Let’s just get this out of the way… I love super heroes. I do. Here’s proof.
Every great super hero is great because they balance the idea of what can be and the realism of what is. I think that’s why it is so hard to portray heroes in film. If we find the hero to be too relatable, then they are common. If we find them to be too ideal, then they are too foreign. That’s why Superman is probably the hardest hero to portray of all of them.
He seems blessed with the ability to anything. What cold make him vulnerable?
I’m looking to going to the theater this weekend to find out. If you’ve seen it, I’d love to hear what you thought – no spoilers, please.
