TO THE HASHI: Winner, Bizzaro Superman.
Many die-hard fans of the source material, the easiest of them to please, they’ll praise anything with their favorite characters in it. But if not the average moviegoer than the astute cinophile in the disguise of one will want for something more than pretty spectacle. We got that with the trailers, they’ll say. Give us substance in exchange for our dollars. Chris Terrio’s script shows signs of an effort in that regard, as well as Snyder’s epic direction style and Larry Fong’s beautiful cinematography to compliment it. They brought out much substance in the visual presentation, texturing the film with a look and feel worth every penny of the IMAX inflation. Alas, the sum result of their efforts can be described as having been, narratively, in vain – the painful variety.

No George Miller For MAN OF STEEL 2
Den Of Geek is reporting that Man Of Steel 2 has been put on “permanent hold”, which is a bit of a shock considering it was only last week that “The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened?” helmer Jon Schnepp announced that Mad Max: Fury Road helmer George Miller was up to direct the film. Whatever it means, it’s not to suggest that the film won’t happen, especially since there’s been a clear interest in making one now that Warner Bros. is well under way with its DC cinematic universe in addition to a potential Batman trilogy starring and directed by Ben Affleck.
Miller himself was supposed to direct DC movie, Justice League back in 2008 as his name was one of several candidates listed, including Lana and Andy Wachowski. His current business also includes adding to the desolate universe of his latest blockbuster success, Mad Max, while it is being said that Miller is, in fact, in talks to direct a DC film in which he will hopefully get the studio to agree to his terms, and at least now we know that in its current state, Man Of Steel 2 isn’t that film…although it would be oh so nice.
The next five years of DC cinematic fanfare will be increasingly interesting while Man Of Steel helmer Zack Snyder is groomed to direct Justice League in two parts for releases in 2017 and 2019 after next year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Stay tuned for further details.

TO THE HASHI: What The Hell Was So Wrong With Man of Steel?!
Their fight scene and Jor-el’s death were charged with drama, despite happening within the opening minutes of the movie. It was Cain and Abel battling over ideals. One noble and optimistic, the other self-righteous and admittedly cruel. We are familiar with the underlying archetype presented, and note that the ethos of it is faithful to the spirit of DC comics’ universal distinction; while Marvel comics, and likewise their films, draw from everyman drama, DC is different in that their characters are drawn from a pool of grand and operatic archetypical structures. So the exchange between Jor-el and Zod is built on this definitive foundation.

If this film turns out to be better than expected, there’s no way I’m passing this up.
FILMS, FAMILY AND SUCCESS: A Word With Actor And Stuntman, SHAWN BERNAL
Shawn Bernal: To make it plain and simple, I have always loved martial arts. To perform martial arts stunts on screen was an unrealistic dream of mine to my family in a conservative Filipino household. So it was all about education, career, and money. After finishing school and working in an office as a career, I made my family happy by achieving that. Now that that’s done, I felt it was time to make myself happy by doing what I loved doing.
