The Man of Steel Rumor That Would Change Superman For The Worse


There’s been an unsettling rumor floating around about Man of Steel. If true, it would mark a pretty major change to the Superman mythos, and one that we can’t at all agree with. Consider this your spoiler warning for something that might be.

Last chance before spoilers!

The story is too old to be commented.

I've suspected this as well, but to be entirely honest, I don't think it's as bad as this article is making it out to be. It would be a major change (if true), but his uniqueness remains intact. He's set up to be a 'pure bred' (which we knew about) Kryptonian which is supposed to not happen, as they're all genetically engineered. This makes him different and allows him the ability to choose the life he wants for himself. This is who Superman is.

He still grows up on Earth, learning the value of life at the hands of his adopted parents, and for the most part, he's still struggling to figure out who he is, where he comes from, and his place in the universe (just as he's always done). Even if Krypton is still around and he has a chance to go back, he learns this as an adult, he still grew up the same way as before, which is what shapes the man he becomes.

I don't see this as a big deal, aside from being more true to the comics.

Yea the idea of Krypton not having been destroyed doesn't phase me one bit.

DarkBlood1899d ago

yeah if anyting im more curious to know how you genetically engineer someone to be whatever it is they want to be.

The whole pure bred thing, i assume it has something to do with no knowledge in place of his mind hence allows superman to be who he wants to be.

he just got to think for himself on it pretty much?

Blacktric1899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

Am I missing something here or is there some evidence that suggests that Zod will die in Man Of Steel? Because if not, he can blow up the damn planet after the events of Man Of Steel, thus making the whole thing come full circle.

Not surprising to see io9 publishing a sh*t article like this though. It's like the ultimate haven for pretentious pseudo-intellectuals.

Somebody1899d ago

That would make the story much more interesting. But now he reminded me more of Goku from Dragon Ball. An alien baby was cast off to a faraway planet. Then a fellow alien came to bring him home but he refuses because it is against his upbringing (Krytpon's warlike culture and Earth's culture).

You'd have to have an IQ of 10 to believe this.

Th3 Chr0nic1899d ago

too bad most Hollywood writers suffer from this "IQ of 10" problem. hence this is totally believable.

StarWarsFan1899d ago

I don't know if it will necessarily change it for the worse. I still don't know how much I like of the trailer that was released. I just hope there's some fun in it and it doesn't take itself too seriously. The trailer just seems overly dramatic and too deep.

Crazay1899d ago

It has to be serious this time. It's almost like a coming of age film.

RetrospectRealm1899d ago

Lot of criticism lately for MoS. Pity.

MaleManSam1899d ago

Am I the only one confused and put off by the casting of Amy Adams as Lois? She's ten years older than Henry (Superman) and she looks it, she's just not what I see when I think of lois and no one has ever pictured her being like Amy in any publication of sorts..

She's just (her comes the dislikes) too old looking and not sexy enough.. :/

darklordzor1899d ago

My goodness! I don't think I could disagree more. She's drop dead gorgeous and I honestly don't see her looking that much older than Cavill in the film. Besides which she's also a strong actress. Are there hotter girls that could have done it? Sure, but I'd rather have someone with good acting talent and good looks, than just some eye candy.

Crazay1899d ago

I fully disagree with you in every sense. She's very very good looking and exudes all the qualities that Lois Lane should have. Confidence, strength of character and sex appeal. Amy Adams is the very definition of those qualities.

MaleManSam1899d ago

Was kate Bosworth a good choice for Superman Returns, she is practically the same level as Amy in this sense (I love Amy in most of her other movies but I just cant let it gel with this)

I didn't say "Hotter" girls, It's not I'm expecting someone like Megan fox or some rubbish like that, more like how Maggie Gyllenhaal was picked for TDK, thats more appropriate.
