I hope you're right Theman, maybe if WB is lucky it'll even be as succesful, hell they'll take half as succesful.

DaForce sigh away, hopefully we'll get a full slate of slo/mo speed-up scenes that alone should make it more entertaining than TDK. Sucker Punch was excellent, better than Inception.

I wouldn't wipe my ass with inception that was a freakin waste of time watching that pile of crap.

The risk of Snyder directing is largely visual.  If the lighting and cinematography follow the Snyder formula (which I am genreally cool with) then the look of the film will be even darker and colder than Returns which just doesn't feel right for Supes.  Oh, and Violator, I got Sucker Punch just fine but it still sucked.  They should have gone with their original title: The Pussycat Dolls present The Matrix.

 Huh, Supes has a rubber suit and a 1950's hairdo.  Interesting.

 Actually, Wiseguy, there was a whole TV series about Supes origin called Smallville.  And, they revisited the origin in the last Superman movie.  ZZZZZZZZ.......

WG.  I didn't say succesful, I said horrible, lol.  You can switch adectives though, if you need it to feel better about something.

And there's where I see a flaw in your thinking, Big D.

Nolan's expertise in plotting out a movie so it doesn't look like it was made by a child with ADHD on an extreme sugar high

I'm sure you remember the trailers for the first Transformers movie...when they came out..."From executive producer Steven Spielberg...a Michael Bay film.." Perhaps it's a different set of men and a different set of circumstances but as we didn't see Spielberg's influence in Bay's direction of Transformers nor its two sequels, I don't really see Nolan exerting that much influence into Snyder's direction. Perhaps, I'll be proved wrong here and you right.

But I don't believe it. I bet this Man of Steel will be another origin tale (despite reports where Snyder said it wouldn't be) and it will be visually stunning, even if it's lacking in all the other story departments. I just can't see Nolan doing much from his end unless he has some "final edit" deal within Warner Bros. Pictures. And I think we all know a director like Snyder would never approve to the job in the first place if he had  to hand the editing duties over to another director...

Are you sure those pics weren't taken in London?

 Violator:  I've got Sucker Punch on Netflix, so I'll reserve my opinion until I actually watch the film.  However, if you are going with the "you guys just don't get it" defense...I think that is a bit unfair.  Because, based on both critics and the average viewer on Rotten Tomatoes it failed miserably.  And, I'd venture to say that those same viewers are every bit as savy as you and I.  That said, I've enjoyed Snyder's work a great deal, so I'm going to give this one a chance (the same can't be said about his owl movie which holds zero interest for me.)

 We all do have different opinions, but I think Inception was one of the best films of last year.  And, Nolan, by far is one of our best directors.  He MADE Batman for me.  Until he took over the reigns, I hated, or tolerated (at most) all the previous outings.  I enjoy Snyder's work, but he is no Nolan.  He is all about the visuals and not about the substance of a story.  The fact that the Watchmen was laid out for him is what made it work for me.  I even prefered his ending over the graphic novel.  It just made more sense.  Anyway, I like the idea of them collaborating and I hope beyond hope that this is an entertaining Superman movie.  Because, although I enjoyed the 70's Supes as a kid, I still feel the character has not been given true justice on the big screen.  

Snyder can go easy on the slowmo in this one...at least for me.
