“Man of Steel” Retrospective

Man of Steel

“Man of Steel” hit theaters in 2013 and it instantly divided movie-goers. “Is this the kind of Superman movie we want?” people would ask. “Isn’t it too dark?” Well, we are here to bring balance to the conversation. We never reviewed “Man of Steel” because of reasons but now with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” coming out, we figured it would be a good time to revisit the first film! How does it hold up over time? Tune in to find out!
