Among all the talk about Warner Bros. finally getting a shared universe going with its Batman vs. Superman film, a completely different superhero has been getting a lot of attention lately — the other licensed property in Warner’s “holy DC superhero trinity” — Wonder Woman.
Despite being one of the best known female superheroes in the world, Wonder Woman has been constantly passed over by Warner for a film, while Superman and Batman have gotten multiple reboots and sequels.

aaaahh this is such a great film!
I’m rewatching it and upon second viewing I’m really noticing all of the mythological influences on it.

"WHAT THE SHIT WAS THAT? DUDE!"
Max Landis (writer of Chronicle) on “Superman and superheroes and shit”
What do you think about what he says?
MAN OF STEEL SPOILERS
I agree with what he says about Superman killing, although he traditionally doesn’t kill I don’t have a problem with it because it means Earth is better off in the long run. As for the destruction, I think as long as Warner Bros. avoid it in future with this franchise it makes sense in a story sense. I’ll explain. This is Superman’s first proper ‘outing’ for want of a better word as a superhero- he’s done good and saved lives before but never as Superman and never against a villain as powerful as Zod. It would make sense that while he’s learning the ropes he makes mistakes in not taking the fight away from the city and not killing Zod sooner. Ultimately the core principle of the character is there- he wants to save people because he is a good man, which is probably why he holds off from killing Zod. In the long run I think the franchise could recover by showing Superman learning how to better save the world. Perhaps he’ll be less emotional about killing in future, leading to some (Batman?) believing he is going to far in the future? Idk, just an idea. I just hope they don’t build their entire franchise on destruction, but I guess the next film they bring out will determine that.
Damn, Man of Steel was so good yesterday! Great main character, great supporting cast (big up to Amy Adams and Russell Crowe!) and AMAZING villains! Zod and Faora were both awesome. I think this film has definitely reinvented Superman to a modern audience who may have previously found him a redundant character, and hopefully it’ll open up DC to the movie market again. Roll on the sequel!
Man of Steel Behind the Scenes
I think Superman is under-appreciated. People seem to dislike him because he is so powerful that he doesn’t seem to be in any kind of danger when fighting villains, so in that sense as a character he’s kind of pointless. I think really good writers can use how powerful he is as his weakness though. I like Supes. He represents ultimate human being, both physically but also morally. That leads him to make some big ethical decisions. He’s far from pointless.
Superman S-Shields through the ages!
