Slow motion should be reserved for a few key moments. Superman is not about acting "cool," posing, or dancing through highly-choreographed sequences.

In general, I think action is better when you keep it in real time, with semi "realistic" and hard hitting fights. Avoid the outright chaos of the fights in Nolan's Batman movies, but emulate their feel (the same feel that was used in the Bourne movies, as well as Daniel Craig's James Bond).

I'm fairly confident this movie is going to be shot in 3D. And don't mean the after the fact half ass conversion trend everyone jumped on this year after Avatar. I think it will be shot with the intention of it primarily being seen in 3D, like Avatar.

I imagine so. I hope the colors are brighter and the cinematography is cleaner than Snyder's usual fare.

You people forget Batman Begins looks quite stylized.




Its TDK that looks realistic.

But not over-stylized. And, tbh, besides the NArrows, there wasn't too much stylization. You took a close shot from BB and compared it to 2 wide ones from TDK. BB had shots that had a "realistically" (hate to use that word) shot Gotham.

Somewhere around Superman Returns would be nice. Stylized. But not over. Or Changeling. Or Catch me If you can.
Yes. I love art deco style.
and Snyder can direct non-overstylized shots I think. If you watch the trailer of Sucker Punch, the non-dream sequence looks quite good.

I liked the colorschemes and style in the new Star Wars-prequels (and nothing else) and wouldn't mind seeing Metropolis like Coruscant.




And add a little:




Would also like to see a slightly futuristic Metropolis, but NOT a dystopian one. Like mentioned the generel look should be bright and also crystal clear.

I think someone suggested Star Trek -- that look/cinematography would be just fine.

Indeed. I could pull out any number of shots from TDK showcasing how "unrealistic" it was and vice-versa with Begins (and yes, that's a pretty bad term to describe Nolan's films).

I'd like it to be insanely epic and stylized at least during the action scenes. I'm talking world of cardboard supes or Gurren Laggan levels of hot blooded stylized intensity.

I'm skeptical, because his prior work says otherwise.
capable?
you people do know that these directors don't actually handle the photography they just dictate it.

all snyder literally has to say to his obviously skilled dp is make it look like such and such and it will happen, it's as simple as that(for the most part).
and for the record, the previous looks of snyders films have been very much warranted by the source material. (a freaking frank miller book for goodnessake).

here's Snyder doing that oh so sought after less than stylized look.

Why did you pick Hong Kong for Dark Knight as an example?

I think Synder has great 'money shots' for his movies but sometimes it's a little distracting. He's like the opposite of Tony Scott: his films are obnoxiously frantic where as Synder's style is obnoxiously lucid.

But look at David Fincher: His films are stylised without being contrived. So I think Synder needs to calm down on the slow-mo but I agree that Metropolis should be more 'future' like. The city of tomorrow.

you must be referring to the two films snyder made that were adaptations of stylized graphic novels.

if you look at his whole body of work you'll notice his style varies to suit the mateiral. It's like judging the filmmakers of sin city for being over stylized. Snyder isn't stuck in his style.

we'll have to wait and see I suppose.

excactly, he'll make the Superman movie look the way which is best suited for the story and character.

for some reason i do believe it will be bright and colorful... not totally unlike but maybe similar to sort of Star Trek

Stylized, yes. Overstylized, no. Over- anything is too much.

LOL what?

I was bored by the end of Transformers 2. All the explosions and actions just made me so numb that I got tired of it.

I honestly thought the action in Dark Knight was perfect for that movie. They did a better job of shooting Batman fighting as well.
