Superhero Round Up: Matthew Vaughn & Brett Ratner Cat Fight, Superman Blu-Ray Anthology Will Include Deleted Back to Krypton Scene From Superman Returns, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Will Look Amazing Says DP
Super Hero Round Up? All the little Superhero movie bits that you should know about, but just don’t make a full post on their own.
Matthew Vaughan & Brett Ratner: Cat Fight!
In one corner of the sandbox, we have Matthew Vaughn, director of X-Men: First Class (2011). Aaaand, on the other, we have Brett Ratner, director of X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). Vaughn had been brandishing his claws at Ratner at every turn, claiming that he could’ve done a better job with X-Men: The Last Stand had he directed it as was originally planned. In a counter strike, Ratner so-very-subtly reminded the world that his work had the greatest success, financially, of all the other X-Men movies (even though it got mauled by anybody who knows anything). This fight could continue for quite some time; neither contender has been able to land just a single hit. But, y’know, fighting in different directions can do that.
So, hey… whose balls are bigger?
MORE AFTER THE JUMP
Tomorrow, June the 7th, will see the release of the Superman: The Motion Picture Anthology 8-disc Blu-Ray set in the USA.
The 8-disc release will include Superman-The Movie: Original Theatrical, Superman-The Movie: Expanded Edition, Superman II: Original Theatrical, Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut, Superman III: Original Theatrical, Superman IV-The Quest for Peace: Original Theatrical and Superman Returns: Original Theatrical – all for the first time with DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio.
Included in the set are deleted scenes from each of the movies. CapedWonder.com has released some screenshots of what appear to be the infamous $10 million “Back to Krypton” scene that was deleted from the theatrical release of Superman Returns.
The fan video below will give you a good idea of how the actual scene will roll:
The Amazing Marc Webb
This is a frame from the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie, directed by Marc Webb. You may remember his work on such films as (500) Days of Summer and music videos like “Move Along” by The All-American Rejects. If you don’t, you need to get off your ass right the fuck now and check out some of his work; the man is talented. (No, I’m not biased at all.)
According to cinematographer John Schwartzman, Webb’s work on the Spidey film:
(…) is the best looking footage I have ever shot… these are the best images I have ever seen. No, really… this is the best footage I have ever seen from any camera. Ever.
Whether or not it’s the best camera work in the history of ever, we can be confident that this does not include 9736163 minutes of an emo-fied, jazz dancing, Peter Parker. And in that case… it’s already won.
Go find Marc Webb work. Right. Now.
