Media Services at the Movies: Man of Steel

The summer blockbuster season is here! “Media Services at the Movies” will look at what big movie is coming out this week, then offer a few movies like it from our collection.

Seven years have passed since the last Superman film – 33 years since arguably the last good Superman film. We didn’t expect them to get it right this time. Not with a darker tone, and not with the director of 300 in charge. But here’s the thing: Man of Steel looks great. Dark superhero movies may be falling out of vogue, but producer Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder’s unique, mature take on Superman may have finally nailed down the most intriguing and exciting aspects of the character’s story. Henry Cavill might go down at the definitive Superman, which might lead to a lucrative new franchise for Warner Bros.

Superman is one of the cornerstone franchises of DC Comics. We’ve already hawked for Marvel movies with Iron Man 3, so let’s turn an eye to the DC and Zack Snyder films in our collection…
