I have said much on this topic but when I saw this over the weekend, I just had to post it here.
Love him or hate him, Max Landis speaks his mind about Superman and Man of Steel. Not only about what seems to be missing for many of us out there but also about superhero movies in general. I have to say much of what he discusses here I agree with and wish it happened more.
I have said before and will continue to feel this way. Dark and gritty worked for Batman but each hero and story needs to be true to what made them enduring icons for decades of fans. It’s not about always being slaves to the material but properly understanding and interpreting the story for another medium. I get it, Max gets it and maybe one day, film execs will get it… yeah right, money grubbing bastards.
If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
My other recent posts about Superman and other things I didn’t like.
