The rumors are running wild! Zack Snyder is loving it too I bet. I mean what did we really learn from the Man of Steel fan Q&A? Not much really, I never realised just how much Kevin Smith can gush when he's talking about Superman. Of course I probably would too if they gave me a custom plus size Hockey jersey with an actual S patch from one of Henry Cavill's Supe outfits. I did get really tired of hearing him talk during it all though.
Personally I thought they picked some pretty lame questions to answer. I mean 20 minutes on "What was your inspiration" no wonder they cut the FB version down to 3:47. Snyder wasn't revealing anything though. Not even the name of the movie He said he just liked playing with these characters "will they fight? Will they be friends? will they be friends that have a fight? Will they kiss? (No he didn't say that) He wouldn't even say if they were filming in Plano, Illinois where they filmed the Kent Family farm. (Which was probably the best done video question of the Q&A) instead Smith just gushed about how Superman inspired people to make great videos.
He only intimated that Lex Luthor was going to be the villian in MoS2 by saying that Lex Luthor "Loves to call Superman an alien" I'm sure people were wondering a lot more about the upcoming movie than the movie most people have already seen. Like what about the Wonder Woman rumors? Which quite honestly is the only thing that has me interested in this sequel. Now the other rumors piling up like Flash is going to be in this, possibly a new Green Lantern, and now Nightwing is rumored to have been cast. Nothing like muddling up the mongers.
Is it me or do they just look like two old guys getting ready to fight over the last pudding cup?
It's all just speculation right now and you have to keep people interested especially those people like me that aren't looking forward to Ben Affleck playing Batman. That wouldn't be their biggest mistake in my opinion though, personally trying to reboot Batman so soon after the success of Nolan's films is. But hey that's just my opinion and I'm just afraid Affleck is going to kill the DC movie universe before we get a chance to see the other heroes in solo movies and the Justice League. I could be wrong.
According to Cosmic Book news Kevin Smith did make a statement about Batmans new costume the next day-
"I saw the costume, more than that I saw him [Ben Affleck] in the costume...I don't want to give anything away cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this...I instantly bear hugged him. You have not seen this costume in film before. Because every other movie has done this matrixy black armor thing...There wasn't a single nipple on this [frick]ing suit man. I think everyone is gonna be like 'Holy Shit!' We haven't been down this path before. Even the Hardest core "[frick] this movie" person will be like 'alright, I'm ready!'
The more I hear about the speculation, the more disheartened I am about this movie (not that I'm eager anyways) But can you change my mind? Is Kevin Smith right, will I be ready? What do you think? Tell me what you thought about the Q&A, what questions do you wish you knew the answer to? I did think some of the artwork was pretty cool (see it here) anyways, did you?
