Everyone seems to be going gaga over this Man of Steel teaser poster from San Diego Comic-Con 2012, and the film’s teaser trailers which debuted before The Dark Knight Rises. But honestly, neither really blow me away. The Blot likes that they tried to do something different with the teaser trailer and the poster does a good job showcasing Superman’s new suit, but I’d still be willing to bed money this film stinks. Nothing Warner Bros or DC Comics has done has shown me they know how to produce a kick ass super hero film not directed by Christopher Nolan.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Zack Snyder and they did the smart thing by keeping Nolan involved. But it’s not like Snyder’s last two live action films, Watchmen and Sucker Punch, were critical or commercial successes. Maybe I’m just bitter at how horribly mistreated the Superman franchise has been for the past 20 years, but this film better be freaking amazing! And I better not hear one peep about a Justice League movie if Man of Steel is not HUGE next summer.
Man of Steel swoops into theaters on June 14, 2013.
