- The comic
- The movie
Nice job @Bar-el. This was a fun event you planed, loved reading the books and watching the film!
But still a fun movie
Thanks for joining me for my first event everyone! We’re doing this again for the next segment and movie in May!
I’d be down for another select reading and WAL, if you did one @Bar-El.
I’ll send you my massive list of Wednesday listen alongs and watch alongs for May later
I like what you’re hinting at @Don-El. I’m excited for next month in the Supes club, especially since the book club is reading Superman smashes the Klan.
So it’s Tuesday that’s a relief
Yeah it’s going to be an interesting month
Yeah that scene comes to memory for sure
HOLY SCHMITT! It’s almost shot for shot,
Lol I thought that was pretty funny and I know they would watch Superman (1978) prior to starting ever Marvel project for inspiration so I bet they were studying all the DC successes!
325 responses, not bad for your first watch along!!
Too funny I kept wondering “where is Reaganfan where is Reagan fan…”
At the “Batman and Robin” WAL last night, I didn’t realize @MisterFreeze78 was @Reaganfan78 either.
He’s got to be loving this especially since he has 78 at the end of the new name
Here’s my late input:
I think the movie is a really good adaptation. I actually flipped through my collected edition as I watched, and some of the fight panels are recreated perfectly.
Luthor’s story gets quite a bit of necessary adjustment. I think the new intro and the expanded plot with Metallo work well, but as someone with a pretty good amount of Superman comic knowledge, I prefer the comics and how they build on early-2000s Superman stories. I definitely prefer the Superman/Lex fight in the comics, though I think there’s something nice about putting Batman in the composite spaceship.
I thought the animation style was great, but I don’t think anyone but McGuinness can pull off the composite spaceship.
Such a fun story in both formats. Thanks @Bar-El!
