Not going to really get into the movie, but at the end of it when everything is resolved and Clark Kent lands his job at the Daily Planet he's rocking the typical Clark Kent glasses and I swear it the spitting image of Keuchly in his glasses.  I know we've all made comments on how he looks like Clark Kent with his glasses, but the imagery in this legitimately looks like they were inspired by Keuchly's manliness.

 

PS:  That Zod guy who runs this place is a crazy douche bag.

Lol, nice Zod jab.

As for the film, Snyder basically made Whedon's Avengers appear like child's play.

I saw it as well right after This Is The End.

My only question is why does every movie these days seem to involve the destruction of Earth? I'm about ready for a decent film that didn't involve annihilating the planet; at some point you wish they'd just do it already.

I'd take the Avengers over this.  The noise and visual effects were just too much for too long, it completely exhausted me.  Wish it was a little more light-hearted too, it seemed to take itself a bit too seriously and was nowhere on the same page as the Batman movies in terms of plot and thematic elements.  It felt like a transformers movie with a very serious tone.

Yeah, it's getting a little repetitive. I think the sequel should go smaller, but man... the action and scale for this film was insane. Dragonball Z level of crazy.

I feel that way about the white house.  Ever since Obama has been president it seems like every third action movie blows up the white house, or terrorist attack the white house.  Oh and don't even mention the poor Washington Monument. ......

Meh, I'm happy that MOS didn't follow Marvel Studios' cookie-cutter formula. Some comic fans might precieve an adaptation with gravitas as pompous but I don't. Kal-El was more relatable this way than some perfect dork.

The action sequences puts The Avengers to shame in my opinion, especially since Whedon can't seem to escape his TV formatting.

Oh no I find most of the Marvel movies pretty... well yeah cookie cutter.  I really liked the Avengers though.  Just felt they handled the juggling of all those characters perfectly and it was a really fun movie that wasn't delusional about what it was.  I did like the way Clark/Superman was portrayed - he was very relatable.  The action was incredible, it was just absolute sensual overload.  The final fight sequences I swear lasted for 40 minutes though and like Revenge of the Sith, after the initial emotion of the fight wears off it just seemed to drag onnnnn and onnnn through the explosions and flying.  IDK its obviously a personal difference in taste.

Fair enough. Whedon's strength resides in handling numerous characters and witty humor. So I too found The Avengers to be what X-Men should have been. To me, the final 40 minutes just flew by (the action had me that captivated) but I could see how the length of the battle might have hindered it. For instance, I felt that The Avengers finale was too long. It took me out of it 25 minutes into the battle.

Just saw the Man of Steel, huh? What was Smitty doing earlier tonight?

 

Sure is nice to have a third name for Supes. Now Cam can be Superman, Luke can be Clark Kent, and Smitty can be the Man of Steel.

 

Memo to the rest of the Panthers: don't get a visible Superman tattoo and fug this up, unless you WANT to have the nickname of Kal-El.

 

Or Superboy.

 

Or Supergirl.

Can't believe an adult actually used Dragonball Z to describe something.  My kids stopped watching that poo when they were like 10 years old.
