Superman: Man of Steel (June 2013) in General Chit Chat Posted June 21, 2013 Did it need charm and humour? I wasn't really interested in another Marvel superhero film, or another Superman Returns. I wanted an action film with aliens getting thrown through buildings. I wanted a live action Dragonball Z. But with just enough quality acting, a reasonable plot and a tight, modern origin story. Nailed it IMO. I didn't notice any shaky cam past the first scene with the Kryptonian council. Basically my thoughts on the subject. I didn't miss the humour and to be honest there was still a couple of ones in there, there was one right at the end which made me smile. I'm glad they choose this style for the film, I felt like Superman needed something like this on the big screen.
