Just saw Man of Steel! Other than Michael Shannon’s disappointing acting I really liked it. I think its a really interesting direction to take Superman. Plenty of people complain that it’s not the Christopher Reeves Superman but that’s ok. We’ve done that already.
I enjoyed the casting for everyone but Zod. Normally I’m a huge Michael Shannon fan but he really felt like he was in a comic book movie. His lieutenant was much better.
Also it seemed to be MORE violent and destructive then it needed to be. However, Snyder said all along that his goal was to make a REAL Superman. If you had Supermen fighting it out in a city there would be massive destruction.
I’m looking forward to some sequels to this.
