Not a battle of who is physically superior, but a fashion war!!! This topic is for me to blow off some steam about the crap stories and design being used for the new superman
I got into the stupidest debate today with some friends who clearly never read a single superman comic or saw the donner movies. A lot of people were cool with Singers odd choice of suit design, the color scheme was dull looking and the little s invoked a sense of being not superman at all, even though the original superman designs had it, it was 70 years ago and does not fit with the current mentality of what SUPERMAN is. I really hated Singers movie, it was an abomination and defamation of the character i love most. This movie was one of the biggest failures of all time, 200mill to make and it made almost nothing in return, the movie only banked on the advertising which was the entire basis for singer doing things the way he did, do things so badly that people have no choice but to go see it opening day and to buy all the merchandising.
Seems Synder is doing the same thing, ruining the character, warping and changing superman yet again, no other comic character has been altered and reformed to fit modern times as many times as superman has been, i wish they would stop raping superman already and leave him alone. If you have seen the trailers he leaves large jet streams in his wake in the sky when he flys, i dont claim to be a true expert but ive read a few hundred superman comics in my time and i dont recall him venting exhaust or vapor trails from his feet, nor do i think the kryptonian race was a warring society, i though they were peaceful nd that supermans suit was made from the materials his dad put into his pod that lined the place kal el was sitting in, like a crib liner. In the new movie man of steel, superman wears scaled armor Is that not anti superman in every respect? Am i the only comic fan upset over this? THe S design is just awful and is right out of lord of the rings, its like something an elf would wear and its funny because the trailer used lord of the rings music in it, perfect fit if you ask me. It is also FAT in the center area, supermans s should never invoke fattness in anyway and it looks buldged, bloated and strange in a negative way.
seriously, i had a debate with some friends over the new trailer and i am absolutely alone in saying it looks like they could care less about the character at all and want to humanize him even more than singer did, people dont realize superman is not human and should not be made into a dark, gritty, realistic fashion. I go to the movies to escape reality, now they take some of my favorite fantasy characters and made them as if they were real...rip james bond and superman. Oh and also, you wouldnt make a reboot of indiana jones without at least some of the john williams cues, you dont have to revamp the entire soundtrack and do it like singer did and just use quire boy music for it all and totally ruin the love theme for superman and lois, you wouldnt redo back to the future without some of the cues, you wouldnt redo the godfather without that main theme, just like you should not do superman without some of the original williams score. Some friends giving me a seriously hard time over this lol...all of them said superman returns was going to be amazing, i guess i am alone in my views?
true superman fans over here <--- anyone agree with me?
