Color me intrigued.
Not for the Staring Contest part, but for the way Batman's captors kneel before Kal-El as he comes down the hallway. Remember Jor-El's line to his wife as they prepared to launch their only child to the stars?
"He will be a god to them."
Apparently, Zach Snyder didn't mean that as a throwaway.
I liked Man of Steel, even if it needed some editing down--after a while, it was just way too much mayhem.
This might be a quieter movie, and thus all the better for it.
