Granted, imaginative ideas. But everything visually was so plain looking and boring.

I found the idea that sending convicts to Phantom Zone by trapping them in a dimension that is contained within a crystal which is then sent to float in void of space very innovative yet terrifying at the same time.

It had lots of great ideas, inspiring way through the years.

But when you look at it, and look at another Krypton that isn't Donner's, you know what's imaginative visually.

In terms of live action, there hasn't been any. Unless you go back to the serials - and they don't really hold up as imaginative.

Neo-medieval Krypton and a new language? I can dig it! Now I'm even more amped to see the fortress.

I wonder how long it will be before we get some promo shots of Superman.

It's understated and an acquired taste but I always give him a free pass because he's a great filmmaker. I'm bias!
Nolan is a great film maker, but he is a better storyteller than he is visual.

That is my biggest criticism of Nolan. In the name of "realism", he makes things look ugly. His suits are mundane.

I'm hoping after Nolan Batman gets rebooted with a director who can make a Gotham that looks and feels like "Dark City". Puts the Sci-Fi elements back in but takes the matter seriously. With a Retro and stylized look, similar to what Burton did, but without going Burton weird with certain things like CHUD Penguin.

Why so serious? Because that is what made the Nolan movies successful. Not his kneeling at the alter of the religion of realism, but the willingness to take the subject seriously, and not silly like Shoemaker did.

It is possible to have something be Sci-Fi/Fantasy, make things look good, AND still take the subject matter seriously.

Snyder makes things "look" cool on screen. He can take a subject matter seriously, and still let it be Sci-Fi.

That is why I think his Superman will be a success. He "fits" the task at hand.

Some people get the idea that a good director is good at anything, and a bad one is bad at anything, but that is not always the case. Often times its as simple as the director fitting the subject with his style.

That is why I am excited to see what his Superman looks like in post edit, with all the lighting and contrast and the final touches added.

Compare the behind the scenes shots of 300 to the post edit ones, and its a huge improvement.

We really do not know what Superman and his costume will look like in post edit mode. We don't even know what his physical presence will look like with the correct camera angles and distances yet.

Neo-medieval? I like the sound of that. I was actually anticipating it. Jor-El's costume was a pretty big hint.

I think it all sounds fantastic.

But then i've said many times that I was hoping Krypton would look as good as Asgard did, because I really loved how that world looked and felt.

I also think the neo-medieval thing is a good thing in terms of action. I mean, we know that there is a battle scene and we know that Zod and Jor-el fight, and that all fits best with this sort of neo-medieval society.

Neo-Medieval sounds like that phase when you're a kid and everything becomes about knights armor and stuff.

The Gods armor in the recent Clash was kind of like that to me.

I think this definitely rules out the Fortress being an ice castle though, doesn't it?

I'll be so pleased if that's true

Also, does anyone think that entry to the phantom zone could be similar to the gateway in Thor?

I imagine to it like Final Fantasy. A futuristic world blending into an old-fashioned world. Where the old style is still present, but giving a futuristic makeover.

Sorry, but that looks like crap. At least the 2 first ones. Not Superman-related at all IMO.

I hope it'll be more Masters of the Universe (the new show) than THOR. Or John Carter.
