What If Superman in Man of Steel was actually Colourful? Moving Pictures Notes 24 APR 2015

I didn’t really enjoy Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel to be quite honest. In fact, I haven’t really “loved” any of Snyder’s movies, probably because of his insistence of visual style over, I don’t know, acting/story/emotional depth. Harsh, and probably undeservedly so – after all, I’m no trained movie critic.

Anyway, not that any of the above has anything to do with what is about to follow mind you.

Definitely an interesting little project. Personally, I think more colour would be awesome, but even with that, it still wouldn’t have saved this dour, depressing, and not very Superman-spirited, Superman movie.

Thoughts?

The official DC Blog went and wrote up a full breakdown of the video, and I thought it worth saving here just in case they go ahead and lose it in the next site redesign (which always seems to happen).
