Comic-Con 2013 Photos (And Video) – Zack Snyder Presents SuperBat?

Okay, no, it’s not SuperBat.  And if you don’t know what has been buzzing around Hollywood after/during Comic-Con, then obviously, you really don’t care, you have been living under a rock, or you even know what site you’re on.

Anyway, I am glad to say that I was present not only at Comic-Con, but in Hall H on the Saturday of Comic-Con weekend as Man of Steel director Zack Snyder presented a surprise to everyone there. The surprise was so big that my DC-fan friend was sobbing with tears of joy and overwhelming excitement for 5 minutes, I kid you not.


Thanks to, here’s the video of that presentation, which involved Zack, moderator Chris Hardwick, and actor Harry Lennix.


Listen to Soundtrack of MAN OF STEEL

This is cool!  You can listen to the complete soundtrack of Man of Steel online!  Sometimes even the score of a music can affect how well people respond to the movie, but from I hear so far, it sounds pretty effective.

If you’re having any problems with the video above, just go here to listen.

MAN OF STEEL Likes Hardee’s Food and Gillette Razors

Given how non-comedic Man of Steel‘s trailers and TV spots have been, this is quite an interesting promo for it, nonetheless, Clark Kent has to eat, right?  And Hardee’s does sound appetizing.  So, no, I do not find it offensive and… well, it’s Henry Cavill as Superman!

Oh, and let’s not forget that Clark Kent also needs to keep that nice clean shaven look when he’s saving the world from catastrophe, so Gillette comes to the rescue for him.

Create Your Own Kryptonian Glyph from MAN OF STEEL


As part of its marketing campaign, the WB/DC team have created a glyph creator for you to create your own logo, complete with what house you belong to.  For instance, the logo above identifies me into the House of Dar.

If you download the asset kit, you can be a little more creative with your logo as many have done on, via the gallery.


MAN OF STEEL Latest Trailer Gives Us Threat Message From Zod


I can’t imagine this movie not being full of awesomeness.  I mean, c’mon, you have Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) looking all rough and strong-jawed and muscularly, you have General Zod (Michael Shannon) full of scary rage, along with fierce Faora (Antje Traue), and all normal human beings looking kinda lost, maybe except for Lois Lane (Amy Adams).  Man of Steel looks to be set to be the next Christopher Nolan-related success, as it should be, or even more so than his own last movie.  (Not that I didn’t like TDKR, but Superman is killing it!)


MAN OF STEEL Trailer #3 Offers Hope

mos-trailer-3-01I have been contemplating on how much superhero news I can possibly do, and thus has been my lack of posting such these past couple of weeks.  However, I would be remiss if I missed out on posting about this lovely trailer that somehow breathed new excitement into me about Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.  I figure that’s the least I can do.  And all I can say right now is, “Enjoy!”

David Goyer on Secrecy

“It’s something Chris [Nolan] tried hard to do with the Batman films,” Goyer said. “I’m genuinely pleased with how much secrecy we’ve been able to maintain. There’s so much of the movie that people don’t know, that hasn’t been touched upon. The trailer’s just the tiniest, tiniest tip of the iceberg.”

Goyer also talked about whether or not this Superman movie will be darker.“Relatable and realistic doesn’t necessarily mean dark. I think it would be inappropriate for us to approach a Superman film as if we were doing The Dark Knight. The Batman films are a lot more nihilistic; Superman has always been a story about hope.”

David Goyer on Being Involved With Man of Steel


“Chris (Nolan) and I were working on The Dark Knight Rises, working on the story; we were blocked. We agreed to part ways for a couple of weeks and just see if something had bubbled at the surface.  So I went back to my home office. I was wasting time and procrastinating and took out an archive edition of some of the original Superman comic books, Action comic books and started rereading them because I couldn’t figure out this plot point on Dark Knight Rises, I just randomly sat down one afternoon and wrote up some ideas for Superman

When I met with Chris Nolan again in another week or so he said, “Have you worked out the problem on the Dark Knight Rises?” I said, “No,” he said, “What have you been doing?” and I said, “Well, I had this idea for Superman,” and because Chris likes to procrastinate as well he said “let’s hear it,” so I told him. And he literally called Jeff Robinov, who’s the head of Warner Bros, while I was sitting there and said, “Jeff, Dave just told me this take on Superman and you need to hear it, I’d like to produce it. Can we come in?” And we went in the next day. That’s how it happened. No, we weren’t trying to do it, it just happened.”

David Goyer on female Olson and black White

Regarding the question of having a female Jimmy Olsen, Goyer was less forthcoming, stating “I can’t comment on that.” Not that we need him to, per se: The initial rumors pointed to actress Rebecca Buller playing “Jenny Olsen,” and the following screen shot from the Man of Steel trailer practically confirms as much (I mean, who else would Perry White be dragging away from a collapsing Daily Planet?):


Goyer wasn’t afraid to address the so-called “controversy” over the race-switching of the Perry White character, stating, “I Thought it was an awesome choice. I think that it is silly that people are like, ‘You Can’t have a black guy named White.’ But I’m like, well what about Barry White? I thought that was stupid. You just want to get the best actor.” Amen to that.

Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill on Superman

What Snyder said:

“We’ve tried to make a Superman movie where he does stuff and you go, ‘Yeah, if I was Superman, that’s what I’d do,’” Snyder said. “Even though he’s an alien, he’s more relatable, more human.”

What Cavill said:

“This is a Superman for a modern age. It’s not betraying anything that Superman is, but it is grounding everything in reality. It’s the story of this incredible being who can do incredible things, but whom we can associate with. Because he’s gone through troubling stuff and had to make tough choices…”

Michael Shannon On General Zod

General Zod (Michael Shannon)

General Zod (Michael Shannon)

“He’s not a villain any more than any other General fighting to protect his people. He doesn’t like to just hurt people and steal diamonds; he’s focused on being successful at his job. I think the way Terrence Stamp approached it – and this isn’t any kind if criticism of his performance – there was something kind of detached about it. Pure hatred, rage, whatever… I think this [characterisation] is more ambiguous.”

Superhero Saturday: DC – ‘JUSTICE LEAGUE’


This is according to what Latino Review‘s El Mayimbe says:

According to Latino-Review‘s latest Justice League report, that may be what they’re doing. Their report (see below for video) claims that in response to Disney’s acquisition of Star Wars and the massive success of The Avengers franchise to date, Warner Bros. is bringing Christian Bale back, for the simple reason that his films, based on a solo character and directed by Christopher Nolan, brought in over a billion dollars each on the last two installments, something Marvel was only able to achieve (so far) with a team-up.

Chris Nolan is producing (and provided the story for) Man of Steel so even though he’s always said he wants his Batman universe to live on its own and that it wouldn’t continue with him, he is involved in another DC property for the studio and was integral in bringing [director Zack] Snyder aboard. There’s no way their ideas end with one Superman movie.

Of course, neither Warner Bros. nor DC Entertainment have confirmed or made any official statement at this time. But with El Mayimbe’s rumor record, it’s highly possible this is truth. We shall see. It would be very cool to see Henry Cavill and Christian Bale and (hopefully) Ryan Reynolds grouping together to make an epic superhero movie, wouldn’t it?

Well, these are pictures, but they are tie-in images to the movie, so this gives you a better idea of what General Zod’s armor will probably look like.
