It'll probably be an average movie that'll have a solid box office run. But this is /co/, and particularly /co/ after three years of shitposting, both from apologists, shitposters and Zack Snyder himself. If this movie gets a RT score below 94% and a box office below $1.9 billion, there will be cries of flop.

And, Protip, it will.

RT: 74%, will get Certified Fresh.
B.O: $1.4 billion.


And once it's over, CIVIL WAR will come and a whole new slew of shitposting shall begin.

They're all so insecure.

They know the film is bad. They never actually have any arguments to the contrary that work, and they can never argue against the film's many, many flaws - all discussions with an MoSfag eventually boil down to "Did you even watch the movie!?" or "It's not bad, you just didn't like it, I thought it was the most emotionally engaging thing ever!" because they can't actually defend the film on a technical level. They're just desperately in love with a company and want the film to be good.

Pro tip: BvS is only tracking a little over 800 million.

It's release date, wonky dark+camp tone, clusterfuck 3rd act and the bland cast means at best this thing pulls Nolan Dark Knight numbers (1 billion ww).

As for RT...... this is a Snyder flick least we forget. 70% at best.
>>
>>78662757
I imagine the tracking will go up leading up to its release. It's got a budget of $410 million, earning only $800 million would make it a certified flop, wouldn't it?

Damn.

Avengers 2 has, what, a 74%? And general /co/nsensus is it's shit.
MoS gets a 54% and we get ">listening to RT, MOS WAS GOOD, FUCK "PROFESSIONAL CRITICS"."

I guess it comes with the territory of the DCU being the underdog that the DC defense force is so aggressive, but like I said, company wars, totally retarded.

Sure, which is why I predict it will at least pull in Nolan numbers.

Part of BvS tracking so poorly (relatively) is WB are notorious for poor marketing, that 2nd trailer for example. Hell look at Pan this year, WB was confident and even had a trilogy planned, huge flop and extremely poor marketing is part of the reason for that flop.

At the end of the day quality is what will determine BvS's box-office not the brand, the brand only guarantees this thing hits 700 million. And judging by the spoiler leaks it's not looking too good. Very by the numbers, very commercial.

A half way decent trilogy of Batman films after a bunch of shitty adaptations of some of DCs other IPs.

>>78661847

No, it wasn't a bad movie... it just wasn't a GOOD movie.

It was kinda boring, even with all the action, it didn't make a lot of sense, there were a ton of really stupid parts in it.

It should have just been two hours of Faora wrecking shit in increasingly skimpy outfits until she's buck-ass naked and suplexing Kal-El through buildings. Then the sequel would be Dawn of Hotness, with Faora and Power Girl fighting each other for a while then teaming up with Wonder Woman to kick the shit out of Batman, Lex Luthor, Doomsday, and all those other pieces of shit before running off to start a super-powered lesbian commune.
>>
>>78661847
Man of Steel was:
-An hour too long with at least 45 minutes of no-brainer cuts
-A confused mess of a plot with a majority of actions and dialogue conflicting with character's explicitly stated motivations as well as the basic themes of the movie
-Edited into an out-of-order mess that confuses whatever narrative line may have existed previously
-Tonally inconsistent at best, schizophrenic at worst

The movie's problems have nothing to do with Zod being murdered. Zod being murdered is a problem, mainly due to there being no build up or consequence, but it in itself is not a problem.

The problem is the shitty script.

You've been saying that your bullshit "lol anywun dat hates it hasn't seen the film" crap in that first post was just you calling out a guy for not watching the film, and that shit is a lie. You, as usual, defaulted to the dumbass pro-MoS line that people with other opinions just don't know what they're talking about.

I'd call you an idiot and say you're too stupid to understand or whatever, or that your retarded backbirth brain has made my morning better, but the truth is, you're just an insincere little fuckhead.
>>
For all the talk about how the movie had great action the only action sequence that really stands out is Faora versus the soldiers.

Clark versus Zod lacks tension since no one is taking damage. It's like a fighting game on training mode, the combos might be sick and all and you might even see some stage damage but without a KO it's always going to be lacking compared to the real thing.

I'm of the opinion that Man of Steel is neither and excellent nor shitty movie. It is simply one composed of excellent and shitty scenes. If you like the good more than the bad bothers you, you probably liked MoS. If the bad overshadows the good for you, you probably don't like MoS. Superman as a character has existed long enough, and been featured in so many different stories with so many different tones, featuring such different takes on the character that everyone absolutely has their own preferred version of him as well as the world around him. MoS is simply another one of those alternative versions. If it caters to you, and is more in line with versions of the character that you like, I am thrilled that you have a live action Superman you can enjoy. If I happen to not have enjoyed it, I don't think that makes me anything more or less than someone with a different preference or opinion than yours. I'm just so tired of debating this movie. There is a sequel coming out in 3 months, and instead of discussing it, all we can do is debate it's 3 year old predecessor, which is something that is actually going to happen in the sequel! Can we just move on already? This movie has just become such a victim of the metastasis of stop liking what I don't like/stop disliking what I like culture, and all these threads do is a continuing disservice to the ideals Superman so often stands for.

Scenes do not exist in a vacuum, they build upon one another to form a coherent narrative with a singular tone and a collection of themes and motifs.

The movie falls into that pit of a 5-7 in a scale of 10. It's not incoherent enough to be a universally agreed mess, but it's not stellar or unique enough to be considered a hit. In my opinion MoS creates some good visuals and occasional has some great lines, but overall the characters are uninteresting or annoying. The movie's version of Clark is too wooden, and it's Lois is horribly written, all other characters are not given enough dialogue for me to care about them. So as cool as any fight with Zod may look, I struggle to care because I don't feel anything for this Superman.

It might just be the greatest film of all time. But retards/oldfags/snyder haters/plebs don't seem to understand that. Snyder makes this feel like a comic, and unlike those shitty MCU projects, this feels more like the story of a legend, about one man finding out there's more to him than he thought. The score is also simply excellent, conveying the right sense of action, emotion and grand spectacle. The acting is fantastic too, Cavill proves that he is the best Superman to ever be, and Michael Shannon as Zodd will be one of the best superhero movie villains. The script is great too, with great lines and moments (the part where the soldiers lower their guns might just be the best part). But back to the directing, it was magnificent, it was like watching a comic book unfold, and they actually hired someone professional, unlike the MCU where they just hire hacks and nobodies who have been involved on TV shows, no less, Snyder has never made a bad movie and this film is no exception. And I do say film because its more artistic and masterpiece than any of the trite and banal pieces of garbage that the MCU puts out almost every year. Man of Steel will age like a fine wine, and in ten years time, it will be considered the magnum opus of comic book films.

I'll be the first to say that people need to stop treating the board like a hivemind but if you see the kind of post we're talking about you'd think the guy is samefagging to. It's not just the opinions he holds, it's the expression of them that's very distinct (dude can't spell or do a sentence that's not run on for shit, loves using words like "epic", and can't seem to go a run on sentence without cursing someone out for being a "campy baby barneyfag".

Yeah we've been having these threads daily. Is it so hard to believe we might have one autistic guy that keeps showing up for a whole lot of them? Because it's either that or some really uninspired copypasta.

I don't know much about it, but I know there's two guys that always flood these threads, the dude with the Sinestro and Chris Evans reaction images and the guy that gets pissed and calls people that didn't like MoS the oddly specific "camp-addicted selfish assholes who want Superman to blow sunshine up on their asses".

I don't think anyone here is the original people arguing anymore.

That said, nobody was being defended, one guy said that people upholding MoS always say detractors haven't seen it. Which is exactly what >>78661883
does.

He doesn't say "hey faggot why not see the movie?" He says "everyone who doesn't like this movie and posts about it hasn't seen it."
>>
>>78663760
They don't seem to grasp the idea of GENERAL consensus versus UNANIMOUS consensus. Having said that, MoS is split pretty much 50/50 so it's not really right to say there's a general consensus for or against it here either.

So, you're both wrong. The only general consensus thing is that Raven and Power Girl are waifu material.

I'm talking about the two times we did polls. The results were split 50/50 or close enough to even.
Having said that, those polls were set up in a way that didn't allow for you to say it was average or okay or that it had flaws. It was a binary "It was greatest of all time" versus "It was dogshit" choice, and those are inherently flawed. A poll with more options would probably tend to the negative, but the poll result data we do have was an even split

In my experience this board has the worst representations of both people who love/hate MoS. It usually boils down to caps lock, buzzwords, and ethical debate which lead nowhere. The diverse opinion is fascinating really, it's not even about the film anymore, just being right. Personally I liked MoS, but I completely understand why others wouldn't and don't expect nor try to change their minds.

You should just stick to saying that critics generally hate it (which would still be wrong given what the 55% RT actually represents), since the DVD sells, IMDB score, box office, and RT audience score indicate that most non-critics actually like it.

>>78664401

Homie, I am all for expressing your sincere opinion on something, but remember the keyword; sincere.
If we were to run another poll, especially dealing with fuckwit company wars, how many DC fans would say MoS is the greatest movie that has ever graced our humble earth, simply because it's a DC movie? And how many Marvel fans would say it's shit because it's DC?

Polls on this kinda shit are finicky, and don't fool yourself into thinking you'll get an honest opinion about anything here.
>>
>>78663151
DC is too focused on the iconography of each character and not the character itself. So we get Hal Jordan, (THE Green Lantern) Barry Allen, (THE Flash) and of course the trinity, which features Superman, (THE original superhero) Wonder Woman (THE female superhero) and Batman, who everyone likes. Problem is that Hal, Barry, and Diana are boring as shit, since DC is focused on them being so fucking iconic instead of giving them real character traits that make them relatable to the audience, and Superman gets boring real quick unless there's a talented writer behind him (not Goyer). Batman has flaws built into his character by default, so he is easily relatable on some level.

Marvel, on the other hand, focuses on making the characters come before the superpowers. In short, the A-list DC characters mostly fail the Plinkett test, while the Marvel A-listers pass with flying colors. You can go on for a while about Tony Stark's character before ever having to say "and he's in a robot suit." How far can you get with Barry Allen before you come to "And he runs really fast?" Can't wait until Cyborg borings his way onto the big screen to be a black robot and nothing else.

I wish DC would take a cue from its B- and C-listers and give them real personality. But I guess the B- and C-listers are so out of the public eye that they can afford to take risks with the writing without being crushed by the iron grip of executive oversight.

This is a poor argument.
>>
>>78664637

Marvel actually have the advantage in that initially many of their most popular characters and franchises weren't available to them.

If Marvel still had Spidey and Wolverine you could be absolutely quarantine constant reboots of webhead and sniktbub.

DC on the other hand is getting caught in the constant trap of doing endless reboots of origin stories because the only solid hero they have that's easy to write is Batman.

Superman is incredibly hard to write well which is why his comic sucks for decades at a time. WW has a completely awful rogue's gallery, GL generally sucks and is expensive to do because endless CGI instead of practical.

Their best shot of doing a good series would be to do most of the JL in their own TV shows and save GL and the Trinity for the movie crossovers.
>>
>>78664673
That it may be, but my point still stands.

If you wanna honest opinion on shit like this your best choice is to do the legwork and monitor threads about it.

It's puss easy to go to a poll and say "Yes it good" or "No it bad" but at least in a thread you actually have to defend your opinion and give reasons it's good/bad and prove you're not just shitposting and lying out of your ass.
>>
>>78664810
>Superman is incredibly hard to write well which is why his comic sucks for decades at a time
Confirmed casual. Superman, Batman, and Daredevil have the largest stable of notable comics. You're describing Iron Man, which is under some sort of curse, and was marked for dead by Civil War, before RDJ saved him (fucking Bendis is the best thing to happen to him in the comics; even Demon In the Bottle is a difficult read), or even Spider-Man, who's gone through the like of Slott, One More Day, and the Clone Saga for decades on end.

>GL sucks
And yet Geoff Johns Green Lantern was DC's cashcow, along with Batman. I could see CW doing constructs with 90s CG.

>How far can you get with Barry Allen before you come to "And he runs really fast?"
Have you watched the series?
>>
>>78664956
>It's puss easy to go to a poll and say "Yes it good" or "No it bad"

That's exactly why it's a better method than something that selects for the relatively small minority who actually care enough, and who are willing to put in the effort, to do the later.
>>
>>78665162
>Have you watched the series?

Unfortunately. Barry is so bland in that series. It's like watching a piece of toast in a red suit. Thawne was the most interesting character in that show by a long shot. The rest are just meh, except maybe Cop Dad.

>>78665162
>The guy from 1938 has the largest stable of notable comics
REALLY?! WHAT A FUCKING SURPRISE.

Spider-Man has a better ratio of good stories:bad stories than Superman does. Also, literally none of the shit you posted for Spider-man has gone on 'for decades on end'.
>>
>>78665162

Are you really claiming that Superman wasn't completely shit for the entire silver age until Byrne rebooted him in the 80s?

Superman has the occasional good story but for the most part Superman goes long lengths of time being completely forgettable. Combined with the aging of the comic reader demographic (most comic readers have aged out of the 8-12 year old Superman wish fulfillment fantasy) and Superman struggles to get solid traction with current audiences.

This isn't to say that Superman can't be done right but Superman origin stories are generally god awful and how often do you want to sit through a Lex Luthor vs Superman movie?
>>
>>78665293

Tom Cavanaugh is so much more talented as an actor and so much more charismatic as Thawne than Barry is.

It's kinda hard not to root for him. Same with Captain Cold.

That's because everybody expected prime Nolan for some reason.
I expected a Zach Snyder movie (either a mostly shot-for-shot adaptation of an existing work or a visually stunning standalone with a standard-to-dull story).
I got a Zach Snyder movie and was satisfied. The fights were phenominal and Cavill wore the cape well. Its only real problem was Pa Kent, partially because his character was an idiot and partially because I just don't like Kevin Costner.

And if WB had any balls it would've been a good start to a King Superman arc, which would've led to a much better Batman v Superman than what we're getting.

Case in point I think DC has better TV shows, better video games, better cartoons and better comics than its competition. I also think Man of Steel is a trainwreck, and the train was carrying nothing but shit. So what side do I fit in on this shitty console war battlefront?

>>78669036
>because when you do a movie with themes like hope, christianity and messianic figures, you don't go for a destruction porn movie.
There is no point in a bright beacon of hope in a bright hopeful world.

The point is to show him badly struggling to do great things but strives hard and does so anyway. Someone who can save the day no sweat, no hardship and no consequence is not relatable and it not as well written narrative wise.

The Christianity and messiah aspects is to show his potential, while the film shows you the reality, that he is just a everyman in a very bad world trying to do good.

Superman is the worst case of untapped potential I've ever seen. DC/WB keeps trying to shove the Superman peg into the Batman hole and it just doesn't work. Superman is not Batman.

No Zod is a sentient being who made his own choices, this is like saying im the bad guy if a unintentionally leave my yard tools out and they get seen and stolen and used to murder people with.

> There was literally nothing to get the people on his side
The fact that he turned himself over to the military by his own hand knowing he would be turned over to Zod.
The fact that he did not let Zod destroy the world.

MoS is one of the few movies where Rotten Tomatoes' inherent flaws shine through.

Read the actual reviews, instead of spouting a percentage.
You'll find that the majority of the critics who gave the film a negative review did so because they disliked the tone and direction that Snyder was taking with Superman. Very, very few critics actually said that the movie was bad on a technical level.

In terms of storytelling, worldbuilding, and visuals, MoS is fantastic.

It doesn't. It just makes him unfaithful to the character. Pic related is nearly every other "not Superman there is" Maybe one of them would be more to your liking. Clearly you love the costume, but not the man who wears it.

You are so fixated on two or three points and those are the only ones you're capable of bringing on.

No its not, I can relate to his cause, but I can't relate to his struggle, because there is no struggle, Reeves and traditional Superman literally can do anything and everything right, it is entire shtick that he can resolve any problem without killing or making hard decisions at all.
I like his idealism, I like his cause, I have a problem when writers refuse to test or break that, Mos did that, they gave him realistic real world options and he did the best thing under the circumstances.

My other favourite foundation of Superman - "let some people die so more people don't die". How inspiring
>>
>>78672384
A thematically weightless accomplishment.
The movie was written around its ending and the ending doesn't even have the punch it needs to be effective. Are we really suppsoed to be surprised that Clark killed Zod? Superheroes in movies almost ALWAYS kill the villains. Boo hoo he's conflicted? So's every character.

All Snyder they did was make him more generic, not less.

>Except save his father from dying from a heart attack. Like in the first Donner Superman

The point is he can always resolve battles and conflict the right way. His dad's heart attack was nether.

There was absolutely NO reason for him to do so, that sub plot was absolutely unbearably fucking stupid in Superman 2.

Kevin Costner is a good enough actor that we can tell when he's blurting something out. There was like five seconds of forethought before he said that. That's not blurting out anything.

>>78672509
>The world might tear itself a new ass if we found out aliens existed with this much power.

Gee it's almost as if they were trying to say that despite all his powers there are some problems that Superman is just as human in dealing with and can't do shit about, thus making the character more relatable.

Wow thanks Pa Kent for being a burden on Superman and telling him not to save people. So he's a shitty character which was my original point.

Pause is just that, pause. A MOMENTARY halting of action. Man of Steel Supes doesn't act at all until there's no better options. And sometimes not even then. He's really, really passive as a protagonist.
>>
>>78672433
Because CONFLICT!
>>
>>78672284
ok. fair enough

Pa Kent being conflicted on Clark saving the kids but sacrificing his life to save a dog is bad characterization
Clark not showing to care about all the death and destruction around, but devastated with Zod's murder, and making out with Lois 10 seconds after is bad characterization
Zod being genetically engineered to ensure his species survives, but does everything he can to doom them just for the codex is bad characterization.


Lois and Jor El are just walking plot conveniences.
Jor El shows up in time to warn Clark about Zod, Lois appears everywhere the plot needs her to be without a serious justification.
The messianic/christian themes are hamfisted and lack subtlety, and this is the definition of bad writing.

The movie's pacing in the first half is out of place, with constant flashbacks to give depth to the characters, again with total lack of sutlety. Compare all that clusterfuck to how TWS introduces Sam Wilson.


The direction is totally bland, with only exceptions the scenes where it's dictated by marketing , those scenes are even worse.

The final battle lacks one of the most important elements of a good fight, urgency. In the whole fight you know that neither Clark nor Zod will get hurt, and everything else just doesn't have enough exposition to be considered important.


and those are just from the top of my head, and i didn't even touch the bad acting or the terrible dialogue.

Hey anon, good start

Don't forget:

-The opening Krypton sequence is ultimately pointless and could be cut entirely, bringing the film to a more reasonable runtime
-Jor El immediately disproves the entire basis of his own anti-GE philosophy by beating the genetically engineered master soldier in a fistfight
-Jor El had absolutely no reason to save the codex whatsoever as it represented and perpetuated everything he believed was wrong with Kryptonian culture; he should have left it there to rot, but didn't because then there'd be no movie
-At some point the filmmakers got so confused about the natural vs genetic engineering theme that Faora said something retarded about evolution always winning despite being made by a process which expressly disallows evolution
-Seven Eleven! Sears! Ihop!
-Jor El takes over the Kryptonian scout vessel to show Clark his suit, and then after that happens a robot powers up and starts killing the shit out of Lois. Why did Jor El want to kill Lois so bad?
-Pa Kent shows the space USB drive to a metallurgist who tells him it's made of something never seen on Earth before. Said metallurgist either then suffered total amnesia, or was killed by Pa Kent.
-The crux of Superman's "arc" is meant to be his desire to respect his father's words and stay hidden conflicting with his desire to help people, which is totally ruined when he reveals his powers just to fuck up some prick's truck. Fuck you, Pa.

The build up was the entire movie. The fight scene also builds up to that point. There was absolutely no other way it could have ended.

The codex is the species. In his mind he was doing everything to bring back Krypton.

I didn't actually mind the tornado scene. Pa Kent didn't know he was going to die, and when he realized, he made the decision to sacrifice himself to protect Clark's secret. He gave Clark the chance to choose to be a hero when he is more mature, which he does. I'm not really sure what is wrong with that.

My critiques, overall I enjoyed the film:
>Zod literally saying "Either I die or you do" is way too hamfisted
>The Flashbacks coupled with the different jobs Superman was working made the first act seem really janky.
>The "he's hot" line at the end is completely out of context in the film
>Lois and Clark had no real chemistry and she was a little too involved in the plot
>I'm not really sure why the Krypto's needed to terraform earth. Clark was on board with helping them out until they said they would fuck earth up, even though they didn't need to do that.

Overall the visuals were great and the world building was consistent, a solid start for an extended universe.
