So, just as I made my first post here yesterday about the upcoming Superman movie, the WB today release the first image of Henry Cavill wearing the suit for the upcoming “Man of Steel: No, Superman doesn’t have any kids”
I’m fine with the outfit… I am curious if they hired William Forsythe’s hair stylist though.
The one thing that kind of bugs me a little is that the setting of the photo seems to support the whole “darker and edgier” bullshit that Warner Brothers has apparently latched onto. Newsflash to Warner Brothers, people did not go to see Batman because it was dark and edgy. They went because it was true to the character (and that particular character happens to be dark and edgy) and because it was GOOD.
Honestly, just make a good movie and people will go to see it. Obviously we want to see a Superman movie if “Superman Returns: You Can’t Unsee This Movie” grossed nearly $400 million worldwide. Christ. Imagine if you released a GOOD Superman movie.
Superman is NOT dark and edgy. Well, except in some various elseworlds stories and whatnot. Oh, and Action Comics 775. Superman is optimistic! They call him the Big Blue Boyscout! C’mon… enough with the “dark and edgy”, it makes me think you’re simpletons.
Other than that, obviously they’re trying to set a tone from jump street that the movie will have lots of action, and that Superman will look different, and thus, hopefully BE different from previous iterations. Which is fine with me.
“Man of Steel: We Got a Real Actress to Play Lois Lane This Time” opens in June of 2013.
