Thoughts on Man of Steel trailer
I give my thoughts on the newly released trailer for, Man of Steel.
I won't lie, I was skeptical about Man of Steel because of the director and plus, I have always hated Superman (although, I did enjoy both the original film and Superman Returns). That being said, I really enjoyed the trailer and not only do I want to see it but also, I hope it starts a DC Cinematic Universe. Lets go over some of what I feel the highlights of the trailer were.
Not being as well educated in the Superman mythos as many of you are, I found this bit to be quite interesting. Clark: "What was I suppose to do? Let them die?" Pa: "Maybe." I think it was a really good piece of the trailer. It, for me, sets the tone for the rest of the trailer. It's probably my favorite part of the whole trailer.
Superman takes flight. This is where (in speculation of mine) he finds the suit and then takes off into space. He doesn't really fully know who he is and (like in the original and in the lore too if I am correct) goes to the fortress of solitude to find out who he is and where he comes from. Yes, I know I am captain obvious but still.
Zod's ship? Maybe? Could this lead to the possible demise of Jonathan Kent? Who knows. Either way, this was a really interesting bit of the trailer and I can't wait to see how that scene goes down.
I think that might be Faora beating on Supes. That's one thing I really like about this trailer. Despite the claim from many haters that Superman is invincible, including myself. This trailer shows that Superman can still lose without Kryptonite. I really like it.
Final thoughts: I really like the trailer and it has me pumped for, Man of Steel and I really hope it starts a cinematic universe (despite the fact, I don't like DC and prefer Marvel). 2013 is going to be another amazing year for comicbook films. Although, based on the two big trailers between Iron Man 3 and the newly released Man of Steel. I think I'm going to like Iron Man 3. This is also of personal preference and with no intentions of starting another flame war but, I don't see Man of Steel or any DC cinematic universe movies being better than Marvel's Cinematic Universe (There are two movies that no cbm's can top in my heart, Avengers and TASM). I am now officially planning on seeing this film on opening weeked and for the first time in my life, I can say that I am looking forward to Superman.
