    Default Batman v Superman

    So... who is excited for this?

    We're not far from the cinematic release. Are you mega-excited, cautiously hopeful or completely uninterested?

    Cautiously hopeful. I like Man of Steel, but I've been a little concerned from the start about the sheer number of characters set to pop up. We'll see.

    I think its maybe taking the franchise too far. I think one film isn't big enough for the both of them.

    My expectations are in line. That first trailer was good, the second bad, and the third one okay. I also still don't like the choice of Eiseb=nberg as Lex. That's the most WTF choice to me and none of those trailers have changed my mind on it.

    It's directed by Zack Snyder, so it'll be an incomprehensible mess. And Amy Adams will be wasted like she was in Man of Steel.

    Man of Steel was far from an incomprehensible mess (same with 300 actually). And Amy Adams is generally awful but Man of Steel managed to make me tolerate her so I'd say job well done there.

    I'm excited, but I have to wait until my day off to see it, as I couldn't schedule any time off (thanks Easter).

    I did get opening day off for Civil War, which I'm waaay more excited about.

    I'd like to know who you do consider a good actress if you think one of the best actresses in Hollywood is generally awful.

    And Man of Steel was an object lesson in how not to direct action sequences.

    I thought Man of Steel was the worst Superman film since Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. I couldn't stand Henry Cavill and the level of collateral damage in the action sequences was ridiculous.

    I have less of a problem with Ben Affleck as Batman than I do with Henry Cavill as Superman. I'll wait until this film comes on Sky before watching it.

    Also, I agree that Amy Adams is very talented and versatile actress. She was great in The Fighter.

    She was good in the Fighter, I'll grant her that. It's also the only performance I've seen her in i could stand. One performance does not a great actor make.

    I guess this will be a nice warm-up act for Civil War.

    Her performances in Enchanted and The Muppets were (while certainly saccharine) very good and certainly showcase her versatility. I agree that she in no way should be classed yet as a great actress. She is definitely one of the more talented ones working in movies today.

    ive already seen the movie.. just by watching the trailer :l
    it is seriously disapointing how much they spoiled just in 1 trailer.

    but im half hyped about it.
    I have never liked Batman or Superman. Christian Bale got me interested (not hyped) about Batman and im really disapointed that he isnt Batman now

    perhaps very unpopulair but i just loved Man of Steel. Henry Cavill is hot-t-t-t :3 got a bit of a crush on him since The Tudors so i loved it when he got cast as Superman.
    tho i agree with Bubba, the level of collateral damage was rediculous and perhaps alot more. but ive never liked the comic'ish superman movies (same goes for Batman)


    .. so 'realism' got me interested in Batman and Superman :3
