I think a deeper and richer version of the 1950s TV show theme would actually work really WELL in a Superman movie.
That is not a bad idea.

Actually, the John Williams theme itself already seems directly inspired by the initial fanfare in the 50's version.

""Heard rumblings from multiple people today that WB/Nolan aren't happy with early cuts of Snyder's Man of Steel.""

They also weren't overly happy with the first GL stuff either, right?

Let's hope this is only because Nolan has crazy high standards.

They have time to fix things if those sources are correct. The film doesn't come out for another year.

Yeah, it's still early to be getting worried.

Well if Nolan selected Snyder, I HAVE to think he was aware of what the final product was going to look like...

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Not really a big deal if true. Nolan re-wrote the script when there were script problems last year. As JacksonArcher stated, if this is indeed true, they have a whole year to fix whatever the problems are. Also fans have already been critical of Snyder's selection as director, so yes if this turns out to be disappointing again they're criticize him, just as Bryan Singer got criticized for "Superman Returns".

I'm personally looking forward to the SDCC Panel and possible footage coverage. I'm also betting that the teaser trailer will be attached with "The Dark Knight Rises".

Fans will probably have to wait more than 6 years for another Superman movie if this bombs.

There's so much pressure for "Man of Steel" to work. It's the second attempt revive the Superman franchise since "Superman Returns"


With Green Lanterns failure, "Man of Steel" has to lead the charge for future DC movies to be greenlit.

If "Man of Steel" fails expect the Batman reboot(with Nolan producing?) to be greenlit in a second.

It will be more Batman movie for the foreseeable future for DC

The joke I keep hearing online is that if this movie turns out great, people will praise Nolan but if it is bad they will blame Snyder. I'm pretty sure that isn't far from the truth!

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

There's even more pressure for "Man of Steel" to be a success due to the ongoing law suit. I believe Warner Bros film rights for Superman expire in August of 2013. If this fails, we could have a much longer wait than six years. I haven't read any updates about the lawsuit in a long, long time though so I'm not sure what the current situation is.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Last I heard, DC owns most of the key bits. What they don't have are rights to use certain aspects of the origin story, and a bunch of Superboy stuff.
