    Watching 3 Musketeers (the one with O'Donnell, Charlie Sheen, Oliver Platt, Keifer Sutherland and TIM FREAKING CURRY!! :awesome:) and I just remembered these famous last words, which I hope will be reiterated by all the naysayers when MOS Hits:

    "I might have been mistaken."

    While i don't feel MOS will be the best superhero film we've seen, i do believe 2 things.
    1. It will be the best film interpretation of Superman
    2. It will contain the best tone of any comic book film. What i mean is, Zack and co. will have created the perfect balance between realism and fantastical.

    I love Nolan's series, i hold it in high regards. However, i feel Nolan went a bit too realistic in some aspects, when it comes to the three films. Because his series was rooted in such a realistic surrounding, we didn't get to have fantastic villains like Riddler. I still feel The Riddler could have been portrayed as a psychotic, destruction hungry man, who with each clue, would have a public bombing if his riddle wasn't solved.
    I'm going off a bit topic, but i'm hoping the next reboot of Batman has a few more fantastical elements thrown in. The reboot will have to if it wants to be part of a Justice League Universe.

    I'm rambling :oldrazz: Just had to get that out of my head.

    One thing we haven't seen is how X-Ray vision will be depicted. What do we think would be the best way to go about this? I can't remember it in SR. Smallville's was pretty cool I guess.

    Agreed. If MOS doesn't turn out being the best CBM, it will at least be the perfect CBM to date meaning that it has the perfect balance in its tone between realism and fantasy. It looks like they created a world where literally anything can happen and exist, which is even more fitting if MOS really is the start of a shared universe.

    The way I see it, Nolan has perfected storytelling in CBM's not only by creating ones that the general audience can fully take seriously but also by finding the perfect balance between movies that stand on their own and that still have continuity & things set up for future sequels in there at the same time, with the only thing missing is that element of fantasy. MOS seems to be following doing the exact same thing only adding that fantasy element in creating a world where anything can happen, creating the perfect CBM.

    Also, are you sure the Riddler is the best example of that though? Because Riddler would've fit in perfectly. He's not any more out there than the Joker was. I think you meant someone like Clayface, Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, etc.

    Anyone know how the Walmart screening gross will be calculated? This doesn't seem to be tied to Rentrak, maybe WB will report it separately.

    Quick back of envelope calculations, taking 8$-9$ for non-3D and 11$-12$ for 3D means a potential 10 million gross just from the 7pm show. Even if only 50-75% of tickets are sold for the 7pm show through Walmart, that means a 5 million to 7.5 million gross from just the Walmart special shows. Of course, the extra merchandise sold will benefit Walmart and the MoS merchandise partners.

    If the sales are good (like i said, 50-75% tickets sold of all available tickets), this may turn out to be a really successful promotion.

    And that's why I am pissed. Nolan could have included him, no problem. :oldrazz:
    Lol but yeah, not quite the right example.
    Let's replace my Riddler example with Ms. Ivy.
    I'm hoping Steel opens the door for the DC cinematic universe. I would love a Batman reboot with the tone of let's say, Bruce Timm's series.
