Things have been a little quiet on the Man Of Steel front lately. This is what happens when films go into their lengthy post-production phase. Luckily for us, though, a recent effects sizzle reel was shown to folk at a VFX industry event. This sizzle reel just so happened to contain some footage from Zack Snyder’s new Superman movie. Sadly there was no leak of the actual footage, but we’ve got the next best thing – a description of the action from a pretty reliable source. Wanna read all about it? Then join us after the jump.

Does what it says on the tin – By which I mean, there’s not a lot more to say other than what’s up there in the title. Big muscley star of The Tudors Henry Cavill with his top off. Superman sexy. Those two words together send a creepy shiver down my spine. Man Of Steel‘s abs of iron. I’ll stop now.


Let’s speculate, shall we? Continue reading

News: Henry Cavill Gets All Beardy On Man Of Steel Set

Looks to me like ol’ Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) is mixing it up with some down and outs to truly know what it’s like to be human. You know, alien superbeing understands us through our poorest and most put upon. It’s a lesson or something.

Or is he undercover for a story for The Daily Planet? Continue reading

Superman Returns…

For the first time in what feels like AGES, I ventured to the local cinema and caught a moofie. It was Superman Returns, a film I’ve been stupidly excited aboot since, like, christmas or something. My review – It was good. Really good. But not great.

The set pieces were FANTASTIC, the plane rescue and saving of Metropolis were superbly done. Brandon Routh is eerily reminiscent of Christopher Reeve, playing Clark with warmth and Superman with strength and dignity. Kevin Spacey is brilliant as Lex Luthor, his performace the perfect level of ham and genuine menace. On the downside, it was a little long, there’s a plot spoiler point really irks my fanboy sensibilities, and the ending was a bit ‘fneh’.

In my personal superhero movie ranking, Superman Returns would come behind Spider-Man/Spider-Man 2, and Batman Begins, but far ahead of the likes of The Hulk and Daredevil.

So, go see it, i say! Even if it’s just to play ‘spot the Christ allegory’…
