Put the Hero Back in the Superhero: Max Landis Talks ‘Man of Steel’

Man of Steel has now been out for over a week, and did pretty well at the box office. This pretty much ensures not only a sequel from Zack Snyder and his crew, but the beginning of a DC Cinematic Universe along the same lines as Marvel’s highly successful MCU. This is all very exciting, but before we get ahead of ourselves, it’s important to take a look at the beginning of the DCCU.

Max Landis Talks Man of SteelWhere Iron Man hit it out of the park and wowed audiences across the world while setting the foundation of the MCU, Man of Steel has divided the movie going crowd for a number of reasons. The controversial ending, massive body count and destruction of a few cities has opened up the fiery gates of internet commentators from all walks of life. Whether you are a fan of the comics, the movies, or have never heard of this Superguy or whatever he’s called, chances are you have your own opinion of Man of Steel.

Which brings us to Max Landis. Landis, son of John Landis and the writer of Chronicle (one of the best superhero films of the last few years), has never been shy about his opinions of Superman. If you haven’t seen his take on the Death and Return of Superman, then you aren’t using the internet correctly. Recently, Landis shared his take on Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, and provides an in-depth look at the character of Superman and his issues with not only Man of Steel, but the current state of superhero movies in general. It’s a fantastic video that a lot of us here at Grizzly Bomb definitely agree with. Why am I still talking? Check out the video below:
