Same but it's still going to make a lot of cash. I'm tired of the Pixar follow up's and Brave was only decent. I can't argue with the business side of the sequel's because it's easy money for them. And this is coming from someone who loved Monsters Inc when I saw it more than a decade ago.

I watched the first one...thought it was cool, don't care for anymore though. Worrying about which movie does better is a waste of time and will only stress you out. The movies will do as they do...the best thing we can do to make sure Man of Steel does well, if it doesn't suck anyway, is to go see it multiple times and drag our friends and family with us...

Well when you put it that way I feel like an ass for wanting to go to the movies more often!

I just finally tried to watch Prometheus last night. It turned into 20 minutes of Prometheus followed by 22 minutes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse then another 10 minutes of Prometheus and then I went to bed.

The Ga loves eating up regurgitated material. One of the reasons why the majority of Hollywood films are **** these days. But that's a whole other conversation.

Anyway Mu will do well at the BO.

No, it's reinventing the steel.

But seriously, MOS still sounds and looks a LOT better than most of anything coming out of tinseltown these days, even when talking CBMs.

They will. Man of Steel isn't trying to be a big new type of superhero film. Man of Steel is just Nolan and Snyder trying to take an established character, put him in new settings, and make a pretty good film at the end of the day. I'm fine with that. And I'm not saying that Man of Steel is an attempt at a new type of Superhero film. If anything, Mos is taking a few tips from Nolan's TDK trilogy.

Thanks amigos. Yeah I agree we have to wait and see, but IMO the wait and hype (no forum-pun intended) will be worth it.

I recently spent a considerable amount of time laughing my butt off at the 'professional' critics of Cavill and his 'lacking performance' in MOS...despite them saying that everyone loved the film at the screening. So either everyone loved it and easily accepted that he was replaceable, or it just sucked. Which both sound like nonsense considering the grand preparation that has gone into this! The movie will certainly not be entirely carried by Cavill's performance because of the nature of the cast, but I am confident that he will bring the screen presence, visual strength and charisma to the role (even if people still can't take away the beloved image of CR as Supes). That in my opinion makes the screening rumor a bogus one.

Another thing I'm super pumped about is Snyder's straight-out-of-the-comic books style for movie scenes. Expect to see classic storyboards brought to life (I'm thinking of that All-Star Superman Jor-El speech thrown into the narration for the teaser), and epically cool action sequences in a realistic contemporary setting with the shooting they've done. (Cavill's own words).

Also I'm not sure if it's been brought up, but this looks like the kinda action I'm thinking about:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BJ1-trrgqc (especially 1:29-1:33!)
I'm pretty sure his fight with Zod will be on this scale, I mean at 2:52 Captain Marvel throws him into a bank safe, just like in the Man of Steel... Can't wait

Ha ha I do think if Man of Steel has a great opening and it gets good word of mouth it will sustain even with competition. But competition can be harsh, I think when MU comes out ill be a little worried as it could take a slice out of MOS box office takings but we shall see.

Keep your eyes on elmayimbe's Twitter feed. He's getting ready to drop some DC movie news very soon. Not sure if it's MOS related (doubt it), but I bet it involves Superman and Batman. Hopefully it's the rumored World's Finest rumor that's been floating around.

So El Mayimbe has hinted that his next scoop is JL related. Then he made reference to World's Finest. His latest tweets are:

Hmm. The last tweet got me thinking maybe...just maybe it has something to do with Wonder Woman. Could easily be just male casting but what if it's now Trinity instead of just World's Finest?

I hate the way he tries to build up hype for his scoops. It feels like an old timey circus promoter.
