With some hosts that have read the book by Nancy Springer and some that have not, Adaptation covers the film adaptation Enola Holmes (2020), complete with a rant about corsetry and concerns about the tone of Holmesian mysteries.
There were a lot of foundational issues to be found in Justice League (2017), but the Adaptation hosts were able to find a couple moments to love in the film.
The hosts are hot and cold in this discussion of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). We can’t love certain casting choices any more, but full-on hate others; we love certain plot points, but found others confusing.
Question of the Week: Did this movie get you excited for more of the DC universe or did it discourage you from wanting to see future movies?
In discussing Zach Snyder’s film Man of Steel, the hosts touch on the decidedly darker tone, how this Superman will fit into the future Justice League movie and how the characters compare to their previous incarnations.

Following the example of the recently wrapped up Batman series, the new trailer for Man of Steel gives us a little darker image of the iconic Superman. This was foreshadowed back in July with the release of the poster which showed a shadow-covered Henry Cavill sporting a suit seemingly made of chain-mail. Check out the teaser below:
With producer Christopher Nolan receiving a story writing credit for the film, alongside David S. Goyer as screenwriter, the team working on the film is sure to make it something special. And with General Zod credited as the villain for Zack Snyder’s new adaptation, it might be following Nolan’s formula even closer by providing an origin story for the Justice-League-bound superhero.
Though the trailer only gives us a look at front-man Henry Cavill, the film will also star Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane. It is set to release June 14, 2013.
The newest image of Superman released for Comic Con has done a good job of drumming up some excitement for Zack Snyder’s rendition of the comic book superhero: Man of Steel. The shadow covering Henry Cavill’s face directs attention immediately to the Superman costume which looks a bit like chainmail to this observer, somewhat playing upon the steel part of this super-man. Many observers seem to enjoy the return to a more classical style of insignia design as well.
If the old adage “The suit makes the man” holds true, Superman will truly soar and Man of Steel will manage to cash in.
