    If it wasn't a skid mark most of the time, I don't think I'd mind it so much. lol
  2. I'll tell you right now - if Snyder hadn't been...

    I'll tell you right now - if Snyder hadn't been replaced by Whedon, I still would never have seen JL. But none of that really matters (I mean, it does, but not for this), because my point was about...
  3. It might have had less expense, but that wasn't...

    It might have had less expense, but that wasn't really my point; I don't think the audience was there either way - and in fact I think the talk of changes (and WW's movie) are what gave the film the...
  4. Sure - but WB have shown they have absolutely no...

    Sure - but WB have shown they have absolutely no vision. And in the absence of vision, having more time to iron things out is much better. One of the reasons, imo, that Superman '77 is so good is...
  5. Oh, I know that's not why people are asking for...

    Oh, I know that's not why people are asking for it (especially now) - I'm just saying that, after BvS, no version of JL would have done good box office numbers. It's a refute of the idea that...
  6. And if you look at JL, by comparison:...

    And if you look at JL, by comparison: https://www.the-numbers.com/movie/Justice-League-(2017)#tab=box-office - you can see that people didn't even bother showing up in the first place - the main-line...

    I think a lot of it has to do with nuance. If they screw something up on a TV show, they have 12-ish or more episodes to learn and do better. It has time (hopefully) to "find it's legs" and figure...

    That's cool - I appreciate the info, it's fun hearing about it. :)

    You've mentioned the Golden Age Superman often, and (a few small things aside) I really think that general aesthetic is the way...
  9. Oh, Superman Returns was when it hit me, too. ...

    Oh, Superman Returns was when it hit me, too. That's one thing that got me excited about MoS, WB talking about Superman being "relatable" and that this was a goal.. I thought "well, maybe this will...
  10. Those actually weren't counters to what I meant,...

    Those actually weren't counters to what I meant, you just said that it's not exactly what happened to Jesus to suggest it doesn't count. But the imagery absolutely does count, and the allegory is...

    Neat!! Thanks for sharing!

    And I know it's just the lighting, but Tyler reminds me a lot of Jose Delgado in this shot.
  12. That's exactly right. Just because every detail...

    That's exactly right. Just because every detail wasn't 1-for-1 with exactly Jesus doesn't mean it's subverting it. The imagery was there, and it was played into, not juxtaposed.
  13. It can be both because it's an allegory and not a...

    It can be both because it's an allegory and not a direct 1-for-1. But it doesn't work because it's too confused about what it wants to be. Much like Batman being a kind of "bad guy" in BvS while...
  14. I didn't think New Krypton was that bad - just...

    I didn't think New Krypton was that bad - just could have used more Superman focus... and one hell of a better ending. lol
  15. He wanted Superman to be both. That's how...

    He wanted Superman to be both. That's how confused his idea was, even though it's the kind of thing that a studio exec would think is "genius". But the whole distance thing with Superman in the...

    It's funny, when I read this, the first thing I thought of was:


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IUNc6yxp2g



    This is one part that I think does sell pretty well, but it has nothing to do...

    If I could make one point/observation: I don't think there's anything wrong with planning an arc of movies... BUT... the first one (especially, if not all of them) should feel like it's own contained...

    I'd love to see that - in fact, I wrote a basic outline years ago that starts there (think something akin to Byrne's "Generations" but much quicker)



    I think if it had enough "kinetic" energy...

    Ok, then - the topic just kept coming back to people dying, so it seemed like that was the idea. But I'm all for his morals being tested, as long as the strength of his convictions (and mental...

    Ok, so for narrative's sake, how often then? How often does All Might lose someone with enough regularity that you feel his moral character is tested sufficiently? Because this specific scenario is...

    What's ironic to me is that they both put him on a pedestal *and* semi-grounded him in the most disconnected ways possible, when WB had been barking on and on about how hard it was to make Superman...

    Yes, absolutely. Besides, how robbed of agency (realistic or not) would the character feel like to readers if he's losing people every other story? That's as bad, maybe worse, than Goyer's...

    Oh, ok. And are you sure about the trunks? I did freeze-frame on the "blur" scenes when he comes in, and I saw a red belt, but no trunks.

    I don't know - I have a whole type of people who shouldn't write Superman: WB executives. lol :p

    This.

    It's funny, I don't consider myself to really be against realism for the most part, but there's a point where trying to push realism beyond a certain point on Superman just strikes me more...
