Wow! What’s with all the destruction! I would never allow such violence to happen!
I hope everyone has enjoyed the holiday, hopefully with those that care for, and vice versa.
It goes without saying that the course that Bryan Singer charted with the 2006 film, “Superman Returns” was an unsustainable one. It cost $270 million to produce and earned $391 million in worldwide box office receipts.
Box office aside, I get the feeling that ‘Returns’ would have been more successful it it also borrowed the humorous tone that Donner brought to his film.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case, which means that Singer’s Superman was tonally off compared to the material that inspired it.
The reason I titled this post ‘Remember When I Told You Not Leave During “Thor” Credits?’ is because I knew that there was an added scene that showed up only after they were done, though I had no idea that people that stayed would get an added bonus beyond the ‘hidden’ scene itself.
Who’s Joss Whedon, you might ask? He created “Buffy, The Vampire Slayer” television series, as well as “Angel,” “Firefly,” “Dollhouse” and wrote screenplays for numerous films, such as “Toy Story,” “Alien: Resurrection” and “Serenity”, and will be directing Marvel’s upcoming “Avengers.”
So–if you stayed till after the credits–you not only got to see a cool intro to an artifact that plays a significant role in the upcoming “Captain America: The First Avenger,” but–unbeknownst to us all–witnessed the directoral chops of Mr. Whedon.
