Man of Steel should have been the 2nd movie. This one should be Superman Starts.

You know, like Batman Begins? It was right there in the title man. Now the order is all screwed up, I don't think this movie is going to do so well.

For the love of god i hope this movie will be good considering superman is my favorite superhero.

Everyone already knows how Superman starts. Why would anyone want another origin story?

Wait... don't tell me this movie is another origin story... is it?

I'm tired of them always rebooting something and doing an orgin story, Superman didn't have the most interesting orgin story imo. In general I'm tired of comic book super hero movies, could we get some original super hero movies for once Hollywood?

It is an Orgin story, just like every other super hero movie being released. It's all just been restarted for the currerent generation of people.

And Superman Starts is a god awful title for a film

Superman Starts? That's an awful title.... No disrespect, but it's just awful. I like Man Of Steel.

"superman starts" LOL

anyway, i really don't like how the villain of man of steel is general zod; they should've gone with braniac, or something that past superman films haven't done.

Superman Starts is terrible, the alliteration doesnt save it. Hell, Superman: Source is better.

I'd rather have Zod than Lex Luthor--again--any day of the week. Superman was one of those characters that I kind of strayed away from as I got older. With that said, the movie looks interesting. It can't be any worse that Superman Begins.

'Superman Starts' is the silliest name for a movie I've ever heard.

Man of Steel sounds way better.. And from what I have seen from the trailer is a much more thought provoking Superman.. In which Superman is forced with the concept of whether he should ever help people due to people being fearful of him.. This one seems to be a far deeper story than past Superman's..

I've probably watched the 2nd trailer like 500 times.....the music score "Storm" is amazing.

Oleg_Huzwog

it is.

I was talking with my friend a few days back, and we were talking about this. I really think, that unless it's either been a very very long time or it has never been done on the big screen - you should do an origin tale for the super hero.

but if it's like Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, The Hulk, where everyone and their mom KNOWS how they became the superhero, don't bother with an origin tale. I propose doing the 'best of' movie making. Get the best stories and make those into movies, or make stories inspired by elements in those best stories.

Like i'm right now looking at the X-Men franchise, the new Wolverine movie is based on one of his storylines. the next X-Men movie is based on X-Men: Days of Future's Past storyline.

That's what makes me worried about the Marvel movies (Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Ant Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers, etc) the longer they go on for, the more they will have to either lightly reference or overtly reference to the past movies in order to get the audience up to speed. Because that's the thing that keeps most people away from comics, there is so so much backstory to know. It's like the number 1 question from someone who wants to read comics - "where should i start?"

and i'll just say this, as a huge Iron Man fan, i'd never tell someone "oh yeah you gotta start from Iron Man's first comic, when he first appeared in Tales of Suspense!" no only is that 40+ years of material, but not written for teen/young adults in mind, it's written for 8 years olds, with the intent of buying it for a quarter and tossing it in the trash once done. Also it's a world where transistors do just about everything :P but i digress.

totally agreed. but i really wish they'd do one of Superman's other villains. Brainiac, Darkseid. either one of those two could be AMAZING. hell just adopt the story idea that it was Brainiac who destroyed Krypton (from the animated series). but i am so sick and tired of them relying on Lex Luthor.

It only really makes sense to do an origin story at this point. Superman Returns tried to avert that by being a pseudo sequel to Superman 1 and 2, but it did relatively poorly. Why would WB want to release a movie thats not an origin story when it would just bring all that baggage with it? Keep in mind that the last Superman origin story was in theaters over 30 years ago... Im also a little tired of Zod, but I also think he is the best villain for Supes to face in his first go around. After that, Id love to see Metallo or Braniac.
