In this video essay, I explore the ways in which Man of Steel presents a moral ideal through the character of Superman.
Unfortunately, they just couldn’t make this one work.
Snyder is able to create films that are truly triumphant.
Rewatching Batman v Superman was a great lesson for me in giving things a second chance. Just because something wasn’t for you at one point in your life doesn’t mean that will always be the case.
But in the end, props to Warner Bros. for going through with this. The Snyder family went through something that no one should have to go through. It’s simply fitting to see his film carried out to completion. This is a unique circumstance that is making lots of people very happy. I hope it doesn’t set a precedent for more movies or series to redone, but I really don’t think it will. It’s too singular of a movement. A movement that ultimately yielded exactly what it wanted.
