Q:Do you think Diana would have liked Man of Steel?
Tricky question since this is a hypothetical one. :)
No movie is perfect and MOS has its flaws.
We might guess she would be very happy to see Superman again on screen and an attempt to update the character. Seriously, as much as we all love Reeve, time to move on from that version. She definitely would approve of Henry Cavill. I mean, which woman wouldn’t? ;)
Now, Diana is a very proactive individual, proud of her gifts and she chose to use them to help better the world as soon as she could leave her island. I suspect she might be wondering why Clark hid and waited to come out at 33. Had to be forced. As opposed to what he does in comics, which is use his gifts earlier for the greater good as a symbol of hope.
Diana would definitely have empathy for Clark’s dilemma when it came to dealing with Zod. She herself had to do something similar to protect Clark himself and innocent lives from Max Lord.
I do think Diana would hope after Clark made out with Lois in the ruins, he got to work helping the city get back on its feet.The aftermath in this movie was important but was regrettably not shown. It was as if Metropolis was built in a day and seem a rather flippant way in treating the subject matter because the well being of people is a thing that normally matter to heroes like Superman. While we get this movie was about Clark learning the hard way who he would become, we do think a couple of minutes showing Superman rebuilding would have been a great touch.
NB: Diana regrets she was not there to help him with Faora. Luckily in the Superman/Wonder Woman comic, she’ll get her chance. :)
Zack Snyder’s upcoming project Batman vs. Superman may be taking its inspiration from the popular 1996 DC Comics mini-series Kingdom Come. Ever…
So new rumor…a certain best selling, award winning graphic novel could be used as inspiration for the MOS sequel.Elements could be used from it for the battle between Batman and Superman to kick start their shared universe.
Anyone interested in the storyline for Kingdom Come can check it out it here.http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Kingdom_Come
Or better yet. Buy the graphic novel. It is worth it. http://www.dccomics.com/graphic-novels/kingdom-come-new-edition
Can be bought via Amazon or found in many comicshops or books stores that stock Graphic novels.
As I said. No ordinary mortal.
No. Perhaps he is not.

Zack Snyder Confirms That Lex Luthor Is In The Man Of Steel Sequel, Reveals First Tiny Detail - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
It’s not much, certainly not in terms of word count, but Zack Snyder is currently taking part in a live fan event webcast for Man of Steel and let slip the following tiny tease.
Is Warner Bros. closer to finding the woman who could play Wonder Woman in the untitled “Batman-Superman” pic? Sources tell Variety that “Fast and Furious” actress Gal Gadot, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation…
These ladies, while all talented and quite lovely, for our part don’t feel like Wonder Woman candidates. They are way too svelte and do not have the physicality or attitude to be our Amazon Warrior Princess.
Along with Olga Kurylenko, this casting feels very much like a Talia than Diana. And we recall one of the casting rumor was that the lady in mind should be able to go toe to toe with Batman. Does that sound like Wonder Woman to you?
Unless they plan to weaken Diana, who was created to be able to go toe to toe with a Kryptonian. It would be quite a shame if we finally get Wonder Woman on screen and she is not the kickass powerhouse she is supposed to be. And shouldn’t Wonder Woman have some sort of proper back story first? If it is a tiny cameo well…maybe we can see it.
Also this Superman sequel…(is it a sequel?)…feels a bit cluttered with now not only Batman, but possibly Wonder Woman and Nightwing being rumored?
We sure hope WB know what they are doing.
Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder, Henry Cavill (Superman) and Amy Adams (Lois Lane) will be participating in a special fan Q&A this Saturday, November 9th at 9am PT/12pm ET. The Q&A will be hosted by Kevin Smith so you know things will be…
You can tweet questions with #AskManOfSteel maybe they might answer.
So maybe someone can ask about that Wondy rumor. ;)
