The sequel to Man of Steel is one of the most awaited films. There’s a lot of inquisitiveness regarding the plot. However, the producers are making sure the storyline stays behind curtains. In this technological era, it’s not hard for inside details to surface. Alleged spoilers include a retired forty-year-old Bruce (plausible), Batman is an international legend (no doubt), the film starts seven years after the events of The Dark Knight Rises (highly questionable), Batman is rebuilding his city alongside Nightwing, and Wayne says he’s financing Batman (this can’t be connected to Chris Nolan’s Batman ‘cause Wayne’s dead?). Probably a bunch’a BS, if you ask me. Still unsure how they’ll fit WW…
The Saturday Morning Post, by Ruiz Burgos.
- Ah, here’s June, here she comes. ‘She walks in beauty like the night.’ Only she’s cycling, and the sun’s out.
That line. I love that line so much. In a few words it tells you so much about Frank’s character.
Can we just talk about how fabulous this scene is for a bit? How quickly and completely Emeric (and Micky) introduce us to Frank Reeves. We don’t learn everything about him, but we learn the important bits. He’s a top brain surgeon who likes being a village doctor; he’s a Romantic poetry enthusiast who is wryly sardonic about romance; he’s self-effacing and totally in charge; he’s funny and serious; he’s inquisitive and removed; he’s affectionate with June but not a suitor. And we learn all this from a couple of minutes of conversation, without really realising how much we’ve been told, as it’s done with such a lightness of touch.
Just like the start of the film, where that small conversation between June and Peter has to sell the romance (has to make us fall in love with the characters, really), this scene tells us that Frank is the best man for the job, even though we don’t yet know what it is. It’s a marvel of scriptwriting (and acting, of course). So that when we get to the moment of ‘here on earth, I am your defending counsel’ (and later, to the Other World) it’s perfect, and obvious.
