I heard they teasing lexcorp.....like could they be any more cliche.
Friggin setup braniac or darkseid....
It's not superman vs. iron man/captain america/the hulk in the box office.....it's superman vs. the avengers movie.
The avengers teasing thanos is like caviar
Superman teasing lex luthor is like stale bread.
I really wish they could have teased someone else....even mogul or something crazy like superman prime....get some momentum going for this joint.
I know theres gonna be a part 2 but they better come hard....word in the streets is that this movie without the action was bunz.
Any superhero without action is going to be terrible.....that's what people go to see. Put out a superhero comic or movie without action and see how far it goes....
The Avengers Thanos tease and the MoS Lex Luthor tease isn't an apples-to-apples comparison. The Avengers tease is a direct set up to Thanos having a hand in the events of that movie and him being the main villain. The various teasers in MoS are more like easter eggs that let the viewers know that they're actually in the DC universe, not some Superman-only incarnation. There was a Wayne Enterprises satellite as well, but that doesn't mean Bruce Wayne will be appearing as a main character in the next movie, either. They're just setting up the world so that viewers can start to get an idea of what the REAL setting is (at this point, probably the same DC Universe that exists in the comics).
Honestly, I'd highly recommend seeing the movie. That being said, if you're someone who's in love with Christopher Reeve's portrayal and want a happy-go-lucky superman experience, I wouldn't recommend it. It's too honest for all of that.
Yea but action doesn't necessarily make it a good movie. It's gotta have a good story, good dialogue, good acting to benefit the action and vice versa.
I think you guys just don't understand. For DC to rival what marvel is making they needed to pick up the pace. People know the goddamn world already...how many superman movies do they need to set up the "world"? everybody and their mothers probably knows about Zod and the others.
TDK was able to capitalize on having a somewhat decent history of movies beforehand. Superman....def not. They don't need to reinvent the wheel, they need to give people more bang for their buck.
Even as semi mediocre Thor, Captain America, the Hulk series, and some Iron Man movies were....they built off of each other in what would culminate as the Avengers. DC failed with this one....they could have done some awesome things with this movie but they went too slow with it. I mean I didn't see the movie but I've been reading synopsis of it from multiple places and honestly they should have started the movie with him at the daily planet and had flashbacks of him growing up, facing some villains and have him fight the parasite and/or metallo and some other b-grade villains to setup darkseid or brainiac in the 2nd movie. This would have helped to solve the problem people say they had, of the movie jumping around too much, or the feeling like things were rushed.
People don't wanna see another superman origin movie they wanna see some good story, with some good action, with some good villians that they don't necessarily need to know who they are....if the villians are done right...people will leave the movie researching who they are.
Given that you say lexcorp is just an easter egg....it makes this movie that much more forgetable. Comic book movies NEED to have teasers for upcoming installments....it's just proper comic book etiquette.
