Top 5 ways to fix SupermanThe current cinematic version of Superman is badly flawed, but he doesn't have to be. Here's how to turn around the man of steel.
These are the top five ways to fix Superman on film. This is Superman right now. It shouldn't be. Here are five ways to make Superman so much better, you might even like him on film. At number five, vibrate. Sure, let's believe a world where a man from outer space So happens to look like a human being and has nearly limitless powers, due to the yellow sun. But are you telling me that no one in the world has taken a clear picture of Superman and figured out who he is? Between facial recognition tech and everyone having a camera in their phone, his secret identity should be blown by now So let's use a trick used by Superman in the comics that a certain Scarlett [UNKNOWN] uses frequently on TV. Vibrate slightly. That would mean every image of Superman is blurry. That would protect Clark and his family. And speaking of Clark, number 4, make Clark Kent distinctly different from Superman. In the current movie universe, this is Superman And this is Clark Kent this man is the size of a brick wall. The method of handling the Clark Superman thing was well explored by Christphore Reid. Clark is so manilla he does not stand out. Clark in the modern movies is kind of a jerk to his boss which should get him noticed a bit. And number this is Smarten Up. The current superman in movies might be the dumbest version ever. I'm talking about his lack of intelligence. He's not the smartest character in comics, but he should be able to put together a few thoughts that, at any given time, that could avoid all kinds of messes in Batman vs. Superman Dawn of Justice. Spoiler upcoming, is there any reason he couldn't have one of his peers use that kryptonite spear, instead of deciding to do it himself? That's just one instance of super stupidity. And number two cheer up, no one really trust superman in the movies why I don't know, may be smile more, how about talking more superman is dower for having [UNKNOWN] after he comes back from the dead. And number one let him be good, what does superman stand for, what's his goals, great question two movies, what exactly is the core of superman. The Captain America movies showed you you can have a character who stands for truth and justice, without being completely boring. And if you think I have a Marvel bias, I don't. The 1978 Superman film also managed to do the same thing. If the goal is to do the storyline from Injustice, where Superman becomes an evil dictator, maybe the audience would be more invested in him, if he was a true good guy before turning evil. No one watches this part so I'd just like to say I was not a Superman fan, until I read the Man of Steel mini-series by John Byrne. It showed why the character could be relevant and interesting, go read it if you get a chance. Anyway, I'm Iyaz Akhtar and I'll see you online. [MUSIC]
