GENERALS GATHERED IN THEIR MASSES
SO, some model we’ve never heard of is playing Wonder Woman in a film that neither needs nor deserves her and her kooky 50s assortment of tricks. We took to Twitter to gauge public opinion, and (as we suspected) everyone thought it was a dreadful idea.
Man Of Steel isn’t even cold in the ground yet, but we’ve got our first casting rumour.
Everybody knows Superman. Sometimes dismissed under the title of ‘The Big Blue Boy Scout’, he is the virtuous, infallible and virtually invincible symbol of American heroism; the superhero that begat all superheroes. Yet what’s often forgotten is that, despite possessing these traits, Superman is also something else – an alien, an ultimate example of the ‘other’. By focusing on the latter, director Zack Snyder lends interest to the former, providing a Superman whose otherworldliness serves only to make him more Earthly. It’s a strong starting point for the new franchise, but, as with the rest of mankind, this newly human Superman still has room for a little improvement.
