The debate over Man of Steel‘s third act isn’t going to end anytime soon. It’s been a topic of conversation ever since the film was released, and with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice coming out in the next few months, expect even more discussions about it. The film will address the third-act destruction we saw in Man of Steel, and will question how much Supes is responsible for all those deaths. Now, comic book writer Mark Millar has weighed in on the level of violence we saw in the comic book origin story.
After the jump, Mark Millar discusses Man of Steel and comic book movies in general.

Everyone has been going crazy over Star Wars: The Force Awakens this week, which means some new photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice got a little overshadowed by all the buzz from a galaxy far, far away. The new images don’t reveal much from the forthcoming face-off between DC Comics’ most iconic superheroes, but new details about the prologue involving Bruce Wayne and the origin of his rage and distrust of Superman are worth pointing out. Check ’em out after the jump. Read More »
There have been a lot of rumors swirling about the future of the Man of Steel lately. The sequel to his 2013 revival from Zack Snyder has been rumored to be one of the projects that Mad Max: Fury Road helmer George Miller could direct, but the film has also been said to be on “permanent hold” until Warner Bros. Pictures really figures out what they want to do with the Big Blue Boy Scout.
In addition, there have been rumblings that Warner Bros. wants more Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and less of the Man of Steel (though Snyder may have had a reasonable explanation for that). Still things have been somewhat uncertain for the future of Superman in the DC Comics universe.
However, fans probably shouldn’t worry because Superman will always be an integral part of this comic book world, especially with Justice League on the way. And a new rumor actually debunks the “permanent hold” status of the sequel, revealing a potential Man of Steel 2 release date window as well as another potential DC Comics project for George Miller.

Before Ben Affleck was officially locked down to direct, co-write and star in his own solo Batman movie at Warner Bros., the story started as a rumor following a test screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice attended by the film’s crew and studio executives.
While the reaction to the screening was reportedly overwhelmingly positive, a new rumor says Warner Bros. now wants to make some changes. Supposedly the studio thinks that Batman v Superman needs more of Ben Affleck as Batman in the movie and less of Henry Cavill as Superman. Why? Well, the reasoning is that Affleck is blowing Cavill off the screen, so they think more of The Dark Knight will only help the movie. Details on Batman v Superman adding more Batman to the flick below! Read More »
Even before the Comic-Con trailer for Suicide Squad officially made it online, spy photos from the Warner Bros. set had confirmed that Ben Affleck will appear in the DC Comics cinematic universe film as Batman. It only makes sense, as his arch nemesis, The Joker (Jared Leto) is a primary character in the movie.
However, what about his future opponent, The Man of Steel? Since Superman and Batman will soon come to blows in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, it stands to reason that Superman could get involved with what happens in Suicide Squad. Well, someone finally asked Henry Cavill about whether or not we’ll see Superman in Suicide Squad. So what did he say? Read More »

By now you’ve probably seen the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer that premiered at Comic-Con and went online shortly thereafter. Or maybe you’ve seen the slightly shorter theatrical edit of the trailer that was released last week. Either way, you’ve seen some of the destruction of Metropolis repeated as we now see part of the final battle from Man of Steel from the perspective of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, watching as one of his buildings is destroyed.
Now a fan has edited together parts of the scene from Man of Steel with footage from the Batman v. Superman trailer to help paint a slightly more complete image of what we’ll see unfold on the screen next spring. You might have seen a GIF floating around with a side-by-side comparison of the laser vision tearing apart the building, but this is a little different.
