With all the talk of upcoming Comic-Con 2012, I’ve been going back and forth over being disgusted for not being able to go yet. another. year. and over being obsessed with finding the latest photos from Man of Steel (2013).
My Superman obsession being no secret, I’ve mentioned before how much this movie excites and scares me at the same time.
I really, really, REALLY need a good action-packed father-of-all-superheroes Superman flick that demonstrates the awesome power of the ultimate Man of Steel juxtaposed beside the mild-manneredness of (but still awesome in his own right) Clark Kent, and with better special effects than the the 1980s offered. But I really, really, REALLY am not sure this is going to be it.
Though trying to reign in my own high-flying hopes, I can’t help but get sucked in to looking at all the photos on the net. Then I catch myself screaming at the laptop screen things like …
“Why does he have facial hair?!”
Superman doesn’t have facial hair (except in Kingdom Come when he’s been ‘retired’ for 10 years)!
“Oh, that one’s actually not too bad.”
And then more to myself:
“Course it might just remind me a bit of Smallville.”
“What is that supposed to be?”
Seriously, is it a cape or a bed sheet? He’ll be lucky to not trip over it.
“Gosh, he’s just so short!”
I mean, yeah, he’s got some pecs but he just looks so … stubby.
“Wait, are we losing the red outer-underwear or not?”
And then perhaps the worst of all:
“THAT is not Clark Kent!”
And, now, the photos that inspired all this psychosis:
Wait, how’d that last one get in here? 😉
