Watched it again, and it really is my favourite comic book movie ever. Someone on Tumblr described it as somewhere between political noir and gothic opera. I'd agree. It's over the top, and there's so much going on in it but I find it gets better with each watch and it's visually incredible. And I personally think Zach Snyder understands how to do these superheroes for the now (while still respecting them as comic book characters and not being disdainful of the genre like Nolan mostly was) better than pretty much anyone else in the game, this quotation of his really struck me:I loved it too. I love it to Force Awakens levels. Saw it again tonight at the IMAX. It's puzzling as I'm more of a Marvel fan generally. It actually looks good too - all the Marvel studios films look like episodes of CSI, but this is actually visually stunning, like a graphic novel come to life. The music is amazing too - that Wonder Woman theme.
“Over the last two years he’s basically been Superman as pop culture would know him. He’s been righting wrongs, there have been floods, mines have collapsed, bridges have collapsed, churches have caught on fire. He’s basically been a hero. When we find him, he’s been dealing with the everyday world of being a superhero, but there’s a paradigm shift happening in that the unintended consequences of some of those rescues are starting to come into fruition. He’s starting to see that every action has a reaction. Like, if you’re just taking a cat out of a tree, you can’t touch anything or the arborists will say, ‘He damaged the tree branch when he got the cat down.’ Or, ‘The cat wasn’t neutered, so now there’s thousands of cats.’ There’s no winning anymore for Superman.”
People are doubting that Henry will ever get to play Superman again. They see this film's bombing resulting in Justice League being pushed back, solo Batman being pulled forward, and Superman gone bye-bye for many, many years.
