As many of you should know by now, Superman has another movie set to release sometime next year, don’t worry though, it is going to have no affiliation with Superman Returns from 2006. So I ask you, is it a good thing to take another crack at a Man Of Steel movie after the worldwide disappointment the last one received? I say, it will be fantastic if done correctly. But there is quite a long list of do’s and don’ts that the creators of the “Man Of Steel” must consider, and even one slip up could give a bad impression on the entire film.
Superman is arguably the most powerful character in all of comics and I don’t need to tell you why. The creators need to realize this, they are not just dealing with a “pretty strong” guy, they are dealing with the strongest person in the entire DC Universe (Boom!). By that logic, he should be given an incredibly challenging task to overcome. I’m not talking about reversing the rotation of the Earth in order to save two missiles; I’m not talking about lifting a krypto-island into outer space. A 21st century Superman needs a physical opponent, powerful enough to pose a deadly threat to him and the entire universe. This could mean Darkseid, General Zod, Doomsday; hell even Brainiac could make a great villain. But the creators gotta realize that Lex Luthor just wont cut it with today’s Superman and I must admit, I’m getting a little tired of kryptonite, at least green anyway.
