Post on Tha Phoenix's Wall
There are no words to describe how excited I am for this.
The only surprise here is that they're still going ahead with this piece of sh*t after that travesty of a script leaked...

@ejk1 Thanks! LOL! Haven't commented in a while, though I still visit the site several times a day.

Not to worry. Rehab hasn't gotten a hold of me yet.

*raises Martini in your honour*
They should just pretend that either Han's death never happened (and ignore F&F: TD like we've all been doing for the last seven years), or that he faked his death to escape someone. Han was the best thing about the sh*tty third instalment (something they clearly realised as they've put him in movie after movie since), so I see no reason to kill him off now.
Looks great. Definitely on my must-see list.

*dances around, Martini in hand*
I really wanted Bird to return.

As many have said below, this looks like it could be the best IM yet and even better than the 'Avengers'. SO excited for this.

Great feel, cinematography and direction.

*toasts Mr Black*
I'm glad that it's sticking to comic book canon. Here's hoping that she's miles better than baby-teeth Kirsten Dunst.

*nods approvingly, Martini in hand*
What DC fails to realise is that Marvel made plans for 'Avengers' almost 10 years in advance and acted accordingly. They built a solid foundation for the franchise and deservedly cashed in.

Seeing this, DC has decided they too want a slice of that cake, but rather than taking their time to set things up properly, they're just going to release a JL movie with only one established hero (MOS' Superman). They're re-casting Batman (which makes sense) but not bothering to introduce him in a solo movie. Ignoring the potential for a WW solo movie - one of the core members. I'm assuming that they're going to use Ryan as Green Lantern, which makes logistical sense, but we're going to need a sequel to 2011's disaster - one that is considerably better than the first instalment.

I understand that they probably pleaded with Nolan to return for it in some capacity (and that he turned them down - done with comic book movies, for now), but I would have handed him a blank cheque and gotten down on both knees, if I were over at WB Studios. Nolan v Whedon would have been one HELL of a cage match.


I just...

I will go and watch it, but I'm prepared for 'Avengers 2' to blow that sh*t out of the water and halfway across the land.

*picks up Martini and exits stage-left*
@bawnian-dexeus Maybe not, but it seems that the general public relates more (nowadays) to heroes that are more flawed - more like 'them', in a sense.... :D

*toasts you and @mcleve02 *
It seems that they've addressed every point I brought up a couple of years back about 'Superman Returns' failing in part because the general public simply doesn't relate to a seemingly infallible hero anymore (and I know that he has Kryptonite and various other weaknesses, but when compared to other superheroes, he seems practically invulnerable - bulletproof, super strong, can fly etc).

By making his more 'human' struggles evident on screen, people will feel they can relate to him more (this has worked for Batman, as well as the gritty realism and naturalism). He'll still have all the powers and qualities we've always loved about him, but he'll probably also have his human side (that came with being brought up by the Kents) made more clear and more flawed.

I can see this movie being far more successful than SR, if only for those reasons.

But I could be wrong...

*nods firmly and takes a sip of Martini*
Despite what you guys have told me about the re-writes, I'm still so excited about this movie.

*pours a Martini and plops self on couch, waiting for everyone to get here*
*sits back with a Martini and waits for this to backfire*
@mcleve02 That and my heart literally sank. If Snyder f*cks this up for me... >.>
Wait, just read through the comments. Goyer left re-writes?

I'm so excited for this film, it isn't even funny. 2013 can't come soon enough.

Cavill seems really invested in the role and, while I'm hesitant about the 'change of direction' with the character of Lois, I'm sure Goyer (and Nolan) have done a fantastic job with the story and know what they're doing.

Just waiting on that full length trailer, which I predict will debut in front of 'Jack Reacher', 'Les Miserables' or maybe 'The Hobbit'.
