The countdown to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice with our commentary series on Superman theatrical feature films ends here with 2013's Man of Steel. Interestingly the only film in our commentary series to take place in the same continuity as Batman v. Superman, Man of Steel stands as Jake and Josh's favorite Superman film to date and allowed Warner Bros. to relaunch the iconic character for a new generation. But, with a sequel incoming, how do the boys feel about the film now? Take a listen as we dive into the, as of now, most recent cinematic adventure of the Last Son of Krypton!

Geek Out Commentary: Superman Returns

Is this movie really 10 years old now? Man, time flies. Continuing our countdown to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice with our commentary series of Superman films, this time with Sam's personal favorite Superman movie to date, Superman Returns! Bryan Singer ditched the third X-Men film to work on the first Superman film in 19 years as Superman: The Movie was one of the films that inspired him to become a filmmaker. Unfortunately, audiences and critics were lukewarm towards the spiritual sequel to Superman II and Warner Bros. were forced to go back to the drawing board with the cinematic adventures of the Man of Steel. Watch along and listen as we revisit the 2006 film and see how it stacks up a decade later.
