Why destruction in Avengers and Man of Steel is different
Some people online have been wondering why the ending of The Avengers didn’t result in the same complaints. There are a couple of reasons, the biggest one being that the destruction in The Avengers is tiny compared to that in Man of Steel. The entire battle in The Avengers is kept in a few city blocks. In Man of Steel Superman punches Zod away from the destroyed section of the city to go fight him in populated areas.
What’s more, the best parts of the final fight in The Avengers deal with saving civilians. Captain America creates a battle plan intended to contain the chaos, and then he has a great, wonderful moment where he convinces jaded New York City cops to help evacuate people. Then he rescues civilians from the Chitauri. And then Iron Man, not as much of a protector hero as Superman, sacrifices (he thinks) his life to save New York City from being nuked. Finally, the film has a sequence where the aftermath of the battle - including a wall of pictures of the missing civilians - is revealed.
The two fights aren’t comparable because The Avengers did it right.
For a second there, I read the title of your post and I was getting so pleased, but nope. You shot that one to pieces.
To alter your last sentence slightly, the two fights aren’t comparable because they are two completely different movies. They are both good movies, don’t get me wrong… They’re just different.
Gonna put this under a read more because god knows my followers have seen this enough times.
One is light hearted and the other is based more in realism. One has a team of somewhat seasoned heroes, weaker aliens that regular humans can actually fight (w/ guns and shit) and aliens that are mostly just riding around on flying jetskis. The other has one man who has had the suit for like 24 hours, aliens that bullets have [little/no] effect on, and aliens whose sole goal is to destroy rather than enslave.
And uhh, that sentence about how Superman punches Zod out of the destroyed part of the city and into the populated part, yeah.. at no point did that happen. He spent basically the whole fight chasing Zod or being punched/thrown away by Zod. When he punches Zod in that part where the cars are falling, He doesn’t move from that spot. It’s still next to the parking complex. When Superman punches Zod in mid-air, Zod is still in the air and not hitting buildings and then flies away and hides from Superman. Literally at no point does Superman punch Zod into a populated area.
But uh, yeah back to your second paragraph, when you’re fangirling over Cap convincing the cops to evacuate people and whatnot… Yeah, the cops in Man of Steel were already trying that [eg the daily planet staff running out of the building and the cop trying to herd them to safety], so uh… y’know. In this movie, the humans aren’t completely useless (y).
Basically, from what I’ve seen of reactions to Man of Steel, tumblr is a bit hypocritical. It’s all like “raraaraa victim blaming is horrible” but it turns around and crucifies Clark for the destruction in the movie… seriously, HOW DARE YOU BE THROWN THROUGH 5 BUILDINGS?
Cap and the avengers made a battle plan and everything rararara… Cap is a soldier. They’ve all been heroes for a while. Superman is new to this and was just a farm boy. He has no idea how to deal with this kind of situation. Superman tried his fucking best. He’s pretty new to it all and he’s up against the general of an entire planet (plus his cronies). Also, majority of the destruction happened when he wasn’t there. Y’know, when he was over on the other side of the planet trying to deal with the machine which was destroying earth as we knew it and making him weaker at the same time…
tl;dr both are different kinds of movies, yet both are great movies. (just please don’t tag hate next time, buddy. me and all the MoS fans are getting reaaaal sick of this)
Thank you Chan, thank you, thank you,
Removing your “read more”, cause I’d like my peeps to see all this.
Oh boy I’m so sick of those MoS haters’ idiotic arguments. So. Sick. It’s like those ppl watched another, entirely different movie, or they’re just imagining things. Shut up already and watch the fucking film again. And again, and again, replay the scenes, count your fingers, get your aunt to see it and discuss, dunno, do what you need to do until you get a fucking grip.
Then express your opinion.
