If what the MOS facebook said ends up being true, then we can definitely expect to start getting our well earned batch of new materials for the film starting this March which is only a week away from now.

Not fan fiction.

That description is real.

^ I remember that. I think it was going to be called Superman Unleashed, though. At least according to Legendary's private emlpoyee website.

Most of that sounds good. Except for the big problem of Returns becomes an even bigger problem for Unleashed: Superman is now forced to murder the son he had with Lois. My god. This is SUPERMAN. Can you imagine how the loss of a child would have affected the characters?

But I really like the "the world's pissed at Superman for witholding alien tech and not doing enough for third world countries etc." I wouldn't mind seeing that for MoSII. Include that with Earth based threats (Metallo, Parasite etc) funded by a certain shady business man...who is also running for President, and we might be on to something. Just have to find a way to make these villains as 'big' as Zod and co. (As somebody said, I too get a distinct 'villain of the week' vibe from Metallo).

EDIT: It's definately real. Dougherty even talked about it in an interview when it was clear they were being rebooted.

A bulk of the story sounds like it was inspired from the comic book arc that was adapted into the "Superman vs the Elite" film where Superman was questioned several times on why he didn't supposedly do more for humanity when he has the means to, etc.

And yeah, i agree that I wouldn't mind seeing this type of storyline take place in future installments.

Since Amy talked about reacting to worlds that aren't there, do you think she might get kidnapped by Zod? Or do you just think she'll be reacting to CGI chaos?

^ I really hope she doesn't get kidnapped, to be honest... Obviously she'll be in some form of danger and Superman will save her. Just don't let her be kidnapped.

If what NTF said is true, then Lois gets taken up with Superman to Zod's ship as part of the deal that the US Army made with them.

Did NOT know that. Thought she was just saying goodbye to him. Oh well, we'll see how it all plays out.

I think that Zod wants Lois Lane so that he can make Superman do things he would never do, he would try to force Superman go against his wishes.

One of the first thoughts I had when Snyder was announced was 'Oh, Heat Vision is going to go crazy in this one'. I don't want Superman's eyes glowing red with anger (JUST when he's about to use HV) but I wouldn't mind if Zod and co used it like that.

I looove when Superman's eyes glow crimson. He has that whole angry god thing going on. But yeah, when I first heard it was Snyder I was thinking the same thing! I find it hard to believe that someone like Snyder wouldn't go crazy with the heat vision.

quick question: has Zach talked about how he will portray Superman's ability of flight?

Not much, I think, other than the CGI-approach.

In general I hope they'll handle Clark's discovery of his powers in an interesting way. I seriously hope for some creative new angles on how they're discovered and what wonderful, strange and funny situations that'll lead to.

Does young Clark sleep-fly/hover from dreaming about it, so they have to keep the windows locked at night.
Will young Clark sneak a peak into the girls' locker-room through the wall and get his first moral concerns?
Funny little details like that. And that second part would be a good way to help humanize him.

Reusing the title and just throwing numbers or RISES after it is stupid...hated how they just called it The Dark Knight Rises. That's a stupid ****ing name...ugh. **** like that grates on my nerves

No it had nothing to do with Superman vs the Elite that was based on Action Comics #775 story "What's So Funny About Truth Justice and the American Way" Joe Kelly who also wrote the script. It was just a fleshed out adaptation of the issue.
