Damn, Now I Have to Watch a Zach Synder Movie

Posted 7 years ago by Movies

I’m sure you’ve seen this a million times already, but just watch it one more time. Zach Synder usually makes movies I have little interest in watching, but I’ll be damned if Man of Steel doesn’t look pretty awesome. I can’t believe there isn’t a single shot of slow motion in the whole trailer.

It kind of sucks that we’ll have to sit through another origin story, but if it’s done as well as Batman Begins it won’t be that bad. Also, I’m way more excited than I should be about Richard Schiff being in this movie.

So, let’s discuss. What did you think?

  • Tim Briscoe

    My bigotry toward anything DC put my interest level for this film at about 20%. After watching this trailer, it’s about 90%. I love that they’re dealing with his powers as an adolescent. Michael Sheen looks great as Zod also.

    P.S. I’m writing this whilst wearing a Marvel t-shirt so I’m not really defying my allegiances.

  • Out of curiosity, why the aversion to origin stories?

    • I guess it just feels like we have to sit through origin stories so much more now that all these properties are getting rebooted.

      • True. Although, I often find that’s one of the most interesting parts of a characters story. I also think with a reboot of a franchise, a retelling of the origin story is necessary. Especially, when it’s been multiple years since the last film version of the character was in theaters. You’re going to get young kids going to this that know little to nothing about Superman.

        • Yeah that’s true. It would be cool someday to see a ‘reboot’ of a character like this that just picks up with an interesting story, and assumes that you at least know how they became a superhero. I think they could have done that with the newest Spider-Man for sure.
