Man of Tomorrow is good.

I feel like Last Son (of Krypton) is too good not to be the final film but then again, who saw "The Dark Knight Rises" coming?

So I have a question......Do the stars of any movie get paid anything when actually filming said movie, or do they have to wait until after the release? Silly question I know, but I've always wondered. I would think that they get a set amount just for showing up and then once the movie comes out, that's when the real money comes in.

Depends on the star, and the contract. They usually get paid a per diem rate during filming that is seperate from their contracted rate on the film (For living and food expenses) and then the majority of the money after filming but before the movie is released.

If their contract allows for it, they can get paid money on the back end depending on how much the movie actually makes at the box office.
For instance, Jack Nicolson actually negotiated to not only have a small percentage (Like 0.25 percent) of the box office take from not only the Batman movie he was in, but future Batman movies as well, even if he wasn't in them.

Stars also get a very small amount of money when the movie starts airing on TV. When I say small I mean VERY small. For instance, my dad gets a check in the mail for about 20 cents every time Wargames airs on TV. It actually costs more to mail the check.

EDIT: It's actually directors that have it made. It's almost standard at this point for directors to sign deals to get paid whether or not the movie actually gets made. For instance: Singer got paid for directing the Superman Returns sequel even though he never actually made it. Same for Tim Burton and his Superman Lives project.

I think we're getting a little ahead of ourselves here bit if we are to get sequels I don't see whas wrong with Man of Steel II to be honest. End of the day its the quality of the film not what its called. I never cared for the title Dark Knight Rises but I didn't give a crap it was called that.

I mean they are already doing the Dark Knight title thing with calling it Man of Steel. I just think it's cheap to throw a 2 or 3 at end of title.
For example
For awhile it was rumored that the spidey sequel would be called spectacular Spider-Man and now it's just being called Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Yawn

And it will hopefully be...spectacular.

Yeah... I prefer just "The Amazing Spiderman 2"! If the sequel is called "The Spectacular Spiderman", than it all of the sudden seems like a reboot of the reboot. I don't think it works. Keep it simple.

Man of Action sounds pretty lame and uncreative to me.

Lovely to see you 'round here, Jack.

Speaking of sentient robots and Men of Tomorrow...

Anyone familiar with Superman: Earth One, vol 1? Alien ship appears over Metropolis, giant robots & alien attackers wreak havoc, Superman saves the day.

Sounds like "Man of Steel," right?

At the end of Earth One, Superman interacts with the Kryptonian A.I. of the ship that brought him to Earth. The A.I./ship had a symbol very reminiscent of Brainiac.

Just sayin'.
