Re-booting Superman is what almost destroyed the character? They should have continued the Donner movies instead…

There are reports going around that the reason Warner Bros. aren’t interested in doing another solo Superman movie is ’cause they think a standalone Superman movie wouldn’t be successful at this time. Another reason is that JJ Abrams and his film company, Bad Robot is making a deal with Warner Bros. so he can make DC superheroes with them. While JJ is a huge Superman fan himself, he’s not interested in making a Superman film and he’s probably more interested in making DC films of other superheroes in the DC world.

If J.J. were to get on board to direct a Superman film himself, it’ll be totally different and would have a totally different cast. They’d cast who they want.

As far as the thought of Henry Cavill solo Superman movie would not be successful as of this time, I wanna know what drugs WB’s using? Both “Man of Steel” and “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” were box office hits despite mixed reviews of both of those films. Maybe that is what WB’s is really trying to avoid… the next Superman solo movie getting mostly mixed reviews like usual.

In my opinion, though, I thought “Man of Steel” was an amazing film. I thought it was well done and I was impressed with “Dawn of Justice” as well. I loved both of them.

Anyhow, I always preferred the Donner/Christopher Reeve styled Superman movies more. When Christopher Nolan announced that he was planning a Superman movie, he said he didn’t want to direct it and Nolan and Warner Bros’s ended up getting Zack Snyder for the job. Zack didn’t want a Donner/Reeve styled Superman movie at all and wanted a complete reboot.

Will WB’s ever go back to the Donner/Reeve styled Superman ever at all? They did that with “Superman: Returns” directed by Bryan Singer which was great and a sequel to “Superman: Returns” was gonna happen but WB’s ended up rebooting Superman instead.

I think WB’s doing another Donner/Reeve styled Superman film could work and that’s what everybody wants to see more to be honest. People want the old suit back and they want to hear the John Williams theme again. I think they could pull it off if they give it a chance. Do another movie, make a continuation of the original Reeve Superman films, know what I mean?

I think it’s a mistake that WB’s and DC no longer interested in making Superman solo movies anymore ’cause Superman is king. They need to keep making Superman movies.

Yeah, I understand how WB’s being frustrated ’cause making a good Superman movie is tough… they can be hard stories to tell and tough to get right.

I think a prequel to Donner’s “Superman: The Movie” is a nice idea too, though. How about a whole movie taken place on Krypton and a movie about the life of Jor-el? I’d like that too.

Just don’t ignore Superman, it’s crazy.

Will Warner Bros. ever release the Zack Snyder version of “Justice League” (or better known as the “Snyder Cut”)??? I hope they do and they should!!!

So now that director Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck has officially joined the “Snyder Cut” movement, will Warner Bros. soon release the Snyder version of the latest “Justice League”???

I haven’t been following this story much so I thought I would finally look into it and post my thoughts. I believe what led to this movement is that Zack Snyder filmed a much longer version of the film “Justice League”… I’ve read that Snyder’s version was much more than 3 hrs. long. About three and a half hour long film, I think. It turned out that Warner Bros. hated the Snyder version so much that they didn’t want to release it at all. That’s how director Joss Whedon came in to take over for re-shoots and re-writes so therefor, the Joss Whedon version of “Justice League” brought the film down to a two hour film.

Once Joss Whedon’s version of “Justice League” came out in theaters, it received mostly negative criticism by fans. This sparked interest of DC/Warner fans that they think Warner Bros. should release the Snyder cut ’cause they might think the Snyder version would be a lot better. The “Snyder Cut” movement has been going on through social media for a long time now. Jason Momoa already expressed interest in the “Snyder Cut”. Now Zack Snyder himself and Ben Affleck joined the movement.

Even though Snyder directed the original version all by himself, it’s not all up to him to release it publicly since it’s Warner Bros.’s film so it’s their prerogative whether or not they want to release it. Even Kevin Smith wants the Snyder Cut released.

Even though I have no problem with Joss Whedon’s theatrical release of “Justice League” as I think it’s pretty good, I really hope Warner Bros. releases the Snyder version. I think we deserve to see Snyder’s take on the “Justice League” film like it was originally intended, ya know? Warner Bros. may hate the Snyder version but that doesn’t mean the rest of us will hate it. They should make a DVD/BluRay exclusive release of Snyder’s version, I don’t see why not?

I know Snyder’s: “Man of Steel” and “B vs. S: Dawn of Justice” got mixed reviews but I fuckin’ LOVED both of those films. I thought both were really good and still stand by it. I think the Snyder version of “Justice League” would be really good too. The reason I loved the Dawn of Justice film so much is that I thought they told the Death of Superman and Doomsday story so well which people don’t get. That story finally deserved to get told on the big screen and “Dawn of Justice” did just that. Plus “Dawn of Justice” was a badass action film too.

With that being said, I hope Warner Bros. does the smart thing and lets all see it ’cause we deserve to see it. We just gotta keep pressuring them.

Henry Cavill the man himself quick to shoot down quitting Superman rumors on his instagram… looks like he’s still ON as Superman! YES!!!

View this post on Instagram

Today was exciting #Superman

A post shared by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill) on

The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report the news that Henry Cavill was out as Superman and a huge debate sparked on the internet. Lots of rumors and speculation swirling that Henry quit the Superman role.

Well here he is quickly shooting down the rumors in this humorous video. Wearing a Krypton Lifting Team t-shirt and then he holds up a Superman action figure. Well, looks like he’s still on as Superman, y’all so you can all settle down now.

Truthfully, I don’t think Henry Cavill will quit the role ’cause you can tell that he loves playing the character too much. I think he’ll still play Superman for “Justice League 2” and “Man of Steel 2” (if it happens that is). Glad he’s still on myself.

Kev

Henry Cavill done playing Superman… did he just quit playing the role? Seems so…

Superman-Henry-Cavill.-Photo-Superman-Wiki-Fandom-e1536767614323.jpg

It looks  like Warner Bros/DC. films are parting ways with actor Henry Cavill who just played Superman for them for three films: “Man of Steel”, “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League”. The split appears to be amicable ’cause the WB’s spokesperson said they and Cavill still have a great relationship together and always will.

Why are they parting ways? Well, WB’s seems to be so heavily focused on other superhero projects by the time they finish with those films, Henry will be too old to be playing Superman. Henry is 35 right now so age is probably what to blame for on this.

Another reason could be that Henry is a pretty busy guy.  He has other film projects in the works so that means he might not have time to play Superman again. Henry’s next focus is the new TV show “The Witcher” which is based upon the video game, a Netflix TV series.

So Henry done playing the Superman role for good? It looks like it.

Henry Cavill’s Future as Superman in Doubt, Warner Bros. Focusing on Supergirl

This kind of sucks, ya know. I thought Henry made a great Superman,  I really did. It’s looking like Ben Affleck  is done playing Batman too. I really was hoping for a follow-up/sequel to “Man of Steel” but looks like it’s never happening now. Another “Justice League” film will probably happen but looks like Superman and Batman will have to be replaced.

I never thought WB’s and Henry would make this unprecedented move ’cause people were expecting them to give us a few more Superman movies w/ Henry playing the character. Well, that’s Hollywood, I guess. Things changes different directions all the time.

Henry really is a great actor, though. I’ve seen him in other movies besides Superman flicks. The Superman movies did give him a pretty big career boost and I think he will star in bigger movies in the future. Maybe Henry will play a different superhero somewhere down the road, I can see that happening.

It’s going to be interesting to see what Warner Bros. is planning to do with Superman now. They’ll probably reboot the series again and I’m hearing stuff about Michael B. Jordan being the possible replacement.

“Man of Steel”, “Batman vs. Superman: DOJ” and “Justice League” all got mixed reviews but I liked all three movies,  I really did. Henry probably feels that three Superman movies is enough for him. Maybe he just got overwhelmed and he wants to move on to other projects?

Henry hasn’t responded to this with a statement yet but I’m sure he will soon. I think he will speak out about it on his official instagram page so keep an eye on that…

“Justice League” trailer is finally here but where is Superman??? My guesses are here… ***Possible spoilers***

 

***Possible Spoilers below***

The reason WB hasn’t been advertising Superman in the new “Justice League” movie even though Henry Cavill is still casted as Superman in the film is ’cause Superman is dead. At least he’s faking it.

Remember in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”, Superman was killed by Doomsday at the end of it. At the end of the film, we see dirt rising off the casket giving us a hint that Superman is actually alive still.

At the end of “Dawn of Justice”, Bruce Wayne says to Wonder Woman, “We have to stand together”. Meaning they are about to form the new Justice League ’cause Bruce Wayne/Batman can’t save the world by himself without Superman, ya know? That’s why he’s forming Justice League.

My prediction in “Justice League” is that we won’t see Superman for most of the entire movie. We won’t see Superman ’til the very end of the film. When the Justice League group are in trouble toward the end of the film, that’s when Superman will finally appear and save the day.

With that being said, though, “Justice League” looks fuckin’ badass and I’m gonna go see it for sure. Can’t wait!

Why “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is a great film, it’s not bad like everyone is saying…

So I just re-watched “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” on BluRay last weekend and I still  see nothing wrong with the film. Yes, the film is still the most hated film in Hollywood right now. After I re-watched it, I can’t understand why. The film is not bad like everyone is saying. Actually, I think the film is pretty fucking great and I really mean that too.

Reasons the film is great for what it is ’cause it was pretty faithful to the comics for the most part. A lot of the movie was adapted from “The Death and Life of Superman”, ya know that famous story about Doomsday. They finally brought the “Death and Life of Superman” to the big screen. Also, “Batman v. Superman: DOJ” had many other comics adapted to that movie too like it had a lot of “Dark Knight: Returns” mixed in there as well ’cause the film was pretty much about an aging Batman. That’s where they got the idea of Batman and Superman not getting along too well at first ’cause they borrowed that idea from “The Dark Knight Returns” graphic novel/animated movie. So technically, the “Batman vs. Superman: DOJ” film is a mix of “Death and Life of Superman” and “The Dark Knight Returns”.

Plus, I think the visuals and the action scenes in “Batman v. Superman: DOJ” are out of this world. Sure all the action scenes don’t start ’til the second half of movie ’cause I’ll admit the movie started off kind of slow in the beginning but that’s good. It leaves room for more story. Everybody expected “Batman v. Superman: DOJ” to be this big action movie but when you actually see it, you’ll realize it’s something different.

I thought the Doomsday battle was incredible. That was probably the best part of the movie, in my opinion, that’s when Wonder Woman jumps in.

I think the only reason that the film got so much negative criticism is ’cause people don’t like Ben Affleck. Period. If they had a different actor to play Batman instead of Ben then maybe the film would have been received more positively. Isn’t that messed up? Anyway, I thought Ben made a great Batman. The way Ben’s mouth looked wearing the Batman suit, Wow. I thought Ben looked badass in the Batman suit. Ben will never be a better Batman than Michael Keaton and Christian Bale but I thought Ben did a great job.

With all this being said, I can’t wait for “Justice League” movie. The “Justice League” film would be even better than “B vs. S: DOJ”. Seriously, you should give “B vs. S: DOJ” another chance. It’s not a horrible movie like most people are saying. While I do have a great deal of respect for Mel Gibson, I’ll have to disagree with him of calling it a “piece of shit” ’cause it’s not.

Oh man, the full “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailer is here! It looks amazing! WOW!!!!!!

When the first teaser of “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” came out, I was a little skeptical of it at first but now the second teaser is finally here, I’m pretty sold now! The film looks pretty badass. Look like you’re gonna see kryptonite in the movie ’cause you can see the new kryptonite in the trailer at 2:48.

I’m pretty impressed with the trailer and it gave me goosebumps. I’m definitely gonna see this one for sure!

Enjoy! \m/

“Batman vs. Superman” teaser thoughts…

Looks okay, I guess. Kind of skeptical of this film, honestly. I was honestly hoping for  a “Man of Steel” sequel instead. This is just a teaser, though so maybe the next trailer will be a lot better… who knows.

I’m not that crazy about the Ben Affleck, Batman to be honest with you. I’ll probably still see this film but thinking about waiting for DVD rental on it.

I’m not sold on “Batman vs. Superman” yet.

New photo of Superman released for “Superman vs. Batman: Dawn of Justice”…

Superman

GeorgeReeves

The first photo above is the new screen shot still from “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice” released by Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. As you can see there has been a slight change in Superman’s costume and look. Superman’s hair is different. As you can see they combed it back which is kind of like a homage to George Reeves, Superman. I see that Snyder is still avoiding the S curl in Superman’s hair which is good.

In Cavill’s new costume, the abs are slightly different and the cape looks kind of different too.

I’m liking it!

I’m sure we’ll see another pic of Ben as Batman soon and we’ll get to see what color the new suit is for Ben’s Batman. I’m sure they’ll give us a pic of the new Wonder Woman too. They’ll give us a pic of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor too.

Jason Momoa has been signed to play AquaMan but nobody has been casted for the Flash or the Green Lantern yet. It’ll be interesting on who they’ll cast for the Flash and the Green Lantern.

Snyder gives Clark Kent a new look? No glasses and fedora hat???

10306077_497573937052993_6792608689780985111_n

 

New set pictures leaked to the web of Zack Snyder’s “Batman vs. Superman:  Dawn of Justice” film. Here you see Henry Cavill on set which looks to be a large green screen room. So Snyder is ditching the usual Clark Kent image? As you can see, the new Clark is still wearing the suit and tie but no glasses and fedora hat.

From what I remember, the new Clark Kent was revealed at the very end of “Man of Steel” and the new Clark was indeed wearing glasses. If I remember correctly, the new Clark put on the glasses while going up in an elevator at the Daily Planet.

Maybe Clark still does wear glasses. Maybe Henry just doesn’t wear them on set while they’re not filming? Look like he’s just taking a little break or something.

All the ladies love this guy, though. The women thinks he’s good looking. Of course he have to be good looking or else Superman wouldn’t work.

Definitely looking forward to “Dawn of Justice”. I’m sure Snyder will give us another action packed ride!
