There’s little question that Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel is, at least on the surface, the movie that fans have been asking for. It has a solid performance from Henry Cavill in the lead role, a few great talents orbiting him in important supporting roles (notably Amy Adams, Kevin Costner and Michael Shannon), and the biggest, hardest-hitting depiction of super-powered action ever to hit a movie screen.
For some people, that — along with a detailed, wild vision of Krypton, and a revision of Superman’s origin — is probably enough to lock this as one of the best screen incarnations of the character. There’s a lot more than that to talk about in Man of Steel, however. So weigh in below, and tell us what you think of the film. Spoilers are encouraged below.

Many TV spots do little more than rearrange footage from a film’s primary trailers into 30-second bites. And that’s fine. But the Man of Steel TV spots have been giving up perhaps more new footage than usual, and this third spot has quite a grand scope packed into half a minute.
The capper is a shot of one very angry Superman (Henry Cavill) as he flies into action, but there are also some quick new shots of Michael Shannon as General Zod, and some action and effects bits that we haven’t seen before. All in all, it’s probably the most epic TV commercial that will be airing this month, so have a look below if you haven’t already seen it. Read More »

Now this new trailer shows not only what happens when Zod’s plan doesn’t go off in quite the way he hopes, but who Superman is and what makes him tick. Thankfully, all of that results in a lot more action. Read More »

For the past several decades, the name Tim Burton all but guaranteed a film with an element of fantasy. It seems he wants a break. Though the director has several potential films on his plate, his next is likely to be a small, true story.
Once a producer on the film, Burton is now set to direct Big Eyes, the true story of legendary painter Margaret Keane and her husband Walter. Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz are attached to play the Keanes from a script by Ed Wood writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. The Weinstein Company is likely to produce and distribute.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We knew that the guiding principle behind Zack Snyder‘s new Superman revival Man of Steel was to make the alien superhero make sense in a modern era. And while we don’t know precisely how he and his actors and crew have accomplished this, but the first footage from the film does gieve some indication. We see Clark Kent and his alter-ego Superman (Henry Cavill) having what appears to be a crisis of conscience or morality, and doing some serious soul-searching.
New images from the film have hit the web, and while they don’t exactly pinpoint more details of Snyder’s approach, a couple of his accompanying comments are useful. Read More »
