The Flickering Myth writing team sit down to talk about the fourth trailer for Man of Steel....
After releasing what felt like a million posters (albeit awesome ones), Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures gave us a fourth trailer for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel this week - this time featuring more of Michael Shannon's General Zod.
So, what did the Flickering Myth writing staff think?
Martin Deer: This trailer compliments the epic third one so well: we've had the hope that is Superman, now we have the very real threat that is Zod. The stage is perfectly set. You can really see the 'First Contact' scenario at play, with Zod's message - which is brilliant, that would be a terrifying moment in real life and I imagine the story will capture that.
To address complaints I've seen: Superman can be pissed off. In fact, it is »
There’s nothing more American than the comic book. Over the last few decades, comic books have been made into films, video games, iPhone applications and more. There has even been digital comic books making their mark – such as Biowars, the free comic book online.
Although 2012 has had its share of record breaking blockbusters, 2013 is projected to top previous records which will no doubt make audiences come back to see their favorite comic book superheroes on the silver screen for a second or third time. Newsarama has compiled a list of one of the most highly-anticipated comic book-based films set to be released this year.
Superman hasn’t been a stranger to the big screen. Being a hit in the 80s thanks to great writing, award-winning production and amazing characterization from the late Christopher Reeves, the Superman franchise deemed newer audiences with a reboot in 2006 called Superman Returns, »

Who knew, when Brandon Routh took on the alien Kal-El in Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns," that fans would split so divisively? The 2006 movie, which paid homage to the Richard Donner "Superman" movies without completely updating the franchise the way Christopher Nolan did with "Batman Begins," grossed $391 million worldwide off strong reviews for a genre sequel. But it cost more than $232 million. Warners felt it could have performed better with more action and a powerful villain--and no Superman kid. So Singer was taken off the franchise. The debate continued to rage about what Warner Bros. should do with the DC Comics super-hero. Fans clamored all over the web for a complete reboot. Warner Bros. motion picture chief Jeff Robinov struggled with what to do. As the last movie didn't break the mold --Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor was very been there, done that--and wound up in some kind of middle limbo, »

Less camp than Terence Stamp but just as menacing, the new Kryptonian villain looks poised for a box-office bloodbath

The final trailer for forthcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel has debuted on the web, and this time it's all about Michael Shannon's General Zod. Essayed by Terence Stamp in Richard Donner's original 1978 Superman and its 1980 sequel, the Kryptonian supervillain's 21st-century incarnation is now a little less camp but just as ruthless and megalomaniacal. He turns up on Earth to smack mankind with a startling double-whammy: firstly, aliens exist, and secondly, they're going to blow the planet to smithereens if Superman doesn't come quietly.
Stamp's henchmen Ursa and Non are nowhere to be seen, but German actor Antje Traue plays a sinister character named Faora who has also made the journey to Earth. Comic-book aficionados will be aware that the »

If you had asked me a few years ago if I wanted to see yet another Superman movie my answer would have firmly been no. Why? Because Superman Returns was a complete debacle that focused far to hard on trying to channel Christopher Reeve and not enough on being a great film of substance. When [...]

Iron Man 3 started the summer strong, and with it, 2013′s set of high profile superhero films. In just three weeks Marvel’s first post-Avengers film raked in a billion dollars at the box office and over the next two months, Warner Bros. and Twentieth Century Fox hope to achieve similar success in their key tentpoles.
Where James Mangold’s The Wolverine aims to deliver the definitive standalone Wolverine experience longtime readers have waited to see adapted into live-action, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel promises a fresh and more grounded take on the iconic Superman origin story.
Both films had their marketing campaigns held to the relative last minute and while both come from franchises with baggage (see: Superman Returns and X-Men Origins: Wolverine reviews), trailers and glimpses of footage for each have successfully piqued our interest and bolstered ...

Before the doors of the Irving Convention Center even opened on Saturday, it was very evident that Dallas Comic-Con is no longer just a local Texas event. Just by reading the convention's Facebook page, you could see people sharing their stories of how far they had traveled to meet their favorite celebrities. Many were from out of state or distant corners of the Lone Star State.
Let's just get the negative out of the way so we can get to the good points. Yes, there were a few cancellations. One was felt more than the others. The first day of the event, Nathan Fillion's representatives contacted Comic-Con management and told them the actor wouldn't be attending because of health reasons.
Since the Comic-Con personnel can't just say it out of tact and professional reason, let me do the talking for them. Anyone who drives or flies thousands of miles »

Following faster than a speeding bullet on today’s super new banners, we’ve another terrific look, this time in front of and behind the camera, of Warner Bros. re-imagining of the DC comic icon. Fan favourite superhero scribe David S. Goyer was the man tasked with giving Kal-El an all-new modern make-over following the commercial disappointment of Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns. From the look of things, Man Of Steel may well be the biggest film of the summer, while breathing new life into a character many fans believe hasn’t been done justice since 1980s Superman II
Check out the awesomeness!
Man Of Steel is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Michael Kelly, Harry Lennix, Richard Schiff and Russell Crowe. It swoops into cinemas from the 14th June.

We're now a month away from seeing "Man Of Steel" on screens, and there's still several ways it could go. We could be looking at a "Batman Begins," a film that revives the franchise and goes on to bigger things. We could be seeing a "Superman Returns," one that pretty much stalls the DC hero and leaves it needing another reboot. Or we could be looking at something huge, an "Avengers" style hit. The trailers have been strong, the buzz good and screenings should be underway in a few weeks. Until then, to tide us over, a new featurette on the film has arrived, courtesy of Walmart of all people (they're sponsoring a series of early screenings the day before the movie opens; you can find out more here). There's a fair bit of new footage, as well as slightly puff-piece-y input from Zack & Deborah Snyder, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, »

"Spock, I do not know too much about these little Tribbles yet, but there is one thing that I have discovered. I like them … better than I like you." –Dr. McCoy, "Star Trek" (1967)
Greetings from the apocalypse! The trouble with Tribbles is not how cute they are but how much they multiply, or in the case of "Star Trek Into Darkness," the silly plot point for which they cameo. That's the only thing I'll spoil from that movie (besides that it stinks), but luckily there's some sweet alternatives this week that boldly go where no J.J. Abrams movie has gone before … coherence.

Oh boy. "Star Trek Into Dumbness" finally fulfills J.J. Abrams' five-year mission to run this franchise through a Cuisinart of stupidity. I would need a spoiler avalanche to make a proper case for how this sequel squanders classic characters and scenarios from »

After the forgettable disappointment that was 2006′s Superman Returns, starring Brandon Routh as the titular hero, comic book enthusiasts around the world have been waiting in eager anticipation to finally get another Superman movie worthy of the name.
With that in mind, here’s hoping that this upcoming reboot can set the world »

Included in the videos are some amazing new footage from the film among them showing: Superman flying at speed across land (Africa?); an aerial fight scene with Superman punching Zod across the sky several times like a fighting game combo; the military firing upon Superman.
In between the new footage are talking heads interviews with Henry Cavill (Superman/Clark Kent), Russell Crowe (Jor-El), Kevin Costner (Jonathan Kent), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), director Zack Snyder, and producers Deborah Snyder and Charles Roven.
Diane Lane says something especially encouraging in her interview on “Strength”: “You’re (Superman) going to require as much strength morally when you have that much strength physically”. It’s reassuring to know the actors are aware of Superman’s strong morality being central to his character, »

After a new poster was released May 2, showing Superman flying high over the city of Metropolis, Warner Bros. has been quick to release two more for "Man of Steel," also featuring the hero soaring through the air. The difference with the new posters is they seem more associated with the imagery of Superman, rather than a picture of the hero himself. While the costume and colors make it easy to tell it's Superman, his face can't be seen in either new poster.
"Man of Steel" reboots the franchise after "Superman Returns" failed to reignite it. The movie stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, with Michael Shannon playing the role of his nemesis, General Zod. "Man of Steel" is directed by Zack Snyder, who was also responsible for "The Watchmen" and "300."

As I’ve stated in previous Fund This Film posts, one of the main benefits of crowdfunding is that it offers opportunity for projects that Hollywood literally rejects. Filmmakers like Alex Cox, Ralph Bakshi and even Zach Braff have hit Kickstarter because their visions and methods don’t fit the industry standards and preferences these days and no mainstream production and financial outlets are interested in their works as they’re intended. Similarly, with computer effects being the go-to norm in moviemaking now, people wishing to work with practical effects need to go to fans of such tactile techniques in order to pay for it. We’ve already seen a few campaigns highlighting old school movie magic, including Cox’s effort, and now there’s one from animatronic and makeup wizards Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. If you’re not familiar with those guys by name, you know the creatures and other stuff they’ve done »

The specter of the Man of Steel has loomed on the horizon ever since the first trailer was revealed last summer, attached to the theatrical release of The Dark Knight Rises. Superman fans have been intrigued yet skeptical. For enthusiasts, Superman is the greatest comic book character of all time, and they can’t wait to see him on the big screen again amidst the legion of newly-popularized super hero movies. But for naysayes, haunting memories of Superman’s most recent foray onto the silver screen – 2006’s self-important and visionless Superman Returns – have caused apprehension about a return of the character.
Adding to the conflict is the popular opinion that Batman, once Superman’s second in the pantheon of greatest heroes, has now superseded his rival. He has proven himself critically and financially thanks to Christopher Nolan, who raised the Batman films from the ashes of Batman and Robin and »

With just over a month to go until Superman returns, for what I’d expect is a triumphant return, the Kryptonite hype machine is starting to seriously spin. Much of Man Of Steel footage so far has been still shrouded in a veil of secrecy with Snyder and company saying the trailers are more or less only the tip of the iceberg. And while the latest TV spot, doesn’t give much away (as expected) it does feature a little bit more of Supes and Zod, but its all a case of blink and you’ll miss it. At this point, I feel there is not middle ground for Man Of Steel. It’s either an all out win or an epic fail. I’m hedging my money on an epic win. I wonder though with no major hook in any of the footage so far, will what we’ve »

If 2006's "Superman Returns" was all about emotion, then by comparison, this summer's "Man of Steel" looks to be all about action. And yes, there'll still be plenty of emotions in Zack Snyder's Superman movie (remember Zod's scream?), but the newest UK TV spot shows off some of the most epic action scenes we've seen. There are some new shots in the film, including one presumably Kryptonian ship violently landing on Earth and fighter jets engaging enemy combatants over the Metropolis skyline. People are running! Jumping! Fleeing! Fighting! Screaming! And flying!
Superman is definitely the most powerful superhero gracing the silver screen this summer, and it looks like he's going to have his hands full. Check out the TV spot below!
