The suit looks pretty cheap in my opinion (cowl area)

Although costumes are costumes...it's who's in the costume that counts. Unfortunately we didn't do well on that front either.

"Man of Steel was a letdown"

Oh come on it was pretty good for what it was. Henry was fantastic as Superman.

If it wasn't for your occasional MoS praise, i'd say you love trolling DC -Foxtrot ol' buddy ol' pal. You constantly spew negativity on anything related to the Flash, Arrow, Gotham, and BvS.

Did DC kick your dog or something?

Why do you care so bloody much what my opinion is...do I go to your comments and go "Your opinion SUCKS, I don't like it"

Your only getting ticked off because someone has different opinions them you. It's kind of sad man, do you do this for everyone.

I don't rage over your or other peoples opinions on here

I like DC I just think...IN MY OPINION, the shows like Arrow/Flash/Gotham aren't that good because they don't respect the source material (and other smaller things) that much. They are made for a mainstream audience and because of that mainstream audience who don't have a clue about comics they couldn't give a shit what they add/don't add or don't get right. I have more DC comics then Marvel so it bugs me more with DC.

Chill man, they are just opinions. Do you think I'm going to rage at the author of this piece for not liking Man of Steel, I'll question it like I've done but I'm not going to hate on him for it.

Honestly...

EDIT

As for your edit below, I didn't disagree you so you know. Paranoid much ¬¬

I'm good with Cavill as Superman, but my problem with Man of Steel is in some of the choices they made while writing it. For instance, Jor-El has such a huge focus of being cool and an inspiration, while Jonathan Kent comes off in such a bad light. I'm also not the biggest fan of the casting of Amy Adams.

-Foxtrot1459d ago

See that's what I didn't really like about it, he's not really supposed to know his real dad, Jonathan is supposed to be the one who is an inspiration and teaches his "son" values.

I like it but I'll take it for what it was.

I didn't like the end scene with Zod aswell...the whole laser thing on the family.

He should of been beaten then imprisoned.

Are you serious? <_>

"Why do you care so bloody much what my opinion is"

You shared your opinion on a public board! It had a reply button & i was curious as to why you seemed to dislike all of the above.

"Do I go to your comments and go "Your opinion SUCKS, I don't like it""

Sometimes. And i have proof. It's where i got & you lost 2 bubbles. I really don't wanna go there. Also i didn't say your opinion sucked because it differed or sucked at all for that matter. I simply asked why the massive amount of negativity towards DC. There was no need to get all defensive. And, look...

"IN MY OPINION, the shows like Arrow/Flash/Gotham aren't that good because they don't respect the source material (and other smaller things) that much.

THAT is a valid answer. Thank you for that at least.

"As for your edit below, I didn't disagree you so you know. Paranoid much ¬¬"

lol i added the post, edited it and your post was right above mine. There was no one else around and the article was brand new. Obviously our opinions differ greatly apparently so i figured it would be you. I'll admit it was silly of me. If it honestly wasn't you then i'm sorry for the false accusation.

Sexy. No hom... oh my god it's a trinity pic. O_O

At least i think it... no, i'm fairly certain they're teasing a trinity photo. If you look at the bottom right corner you'll see they're just about clipping something out of frame. $5 says we'll get a pic of Cavill's Superman facing the opposite way tomorrow. And the full pic with Gadot's Wonder Woman in the center shortly after that.

Edit: @ disagree: Dammit -Foxtrot! xD

ToeKneeManGo1459d ago

There's definitely still time for a trinity pic over the next few days, which would be awesome.

For that matter, show us a picture of Luthor, too!

@Foxtrot - Since I can't reply directly to your comment for some reason, replying here.

Totally agreed about Zod's death. I wasn't as annoyed that he killed Zod as much as I was that it didn't mean as much as it was supposed to. If he had spent the entire time before that treasuring everything precious about life and whatnot, it would have been a bigger decision, rather than just the mindless destruction and choosing not to save people and such. It seemed like it bothered him more that he had to kill Zod than that he let his father die. Too much pro-Krypton stuff, not enough pro-Earth mentality.

There's definitely some awesome stuff in the movie that I can praise, but I was really hoping for a Superman film I could be proud of in the way that Iron Man was to me for Marvel.

"If he had spent the entire time before that treasuring everything precious about life and whatnot, it would have been a bigger decision"

But he did, he saved countless people throughout his life starting with a bus full of kids at the age of 12!! He went as far as to ignore the words of his father and the possible poopstorm that would come just for saving those kids. He saved an oil rig full of workers, General Hardy twice. And Lois three times. That's more people directly saved by Supes in MoS than in Superman 1 & 2 combined! Clark clearly valued life. He knew all too well what he was risking with his constant heroics. And the death of Zod was more than necessary. Supes failed to send him back to the phantom zone. Jor-el & Emil Hamilton were dead. Zod was a bred warrior and was growing accustomed to Earth's atmosphere at an alarming rate. The atmosphere hindering Zod was Clark's ONE and ONLY advantage. He killed Zod, the last remainder of his race, the last hope of restoring Krypton. He was a lifelong pacifist forced to make an incredibly tough choice, and, he chose us. He killed Zod to save Earth, TO SAVE SEVEN BILLION PEOPLE. He's still the beacon of hope, and the moral compass he has always been. Man of Steel had some shabby writing but it showed Superman in his full glory. If that isn't something to be proud of i don't know what is lol!

Also outta curiosity, Iron Man? Wasn't Tony smuggling nukes to terrorists? "The merchant of death". He only pulled a 180 because he was tortured and almost killed! :0 Fun movie and i love RDJ but the Tony is far from a dude to stand proud in front of the human race. Just my opinion.

Nolando1458d ago

Totally agree, I also hate when people COMPLAIN about how destructive the fight was between Zod and superman...

This is the first movie we get a REAL fight between Superman and someone who can go toe to toe with him how did people think it was going to go down! there was no way for him to avoid the fight cause Zod was hell bent on killing everyone. AND they mainly fought in the already destroyed part of the city! So its not like there were tons of civilians hanging out taking their lunch break...

Plus Superman was clearly anguished by the fact he had to choose between one of the other. AND if I read correctly the people writing this movie said we get to see how killing someone affected Superman on a personal level.

I digress. The movie I thought was amazing, it had some flaws like every movie but as a superman fan I was really happy with it.
