Seeing the Signs 0
When Zack Synder referenced the Wayne Enterprise logo on the satellite last month it was not the only Easter egg to get Batman Fans going. Recently in an interview Snyder referred to another Batman reference that we are sure many Batman fans missed.
Remember when Zod was tearing the building apart with his heat vision, there was a “Be Calm and Call Batman” sign on the wall really small just big enough to see it. When you are watching it again at the theatres or at home take a closer look. You may have to stop the film to see it but it is there. It’s really cool to see Batman references in the movie and better yet that Zack Snyder allowed them to stay in the movie after the final cut of Man of Steel.
Is this a sign that Warner Bros. is setting up a universe where both Batman and Superman will exist together? We can certainly hope that will be the case.
Are Charles Roven and Zack Snyder Reading Your Comments? 0
In a recent interview with SFX Magazine, 'Man of Steel' producer, Charles Roven, mentioned that he's reading fan comments related to a potential Superman sequel. If this doesn't send chills down your spine, maybe the actual quote will:
"I think you can go anywhere beyond this film that the mind can take you, and certainly we’ve been reading online all of the various possibilities being laid out there by both fan sites and fans."
Roven doesn't say who "we" is, but WE can guess that he's talking about Zack Snyder. That means that Zack Snyder and Charles Roven want to know what you think about the direction of future films. Haven't commented yet? You might want to do that.
There were some other interesting bits in the SFX Magazine interview too. When asked about the upcoming 'Man of Steel' film, Roven confirmed that we can expect it to be as grounded as the previews make it seem.
"As he [Snyder] said, this is the most realistic film, even though it’s about a superhero, that he’s ever shot. His whole style, everything that we did, was designed to bring that to the fore."
You can expect less of a fantastical movie and more of a look into the actual life of Superman. This movie isn't going to be of the usual superhero sort with the fresh spin that Snyder is putting on it – and that’s going to be a great thing.
We're excited to see this film - and to see whether or not Roven and Snyder pick up any of our comments (or YOUR comments) and run with them the next time around! Got any fresh ideas? Make sure to let your voice be heard!
