The Man of Steel....His Heritage, His Humanity and His Destiny
   I don’t ask much when filmmakers go for comic book adaptations. I just hope that A) the filmmakers would preserve the essence of the character and source material. B) I don’t mind changes as long as they serve to expand and apply the mechanics and elements to modern times and fans, and C) they should be able to create a story all their own without cheapening their goals. Comic Books are one of my main sources of entertainment, together with movies and so I care about its …

   OK, let's get this out of the way right up front. Superman is 80 years old. (Not the character, the franchise.) That means there are 80 years of history and tradition surrounding the character, spanning multiple mediums (comics, radio, TV, movies) and any filmmaker who wants to take on Superman must find a way to deal with all that history. Zack Snyder, director of "Man of Steel," has chosen to mostly just ignore it. Aside from a few basics - the emblematic "S," …

Those of you who remember Christopher Reeve's "campy" Superman films of the 1970's can forget anything you saw in those films.  There is nothing "campy" in this film and that is ok by me.  The film opens with the birth of Kal-el on Krypton.  His father has hidden Ka-el's birth because he is the first natural birth to happen in a few hundred years.  Like the book Brave New World all babies are born in a laboratory and conditioned to have specific …

Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Clavill) is a guy with...angst...a great deal of angst. He wants to fly around the planet and save people, but thanks to his earth daddy, Jonathon Kent (Kevin Costner) he's afraid to do that.                                                  & …

Grim Grinning Zod Comes Out To Terrorize
Let me first say that I've always believed that Superman as a whole is somewhat dull. Supes is bogged down by the fact that he ignited the Golden Age of Comics. He's an almighty being with few, if any, flaws, and that makes him boring to me.      There have been many attempts over the years to "humanize" him and give him flaws on the printed page (all to varying degrees of success) and even an attempt on the big screen with "Superman Returns," whenever …
