Superman Lives! ‘Man Of Steel’ Sequel Reportedly In Development At Warner Bros.
  |  

Three years after it launched DC Comics’ cinematic universe with a $668 million global box office gross, the Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot Man of Steel is finally getting a standalone sequel, as an unnamed source familiar with the developing film at Warner Bros. told Umberto Gonzalez at The Wrap.

Plans for a sequel were changed not long after Man of Steel was released in the summer of 2013 when Snyder announced at that year’s San Diego Comic-Con that the follow-up would pit Superman against Batman. The end result, released this past March, was Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which also featured the first appearance of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and Cyborg.

Zod Actor Michael Shannon On ‘Batman v Superman’
  |  @   |  

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice hit theaters this past weekend, and so far we’ve posted two reviews that did not speak favorably about the film. Zack Snyder‘s follow-up to Man of Steel currently has an astonishing 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, while the audience score stands at 73%. And let’s not forget that Sad Affleck meme. Looks like Snyder has successfully created yet another polarizing film where the apologists will be working all hours of the night to convince you that this is the best movie, even better than anything Marvel could come up with.

“What have you done?”

You know those combination Pizza Hut/Taco Bell fast food places where you can get a Pepperoni Lover’s® Personal Pan Pizza and a Doritos® Cheesy Gordita Crunch with a Mountain Dew Baja Blast®? Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is kind of like that, except the pizza is a soggy, overloaded sadness pie and the Cheesy Gordita Crunch is deep-fried in sweat and dread. So, your standard Taco Bell experience I guess.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, Watchmen), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is both deadly serious and aggressively silly. It’s a heavy-handed treatise on post-9/11 America written on a Quesalupa wrapper; a soliloquy on sacrificing freedoms for the illusion of security, delivered by a GameStop manager between trade-ins of LEGO Batman 3.

Don’t get me wrong: A movie about the ideological divide between Batman and Superman could be compelling, but that isn’t this movie. There are no heroes in this movie, only violent psychopaths trying to one-up each other in the “right-wing nutjob” department. This isn’t a battle of ideologies; it’s a war for bragging rights. These guys aren’t fighting for justice – they’re gunning for the highest body count.

Mark Millar Says Zack Snyder’s ‘Man Of Steel’ Is Too Violent
  |  @   |  

We all have our qualms about the final fight scene between Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod (Michael Shannon) in Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel. Some of us may like it, but the majority feels that it strayed too far away from what Superman stands for. Even the level of destruction that Metropolis went through seemed a bit over the top. Regardless if you think Supes killing Zod is okay, or that DC’s major city laid in ruins, like it or not, these events have helped shape the DCCU.

Now, one of comic books most infamous writers has come out to criticize Superman’s most recent origins story. Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service) has admitted that he isn’t a fan of Man of Steel, and has compared the film to Sylvester The Cat catching Speedy Gonzales. More on the story below.

David Goyer Defends Killing General Zod In ‘Man Of Steel’ (Again)
  |  @   |  

At this point, one would think we have moved past the fact that Superman (Henry Cavill) killed General Zod (Michael Shannon) in Man of Steel, two years after the release of the film. So if you still harbor any ill-will over such a decision, then you are not alone. But director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David Goyer had to defend Supes killing Zod on numerous occasions, both citing that the hero was put in a difficult situation and forced to make an equally difficult decision. Whether or not you agree with this, it’s clear that Superman’s actions in Man of Steel have had a polarizing effect on DC fans.

But it appears that some still haven’t gotten over their non-killing hero killing someone in cold blood. So Goyer is once again defending Superman killing Zod, because the events leading up to that moment justify Superman’s actions and “that’s the right way to tell that story.” More on the story below.
