Agreed...when he was first announced as a director, I thought that we would finally get a modern day superman film where the director is not afraid to use regular saturation color filters that would highlight the colors within Superman's world, which is something that Singer didn't do.

Sadly, Snyder didn't and I keep asking myself if we'll ever see a Superman film where it's not desaturated by some bad filter.

All I know is that I plan on boosting the saturation level by A LOT when i get my blu-ray copy.

That's from perspective IMO.. its about tastes.. I like the realistic tones of MOS but I would like to the suit a little more brighter

I guess I'm th only one who liked the color palette, and who doesn't feel the need for Superman to look like a piece of flying candy.

Seriously, I hate superhero costumes. They're stupid looking to begin with. The bright colors just make them look even more ridiculous.

Has anybody posted video questions up on:

http://woobox.com/zqbm59/

This is the live fan event where you ask questions to Snyder and the cast

If so, then did anyone upload a video from your computer hard drive? Was your video playable on the site? Not sure if mine went through or not.

Anyone see this "Learn About Krypton" thing?

http://www.learnaboutkrypton.com/planetkrypton.php

It is presented as if it's after the events of MOS and is produced by LexCorp.

Yeah there's is some cool info in there about the planet itself -- population, size, etc.

Overall, two things stuck out in particular.

It's interesting that they refer to Rao as red even though it didn't appear that way in the film. Maybe the planet's atmosphere affected it's perceived color.

I love that they call back to the ship Zod left near the "fortress." It's nice to know they are follow such loose ends.

How cool would it have been if Superman didn't get his costume until the last scene of the movie. He fights all of the kryptonians in street clothes and at the end one of the last scenes is the flight scene for the first time in his suit. That would have been an epic way to end it.

The amount of people who would be whining about Superman not being in his costume until the end of the movie would dwarf the people in the "Why doesn't Thor wear his helmet", "Why does Captain America/Spider-Man have to take his mask off all the time" and the "There was barely any Bruce in the Bat suit in TDKR" crowds combined. And I gotta say... I'd sign up for that mob.

That must mean the movie wasn't good enough then. If you can't get past them actually building up the anticipation for him having his suit and truly being Superman, then the story being told couldn't have been that intriguing.

This hypothetical film of yours would have to be hypothetically one of the greatest super hero films of all times to overcome the back lash against the titular hero not appearing in their known outfit for the vast majority to the film's runtime. Hypothetically speaking.

Again, imagine the flight scene of the movie being the last scene of the movie. How cool would it have looked watching Zod and Superman fighting and crashing through buildings in street clothes. It would have led to the mystery of are these people humans or not. It would have been worth the backlash and make you look forward to the next movie with Superman in uniform. ALso, would have been true to Superman is not Superman yet.

Smallville was a TV show about Clark Kent growing up and pretty much had a plains clothes Clark fighting bad guys week after week…the payoff was supposed to be seeing the TV Clark in the Superman suit…which we got…from a distance and only in extreme close ups (aka not satisfying). He didn't become Superman until the last shot of the series.

I rewatched MOS again.

I was still on the edge of my seat and enjoyed it a lot, but I keep finding it difficult to remember stuff or take it all in, because I can't find much time to breathe in between certain parts and it feels very montagey and with the music blaring all the time.

It feels like I'm eating a filling meal, then after 30 mins, I'm eating another large meal and my stomach can't take it. It's a tasty meal but my stomach feels overwhelmed and it kinda hurts.

So, you would be against my idea? I mean I know of Smallville, but looked like crap to me. Tried to watch it one time and it sucked.

yeah it seems like it would be a good idea but i doubt people be happy with going to see a Superman movie and not seeing 'Superman' until the end.
