     I really wish they’d ease up a little on the colour grading these days.

    So, am I to understand there is no Clark Kent that wears glasses and becomes a reporter in this version?

    I like that they went with the transonic vapor cone effect, that’s very cool, a nice touch.

    Kinda surprised they were able to get Instragram to do the cinematography.

    I don’t care for the “high tech” fabric on the suit. More texture is not always better. The whole discussion about the “S” is addressed as if their solution was somehow original. They treated it the same way in the 1978 version, with each family having a crest.

    Maybe I’m just in a bad mood today, but I found the producer Deborah Snyder very annoying in this video. Everything she said just seemed like she doesn’t “get” superman. How do you make him cool to a modern audience? Really? Superman is cool, period. He’s bulletproof, can fly, etc. And then she used the word “proactive”. Ugh.

    “We will be proactively leveraging Superman’s ‘coolness’ assets to increase his Q-rating and social footprint among milennials and online thought leaders, entertainment-wise.”
