Horrible choice ... He should have been Doomsday
This has to be one of the dumbest things I have ever read. He is Aquaman, not 'Land Dwelling Surferman' ... Let me guess, underwater ink?
Once the most powerful character in the DC universe, now a bit character for a tertiary DC character. Brandon was a great Superman. I would love to see him get a second shot.
@mcleve02 I think you are correct. This movie along with the stand alone sequels of Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America would be the prefect Avengers 2 set-up. Can you imagine how much money Marvel could make if it does these movies the correct way?
Huge mistake ... Tossing out the previous films; perfectly fine in my opinion. Toss out John Williams' original theme? We need to pass on this course of action. The original theme is simply unreal ... it is perfect for all Superman movies. I get goosebumps every time I hear it. There is a perfect Superman movie theme and John Williams' original theme to Superman is it.
Just what the world needs ... Another fable we are all to take as actual history. Too bad 90% of the world cannot tell the difference.
@themoviefanatic I believe this is all cake, the ice cream will be The Hulk, Thor, and Iron Man. I am being patient to this point, but like what I see so far.
I see that I am not the only one catching Renner's line of sight. Can anyone really blame the guy? She is rather easy on the eyes.
@lane1 Lane ... I like your style. I will concede it is an opinion that he needs a shave to sell the super hero persona, however, that is the nature of all reviews. I did offer non-spoiler insight into the film in that it lacked the needed action that would have helped the movie win greater viewership. I also commented on the CGI being "great". I left out the abysmal direction of the film, the fact that most of the film dealt with a confused Reynolds, and ineffective use of a pivotal character like Sinestro. My point is I did not want to dog-pile on the movie like the other 99% of the people who viewed it. I get the feeling you must have enjoyed the film. It is a decent film, nothing more. The fact that it has only made approximately $90 million domestically in two weeks says a lot for over dissatisfaction for the film by moviegoers. Fire the director, the screen writers, and produce a film that revolves around Hal Jordan going toe-to-toe with Sinestro ... People will love it!
At least he is finally out of the closet ...
100-minutes of filler ... barely 10-minutes in the costume. The CGI just did not do it for me. A full view of Welling in the costume would have been perfect. Those are my complaints, now on to the good stuff. I loved that he finally embraced what he is, put on the costume, and did something only Superman could do to thwart Darkseid. Kudos to the writers for creating the save the world via 'Fly-Only' option. I agree that Welling is a good Superman. He may need to hit the weights, but would look great as Superman on the big screen.
