I absolutely LOVED that short! I saw some comments on the EW website that were saying "it doesn't have enough Lois". I'm like "you know this video is about Superman, right? #kthxbye".

Yeah. It would've been hard to represent Welling's portrayal given that he only was shown with the \S/ on his chest for like 0.001% of the series.

Kinda wish Quitely's All Star Superman was in there. I mean, I'm sure you could go on all day about what artist's version/iteration of Supes might have been left out, but I really feel like All-Star was the Superman comic of the 21st century thus far.

Kinda crazy 3 seconds towards the SR rendition isn't in there... pretty good short overall except for that omission. Agreed on red/blue Supes split comment, SR spot time could have easily replaced that obscure (not really critical to the character) part overall.

The New 52 part makes me hope a new cartoon is in the cards. I've been without a good Superman/Justice League cartoon for too long.

They could've shown an animated Welling with the trademark Red Jacket/Blue Shirt and Jeans look(below) and having him running and super-speeding before flying up into the sky and becoming new 52 Superman though.

They wanted to include everything but couldn't that's why LnC, SR and Smallville didn't make the cut

Did anyone know besides the Wayne Enterprises logo, there's a "Keep Calm and Call Batman" poster in MoS?



I just verified this just now with my own copy of MoS as well, mind is blown

In the STRONG CHARACTERS, LEGENDARY ROLES featurettes on the Blu-Ray, Russell Crowe had some interesting comments about the how of Jor-El and his purpose for his son. To quote him, "Jor-El's a bit mad."

Wow, just saw this film on Bluray. That was fantastic. It felt a little too fast-paced for me and I couldn't breathe much but wow, what a thrill ride.

In the film, you'll recall that Amy Adams' Lois Lane leaks her story about Superman to a rogue, random blogger named Glen Woodburn. But as Goyer shares, he actually wanted to use someone from the DC-verse.

"[Glen's name is an] 'All The President's Men' reference for sure. I wanted that character to be Jack Ryder, but DC comics wouldn't let us do it," the screenwriter explained. "I don't remember the issue that stopped it from happening, I think it was a rights thing, but we only found out three weeks before production started so we had to think quick. I wasn't going to go for [sometime Batman love interest] Vicki Vale, but I was desperate to come up with a new character that would work. In the end, this is how it happened, and we got to have fun with the Wikileaks thing too."

In case you wondering, Jack Ryder is also known as The Creeper, a Gotham City reporter turned superhero, who fights in the same masquerade party costume he wore the night he was injected, against his will, with a serum giving him the powers he now possesses. In one stretch of comics, he actually used to date Vicki Vale, and more intriguingly, in another run of stories, Lex Luthor runs a public campaign to convince citizens that people with powers are alien invaders, leading to Ryder's imprisonment. But generally, The Creeper is a villain for Superman and it's yet another doorway left open for future films. But as Goyer notes, most of what he wrote wound up in the film.

i feel the same way... some of the drawbacks of this movie is indeed how it was filmed...

i understand the reason behind why Snyder wanted to film it the way he did (to have that handheld feel to it, an "I'm right there in the fray" feeling), but it doesn't transfer to blu-ray all too well. the zooming into the picture is still distracting and disappointing.

hopefully for the next movie, when it comes to cinematography and filming, Snyder gives it a more grounded and solid feel- more still filming sequences rather than jerky film sequences. that's a big part of this that is a disappointment. i still love the movie, but this is only one of the things that i now see that hindered this movie from being better.

As much as I love this movie, and believe me it's a considerable amount, I must agree. Whenever I first heard Snyder was directing, I was most excited about how he would bring his visual flair to superman. MOS was beautiful IMO, but I think it would have benefitted from a more traditional Snyder approach, as many in here have already stated. Having said that, I can't wait to get my hands on the blu ray.

Yeah, I felt a bit dizzy after watching. I wanted more slow shots and stuff. But I loved the film overall. Just needed it to calm down a bit in terms of pacing.

I am glad to see someone acknowledge Woodburn as an "All the President's Men" reference.

I wish they could have had Brandon Routh's Supes walking into that machine gun fire from SR, it couldn't have been that hard to include, could it? Nevertheless, a terrific short.

I wrote this on the blu ray thread, but yeah try taking screenshots of the movie and you will realize almost every second frame is blurry or out of focus.

Snyder is actually known for his beautifully composed tableau-y shots from 300 and Watchmen, its unfortunate that he abandoned that style to go for realism which simply meant shaky cam.

I don't think it was intentional...there are so many artists and film verisons that all of them couldnt be put in.
