Man of Steel is currently soaring at the box office, but writer David S. Goyer is taking up the defensive for the film. Warner Bros for the film’s collateral damage scenarios.
Goyer recently told Bleeding Cool, ”One of the things we were hoping to depict is that Superman is not a god. We say he’s a god-like figure but he’s not omnipotent. Even in the comic books he cannot save everyone. I think people die [in Metropolis]. Clearly hundreds if not thousands of people have died while the gravity machines are going off. There were probably even people who died in Smallville.”
Although fans are complaining about the new take on Superman’s lack of super-ness. I think it’s a refreshing look at a more realistic version of who Clark Kent’s alter-ego really would be.
"When you’re dealing with a threat like this, there will be collateral damage. This is something that hadn’t been depicted in comic book films is what it would be like if these powerful figures did clash, if The Hulk and Thor fought, people would probably die. Particularly in this case where Zod and the Kryptonians really don’t care if people die. I think people died and I’m sure that upsets some people."
Fans clearly aren’t
tooupset because the new flick starring Henry Cavill is breaking box-office records across the board.
Henry himself is making quite a splash on fans in no small thanks to his face and well, that body…you know it’s true.
If you haven’t seen the film, get out there and watch! We want your feedback on the collateral damage; like or dislike.
