Yeah, the red trunks have been the subject of jokes for years, but they break the blue up and make it easier to look at, without the red trunks it's a bit of a blue nightmare...

WHY !? oh WHY ?! do filmakers have to take advantage of the technilogical devices available to them to make awesome films??!!!!!

All movies should be made in the purest form, Black and White with no sound... Color and sound have just messed up movies so badly...


all of you who constantly hate on cgi, and talk about how it ruins movies are shortsighted. When CGI is used correctly it is remarkable and I'll bet half of you movie-philes can't tell 70% of the CGI you are watching. This call to go bck to prctical FX is stupid go look at old school FX, 70% of prctical FX from movie history is crap.

Can CGI be used poorly? YES, Will Snyder use it poorly? his track record says NO, and that he will use it in conjunction with plenty of practical "analog" which will accentuate it.

CGI was terrible when it hit the scene, but in our age it is awesome, and SHOULD be used (well) whenever possible.

A good actor plus Good effects plus good directing/producing equals AWESOMENESS

Who cares about the red undies. Superman is ripped beyond ripped, Zod will be CGI and I can already see a lot of huge action scenes. I'm going for the action and story, not to bode over his lack of underwear.

a CGI character?...why why why why for freak sakes WHY??????

I mean, here you have a good character and a good actor and BAM...CGI crap. If supermen is in real life, why not someone from his own planet can't be done the same way, in real life?

This smells bad already.

If you do a cape in CGI, sure...but an entirelly character in CGI?

DC...once again, you just can't learn.

Not to mention, take a look at Jim Lee's version of Zod. How can you not go CGI for that? Jim Lee created some of the greatest superhero/villain illustrations in history, so hopefully that is what Snyder is shooting for.  Kneel before Lee!

Gauleyboy, I think I agree with most of what you're saying.  I'm not against new FX technology if it really brings about improvement.  However, I still think that using as much practical FX as possible and then adding the CGI element is still the way to go.  I also think that the models and real explosion FX from sci-fi series from the 70's like Space 1999 and Battlestar Galactica is better then the majority of newer series.  I've seen so many CGI effects from both the movie and TV mediums that I can usually tell when they're being used.

Kadet, I hadn't even thought about the Jim Lee version of Zod. He is huge and armored so I bet Shannon is portraying this version.

But, I have a question: I haven't read comics regularly in years and am only superficially familiar with the Lee version of the character. A quick google search doesn't really give his origin. Why does he look different than the other versions? Why is he armored?

Thanks for the answers in advance!

Did you forget how to put your big boy pants on?  Is that why you reduced yourself to mere name calling?
