Superman Is Sometimes Called “Big Blue” – In “Man Of Steel” It Was More Like “Big Gray”

I really liked Man of Steel as you can see in my review HERE. I thought it was a very adult, very interesting take on the Superman story that delivered a compelling film. I understand and agree with critiques that suggest the movie descended into “disaster-porn” in its third act. I am less taken by those that suggest Superman’s actions in the movie (especially in how he dealt with General Zod) were not consistent with a “hero,” but that’s a different conversation.

A critique with which I do agree is presented in the video below. It’s called “What If Man of Steel Was in Color?” and it’s a pretty compelling argument.

I have high hopes for Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice. I hope it looks kind of like this:
