Sounds good

Sounds about right in terms of continuity.

@ObiWanShinobi It was just poor execution. A lot of ideas but no real growth beyond a conceptual phase. It had all the potential to be the best Spider-Man movie ever but fell way short of its ambition.

@undeadslayer4 The movies you mentioned didn't suffer from the same developmental hell that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 did. The characters, however criticized for whatever reasons by viewers, in Man of Steel were still fleshed out. It still had a rich and interactive world where nothing was just by happenstance. Everything had its purpose. It was a complete story whether it was well received by all or not. The reaction to TASM2 was quite unanimous with those who thoroughly enjoyed it being in the minority. The majority saw the same problems. Something like Man of Steel boiled down to a matter of taste really and how you view your Superman.
@undeadslayer4 The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had several problems with it. While as a viewer you're entitled to how you see a film's worth, there is no denying that there were a number of issues. It wasn't so much the villain overload as it was the lack of development. With Electro promised to be the more prominent of the villains there was little to no development into his character as a whole from his beginnings as Max to his evolution/transformation as Electro. Green Goblin felt like a forced character in his creation. Harry felt quite bland given that he had so little screen time and no validation as Peter's longtime and distant friend. And Rhino was relegated to a background character though it is promised we'll see more of him there was nothing to build interest in him enough to see him as little more than another street thug Spidey took down daily. The focus was too hinged on the love story of Gwen and Peter that didn't allow for a cohesive balance across the board. The only purpose of the villains in this movie was to create action scenarios for Spider-Man. They didn't do enough to make them interesting though no matter how "cool" they may have looked. Overall, the film was entertaining but very unbalanced. Sony has a lot to atone for moving forward and they know it, no matter what the box office numbers project.

@Johnny1312 There was no makeover. It was fan art taking the stills from the trailer and altering the faces to resemble the classic cartoon look. There never was any mention or attempt at changing the final look of the turtles.

@undeadslayer4 What I was saying was that the signature of Lex Luthor and Lex Corp. was all over Metropolis in the first movie which would make it a contradiction if they are calling this a start up company in the coming "Dawn of Justice" film. Unless this is a start up company that is geared toward the rebuilding of the city in the wake of all the destruction left behind the fight between Kal-El and Zod. It was an easter egg for eagle eyed watchers and at points quite obvious that they had every intention of bringing Lex on at some point in the franchise. My comment was that I don't see them backtracking to make Lex seem like he's just becoming some hotshot mogul when his fingerprints were all over Metropolis in Man of Steel. This so-called start up company has to be something industrial in nature as a branch to his already thriving empire. The point is, don't hone in on certain key words and hold to them as literal. It's almost never literal when it comes to bit information.
Sounds Awesome!

@Brizzy Somehow, even with the report of the Lex Corp. background, I don't see this being a contradiction to what we were shown in Man of Steel. It was too prevalent in that movie for Snyder or his writing team to go backwards. I think this is like @raoulduke33 said, it may be an expansion opportunity to buy the confidence of the citizens of Metropolis by investing in it's reconstruction. Either way, I don't worry about it too much.
@john-m That's a fair strategy.
@ObiWanShinobi A Flash/Green Lantern team up does seem a bit strange. I certainly wouldn't put the two together in a duo film. I'd expand on some of the smaller characters, i.e. Green Arrow and other non-powered characters. Green Arrow in a Batman film wouldn't be bad being of similar backgrounds. I just can't find any interest in Martian Man Hunter. But I definitely look forward to a Man of Steel sequel following the momentum of the Justice League.
