Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel Gets Its First TV Spot


Part of me is hoping this slow, creeping promotion of Man of Steel is an indication it will blow us all away when it finally hits theaters. *crosses fingers*

    Hopefully we get a big ole’ media blitz soon. There hasn’t been a lot available so far.

    I’m looking forward to this movie, but ever since I saw that movie where a strand of Superman’s hair was on exhibit in a museum–which had something like a 300 lbs medicine ball tied to one end of it to show the strength of his hair–I had to wonder… what, then, does he use to shave his beard and cut his hair? Wire cutters, maybe? Does the blade of the razor or clippers have to be dusted with Kryptonite?

    Shoots his own lasers at a mirror.

    Strange… isn’t that from the soundtrack of Elisabeth – The Golden Age and some other movie? Yes, yes it is.
    And now I picture Superman on a coast, watching the spanish armada sink. Geez, they could have used some money for original music.

    They did that in an episode of Superman: The Animated Series. But then in the director’s commentary, the makers were like, “Ugh! No! Why did we do that? He doesn’t have laser beams, he has heat vision! It shouldn’t reflect off the mirror.” So the mystery remains.

    Superman has had a beard multiple times in the comics … and he’s been shown to shave by using his heat vision. He’ll either reflect it from a mirror, or from a piece of Kryptonian metal from his space ship.

    Well, if you go by the theory Grant Morrison put forth in Action Comics (i.e. if his eyes are capable of emitting x-ray radiation that lets him see through things, couldn’t he emit the whole light spectrum?), he could well be capable of making lasers. He just chooses not too because of the danger or can’t do it in a fight because of the focus involved. So he can do it in a controlled setting (i.e. his bathroom) but he couldn’t do it in the heat of battle.
