This looks terrible, absolutely terrible. Way too dark and gritty, Superman isn't a dark and gritty character. Yes Batman made alot of money and now they think people want films like that but it worked for Batman because its fucking Batman

Superman is way more lighthearted and i read an analysis of this image online and it made me notice you cant tell if he has his red undies in this costume. really, no red undies? superman needs his undies

lets just all agree that without christopher reeve in this world nobody can play superman nobody!

I don't know why they didn't get Brandon Routh to do it again, he just has that superman look.

Probably because superman returns was ponderous and awful and they want to distance themselves from that, because studios enjoy not losing money.

What about dark knight rises, I haven't been following that, anything new on that front. I think I saw a picture of bane maybe

Yeah really, cause he wasn't playing it totally straight, he was playing it sort of accepting that this is a premise you kinda can't make completely serious. Gene Hackman as Luthor too.

I don't mean full on, adam west era batman (though I liked that too) but yeah you could tell everybody involved with that movie sort of embraced its sort of absurd that theres an invulnerable flying man fighting a billionaire...except maybe for marlon brando, except by that point he probably didn't even know where he was and was just plotting to buy his little island and get real fat.

superman returns didn't lose money, it just didn't make as much as warner wanted it to

and superman shouldn't be taken as seriousky as batman.. a big part of the fun of superman is the absurdity of the character where you can just pretty much do any stupid thing you want to him because he's pretty much invincible.

Exactly.

Batman is supposed to be about a guy so psychologically damaged by tragedy and surrounded by monsters and corruption that he's forced to put on a cape as some kinda like coping mechanism

Superman is space-moses embodying truth justice and the american way and flying around

And I guess it didn't totally flop..it was terrible though, lifeless, dull, no humor or spark to it. I remember reading a review that called it "Bryan Singer directing a mass about superman" and yeah that was basically it. Way too self-serious.

(Full disclosure, I never was or ever will be that big a superman fan. But I get the points being raised here)

Yeah the reason venom was emo and dancing is because sam raimi was basically just trolling the studio since he was locked in contractually or they drove a dump-truck of cash up to his door or whatever

I think the brains thing only really came up in that spinoff comic

And I really only remember that happening one time, and even then it seemed like he was kinda just screwing with these two street punks prior to killing them

See I stopped reading them halfway into the "lethal protector" spinoff. Which I thought was okay..I used to have one of those compillations of his origin issue up through when spider-man tricks the symbiote into abandoning eddie and uses that to beat him.

The execution probably did suck, I looked it up on wikipedia and yeah it apparently just got pretty convoluted and now theres an anti-venom where..it's all white and eddie brock has magic cancer powers or I don't even know. And now the symbiote is on that scorpion guy.

Carnage, now there was an idea that was just bad from start to finish. If you look up the phrase "grimdark" it should just be a picture of carnage...that one comic where he was talking to the shrink was fucking Durrrr..., I remember I was a lot younger and still kinda went "...the fuck is this shit?"

Then that clone saga crap happened and I entirely gave up. Also what the hell was spiderman 2099 supposed to be exactly.

tl;dr: Screw it I still like venom.

Also I like how this is supposed to be grimdark, but theres still a red cape

Like "No see he's conflicted and isolated by his powers and his role in the world...but he totally still puts on a flowing red cape."

It's as if they realize this looks stupid and want to sort of half-way hitch onto the bandwagon of actual superman while also trying to rip-off christopher nolan. (Wait isn't Nolan like a producer on this..you'd think he'd go "this is dumb don't do this". Or maybe thats not how it works I dunno. I tried to get nine to explain it once but I dont think he did)
