Basically it's like we're all wanting the impossible: For Christopher Reeve to return
Returns didn't just lack wall-to-wall action, it lacked any sense of excitement, danger, or anything.
The massive mess of a production leaves Superman II as a flawed gem. It's the visions of two different directors, one good, one decidedly less so. It's still a better film than Man of Steel. I haven't revisited SR since I first saw it in theaters, but I'm a by fan of Bryan Singer, I think I'll take it over Snyder's film too. STAS looks better and better every year.
What trade is that in?
That story is in The Greatest Superman Stories Ever Told trade. It has a painting by Alex Ross for the cover and it was recently reprinted. It's also in the new Superman 75th Celebration hardcover that DC comics just put out.
I have to agree with what someone said a few posts up. I watched Superman Returns a few nights ago and while I actually did get swept up in the heavy nostalgia is permeates, it is lacking. Man of Steel to me was more enjoyable despite a few glaring issues (one at least is being addressed in the sequel). Cavill was easily the superior Superman as well and the same goes for Adams over Bosworth.
Also, there's a new "Everything Wrong" vide from CinemaSins for Man of Steel and it's pretty good:
Everything Wrong With Man Of Steel In 8 Minutes Or Less - YouTube
Try telling all this to Snyder Nolan and Warner Brothers
An interesting look at Man Of Steel. Screenrant has listed the film as the best superhero movie of 2013. No surprise there, but a lot of people do not agree:
Why 'Man of Steel' is the Best Superhero Movie of 2013
There are some good points made, yes, but some of his opinions seem more driven by things outside the actual movie itself.
It was an interesting read. Pretty much if you loved MoS the article is music to your ears if you hated it you probably wanna call Kofi an idiot. If you were on the fence and just a disappointed movie goer the article doesn't compel you to reconsider your opinion.
I really enjoyed the article, and I agree with most of his points. I hate when people complain about the final battle. It was exciting, and itdidn’t power down the characters like so many other CBM films. Like the guysaid, you can’t really claim that Iron Man 3, Wolverine, or Thor had betterfights at the end.
And he is also right about Man of Steel being less of apopcorn film than Iron Man 3 or Thor 2. Yeah, they were more “fun”, but thatdoesn’t equal better or anything.
And I’m tired of the complaints regarding Zod’s death. Likethe guy points out, Zod was also killed in Superman II AND the comics. So thefilm was being faithful. And peoplestill didn’t like it. But In Iron Man 3, when they change stuff, people callmurder. Geez, some people.
