You know, waiting the next 2 months for Superman/Batman Apocalypse to come out is going to stink. I want to see it now.
Apparently there is a 'first look' special about the movie on the Batman:Red Hood DVD which just came out which at least gives a little sneak peek at the film. During this piece, storyboard images of the movie are shown and some of the actors and creators are interviewed.
While I haven't had the luxury of seeing it yet, good friend Gene forwarded me some images to whet my appetite even more. And, of course, I have to give some commentary.
Sadly, it looks as though we are going to see a naked Kara parade around Gotham City. This was one of the things from the story that I hoped would be left out of the movie. It doesn't add much to the story and therefore feels gratuitous.
This looks like a scene from the batcave where Superman first learns that Kara is his cousin.While just the storyboard pic, I like how close the cousins seem to be here.
In a scene not in the original comic, Clark takes Kara out on a shopping trip.
I am torn about this idea and will need to see how it plays out. I suppose it has some comic potential. I just don't want Supergirl to come across as some vapid mall rat.
I am not a big fan of the 'corrupted Supergirl' or her Female Fury-like garb. Still, this picture of an enraged Supergirl looks pretty cool, even if she is under Darkseid's control and fighting Superman.
This image looks almost directly lifted from one of Michael Turner's panel at the end of the comic story.
It is going to very cool to see Supergirl in costume at the end of the movie. I hope it will lead to other animated appearances for her.
The most intriguing storyboard images for me are of Supergirl's origins, being rocketed away by Zor-El and Alura. This scene was not in the original comic arc. You may recall there, Supergirl didn't remember much of her origins. She barely remembers Alura's name. So I will be interested to see where this scene gets fit into the movie. And exactly which of her origins are they going to use ... is it going to be the 'rocketed from Krypton to take care of Kal-El' or the 'rocketed from Argo City after Krypton explodes'?
But seeing Alura on screen? Fantastic.
September 28th can't get here fast enough! Thanks again to Gene for sending the images to me!
