'Man Of Steel' Initial Picture Suggestions

Post  Apologist Puncher on Thu May 19, 2011 1:05 am

Just wondering what some of you are hoping it looks like?

Myself, I think it needs to be something different. No hands on hips. No shirt-rip. No "Superman poses".

Something like this:


Now ignore what he is wearing, and the background. Just a simple pose that tells you all you need to know.

It's Superman.

Yeah, that 1st shot of Brandon 'BJ' Routhman was extremely awful! I recall calling my wife into the room & asking her if that looked like Superman & she said 'NO'! Keep in mind that that pic debuted online over a year before Singerman was released! I didn't like the pic myself but because I wanted a SUPERMAN FILM so badly I tried to be optimistic. Man, was that a wrong move!

I don't know what Cavill is gonna look like but I trust Snyder far more than Singer so I trust Cavill will at least look 'decent' after 'Gym Jones' is through with him! I think 'TPTB' will hopefully have learned some lessons from the last time, i.e., they know a lot is riding on this & that 1st pic of Cavill is definitely gonna be scrutinized. Even more so!

You look back on Superman's history and some of the clearest, most consistent and most iconic iconography revolves around...













Is this necessarily the moneyshot you want for a poster? Done right, I can't say no. I'd be interested in something like this, whether or not it depicts a sequence from the movie or not.

The last pic was drawn by Gil Kane. Loved his work even 'back in the day'! In one of those big thick 'Marvel collections' in the vein of 'Origins of Marvel Comics', they reprinted some of his work on the HULK, back when he no longer had his own title but was appearing monthly in TALES TO ASTONISH, which eventually led to him having his own title again. Kane's artwork was awesome! And he definitely had his own style! But then in the early 80's he did some work on the Superman titles, I believe specifically ACTION COMICS. I don't think he handled Supes' main title. I remember he did at least a 'one-shot' for Supes also called 'The Ultimate Man' which I actually thought would've made a great film. Anyway, there was something very unique about his style.

I was never hip to Gil Kane. If you are, that's cool, but I never liked his stuff. He did several fill-ins on Superman and, I think, Spider-Man during the mid-90's, and each was worse than the last, in my opinion.

They're great, and you're right. People have to know we're getting a "kick ass" Superman this time. Something completely avoided in the last incarnation's publicity, because Singerman looked and acted like a dweeb throughout.

Exactly. Someone, buy this man a beer or something.

A dweeb. Or a stalker. Or a lovesick nerd. Or an Olympic swimmer in a fetish outfit. Or...

Does it? You've seen some of the reaction to that story. Not all of it has been completely negative. I'm not even going to give someone the opportunity to accuse me of liking that story or approving of that direction for the character. If it EVER comes in conversation, I'll make sure to mention that I think it sucks just so there's no room for ambiguity on the matter.

Around these parts? Yes.
