After 2004’s Superman Returns, DC Comics presents Man of Steel directed by Zack Snyder finally premiered last June 12, 2013 in Philippines just in time with the Philippines’ celebration of National Independence Day. I was supposed to watch in IMAX but sadly, I was at the office preparing documents for an upcoming bidding that I was going to attend on the next day. But of course, I am not going to miss it for the world so when Saturday came, will it be IMAX, 3D or 2D, I am going to watch it. I have been waiting for it ever since I saw its trailer in YouTube and the end of Smallville Season 10.
Man of Steel really intrigued many viewers from its trailer and some articles. The trailer appeared to be something darker and dramatic than the earlier Superman films. Not to mention that the new costume in the 2013 movie is literally dark blue and kind of chrome-ish but it is way cooler than the old costumes. One thing that is surprising in this movie is that, compared to all the previous films, viewers will never get to see Superman’s Earth nemesis, the bald villain Lex Luthor and the green Kryptonite to weaken the hero.
