I'm not saying this film shouldn't be intense and serious, but I find TDK to be too bleak for fair comparisons with MOS. If MOS has a BB/Iron Man level of seriousness, that could actually be appropriate. But it should set up an epic showdown which will leave the theater rooting for the true son of Krypton!

So where has that artwork come from?

The skulls stuff sounds different to what I assumed it was.

Oh, I agree about the showdown! ;-)... And I expect MOS to be way above a film like Iron Man. I'm expecting MOS to be in the same kind of god-like league as the batman films (and that's also what they're aiming for - no doubt). Iron man. Thor. Hulk. cap-A. They just don't match up when compared to bats and supes. These two DC characters just have bigger and more epic status.

I don't want MOS to be as dark as TDK. And it won't be. But I do want it to take it self seriously all the way through. And I DO wanna be feeling the same intenseness during this film, as I felt when waching TDK ;-)

In no way do I see Iron Man being close to what Nolan did with Batman. I'm talking about the batman films feeling like epics. Like Huge really BIG films. Along side classics like Saving private ryan, and Gladiator Epics. that kind of huge. No chance in hell does Iron Man come close to that. Iron Man is a very cool superhero film, yes. But where a film like TDK was so incredibly close to being nominated for Best Picture (and should've as well), this is something Iron Man will never obtain...

I fully expect MOS to knock the living **** out of all the Iron Man films. And I'm a big Iron Man fan.

Yeah, those who are expecting it to be as dark as TDK may be in for a suprise. It will no doubt go to some dark places, (ie human casualties onscreen, see screencap of blue antigravity beam for proof on that) but i think that the tone of both movies will be distinct. Similar, but distinct. Comments from Snyder, Goyer and Nolan indicate that they get that Bats and Supes are different characters with different themes. I believe they even said the movie wont be as dark as TDK or TDKR but has ALOT more action. Cant wait to see how accurate this is.

I love both companies movies as well. Idk why some people believe they have to choose between the two. They are all CBMs, so win-win right?

I agree that the Iron Man franchise is incredibly popular, but not quite on the level of the last batfilms. I'd say as far as popularity in movies goes, I'd rate Batman first, Spider-Man second, Iron Man third.

Again, this is just opinion and its not ment to disparage either company since popularity in the GA doesnt effect my opinion of movies.

^ i'd agree on the ratings of those superhero franchises :-) Spider-Man 2. Much above Iron Man for me. It's very very good.

Iron Man as a franchise so far is fun but uneven (so far) due to Iron Man 2. The second film showed the weakness of Iron Man as a property: he doesn't have strong villains. Hopefully, Iron Man 3 can fix that.

The artwork prints are actually posters from gbposters.com. The assumption is they're exclusively for Man of Steel. Here's the link: http://www.gbposters.com/related/Man...20Steel?page=1

Popularity with casual audiences...maybe. The actual film? not a chance, the actual character? again not a chance. You are talking about two characters all the way from the 30's who have been an integral part of pop culture ever since.

And i think what Naite was refering to was the sense of scale and tone, MoS won't take superman with a wink and a smile to the audience the way SR did, the way Marvel films thrive on doing. Some people don't like that...it's fine, but in my personal opinion, a film about Superman needs to feel REAL important, not just another superhero.

Good post

I do love the Marvel films but a Superman film needs to be so much more and it looks like they've achieved that.

I love all superhero film franchises, but I do recognise that Marvel films and DC films tend to differ, with a lot of the reason being down to the characters themselves and how they've been portrayed in the original comics. Both companies have had their epic character storylines but I always found Marvel always had more of an injection of humour, whereas DC took a slightly more serious and at times pragmatic approach.

It's a bit like comparing the Star Wars/Star Trek franchises. Both have huge fanbases, long histories, are set in space and have some iconic characters, but are extremely different in how they're executed ................. with the Star Wars franchise (arguably) having a lighter and more comedic tone at times, and Star Trek adopting a more serious and philosophical approach.

Both work for me, for different reasons .......... just like Marvel and DC.

Regardless of all this, we as fans have never had it so good when it comes to superhero films. There's an abundance of them, with studios happy to throw major money at them and modern computer effects making them more and more realistic. Sure, we get the odd stinker - but it's still a much better situation than 10-15 years ago.

Everyone can prefer Marvel or DC over the other, but why not be a fan of both? Marvel has a lot of good **** and a lot of dumb ****, same goes with DC. I'm more or less excited to see any superhero movie, regardless of which company it belongs to.

I feel that the whole Marvel vs DC mentality is what could cause WB to rush the League. It's not a healthy mentality. Maybe for comics, but not for movies. DC should just try to make great movies and go for the League when their ducks are gathered in a row.

That being said, I want Superman to OWN the summer.

Yeah I agree concentrate on making good superhero films and let the stars align so they can do JL in about 10 years, there really is no need to rush. This is why I hope Man of Steel smashes the box office that way they can see that you don't need to stick all these heroes in one film yet cause they sell on their own.

I'm not sure if its gonna win the box office but its definitely gonna be the best film this year and yes I am bias
