Trailer - Man of Steel
Personally, we loved the 2006 re-boot of the Superman franchise. Being that, in a way, it was a a sequel to the 80's films made popular by the late Christopher Reeves, as it took place years later after Superman had disappeared for years and was now marking a comeback, Brandon Routh played it perfect for both Clark Kent and Superman, playing the role as an homage to the man that first updated the classic comic book for modern times. If you haven't seen it, we highly, highly recommend giving it a watch, as we think that the critics were wrong in their marginal assessments. Now...since re-booting comic book film franchises seems to be the only thing Hollywood can do, they are again attempting to re-boot Superman. We are a little wary, however after watching the initial trailer above, our skepticism has eased a little. With the direction of Zack Snyder, and producer duties by Christopher Nolan, they appear to be attempting to do for Superman what Chris did for Batman. We really hope it works out.
