The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was making people overly interested in Superman's hair.

I can litterally talk about all aspects of the Superman look but the hair convo holds very little interest to me. That's just me though.

doesn't mean anything, but it is interesting to look at Man of Steel having that much more since IM3 first trailer was 50 million compared to 30 for Man of Steel.
Interesting, indeed. It shows the interest is definitely there (and rising!).

Post avengers, some people are thinking of Ironman like it's TDKR type of phenomenon, when it really isn't. The big trilogy ending send off will no doubt be more of the same old marvel episode. For better or worse. I think the poll is pretty telling. I just hope IM3 delivers, for Thors sake.

Yeah, I think it will make big numbers, no doubt. But i'm not sure how much more it will make when compared to the previous movies. Actually, I'd like it to have a big ''Avengers boost", because, if it doesn't, I can't see Thor:TDW having one too.

Quality wise I didn't think it deliever at all. I thought it was better than Iron Man 2 but only just. Money wise yeah its going to make quite a bit of dough. I think Thor 2 is going to be outstanding

Just wondering but has anyone picked this up yet?


My DK Superman guide is fairly old and quite out of date so was wondering if this one was worth getting?

I was wondering. Do we know for SURE that MOS is 2:28 hours long??? Or COULD it end up being even longer then that, maybe??? Imdb.com was the first out to list this running time. But has it even been confirmed by any one involved with this film yet?

Looking at the new trailer, I'm just thinking that there's so_much to cover in this film! Everything from Krypton. To the arrival on earth. To Little Clark's childhood, growing up in Smallville (which by the way I HOPE they will be spending more time covering than what is hinted at in trailers!). I hope to see a good chunk of time go by just to see how Clark grows up and how he handles school stuff, etc. This is Superman-REborn. They really have the perfect opportunity with this movie here to incorporate the best story ideas regarding smallville as well, before moving in to Metropolis. And then there will be the whole Zod coming to earth, before Superman emerges...

God, there's so much! Unlike with Superman Returns where everything seemed rushed (and incredibly enough still managed to be pretty boring), I desperately hope that MOS really takes its time telling this whole huge story just right! Therefor, I pray that MOS can do this properly with a running time of 2:28 hours - IF that is indeed the films true running time?

I really wouldn't have mind if this MOS had been 2:45 hours long...

I wouldn't mind it either, but 2:28 sounds like enough to cover all that stuff you've mentioned.

So guys drop your theories in here on how you think they have done it.
Having grown up reading countless stories that revolved around the ridiculous ways Superman would keep his identity a secret - including the use of super-ventriloquism and super-hypnosis - I'm hoping Nolan and Snyder have the good sense to drop the dual identities altogether. Clark Kent can be both a hero and Daily Planet columnist, a Kansas native called "Superman" by Metropolis tourists.

Yeah, out all of the post avengers movies, Thor has the most potential for an awesome sequel.

I'm not really sure... Superman the movie and batman begins were just about the same in running time. And while they did ok, I would want MOS to take somewhat longer time to cover those smallville years and experiences. But that's just me, I guess.

Why not? Having a man be unrecognizable under a pair of non-prescription lenses requires everything about the "Snyderverse" to differ from the world we live in. Cell phones, imaging technology, the Internet, even how human eyes work has to change in order for Clark to pull off this ruse. Clark's not a vigilante who needs to keep one step ahead of the cops. Personally, I think it would be a refreshing, albeit dramatic change to the character.

Perhaps Clark can wear a paper bag over his head, ala the Unknown Comic, when in his civilian guise.



Try to see through that one, people of Earth.

I dunno, it's hard to imagine the first alien life form on Earth publicly enjoying a career as a journalist when he's the biggest story himself. He would be hounded by other journalists, scientists, and regular every day folk on a daily basis.

How is something that Marvel is doing with pretty much all of the Avengers refreshing? If anything, the abandoning of the hero's secret identity is overdone right now.

Yeah I don't know how not having a secret identity could work if wants to try and live a normal life. Works in IM cause he was already famous and loves the attention.
