned and we've come so far with visual effects that one has to be a little curious and excited.

Exactly... we have never gotten an awesome fight scene between fighters of Superman's strength and power with today's technology. The best example I can think of is the DCU Online trailer... imagine an entire movie like that, Superman flying faster than the eye can see, slamming into Luthor like a bomb and then blasting Black Adam down with his eye lasers and punches so powerful they create shock waves.

That's exactly how I'm expecting the fighting to be in the movie... I trust Snyder won't let me down with that.

I agree. I want good action mixed with a good story, and yes, I want Supes to PUNCH something, and I make no apologies for it.
I grow tired of posters thinking thats all we want in MOS is for supes to punch something..it's quite the opposite. what I dont want is to have another SR on our hands where its not well received by the public and the hunger for a sequel is not there.

Make no mistake, WB knows the lack of action hurt SR and they will correct that in MOS.
I just hope they don't go overboard with it.

If they can increase the intense factor in the action sequences will giving dramatic reason as to why these action sequences should matter in terms of storyline, then I think it'll definitely help the film.

Right now, MOS needs to build up on two things that SR sorely lacked in:

1. Characterization

2. Action

Also lets squash a myth...SR only failed because it cost too much to make....it made 350mil and cost 200 mil to make....had the movie cost 80 mil to make Brandon Routh would have been Superman a bit longer

Everybody brings up the fact he lifted the kryptonite island but forgot that he died immediately afterwards. It's not like he just did it no problem.

Exactly. That was risking his life, physical danger and all that stuff. But well, Superman is the boxer os superheroes so he needs to punch.

whats your definition of dying? he didnt even die. he woke up the same night and flew away, he had a pulse the entire time he was in the hospital.

This is superman tho, i get some of you are trying desperately to defend SR which i did like but these are superhero movies, he should be fighting supervillains not lifting objects or fighting rocks. If you want people risking their lives doing that kind of stuff go watch a movie about firefighters not a movie about the greatest and most powerful hero created. I find it incredibly weird that people sound almost as if they would rather see him lifting kryptonite then going toe to toe with his villains. Just because we want him to actually use his powers to fight a vast array of villains doesnt mean we are saying superman=boxer. you might as well say that every1 thinks batman, spidey, captain american, thor, gl, iron man=boxer because they threw punches.

Superheroes fight supervillains!

Except for the part where he flatlined. The only reason why he could come back to life was the hospital attention.

I'm not desperate to defend anything. I give credit where credit is due. I want a supervillain as well. I have no say in this punching debate.

Actually, I thought the point of that scene was that the hospital COULDN'T help him, other than removing ther rest of the green k from his wound. They couldn't shock him, couldn't inject him etc etc.

Yeah, I was referring to removing the kryptonite. The hospital helped by giving him a stable environment to recuperate, not through any procedure of their own.

Personally I didn't see him flatline. I saw their attempt to shock him blow up the machine, which then appeared to show a flatline because it couldn't get a reading on him.

But this is all just further proof to me of how confusing the movie was in general.
