So now we have been given to very first tiny teaser trailer for the very much anticipated new SUPERMAN movie, MAN OF STEEL which is directed by ZACK SNYDER, he of WATCHMEN, 300 and recently SUCKERPUNCH. Yes, that’s right there is continual mixed opinion about this choice of director for such a huge and legendary iconic hero.

Remembering how the previous SUPERMAN movie floundered so badly, practically ignored on release, though looking back it is not all bad quite honestly, but something really impressive in necessary for this next one, especially in times when the MARVEL studios are embarrassing DC on a regular basis which stunning movies like IRON MAN, THOR and AVENGERS.

Even now that THE DARK KNIGHT RISES has arrived, a new version of SUPERMAN on the big screen is going to have to be very similar to that or just at least on the same impressive level.

We all know that SNYDER’S power is in producing really amazing visually astounding movies, but then they can regularly lack very much in the writing and scripting, hollow narratives and flat characters, again seen in the sadly thin SUCKERPUNCH film.

Judging by this very brief new MAN OF STEEL teaser, it seems that producer CHRISTOPHER NOLAN-yes one director of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES- might well hopefully be guiding and nudging SNYDER in a better way of working, putting some restraint and thought into his work besides huge exploding images and sensational super-pumped up characters lacking in depth.

With a currently sad output in films for DC besides BATMAN, alongside the might and triumphant repeated success of MARVEL’S very many huge box-office smashing movies, DC need to tackle their other well known legend icon this time, and gradually build up to the possibility of just maybe producing a JUSTICE LEAGUE movie in future.

Just to add, I was one of the few who did find GREEN LANTERN  a cool, enjoyable movie, and it would be nice to see a sequel perhaps.

Come on DC, give us a mighty man of Krypton…
