Kara (a.k.a. Supergirl) was taken in by the Danvers family when she arrived from Krypton. After years of hiding her powers and working as the assistant to media mogul Cat Grant, Kara embraces her amazing powers when someone she loves is in danger. Now, at 24, she’s on her journey to heroism while still navigating the waters of life as a twenty-something.
Fast forward to 1:55 to just hear about Henry’s reaction to the Batman v Superman trailer.
VideoLab attempts to turn back time and restore the natural color & brightness in shots from DC’s Man of Steel. Turns out there was a beautiful Zack Snyder movie hiding underneath the bleak coloring.
Would Man of Steel have been more successful at the box office if it wasn’t colored like Schindler’s List? What do you think?

PRODUCTION NOTE: We’re big fans of both Superman and the film Man of Steel. That’s why this was a fun project. But Superman isn’t just a brand. He’s a worldwide icon that has lasted 77 years. When you make a Superman movie, and not every kid walking out of the theater wishes they were Superman… you’ve done something wrong. We’re simply asking questions.
WORKFLOW: (For the curious) The results we achieved are obviously a bit oversaturated and contain contrast artifacts. Since our source footage already contained severe color-grading decisions, it was far from optimal and, at best, this is an approximation. If the raw footage had been colored in a more natural and pleasing manner, it would actually look SIGNIFICANTLY better than what you see here.
Synthetic Aperture’s Color Finesse and some color exclusion adjustments did most of the heavy lifting in our color correction and re-grade, but each clip required a cocktail of secondary corrections.
We did, in fact, put too much green in the savanna, brought to our attention by eagle-eyed commenters.
The orange-tinted sky in the Metropolis aftermath shots and the purple girders behind Zod were actually there naturally. We believe Man of Steel had a more traditional-looking color grade until later in post-production when they decided to go darker. They should have followed their first instinct.
The fight you’ve been waiting for is finally here! And it’s… well over 30 years old??
Thanks to clever editing, old school fans can finally see what the new Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer would have been like if it starred the heroes they grew up with.
The highly anticipated trailer for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” leaked online Thursday for a few minute before YouTube quickly took it down.
Shot on a handheld camera or phone, the leaked trailer featured Portuguese subtitles and may have been taken in Brazil.
Warner Bros. was supposed to premiere the footage in Imax theaters on Monday.
The studio could not be reached for comment.
Featuring voice overs from Holly Hunter and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), among others, the footage centers mostly on Superman’s questionable place in the universe after “Man of Steel.”
The citizens of Metropolis, amid chants and police altercations, appear to turn against Henry Cavill’s character as a Superman statue has been spray painted “False God.”
“Devils don’t come from hell beneath us,” Luthor says. “They come from the sky.”
Before Ben Affleck is finally shown unmasked as Bruce Wayne, a man says off camera: “That’s how it starts, the feeling, the powerlessness, that turns good men…cruel.”
We then catch several brief glimpses of Batman, mostly in the dark, as the bat mobile later unleashes mayhem on the city before Batman and Superman meet face to face in the same footage screened at Comic-Con last year.
The trailer for the upcoming Warner Bros. film will be shown in select IMAX theaters at a 15-minute ticketed event, director Zack Snyder said Wednesday. Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck star in the film.
If you were Superman and you just so happen to find a lost GoPro camera, what would you do? Return it to the rightful owner, of course! But why not have some fun in the process:
The latest TV spot for Warner Bros. The LEGO Movie features even more footage from the film including the first footage of Channing Tatum's Superman talking. The movie will be released on on February 7th
