Anyway, enough of you will have seen Man of Steel by now to be able to comment on the film’s flaunting of comic book canon in a few crucial areas – particularly Superman’s handling of one particular foe! Consider also how Iron Man 3 treated that franchise’s most iconic villain, the Mandarin, a few months back.
We’re using superheroes as examples but this could apply to any film adaptation of a literary, TV or video game series which draws on a substantial amount of world lore. How do you feel about liberties being made to the source material? Do you respond on a case by case basis to changes? What alterations have you agreed with and what have you hated? Mouth off now.
