One day, Darren Aronofsky will direct a superhero movie. After three close calls, it’s inevitable. Years ago the director was developing a film that eventually became Batman Begins. He was very close to making this summer’s The Wolverine and, it’s now been revealed, he was also a finalist to direct this week’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel.
Eventually Zack Snyder got the job, thanks to his previous relationship with Warner Bros. and the endorsement of producer Christopher Nolan, but Aronofsky was reportedly next in line. Read More »
Most of Mondo’s poster releases are designed as strict limited edition runs. Last year, however, the company did a print for The Dark Knight Rises which was slightly less limited. The poster was made available through a “timed release,” where enough prints will be made to cover orders that come in during a specific time frame.
Mondo’s second timed release is going to be a Man of Steel print by Martin Ansin, which will be available for 72 hours beginning this Thursday night at midnight. (IE, in the first minute of Friday morning, CST.) There will be more severely limited versions of the Ansin print, and also one by Ken Taylor, seen above. All details are below. Read More »

Man of Steel is simultaneously bigger and smaller than you are expecting. What’s bigger? The action. Super-sizing even The Avengers, Man of Steel has more action set pieces and devastating destruction than you’ve probably ever imagined. It’s jaw-dropping, heart-pumping stuff. What’s smaller? The story. Most of the film takes places in a very condensed, focused timeline, giving it an urgency and immediacy lacking in other superhero films. A smaller narrative raises the stakes as well as the emotional complexity.
Zack Snyder has made an epic and heartfelt adventure that successfully reboots the Superman character in a realistic, and humanistic way. Read More »
How high is Warner Bros. on Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, opening this Friday? The studio is now officially fast tracking the sequel, Man of Steel 2. And the plan is to bring the director back, as well as the screenwriter David Goyer. Christopher Nolan will also return as a producer, but in a smaller capacity than he served on the film that hits screens this week.
This likely assures a second Superman film will be out before Justice League, though that film is still in the cards, possibly with Goyer writing. Read More »
