wow, ww fans complaining they want her story to be character driven? no wonder i can´t be bothered with this site any more. by the way the same people would be complaining if they made it action-driven.for my 3-pence the fact that it is clear these guys don´t get the character in the first place is why i don´t really take any of this seriously anyway. hopefully a good movie comes out of this cluster-fuck, but doubt it. the person who said batman begins was character driven - man of steel not I applaud you. coz we all know which was the more well-recieved movie.
Well Man of Steel fared considerably better than Batman Begins at the box office so there's that. Also Man of Steel was for the most part a character-driven film with lots of expensive CGI in it and the reason it didn't resonate with critics and die-hard comic book fans was because Snyder dropped the ball on the storytelling. The sumptuous visuals were the movie's saving grace actually.
Well I think that´s fairly easy to explain isn´t it. Batman´s Begins was the first movie that set this whole superhero movie boom in place. Obviously it wasn´t going to do as well as Man Of Steel. In fact Man Of Steel did that well simply because it was the same team behind the Batman movies. As for Man Of Steel being character-driven, the sad thing is I think you´re right. They were trying to make it character-driven, which just demonstates either how piss poor a director Snyder is, or more likely, how little he gets the Superman character. Just a bad bad bad movie.
The fact he has anything to do with WW who is a very difficult character an even more difficult character to get right than Superman, doesn´t fill me with hope. Honestly I know this is a horrible thing to say, I just hope Batman Vs Superman fails badly and he gets fired. I have no doubt in my mind from what I saw of that trailer that the film is very likely to suck. I just hope if it does people will see the problem isn´t the characters it´s Snyder.
Snyder is a visual genius whose best talent would lay in just straight up adapting classic graphic novels to screen, he should never ever be anything to do with developing a story. Quite frankly he sucks at it and has no idea. Howver if they just got him to straight up direct something like Red Son, or The Dark Knight Returns, I think he make a great movie. Just my opinion, just to show I´m not just hating on the guy.
