Two superhero movies come out this summer, one is being hyped in every way possible, the other is Man of Steel which we have hardly any news on. The Zack Snyder directed film flies into theaters this June, and the handful of people who have see it have given it good reviews. For a film that is going to determine the future of the DC Movie Universe, Man of Steel sure has a lot on its back. There were a few details and pictures released in the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly that give us a small insight into the film. One small spoiler is that there will not be Kryptonite in the film. Interesting! Read on Towelites!
Terrance Stamp portrayed the character as an icy warlord in Superman II, but Shannon sees him as more of a die-hard supremacist. “He actually has some affection for anybody who’s a Kryptonian, including Superman,” Shannon says. “He doesn’t really have any malignant feelings toward him; he just wants him to be patriotic.”
“All their armor goes on top of the suits,” Deborah Snyder explains. But because Superman’s a refugee, his iconic outfit in our world doesn’t have the snap-on battle gear, which would make him a defenseless man on his own Kryptonian turf.
Traue’s Faora isn’t choking Lois Lane (Amy Adams), but activating a device to help the mere mortal breathe aboard a Kryptonian spacecraft while General Zod negotiates with Superman. (Faora’s translucent helmet, meanwhile, helps protect her from sensory overload under our power-giving sun.) “I’m not threatening her, ” explains. “I’m a good girl in this shot.” Faora “is a psychopath,” says Traue. “She is an engineered being, and driven by the need and pleasure of killing.”
Lois Lane (Amy Adams) – chasing down reports of a wandering stranger who is capable of superhuman feats of strength. “She’s very transient. She’s ready to pick up and go at a moment’s notice,” Adams says, noting that the trait is shared by Lois and Clark. “That definitely could be part of what she sees in Superman-not really laying down roots, not developing trust.”
President Jeff Robinov: “It’s setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward. In that, Man of Steel is definitely a first step. What Zack and Chris have done with this film [Man of Steel] is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world.”
This new TV spot doesn’t give us anything new, but next week it is rumored that we will be seeing a new trailer with NEW FOOTAGE (imagine that) attached to Oblivion!
Stay tooned 😛
