Superman flying vertically and winding up a punch at a armed up villain is probably what he was referring to.

In hindsight the trailers for Returns were pretty lame. Especially the one where Lex screamed "wrong"
All this has to do is "look" better than that and it will peak interest.

That’s really good! Just 1% behind IM3! I don’t understand why Hunger Game is so damn popular. The movie is so boring and poor. Same as twilights.
Btw, is THor 2 coming out this year too?

^^ THG books are miles better than the film. But that's the case with most adaptations.

I watched it in DVD. And I couldn’t finish it. Plain and boring. Can’t understand why so high the demand to watch the sequel.
Btw, why the sequel of THG and the Hobbit can come out so quickly? Just a year after the 1st movie!!!

I gotcha, but I wasnt even referring to him. It was for everybody in here on the dom. take guess totals...

We haven't seen Superman fight anyone in over 25 years on the big screen...smallville and DvD animated films don't count. So i'm not sure what you mean by its boring and been done...

I don't get it either. The Hunger Games is just a rip off of Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Running Man in sheep's clothing. I went to see it for my girlfriend and was like wait a minute... really?

Smallville def doesn't count. Especially when all they ever had Clark do was push people and never throw more then one punch at a time. The women however, They Fought! Lois, Lana, Tess, Chole... they kicked A$$! MMA style.

And please lets not mention the Quest for Peace and the word fight ever again. lol that arm wrestling mess they did in IV was atrocious. He Scratched Him... Scratched... hahaha on the neck no less, with his long press-on nails and made Supes deathly ill. lmao!

All of your the *****ing about The Hunger Games isn't going to make Superman do any better at the box office and also they are coming out nowhere near eachother so what's. the point of complaining about that film in this thread?

I guess that's. the nature of some fanboys, trash another franchise because it's going to make more money than the franchises you like. I mean I think that Thor is boring and stupid but I'm not going to trash it's sequel just because some people might be looking forward to it more than a film I want to see.

And that Yahoo poll means absolutely nothing.

What has that got to do with anything I said?? I personally think its a rip off that's it. Was it entertaining, yeah I thought it was fine. My girl read the books and gave me some insight where otherwise I wouldn't have cared.

What's happening is some 'fanboys' and girls and all those outside and in between, get butthurt if someone else says something opinionatedly negative about something they like. So they feel like they need to run defend it like they wrote it or staring in or producing it. I don't care one way or another about how much money Hunger Games makes. If it makes more hurah for them.

I just want more MOS on covers and in pages. Point blank.

It's 2006 all over again, when Superman fans bash every movie to prop up the new Superman movie. Ahh bad times.

It's still baffling to me how that film sold almost as many domestic tickets as Nolan's third Bat film.

Good point Showtime.

Let me revise then, to predict that domestically the movie will gross 350 mil, and internationally will pull in in the area of 400 mil -- for a very healthy worldwide total of 750 million, which of course WB would be ecstatic with.

True, but when they Made Thor it was under the presumption that it would be followed up by the Avengers, so there was already a built in advantage with the studio knowing that the Character would be featured in an almost surefire blockbuster hit, regardless of how well Thor fared at the box office. Because of this, a sequel was almost a foregone conclusion before the original movie was ever shot.

The same cannot be said for Superman, regardless of whether Cavill participates in the Justice League picture or not. For starters, there is no guarantee that Justice League will approach the same numbers that the Avengers did.

MOS needs to pull big numbers, because at this point, there are no guarantees.

If MOS flops box office-wise, I doubt that even a successful Justice League movie featuring Cavill would be enough to greenlight a sequel to MOS.

I can definitely see that. I think that's the number I will settle on. That sounds about right.

It's always debatable rather a movie is good or not. I've hated movies that most audiences loved and I've loved movies that audiences hated. It's obviously about opinions.

Back to thread topic:

Don't see 300mil domestic happening. I say at most it does 275mil. I think that 400mil overseas isn't a bad perdiction though.

exactly!!! The “boring & been done” isn’t from me. It’s the film maker’s perception! And persistently!!! That’s why been 25 years we still haven’t seen a good fight of superman. We might now joke sarcastically on the so-called “pseudo prison rape scene” in SR. but the film maker really thought it’s gonna sell at that time. They made it as the climate of the movie!!! They ever invited the medias when filming that scene!!! You know…
And if you have read some of the abandoned scripts, you would have known that This is WB’s / their perception on how to treat superman proper and good.

I can’t recall now. I do remember I hate the “Lara getting raped, suit in can, shoes seller Lex, lois- obsessed superman” though.
Well, my main point is they seem reluctant to do it the traditional, the faithful way in the past 20+ years.
They are so possessed to reinvent the wheel. “Nicolas cage as superman, Tim Burton as the director“ is the perfect example. With one of the most horrible scripts that I have read.
And no joke. They were this close to start the filming… with the pre-production all ready for the shoot…
