Henry Cavill has some big red boots to fill! Listen, I am by no means a big Superman fan. Superman is more of a concept to me than anything. His character bores me because he is TOO prefect. The original movies, starring Christopher Reeves, were OK and the attempt to relaunch the series with ‘Superman Returns’, or as I like to call it “The Donner tribute movie”, left me unimpressed. That’s what we waited 20 some years for? I love Bryan Singer and all, but thanks for nothing. The WB has now awarded our main man Zach Snyder (300, Watchmen) to put his mark on the franchise, and with his last outing, ‘Sucker Punch’, I’m actually getting kinda excited. Please just let Superman be a badass and punch things. Yes, I like the new visuals of him flying ,as it was a much-needed update, but lets keep the drama for your mama and see some full-fledged, true showings of strength! Here’s a few tidbits from Cavill’s interview with Cineplex Magazine:
“What I can say is that it’s a modernization of the character and a very realistic view of one, obviously, very fantastic individual. It’s an unreal situation, but it’s approached from a very practical viewpoint. We wanted to make the character easier to identify with. It’s important to do the role justice. There are a lot of people relying on me to do this well. I gladly accept that responsibility, and it’s a great one to have because it’s a wonderful opportunity. I don’t let the pressures get to me because that’s going to hinder my performance and, therefore, let people down. So I choose to ignore the pressure side of it and focus on doing justice to Superman.”
Superman smash! Um…right? Anywho, Man of Steel HOPEFULLY punches its way into theaters on June 14th, 2013!!
Thanks to Latino Review for the heads up!
