^ Why do you persist in calling "Man of Steel" a Nolan film? It really isn't. This is Snyder's film 100 percent. I don't know if you keep calling it a Nolan film because that supports your viewpoint on the film or not, but you're factually incorrect. Your dislike of Nolan is not giving Snyder the credit he deserves. Nolan did script polishes, and hired Snyder, but he hasn't been hands on the film since he started to concentrate on "The Dark Knight Rises".

Your continued lack of acknowledging the actual director of the film baffles me. Yes obviously with the people involved in the film Nolan's influence will be felt, but to continually ignore Snyder, or to consider him some kind of "puppet director" is wrong and incorrect.

The Dark Knight:
Story By: David S. Goyer, Christopher Nolan
Producers: Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas, Charles Roven

Man of Steel:
Story By: David S. Goyer, Christopher Nolan
Producers: Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas, Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder

Snyder's influence can't beat out the fact that its still written and produced by the same people as TDK and Rises (minus Snyder's wife, but she's not much of a factor). Snyder has had ok stuff, I guess (the watchman movie was mediocre, but it still made the story actually watchable, unlike the unreadable comic) but everyone else is Nolan's people. They've worked with him on atleast 2-3 movies, and they do things his way. There is absolutely no way this isn't Nolan's movie. A director is important, but I'm pretty sure the writers and producers combined have more influence in a movie than the director by himself. Plus, who's to say snyder isn't a huge fan of Nolan's? Maybe he likes Nolan's horrible style too, meaning this movie would have no one in charge who wasn't Nolan or a minion.

^ Not just not like the film, but I'm pretty sure he's stated he has no intention of seeing the film. I could be wrong with the latter, if so I apologize to the poster, but I am pretty sure that I recall him posting that in the past.

I'll see it on DVD when the library gets it, but thats it. I can't see any movies anyway, not even the good ones like Iron Man, but I wouldn't waste money on it if I could. As for why I post about it, its a superhero movie. I'm a superhero fan, so its something I consider worth posting about. Its a big event when it comes to superhero stuff, its hard to stay silent on it. I try to, since I know how I get when I have to deal with Nolan stuff, but sometimes it just comes out. Its grating to see him basically be declared the second coming with DC movies.

I just want to see some good DC superhero movies, done by people who think brooding, moronic, whiney characters aren't what superheroes should be. Nolan's idea of a superhero is a crybaby with laryngitis who doesn't actually want to be a hero and who has to be as realistic as possible. That means beards, angst, and generally being a moron, apparently. To be fair, the only other Nolan movie I've seen besides his batman stuff, The Prestige, has almost all of that as well (except the realistic part), but it atleast had a few twists and wasn't out to ruin a famous character.

So, while I think the movie will be terrible, it definately counts as something I take an interest in, being superhero related. I'm honestly not wanting to create a big argument, I just felt like posting my opinion.
Do you enjoy perpetuating a stereotype?
Don't believe everything I say.
