…and the reviews aren’t great. It’s at 30% on Rotten Tomatoes. Well, I’m a guy who grew up with George Reeves as Superman. In my universe he is at its center with Batman, Captain America, Green Lantern, etc. in orbit around him. The recent film, “Man of Steel” drew the ire of many fans, stating their dislike of the movie. Presently, I’m sure there will be even more complaints about “Superman v Batman”.
Having lived in a Superman movie desert most of my life, I’m pretty sure that I will enjoy the new movie regardless of any specific disappointments I might have. The reason? Superman III. Superman IV. When fans declare their dislike for the current movies, I ask, “Did you see those 2 older movies?”
I have waited years for anything Superman. When “Superman Returns” was released, I enjoyed the movie but Bryan Singer’s love of “Superman” (the first movie starring Christopher Reeves) was so strong, he basically remade it. And when it didn’t do great business, sequels were cancelled and no more movies for 7 years.
The one thing I”m sure about, is if this movie does poorly at the box office, it will not derail Warner Bros. future plans. The success of Marvel Studio has backed them into a corner.
…..3 days to go.
Recently updated my Superhero/Comic Book/New York Comic Con webpage.
Here’s my Comic Con Batman link – Rich Green Photography.
Folks dressed up as Batman, Superman and other superheroes.
At the 2014 con, the original Batman suits worn in the movies were on
display for Batman’s 75 anniversary. He was born in 1939. Superman in 1938.
It’s always a lot of fun to go to the comic cons, but they are TOO crowded.
For the second year in a row, this year was Hurricane Sandy and last year was the “October Surprise” (bad snowstorm) , Halloween and all those “trick-or-treaters” were never able to go out and get all that candy. And now I have a ton of it sitting and waiting for someone to eat it.
