@stormbox: not as much a rumor anymore is it tho....
inferiority complexes are really annoying on geek sites / the internet in general but yea i do know a lot about superman. whatever... there's only so many times you can watch him fight darkseid or some super powerful being. same for iron man...iron man 2 had basically the same villain (well, a bunch of robots as opposed to one mega robot). the third one they started needing to be creative. but say that is what they do. he fights zod in this one and say, for arguments sake, brainiac in the next one. what about the third? darkseid? if he can keep fighting these absolute earth destroying monsters off (because i doubt they'll be doing a death of superman movie), then what's the point of a justice league movie?
thank you for pointing that out. i never would have realised if you hadn't said it actually!
like, how can zod hurt him? i mean why would zod be able to even touch him if even on krypton he would have had superpowers? that means zod is just a regular dude on earth....unless he got superpowers and superman just had them anyways but wouldn't that just mean that superman's powers would be gone when he'd come to earth? if it works backwards anyways. maybe zod will turn out to be his dad. that would be a plot twist!
plus zod is not a weakness. he's a guy who can hurt him. he doesn't get weak just because zod is around. superman needs to have something that can hurt him or let him be hurt. hopefully it will be brought in in the second movie...
a lot of if not all faith in this movie / "universe" just dropped....
superman's now a mutant from krypton?
and they really couldn't find an intelligent way of fitting in all the work done on the batman movies without rebooting the series (guaranteed they WILL reboot the series)
they are so far behind marvel they will never make up for what they've lost so everything (guaranteed) will have a painfully rushed look about it (marvel can take their time, they're already 6 steps ahead of DC and soon to be 7 or from another angle, a whole 5 years ahead of them)
DC will crash and burn because of how bad they've handled everything over the years. Green Lantern was an insult to everybody who ever bought a comicbook. Come to think of it, i don't think anyone who even worked on that movie has even read a green lantern comic.
Honestly, and upsettingly, all of this news is bad in my opinion. i have been more excited for man of steel but after reading this article, pfft... useless... superman needs a weakness. everybody has a weakness. all we're ever going to see is lois in danger because that's the only other way to hurt superman.
maybe we pool our power, we can all just fly around the world fast enough to kickstart the justice league easter eggs in 2004's batman begins?
