Granted this is just a short with an action focus, very different from a feature, but this is such an intense slap in the face of the panicky, reactionary DC and Warner Bros. execs who insist a Wonder Woman movie would be a risky, hugely challenging endeavor.
By Andy KhouriThe Kryptonian countdown clock running on I Will Find Him hit zero Tuesday night and revealed a new theatrical trailer for Man of Steel. Promoting the new Zack Snyder film based on the DC Comics superhero created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the clip answers the dour tone of the earlier presentations with some rousing, heroic business. Included are some tantalizing action shots and an exchange between Lois Lane and Superman that for many skeptical ComicsAlliance readers will earn the film more than the benefit of the doubt.
It is an astoundingly well-cut together trailer.
But they still won’t call him Superman.
I really hope they pay that off.
More promising than what they’ve shown before, and that three or four seconds of Amy Adams seems promising…
I remember when I posted that Justice League in Bustiers thing that got reblogged everywhere I put it up in tandem with a second doodle of Wonder Woman in a riff on the the Naked Batman pose that said something like “Of course that is not to say a lack or abundance of clothes is necessarily what makes a character look powerful”
But of course since this got tens of thousands of reblogs;
And this got like a hundred:
I got to enjoy a who onslaught of angry letters about how it’s not the clothes that make someone look tough.
And that’s how I learned Tumblr is the perfect medium for losing half of a joke in the shuffle.
Huh. I was one of the ones who never saw the other half — I wasn’t following Coelasquid at the time — and wow, that second picture is fierce. I love it. Makes me want to draw powerful nude ladies.
But Shades you always want to draw powerful nude ladies.
No one will ever convince me that a woman wearing a skintight catsuit zipped down to her navel is any sexier than these two were together in this scene.
Sometimes, sexiness between men and women isn’t defined by the male gaze. And this never was.
That third one. Their faces - it’s perfect.
Best Superman, best Lois. Man of Steel has pretty big boots to fill.
