Kevin Smith talks MAN OF STEEL; Says WB Should Steal Marvel's Plans
Kevin Smith has some advice for DC Comics and Warner Bros when making DC related movies... Copy Marvel. Yup. And he hopes that starts with this week's Superman relaunch, Man of Steel. Hit the jump to find out what he says...
"I wish that DC would just flat out be like, 'We're just going to steal Marvel's plan since it seems to be working for them,' and then just do the same thing," the filmmaker and geek guru tells QMI Agency. "They've got characters and they can do a Justice League movie as well." From what he has seen, the Clerks filmmaker - who wrote Superman Lives back in the 1990s which never got made - thinks director Zack Snyder and star Henry Cavill are on the right track with Man of Steel. "I liked Bryan Singer's Superman Returns, I thought it honoured the Dick Donner versions, but what I've seen from Man of Steel has pulled me right in," says Smith. "There is one moment where Superman is speeding Lois Lane away from danger and we get a glimpse of her face and to me it looks like she's saying, 'If this dude slows down we are dead.' If you can show me something that beautiful that brings me as close to the comic book experience as humanly possible, you've got my money."
