A look at Man of Steel as only Screen Junkies can give.
Fresh off his run in the theaters, and just in time for the DVD release of Man of Steel on Tuesday, November 12th, Screen Junkies brings us a great new animated Man of Steel…

He has also written successful novelizations and tie-ins for Star Trek, Countdown, Infinite Crisis and many more. Cox is a consulting editor for Tor Books and was nominated in 2008 for the Best Speculative Adapted Scribe Award for 52: The Novel.
I had the opportunity to speak with Greg about writing novelizations, media tie-ins and who would win in a fight between Superman and Batman…
The folks at How It Should Have Ended tackle Man of Steel…
REVIEW SYNOPSIS: Overly long, sloppily scripted, needlessly violent, with changes that need not—and in some instances, should not—have been made, Zack Snyder’s telling of the classic superhero’s origins, despite some good touches, never coheres into a unified whole.
SYNOPSIS: Kryptonian scientist Jor-El sends his only son to Earth as his own world perishes. The boy grows to manhood and learns of his identity and extraordinary powers as a renegade general from his home planet demands his surrender.
PROS: Good cast, with strong performances by Russell Crowe and Amy Adams; incredible rendering of Krypton; small, standout scenes.
CONS: Muddy, redundant script; too much action; too little character development, with the main characters underfinished; a major change in the title character that goes against his primary image.
Here’s the latest trailer for Zack Snyder’s Siperman reboot, Man of Steel. As we know from the recent General Zod teaser, it looks like this reboot skips right to a General Zod story line. There also looks like some “boy coping with powers” thread that attempts to lend some weight to the character. Time will tell.
The awesome, wish-I-had-their-job folks at How It Should Have Ended have put together another episode in which the ever-egotistical Batman shares his thoughts with Superman on the Man of Steel trailer…
Warner Brothers has given us a proper trailer for next summer’s Man of Steel from director Zack Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan. Definitely looks to be a darker take on Superman than what we’ve seen in the past, but is it enough to wash the creepy/stalker Supes from Superman Returns from our memories?
Check it out after the jump.
Here’s a quick roundup of trailers that may interest genre fans…
Man of Steel
This is version 1 of the new Superman…err…I mean, Man of Steel trailer. Trailer 2 is the same, but features Russell Crowe’s voice-over instead of Kevin Costner’s. Either way…more teaser than trailer.
