Yeah plenty of great actors don't need to speak as a parrot. His presence, his faces if transmits emotion that's is acting.

I'm a Superman Returns disliker and didn't like Routh in the role but I did not agree with the "he never speaks!" criticism. I mean who gives a flying **** if he said a lot of words or not? If you wanna hear the protagonist say a lot of words watch an Aaron Sorkin movie.

Btw I didn't say Routh never speaks in SRs he just doesn't say much.

Cavill didn't have a wealth of dialogue either but he had plenty, I was merely pointing out that some have said he had less dialogue than Routh did in SRs when clearly he didn't.

It wasn't a comment on whether or not little dialogue matters, it was an observation of one of the critcisms people give the movie that is incorrect.

^Cavill definitely had more dialogue than Routh, I have watched SR a lot and getting there with MOS but Routh had less lines.

Both gave very good performances for me were they said a lot more with their facial expression than they did with their lines. I really hoped Brandon would get another shot at Superman but Cavill didnt disappoint me in any way in MOS, he was superb.

Agree ! Cavill did the business with a few looks and some primal grunts.
Like when Faora throws him through a few buildings into the vault door.

At first he looks at her and you can tell he's winded, then she gives that cocky little line about evolution and then we know Superman's pissed, with a mighty yell he slams her through a garbage truck.

Have to say, the battle of smallville was my favourite action sequence by far, as it was just as I'd imagine a fight between Superman and a couple of super-bad guys would be.

That bit where Supes punches Nam Ek four times, flies him up in the air and POW into the train yard, now that's just a straight up Superman move. It's a comic book brought to life. Thanks for that Zack Snyder, you're the man !

The Battle of Smallville is the greatest superhero fight scene of all time, IMO.

I wasn't really trying to attack anyone with my thoughts on the lack of dialogue debate, least of all you. It's a criticism I've heard for years now and it just irks me and I lash out. I don't even believe I was really responding to your post but it's been a few days so who the hell knows? lol You're a cool guy so no worries.

I think I kinda defend Returns at times because eventhough I really don't like the film and love to give it **** on occasion, I do think that there are some unfair criticisms lobed at the film. Also I'm very protective of Superman Returns fans in general because I love posters who like or love that film. I think I'm way off topic so whatever.

Yeah I enjoyed the Smallville Battle very much. IHOP fight FTW.

Absolutely ! Clearly Snyder must have read a bunch of comics when working out the fight choreography, and really thought through how
it would look on the big screen. Having the army there makes a nice
contrast, between the indestructible Kryptonians (when they fight its
the scenery that suffers) and humans. Shows off just how powerful they're meant to be, as Faora wipes out the soldiers like bugs.
Again, nicely played Snyder.

Some times I wonder if this film will be one of those films, where it had received mixed reactions upon its debut, but as the years went by... people started to look at the film from a better perspective.

I think it gets better with every viewing and its a testament to the filmmakers that you discover new things everytime you see it. You could probably watch the film with the sound down and get so much story just from the visuals, there is so much in there.

kinda reminds me of a part in the MOS behind the scenes footage where Zack Snyder just played the scene where Supes is about to destroy the world engine with just the musical score playing. EPIC!

Yeah with the World Engine. You can tell how much Snyder loved that part.

I think a lot of people are forgetting that Man of Steel is just an introduction to something bigger. Zack Snyder himself said you just can't make one Superman movie. can't blame them since people are used to standalone movies with new enemies every sequel with forced connections to each even if they are part of a series or universe. if you thought of that you can appreciate the movie even better, think big!

It deserves to be, some of the vitriol it gets from Marvel fanboys (I am more of a Marvel fan myself when it comes to comics, but I love Superman and the hardcore MCU lovers are just ridiculous) is totally unwarranted and downright silly at times. The movie has problems, and I often point them out, but the good outweighs the bad so much.

The thing that I had loved hearing the most from Snyder, when he was promoting this film, was that he was wondering and talking about how they could use the "Superman Universe" to help bring in new DC characters and how to further expand the DC universe. It kind of makes the notion that the big things of the DC Universe may somehow revolve around the character in a way.

That would seem fair enough, as Superman was pretty much the first superhero and kind of the standard by which the rest are measured.

I say bring on Benedict Cumberbatch as Brainiac !

Hope they stick with a Budweiser-drinking, t-shirt and jeans wearing
NFL watching, doing the dishes for mom , Superman. I love how Snyder and co made the character so down to Earth, I still love Chris Reeve's portrayal of the nervous, uptight, suit-wearing Clark, but this new interpretation of Superman, as rougher around the edges, it really works.
Glad they did it this way, and hope they continue.

Was doing the dishes today, listening to "Seasons" by Chris Cornell.

It occurred to me, in the scene which features this track (Clark coming ashore, lifting the clothes and wandering through town, transition into the
bus ride, saving the kids ), maybe "Seasons" which is the track playing
, was on the car radio or something, so it was actually playing somewhere in the context of the film (although it did really set the mood for that scene perfectly) because it would fit really well in terms of the film's chronology.

Here's why. Music can be a powerful trigger for memories. The song came out in 1992, which was probably about the time of the bus accident (as Dylan Spraybury played a 13 year old Clark Kent, and Superman arrived on Earth in 1980, because he's 33 in 2013).
Anyway, he hears the song and sees the bus, and thinks back to the accident, which would have happened in 1993 (maybe it's actually playing on the radio on the bus). Nice one Snyder, subtle.

And of course it's an awesome song, I think I posted about it in this thread already. Chris Cornell rocks !

Its not my type of music but I love it in the film, I kind of see it as a nod to Smallville although that probably wasn't the filmmakers intention but I'm glad I get that feeling from it.

I loved that too. This Superman was a rugged country boy. I hope they still keep that for Clark in BvsS.

Completely. He looks like a guy who grew up on a farm in Kansas, whereas theres a total disconnect between Chris Reeve's adult Clark and young Clark.

Good going Snyder !

Well, that might be explained by spending 12 years in the Fortress of Solitude.
