“Man of Steel” Official Movie Trailer Released
So the first official movie trailer for the relaunch of the Superman franchise entitled, “Man of Steel” has been released today. After watching it, 2 things stood out to me…
1. “Hey Batman, mind if I borrow this?”
Listen to the soundtrack, look at the dark tones, those gritty realistic visuals in the trailer and then tell me this movie trailer couldn’t easily be a Dark Knight trailer!!?? Not saying this is a bad thing at all and considering Warner Bro. Studios is releasing this film, and you have Dark Night Trilogy Director Christopher Nolan producing it, it’s a safe bet to draw the comparisons. **Note: I love how The Dark Knight was presented and shot.**
2. When Superman just doesn’t look….Super.
I’m not familiar with the actor portraying Superman, and the critique I’m going to make is in no way a shot at his actual acting ability, but IMO he just doesn’t look “Super”. Physically, Superman is a big strong/muscular man with dark hair in the comic books. This guy has more of an athletic build than a SUPERman build. I mean, even Christopher Reeves (RIP) in his day playing Superman, had the right physique to make us believe he was really Superman! Is this a deal breaker for me…not necessarily if the acting, storyline, and rest of the movie is done RIGHT!
