Batman to be taken in interesting new 'dark and gritty' direction
Zack Snyder has released a first look at Ben Affleck as an all-new 'dark and brooding' Batman for Man Of Steel follow-up, Batman Vs. Superman. Until now, of course, the character has always been a fun and playful superhero, but this seems to be a bold new take on Batman. You can almost see him visibly thinking "Awww, man. My parents got killed. FUCK."

Lessons learned from The Superman Project
I've spent the last two years obsessively dodging any and all promotions of Man Of Steel, purely so I could see a blockbuster untainted by trailers, posters and news stories. Now, having seen - and enjoyed - Man Of Steel - I ask the question: what have I learned? How have I grown? And why did I start doing this again? Here are my findings.

Review: Man Of Steel

Man Of Steel
Wow. That was my first reaction upon exiting Man Of Steel. Not necessarily 'Wow' in the sense that I had been overly impressed, but 'Wow' like I had been totally exhausted by the experience and felt so light-headed my brain couldn't quite process words with more than one syllable. Now I've had time for my synapses to cool, I can downgrade 'Wow' to 'Huh': though Man Of Steel is epic in the truest sense of the word, it pummels you so hard with its epicness that you don't have the time or the spatial awareness to notice its flaws. Maybe it's the fact I saw it cold, purposefully not having watched any trailers or promotional material beforehand, but flying blind made for an interesting experience – and dare I say, I perhaps enjoyed it more than others might due to that same lack of preconceptions.
