man of steel trailer got me on a major superman kick. i bought all the hd-dvds on amazon and finished returns tonight.
i cant put my finger on why exactly, but i dont really love any of these movies. i think a large part of it is luther being too cartoonish for me. superman returns follows the formula of sequel as a remake. where the writers rehash every character, plot device, and antagonist.
michael shannon is playing the villan in man of steel. hes been in boardwalk empire, take shelter, pearl harbor, bad boys 2. i hope it helps dc gain some footing.
dc/warner just bug me the bejesus out of me. they own all the characters, but they cant cohesively put them together the way marvel is doing. with the dark knight trilogy as a sort of guide for the new superman movie(s), they should have followed that lead with green lantern too. he is more similar to most marvel characters. he should have existed in christopher nolans universe. it looks like man of steel very much will so it will be interesting to see where the others fit in. green lantern and batman reboots are apparently underway. id have liked to see jgl's blake play batman or possibly nightwing. that would allow them to keep making batman movies but to not have to remake films.
