Never have I seen a movie where people either hated or loved a movie as strongly as this one. I don't really know anyone who even just "liked" the movie. I loved it tho. I'm amazed at the backlash I hear from it.

The whole "murder" scene reminded me of Chronicle where Matt had to reluctantly kill Andrew who was stronger and wanted to die. If Matt had not killed Andrew, Andrew would have killed millions. No matter how immoral the killing, it was the only logical outcome.

I can't wait until this comes out. I'm getting the Blu-Ray from Wal-Mart because I got my Early Screening Tickets from them and decided to get the Blu-Ray, as well. It came with a pretty sweet hologram magnet that I have on my refrigerator. I'm tempted to get the Limited Edition, actually. That would look awesome on top of my DC Comics Bookshelf.

@freak_spawn: your not a real fan if you think this sucked.

He isn't a real fan because he has an opinion? I love this movie but this is such a stupid mentality. Who are you to tell somebody if they're a true Superman fan? If somebody owns tons of Superman comics/figures/shirts/etc but doesn't like one movie they're not a real fan?

He also technically killed doomsday to save metropolis. Kind of the same scenario in man of steel when he killed Zod. So everyone stop complaining the movie was really good.

@theincrediblesuperhulk8642: avengers had alot of damage also, alot of people died also, they just add gloss over the actual damage instead of showing how it would really look like if it were to happen. Man of steel showed us that without trying to cover up the damage.

this. Basically, they pulled no punches in Superman, no pun intended. People forget that The Avengers was also Disney, hence the gloss amidst the carnage and invasion. They really didn't pull any punches again, in Superman, and said they wanted to do a realistic take, what would happen if a super powerfull invading force wanted to do what they did, and yeah, Superman stopped them, just not in a Disney way, where everything is nice and sweet and works out perfect, cause that's what happens when you don't challenge the character(s) and instead wrap everything up nice and easy with a ribbon at the end!

@lordraiden: You mean if an Alien Army really were to invade us they wouldn't just shoot up abandoned cars and miss whenever they fired at a human?

You mean people die in War?

Eh, I think I've gone digital entirely with films now. Nice package but just do not have the room for such things anymore.

@guardian_of_gravity: You're absolutely correct! I think people like to forget this fact (or they simply don't have a clue)

You all do realize that Superman killed Zod in the comics and Superman II right?

And in Superman 2 he actually had a choice since they were all depowered lol.

Cavill's had no choice and you could see that he didn't wanna do it. Reeve's casually does it and is happy. :)

Will there be an extended cut?

No he didnt. Thats a crazy interpretation given the context and tone of that film. Who actually watched that film, as the Superman theme triumphantly swelling and seriously thought that Superman just threw a powerless, middle aged man to his death? Followed quickly by a mentally handicapped guy suffering the same fate and topped off by Lois Lane murdering another chick - all played for laughs. Thats insane.

I mean there were scenes shown in the TV version which made the obvious even more clearcut by showing police cars (in the Arctic) to take away the Kryptonians but anyone who claims with a straight face that Superman murdered Zod in Superman II in order to defend MOS is being intellectually dishonest.

@fifthchild: They didn't die only in the directors, and thus *noncanon* cut. Canonically they fell to their deaths and died without ever being mentioned again.

And I was complaining about the decision to murder the Kryptonians in Superman II *long* before MOS was a word on anyone's lips.

No offence intended here but to me thats absurd.

First the obvious: We dont see them die at all in the theatrical cut. So they didnt in fact die in the theatrical version - thats just an interpretation. An interpretation that the extra footage reveals was (quite obviously IMO) not the film-maker's intention.

Speaking from a less legalistic, more personal perspective the idea that someone watched that scene and thought "Wow Supes just iced that guy!" blows my mind. Whats next? Do we think that trucker who Superman spun round in his seat at superspeed had his brain liquefied and spent the rest of his life as an invalid?

Theres a reason a generation of parents were happy to take their families to see the Reeve movies (the first 2 at least - i dont think anyone was happy about the others) and people arent necessarily thrilled about taking young kids to see a movie that climaxes with Superman snapping a guys neck with his bare hands. Theres a reason Goyer/Snyder felt they had to (wrongly IMO) distance Superman from his earlier "goody-goody" versions by having him kill. Its not because the Reeves version of the character that the general public was most familiar with was some unbalanced psychopath.

One of the few movies I went to go see in theaters. I also dont really like buying movies with commentary unless the people are funny (south park or WKUK come to mind) but I heard theres like an hour more of footage and I guess maybe I can tolerate the non funny crew's talking if they talk about the sequel.
