Man Of Steel: early reactions, Man Of Steel 2 news
Zach Snyder's Superman reboot is going down well it seems. So much so, that Man Of Steel 2 is being worked on...
Just one or two bits and bobs regarding forthcoming Superman reboot Man Of Steel have come to light, so we're rounding them up here.
Firstly, there's been talk of one or two early screenings of the film, with the reaction to them being really very positive. Granted, you'd sort of expect that at this stage, but over at JoBlo, the site has feedback from at least one person who's very enamoured with Zack Snyder's new movie. Amongst the comments coming out of that preview screening?
“Imagine a Nolan story with Snyder effects/action.”
“It’s the best movie of the year.”
“There’s tons of action with Superman kicking all kinds of ass in his suit.”
“The cape is CGI’d most of the time so it can look awesome.”
“They have intentionally left out most of the Super action in the trailers to save it.”
“It’s not nearly as dour and serious as the trailers suggest.”
The requisite pinch of salt is, of course, required, but every report we've read of early Man Of Steel screenings has also been positive. Fingers crossed it works out as well as it's looking like.
Also on Man Of Steel, a story has broken over at Think McFly Think, which suggests that Warner Bros has turned to David S Goyer to formally start work on Man Of Steel 2. Warner Bros has form with this: it likes getting writing going on sequels before an initial film is released. Sometimes it uses the work (Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows) and sometimes it doesn't (Green Lantern 2). But the studio is reportedly rather keen to get a second film moving as quickly as it can.
Man Of Steel arrives in cinemas on June 14th.
