Because people have some basic knowledge of how such films are made.

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

Didn't the Byrne/Post Crisis Superman do some wandering before donning the cape? I think he and Bruce Wayne even "wandered" into the same place once.

Byrne invented the idea of Clark wandering the Earth before he became Superman. It kind of bugs me that people credit Mark Waid's Birthright for this element.

^ The idea of Superman srtruggling with who he is or even wandering certainly is not a Christopher Nolan idea. Even the very first episode of the Adventures of Superman with George Reeves show Clark struggling with what to do with himself and his powers.

Admiral Young, you may as well try to talk to the wall. He clearly has made up his mind and closed it firmly. Nothing is going to disabuse him of his prejudices about this film and its various makers.
Just wait until he watches Man of Steel ten times with the intent to find things to validate his stance. That will be fun.

Also, I added Zack Snyder's name to the tags, so case closed!

Superman The Movie showed a young Clark leaving the farm to find himself. The Salkinds just chose to skip ahead to the scene where he throws the crystal and creates the Fortress.

No wonder you don't like Nolan's Batman films, you have an aversion to quality stories. It's OK, I'm sure it will just be a phase and you'll be able to enjoy quality storytelling again.

Yup. Ma Kent even kept a scrapbook of disasters that didn't quite happen--Clark acting as a guardian angel even pre-Superman. A scrapbook that caused some trouble when Lex Luthor came sniffing into the connection between Superman and Clark.

Henry Cavill in F*** Magazine:

Chris Nolan wasn't there during the production itself, although I'm not sure how much work was done behind the scenes. I'm sure Zack had a phone call or two with him, but this is definitely Zack's baby. He was the man in charge, and we created the character together, as opposed to having too many outside influences.

Yes, because disliking one story means I hate all "good" stuff. I guess the fact that I really like the majority of Alan Moore's other comic stuff that I've read (V for Vendetta, The Killing Joke, The League of Extrodinary Gentlemen, Top 10) doesn't matter, because I dislike one of his more popular works .

Ugh. I really like John Byrne, but his Superman origin seems like something I wouldn't be interested in. I'll stick to his Marvel work.

Also, just because it was mentioned earlier as something I needed to watch before saying I truely hate Nolan , I watched Inception yesterday. While I may be very stubborn sometimes, but i'm not going to lie. I enjoyed it. It wasn't the best movie ever, but by how I rate movies its a solid 8 out of 10. I liked the concept, the characters were done well, and it had some cool visuals and action. The very end scene was really annoying (it was unneeded ambiguity at that point, personally I go with the ending being real) and it had a few other flaws but besides that it was entertaining from beginning to end, and even had a twist with the main character and his wife that I actually took me by surprise. Not perfect, but a good movie I'd watch again. So, Nolan's 1 for 5 with me. I guess this does mean its technically possible for him to be involved in a good Superman movie, but one success doesn't mean I'm a Nolan fan, or that I'll forget his horrible stuff. I do plan to watch Memento next, just to see if its any good.

So, there you go. I still think Man of steel will suck, but I guess I have to admit it is possible it may be good.

You should see Memento now, I'd really like to hear your comments on that one as it's what made me like Nolan (though I'd be the first to admit I'm not a Nolan fanboy).
