Every time there’s a trailer for some new comic book movie I play out a scene from an outdated drug awareness ad. I’m not interested, I know it’s going to be terrible, but then somebody comes up to me and says hey, just one isn’t going to hurt you. And there it is- one hit and I’m running around like I’m on fire. So yeah, everything up until I saw the Man of Steel trailer looked terrible to me but god damn it that stupid trailer got me RIGHT HERE. I’m pointing at my heart, by the way.
I still have my reservations though. Every time DC takes away Supe’s trunks (which break up the colors in his uniform nicely) it spells out that they’re trying to make him more “real”, which means that they don’t believe in the character. On an related note- new 52 Superman doesn’t have trunks. Just saying.
