I'm not reading any of it just in case its true. Just like I ignored the trailer description that was spot on. So glad I didn't read it bc it sounds like some of us in here that did didn't enjoy as much as they probably would have had they not.

Indeed, I read it and paid the price. It's why I'll avoid the next description like the plague itself. Hopefully nobody in here ´´forgets`` to use the spoiler tags when the inevitable description hits.

Sounds like you guys already read this/posted from CBM

Verendus, a few days ago posted a review of Man of Steel on a message board at neogaf.com. There he says he went to a test screening about two weeks ago. He claims that he isn't a comic book aficionado, but has seen the Donner films and the Justice League animated television show. What you will read below is a portion of his review. I am leaving out the heavier spoilers, but if you would like to view them click here.

The story is simple, and executed better for it. You're basically presented Clark Kent as a boy/man going through changes and having an internal conflict about his identity. This character arc has a two step resolution. The first is him coming to terms with his role as a potential protector of humanity, a conflict fueled by various events in his life, which brings us the first amazing and climactic point of the movie with the birth of Superman. The second is the reality of the existence of Superman on humanity and him coming to peace with what that means for him and how he is perceived. This obviously brings us the major climax of the movie, supported by an ass whooping.

The action is great in the movie. There is fair bit of it. It feels like The Matrix. By that, I mean it's quite over the top. This is good because it's Superman. There are a lot of little touches that are shown by Henry Cavill which give more gravitas to the vulnerability of Superman. Moments where he's shaken or staggered. They're just cool moments. The action is both slow and fast which gives an effect of something superhuman occurring. In terms of action, there are about four major setpieces. Then there are a lot of little action moments in between. It really does feel like the first time Superman has been done justice in live action. There is one moment near the end where you will go, this is [frick]ing Superman. It's basically the climactic moment. I'll have to re-watch Avengers, but I think I enjoyed the action in this movie more than any other superhero movie because it just had a lot of weight behind it.

You want Superman to succeed.

Henry Cavill is Superman to me now. I like his take on the character. I don't really care necessarily how Superman/Clark Kent is in the comics. But Henry has a really good performance and brings a new Superman for the modern era. One who is powerful, strong, and inhumane in ability, yet also relatable and earns our sympathy. Also, he looks so much more awesome with the beard. It would be amazing having a Superman with a beard. Let him be clean shaven as Clark Kent, but then when he goes all manly and turns into Superman, he grows a beard instantly too. You get used to seeing Cavill without the beard, but it's so weird. Like he was born to have that beard.

Also, damn Zod is badass. Too badass. He comes out with some next level quotes. I don't even--




The weakest aspect of this movie is the Lois Lane/Clark Kent/Superman relationship. I don't think Amy Adams turned in a bad performance, but in a movie which is quite tight and focused, this aspect was the weakest link. It kind of sticks out. The character on her own is fine, and her little crew are a very pleasant addition, but I think they could've stopped going Hollywood and left a little of the relationship development to a second movie.

Supporting cast is strong. Kevin Costner is really cool. The My-Cocaine of this movie. He's not in it very long, but maybe I like those father figure characters. Also, Morpheus being all Morpheus and being pretty cool again.

The music is very nice. At times slow and emotional, and at others sweeping and epic. The new theme is good. Different, but good. It fits the Man of Steel.

I think I chose to compare this to Batman Begins for a few reasons. It feels similar, it's also character focused, and it does a fantastic job of making you anticipate the next movie. There is a nice blend of serious character focus, and lighthearted humour in the movie. The villains for the sequel are somewhat hinted, and this is a really strong first outing. I'm definitely curious to see what happens with the sequel. They could make an amazing movie like The Dark Knight, or like Iron Man 2, turn out a pile of crap after a solid first movie. Who knows, but as it stands, there will be hyperbole when people see this move. I'm sure of it. That's because it's good, and one of the best superhero movies. More importantly, it's brought Superman from being that little pussy who is always in the shadow of the Goddamn Batman, to more of an equal standing.

For a project that is so secretive everyone seems to have a source that has worked on the film or been at the screening.

For the record, I recall Deadline breaking the story about Nolan godfathering Superman around Feb 9 2010. The Latino Review had their story around Feb 24 and it was partially true. No Lex Luthor or Braniac. Then March 1 2010 Nolan broke his silence to the LA times and confirmed he and Goyer were working on Superman. That's how I remember it.

Me too. The PLAGUE. Major avoid. Like the one going on in Egypt yesterday with over 30 million locusts. Creepy... but just like that.

This elmayimbe duder seems like a very angry fella. It's as if his track record was 100% pure holy water full of correct scoops. How dare some lowly human try and debunk HIM?!

It just reeks of unprofessional-ism. At the end of the day, one will be proved right and the other wrong. No amount of mud slinging will change that, and in the meantime elmayimbe and whoever else just comes across as really juvenile, like really, this is the guy everyone's getting all this exclusive news from?

This elmayimbe character is having a "twitter beef" with the guy over at CBM about legitimacy. It's hilarious.

They are trying the silent type approach. Which is better than the Green Lantern overhype approach, but I think something in the middle would be nice. Monsters University already has character sheets, plot detail spoilers, and a full clip.. and it comes out LATER than Man of Steel. All I want this month is a Faora still or something.

Iron Man set reports and new trailer drop today. Don't expect anything MOS related until at least Wednesday. But Thursday/Friday is better bet.

Wait a minute. Is this the same Poni Boy that reported about Cavill's lacking performance at the MOS screening?

Did you talk to only a handful of people or alot of people from the screening? Did anyone like Cavill's performance?
