The 2012 battle for box office sale receipts is only half way over and yet most were speculating must see films of 2013 at last week's San Diego Comic Con. One such was Man of Steel, another effort by Warner Brothers and DC Comics to reboot their Superman franchise. Though director Bryan Singer's more elaborated Superman Returns was a popular retelling amongst movie critics. The 2006 film never truly won over die-hard fans. Those involve in this latest incarnation are hoping for a more popular response. First, similar to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, the term "Superman" got dropped from the movie title. Second, they hired director Zack Snyder, whose stylized CGI sequences in 300, Watchmen, and Sucker Punch have won rave followings. Already, you could see Snyder's influence on the film's visual style in the latest official poster for Comic Con - a fleeting glimpse of Superman literally in a suit of steel and Medieval chainmail. Zack Snyder's Man of Steel is set in theaters on June 14th, 2013.
