Batman V Superman Dawn Of Justice Review

We bring out the big guns for this one. Critically derided but a massive box office hit, where does the Upodcast team stand on Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice which sorta a sequel to Man Of Steel but also a set up for the forthcoming DC Justice League Universe.

Joined by @Bollybrit and @9e3k we keep it low on spoilers (until minute 45) but high on profanity.

During the episode we talk about a deleted scene, if you haven’t seen it yet, here it is:

Man Of Steel Upodcast Review and Criticism surrounding the movie

Maybe a bit late out of the gate but our geek hearts were still aching to talk about Zach Snyder’s Man Of Steel. Together with Paresh from the CurrySmugglers (check out their latest awesome episode by clicking here) and Sujoy AKA @9e3k we finally get to discuss this new version of the son of Krypton, after Bryan Singer’s failed attempt.

Although the movie has had a massive box office draw, there is talk of sequels, rebooting other DC properties to eventually come to a Justice League movie.

As most Snyder movies Man of Steel has been surrounded by quite a bit of criticism coming understandable as the character is one that we all have grown up with and are quite attached to.

So we specifically wanted to adress some of the major complaints about the movie and what we thought about them.

Hope you enjoy our Chat!

Man Of Steel Banner Posters

We received these beautiful Banner posters for Man Of Steel and I just had to share them.

Not much to say much else as I’m going officially not going to watch any promo material anymore until the movie comes out to remain spoiler free.

But these were just too awesome not to share.

 

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes “Man of Steel,” starring Henry Cavill (“Immortals,” TV’s “The Tudors”) in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, under the direction of Zack Snyder (“300,” “Watchmen”).

A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth.  As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do.  But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.

The film also stars four-time Oscar® nominee Amy Adams (“The Master”) as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne (“What’s Love Got to Do with It”) as her editor-in-chief, Perry White.  Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Oscar® nominee Diane Lane (“Unfaithful”) and Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves”).

Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon (“Revolutionary Road”), and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue (upcoming “The Seventh Son”).  Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Ayelet Zurer (“Angels and Demons”), and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”).

MAN OF STEEL will fly into cinemas on June 14, 2013

Man Of Steel Trailer is ZOMG!

Already my most anticipated movie of the year, this trailer has just left me speechless. Showing us much more of the action, visuals and leading man Cavill (literally).

Since the release is just around the corner, it’s fun to see that the movie is more than just a depressing look at ole Supes. We get to see more of Michael Shannon’s Zod, Amy Adam’s Lois Lane and Russel Crow’s Jor-EL.

Zach Snyder has always had a great eye for visuals but this trailer has really blown me away!

You probably dont need a synopsis but hey ho!

Green Lantern for Newbies

 

One of the major reasons it can be daunting for casual comic book fans to get back into comics or start reading a new character is just the ton of back story and continuity you have to be aware of. Honestly that´s one for the reasons I havent´t gotten back into the Flash even though I hear Geoff Jons has done some great work with the character.

Since there are more and more superhero movies releasing, viewers could end up with the same problem. Some know Superman, some know Batman, but not everyone might know the ins and outs of Green Lantern. So in anticipation of the upcoming movie release Warner Bros. has released a video  for Newbies. Giving us the low down of the characters, the superpowers and what makes the Lantern corp so special.

For fans there are quite a few shots from the movie nothing you havent already seen in the trailer but always interesting to see how they adapted a lof of the sometimes hard to grasp concept.

For the ladies (and some fellas) I guess there is quite a bit of Ryan Reynolds so still worth a watch. And better to be prepared when the nerdier part of the couple starts geeking out after dragginf you to the movies as the release of this much anticipated movie is just around the corner.
