It's very MARVEL-- tying your hero's origin to a primal failure like that.
I wonder what Goyer was thinking. In All-Star Superman

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Pa dies of a heart attack when Superboy is distracted by a threat. He only notices he can't hear Pa's heartbeat when it's too late, the lesson being he can't save everyone (despite yelling he can.)

It sounds like Costner Pa is at least partially to blame for his own death... I wonder.

Jonathan tells him twice that he needs to discover why he's here, and that he will change the world.

He's also scared of losing him and their last conversation indicates he wants Clark to take over the family farm.

It's not a consistent character arc.

I know this is the spoilers forum, but the last page belongs in the spoilers thread and not in here. If McGuire is the real deal it isnt simple speculation. But I thank you guys for spoiler tagging everything.

Curious about reviews, ran into zod spoilers. Awesome.

Yes, based on the trailers it is not surprising that Shannon and Costner are the best !


How would you rate Henry Cavill's acting on a scale of 1-10?

But onto the topic, I have another simple one: how was the cinematography and just the overall direction visually?
Remarkable. The flashbacks have the quality of a memory play. The action is super human, but very understandable and the geography is clear. Set design leaves a lot to be desired with regards to Smallville which looks like a set.

Interesting about smallville since they filmed it mostly on location.

You sir are awesome.

And I have one more question
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Is the black suit and dream sequence with Zod and Superman actually in the final film? And if so, how is that scene?

Mackenzie Grey's choice of a German accent for Jax Ur took me right out of the movie.

When he's allowed to be Superman he is fantastic.

When he has to be sad or confused, he is acceptable.

Ha, yeah, seems its still courtesy for the tags, as most have done. Still not the right thread though. But enough from me, I'll get out of this thread for a few pages and let this run its course. Good job on the question taking, from skimming the non-tagged stuff people seem pleased with what you're saying, so thats comforting at least.

Very cool of you William.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
About how long into the film do we finally see Clark in the suit?

Does it feel like it takes an eternity to get there?

Last one from me: is Lex mentioned beyond the Lexcorp building cameo?

It deliberately evokes Matthew 4: 1-11. One of only two Christ parallels in the film.

One thing I have learned is if you want to be any good at analyzing Superman comics, a classical education is essential.

The whole Zod thing sound so unrealistic since he is another superpowered kryptonian.I don't think people will buy into it.I think people will look at it as a flaw.Especially if superman wasn't trying to do it.

Man of Steel has many great things going for it. The characters are well developed, the story works, and the action sequences are phenomenal. If this is any indication of what DC is capable of producing then it is safe to say that Man of Steel stands as a symbol of hope for the future of films in the DC Universe.

7.75/10.

They'll do better when they don't have such a chip on their shoulders.

Comparisons, so you get a fell for what I like:

Superman 78: 8.5/10
Superman II Donner Cut: 9/10

Superman Returns: 6/10

Batman Begins: 7.5/10
The Dark Knight: 7.75/10
The Dark Knight Rises: 5.5/10
