Superman is in theaters once again. This time, Henry Cavill (Immortals, The Tudors) takes up the mantle of America’s Superhero against Michael Shannon’s (Take Shelter, Boardwalk Empire) General Zod in this summer’s blockbuster, Man of Steel. Like all geeks, there were opinions that had to be shared. So, a council was formed at the RevolutionSF RevNews, including Gary Mitchel, Bobby Nash (Earth Station One Network), Tegan Hendricks0n (Just Tegan), Shaun Rosado (Shauncastic) and myself, to address the strengths and weaknesses of the latest superhero film.
So once more in the RevNews Hall of Geedom, host Gary Mitchel assembles four of the greatest nerds created from the cosmic legends of the Internet! Bobby Nash! Jessa Phillips! Tegan Hendrickson! Shaun Rosado!
Together, in the first part of this episode, they will discuss what worked in Man of Steel; how it separates itself from the Donner movies; the coolness of Jedi-El; how Lois Lane is responsible for the destruction of Metropolis; Faora-Ul: Fully Clothed Badass; Superman: The InfoDump; Kryptioan facial & chest hair and more!
We had a lot to say about Man of Steel, so this is part 1 of 2. Click the links below to listen to in!
