If it's another critical disaster, you can look forward to Batman movies and only Batman movies until the end of time.
Shame really.

Green Lantern was suppose to help push for more DC comic movies. Now Man of Steel has double the weight on it's shoulders.

It was already under pressure to do better than Superman Returns.
But Superman Returns wasn't a critically disaster. It got fairly positive reviews and it made a good chunk of money (more than Batman Begins, if I remember correctly). What did it in was its insane budget (which, according to some reports, included all the previous attempts to create a Superman movie since the 90s).

If the budget is modest this time around, I'm sure Man of Steel will be financially successful.

It would be a little ironic if Man of Steel makes tons of money and suffers critically. I live a few hours away from filming. Perhaps I should visit.

People love to rip "Superman Returns". They'll rip "Man of Steel" as well no matter if it's a box office hit or not.

That's not irony. That's standard practice for your typical Hollywood blockbuster.

A bit of a reversal for you JA. You're not in Pittsburgh covering the Dark Knight filming but you're going to the MOS set.

I still don't trust this director. I just don't think he's a very good filmmaker.

^^I agree, I liked his Dawn of the Dead remake but everything he's done since has been a misfire. At this point with the Superman films DC and Warner might've been better off picking somebody with a more proven track record.

Here are some of the same set pics and also, while not from the Superman set, pics of Henry Cavill at Comic-con; he's promoting another movie but has his Clark Kent/ Superman hair, to include kiss-curl.

He really was such a great choice. He's got the look down pat IMO.
