The latest trailer for Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, Man of Steel, debuted recently, and despite being thrilled that there were no shots of Kryptonite islands or children throwing pianos, we're beginning to notice a disturbing trend with each new preview -- every single character in the movie seems to be a massive shithead.
4Superman's Father Sends His Son to Earth to Become Either a Ruler or an Outcast
Superman's real father, Russell Crowe, is told by his wife that their son will be seen as an "outcast" on Earth. Russell Crowe disagrees, retorting, "He'll be a God to them," and then he launches Superman into the infinite blackness of the universe. That's it. That's the plan. Supes will either be ostracized by an entire race of people and forced to live alone on the frontier like the subject of an ATF training video or use his superior abilities to enslave an entire planet. No middle ground, no back-up planet, no relatives living on some fringe moon colony they could send him to -- the important thing here is shooting your baby into space. Let the infant demigod and the unsuspecting world you unleash him upon figure out the rest of that bullshit.
"Roll the dice, pussy."
