Man of Steel Promotional Image
Was feeling nostalgic… Who remembers when this image leaked??? It was a HUGE thing then… WB was so upset they had this image taken down from sites including Tumblr. They took down my post, too, which was annoying. But those times were fun, tho. We got excited with every little thing that came out of Man of Steel while it was on post-production… Awesome. Still my favorite MoS promotional pic. -A
god, i wish they’d left alone zack snyder’s original vision for justice league. i really, really wish they had. the snyder directed, untouched-by-whedon scenes were the ones with the most meaning and artistic merit and RELEVANCE TO PREVIOUS FILMS. I’M. SO UPSET.
LIKE CLARK’S RESURRECTION IN THE SHIP?! AN OBVIOUS PARALLEL TO LEX WITH ZOD’S BODY IN BVS????
but beyond the visual, this scene is lex luthor, this human, fathering a “kryptonian deformity,” an “abomination.”
in justice league, clark is submerged too, again for the intention of rebirth, while the photo of his HUMAN FATHER FLOATS BESIDE HIM.
Just because I need a little more positivity about the things that were actually good in Justice League
I do really like that when Clark comes back “confused” he’s able to take down the whole team, including Batman. Because Superman is really, ridiculously overpowered, and that’s an important part of his character that’s often forgotten. It’s not important because of macho reasons, as if being the most powerful makes him the best. It’s important because he’s insanely powerful but also, under normal circumstances, entirely humble about it, extremely gentle, and so, so, good.
And we saw that in Man of Steel, when Clark stops himself from fighting back against the people who bully him. We saw it in Batman v Superman, when he calmly walks into the senate hearing and carefully opens the gate. We’ve been seeing him hold himself back and treat the world with kid gloves in all kinds of ways in the last two movies.
So it’s good to have a reminder occasionally of just how powerful he really his, so that we better appreciate his restraint.
Alfred and Martha vanish into the kitchens for their annual passive aggressive bake off/complain about their loved ones tendencies to get injured, time
No one knows for sure who thrown the first forkful of greenbeans
Damian says it was Tim
Tim says it was Damian
Whoever started it, the food fight escalates quickly.
It’s less of a food fight and more of a food war
Alliances are made. The teams are Tim and Kon, Damian and Jon, Jason and Dick, and Cassandra and Kara.
Barbra and Steph were spending it with their father and mother, respectfully, but promised to stop by later and say hi to the Kent’s.
Clark, bless his heart, attempts to stop the fight and gets a face full of mashed potatoes for his trouble
Lois and Bruce, being the smart ones, make a tactical retreat (we didn’t run away, Clark, we are simply able to recognize a lost cause when we see one. Unlike you.) to the wine cellar, where they break out the good stuff. They feel they deserve it.
In the confusion, Selina manages to ninja her way into the dinning room and make off with all the pumpkin pies.
The food fight is halted by Penguin attempting to take over city hall
Imagine his surprise when he is stopped by not just the bats, but several aliens, all of whom are in bad moods and, is that a roll on the end of Robin’s katana?
The roll does not make the sword any less sharp, as Penguin’s goons discover
The moods of the two superhero family’s does not improve upon arriving back at the Manor and finding out they will be expected to clean up the mess they made. With out using their powers or gadgets.
Barbra later hacks the security cameras and sends footage of the food fight to all of the crime fighting community.
Thank goodness the villains never got a hold of the footage. No one would be scared of Superman ever again if they saw him get hit by a spoonful of flying mashed potatoes.
There seems to be three types of people in the DCEU Justice League:
As Barry points out, he and Victor are the accidents. They were ordinary people until their powers were shoved on them and they still struggle to get a handle on their abilities and how to use them.
Clark and Arthur are the outcasts. Both are the product of two worlds, with Arthur never feeling completely at home in either one, and with Clark being feared and rejected by the world that he ultimately loves and calls home.
Diana and Bruce are the old souls. They have both played the role of the “hero” and lost someone they loved in the process: Steve Trevor in Diana’s case and Jason Todd in Bruce’s. Both had, for a time, given up on the notion of heroism and by the time the movie starts, have only fairly recently decided that maybe they can still do some good.
