I just saw the first trailer for it and have to agree with a lot of people in that it’s literally “What if Superman was a horror story”. I’m just wondering how exactly Sony can do that. It looks like it follows Supe’s origin just a little too close for my liking. I mean, you’ve got the alien baby adopted by a farmer couple that couldn’t have one of their own, the symbol that looks a bit too Kryptonian (though that could just be because Kryptonian doesn’t look all that special), Heat Vision, Flight, and Super Speed. They even named the kid Brandon, which I can’t help but feel is a nod to Roth. All they’re missing was the name of the boy’s homeplanet and a chunk of said planet weakening him (or if this is more of an Ultraman situation, since the kid was only shown using powers at night, powering him up).
What are your thoughts?
