One thing I really really liked about Man of Steel was all the backstory created.
I felt real pain for Clark growing up. Jonathan & Martha not letting him play with other children for fear of them being hurt by Clark's powers leading him to be an outcast from the school and being teased and bullied.
Whilst I watched it I wanted to see more of young Clark's story.
And the amazing backstory for Krypton. I want to see more of that and I absolutely love the Jor-El/Zod relationship over all media. One of my favourites.
Yeah there are a few things that would've improved the film greatly. A few things that should've been addressed was a few scenes detailing the effect of destruction had on the citizens of Metropolis. This would've fitted well before cutting to Superman throwing that drone to the ground. Would've only added maybe 2 minutes max to the movie but would've made it better. The ending was absolutely incredible. As an origin movie it is up there
One of the reasons critics didn't like MAN OF STEEL is because of it not giving even the exact feeling they had while watching SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE. A number of them did the same thing with BATMAN BEGINS in comparing it to BATMAN (1989). These movies are of different generations, comparing these movies are like comparing how Burger King food was in like, the 80's to now. Which according to my mother was delicious.
Though it had an impossibility, i am glad one of the Green Lanterns didn't have a movie in the, for example, late 80's or anywhere in the 90's, because the critics would've very much destroyed GREEN LANTERN critically more than it already was which would have caused more gullible people to not want to see the movie, making the GREEN LANTERN sequel an improbability instead of a possibility.
Post Send; Did any of you gain news on something upcoming for Amanda Waller? Now we'll finally get straight to it confirmation on GREEN LANTERN's continuity.
I have no dislikes of MAN OF STEEL at all. Later in the first half of the movie, i was wondering why the characters aren't joking a litte more. Then i got to realize what's happening around them, and i noticed "Why would a saner person joke when these are occurring, when this in on the horizon?".
Then i realized, the jokes were put there when they need to be. Especially when the satellite fell to the ground and as Superman descended General Swanwick asked him, "What the "f" do you think you're doing!". That was one of the most silliest jokes i've ever heard.
And when near the end of their conversation when Swanwick is expressing unsurety of trusting Kal-El, he responds, "I grew up on a farm in, Kansas, that's as American as it gets.". That's a Kal-El joke. And the battles were the Superman scale battles that me and my bro have been waiting to see in live-action. I feel the same way with Hal Jordan's battle with Parallax.
Even Carrie Farris saying, "I just think he's, kinda hot." was a nice touch. And the special Easter Eggs were awesome. Through the WGBS building's appearance that confirms the existence of Darkseid, the oil rig being owned by Merrevale Oil an adversary of Aquaman's, those whales appearing (Aquaman can see through sea creatures' eyes), the Batman poster confirms that Bruce Wayne has been Batman for some time even the Blaze Comics building confirming that Micheal Jon Carter has made it to the present, and that the planned, SyFy's Booster Gold will chronicle the tales of him in the present.
If they keep "The Hood" reference in the script it will confirm that Arrow takes place in the DCCU and thus that makes the Flash from Arrow the Flash for Justice League.
They said no super people, but after MoS's release things prior to it are moving into connection with the prior superheroes being the Green's, L and A. L evident through the placing of that wormhole Hal's Ring opened.
What do you think?
