They should add a special finishing move where Superman snaps Zod's neck.

You couldn't really call him Brainiac, right? You couldn't have an actor say that name in serious dialog. I adore the character from Superman the Animated Series, but that name... They could use the concept of a Kryptonian artificial intelligence and give it some Kryptonian name that wouldn't sound so ridiculous, and then MAYBE somebody on earth calling it "brainiac" like once as an insult.
To be honest, it'll be hard to introduce true aliens into this movie's universe, especially if we're talking about the "guy with mask/makeup" alien so common in comic books (Darkseid, Mongul). Actually, isn't it embarrassing how many aliens in comic books are so unimaginative considering they DON'T have a speical effects budget to constrain their design, nor do they have to fit actors into costumes?
So the New 52 lets you clear your universe of legacy characters that came out of cheap, pointless marketing initiatives. And now you bring them back. Oh boy.
Couldn't possibly come up with a strong new villain into Superman's anemic rogue's gallery, no. Let's just bring back the half-robot version of him. Wow.
This is pretty much how I felt when they announced Joss Whedon would direct The Avengers. It's one of those all-too-rare moments in filmaking when you just sit back, smile and wonder why these kinds of "well, DUH!" decisions aren't made all the time. Seriously, who else would be a better, more practical fit?
Fan of the franchise? Check.
Proven action director? Check.
Financially successful director? Check.
Good grasp of effects integration? Check.
Able to get natural, likeable performances? Check.
Isn't George Lucas? CHECK. CHECK. CHECK!!!
The studio wins, the franchise wins and the fans will most likely win. Disney is off to a great, great start. After the prequel disasters, I really thought that was it; Star Wars was great once, but then became an embarassment not only to scifi/fantasy, but to moviemaking in general. The Clone Wars series managed to redeem the franchise to a survivable level, which is a minor miracle in itself. But now, what with Kasdan, Arndt and now JJ Abrams' involvement? Perhaps a dark middle chapter in Star Wars history is about to give way to a bright and shining future of exciting space opera adventure!
Nope. Owlman could've saved himself but chose not to. That's not on Bruce.
It was a great movie and final fight by the way.
Yes indeed. I still think it's the best Direct-to-DVD effort from DC. Great pacing and some real meat to the story.
