It is a bit nostalgic to watch movies like “back to the future” and “Star Wars” for people like me who were born in the late 70’s era where superheroes, comics, sci-fiction and animation were the norm as we became the first guinea pigs to watch these prevalent kid’s shows.
I’ve got a copy of the original (first) Superman movie as portrayed by the late Christopher Reeves. As I was watching the first of the quadrilogy set, I was impressed that the film makers who made the introduction scenes of the movie were able to carry a cosmic affinity to the film’s setting even with the absence of any technological advancement in movie making during that time.
I went through the first two parts of the boxed set and I can say I am very satisfied with the quality of the film even though I was “brain-washed” with the current dynamism of CGI animations on superhero franchises of today.
I was a bit puzzled when I heard the news of another Superman movie coming 2013. A reboot of the popular man in tights of blue and a red cape and “not” a follow up to the previous “Superman Returns” film which starred Brandon Rout.
Hey! Why make another one?!
But then, I found out that the remake will be done under the intrinsic movie mastery of Christopher Nolan. Wham! Remember, how he tickled our minds with his curtain closer puzzle in Inception. And of course, the wickedness and the eerie character of the Joker (well played by Heath Ledger) in the Dark Knight. So what more can we expect from the new Superman movie?
If you liked Nolan’s Batman, I think this is something we should look forward to.
Though Nolan won’t directing this one and instead Zack Snyder will be commanding the set, I hope Nolan would provide some inputs to the movie.
The new superman franchise will be flying to our silver screens by 2013 carrying the title “Man of Steel” and is set to be played by Henry Cavill (Tudors, Immortals, Stardust).
I hope they will make Clark Kent more compelling and close to reality like Bruce Wayne in “The Dark Knight.”
