In winning the fight, Thor was then crowned the ruler of Asgard. Furthermore, in the movie Man of Steel, Superman had all his life to experience what his powers were and what he can do. When he found out what was going on and the only way to save the world was to kill someone that he was close to, he had no choice but to fight General Zod and save those people. General Zod was someone very close to Superman. He's been in his life since he was a little boy so having to fight and kill him was a challenge, also to mention that Zod had higher power and more strength.
The play Julius Caesar and the movie Man of Steel share a similar timeless theme. Julius Caesar was written in 1599-1600 A.D. by William Shakespeare. Zack Snyder's film Man of Steel, released in 2013, stars Henry Cavill as Superman and Michael Shannon as General Zod. In these productions we meet two power hungry characters, Julius Caesar and General Zod. Both of these characters are leaders who demonstrate a relentless desire for power and are eventually betrayed by those close to them.
The film Stardust fits the classic Hero’s Journey mold, while also having elements of a post-modern Hero’s Journey as well. Many archetypes from The Hero’s Journey are seen and some characters possess more than one archetype or stray away from the classical versions of their archetype adding to the idea of a post-modern Hero’s Journey. As you will see this film has the characteristics of both types of The Hero’s Journey. The first way that Stardust relates to the classic Hero’s Journey is when the hero of the film Tristan goes through the Hero’s Journey cycle. He starts out in his normal life where things go wrong for him which is his status quo.
One of these biggest problems was the fact that some of the film was produced and released during the 1988 Writers Guild of America strike (Rain Man). Although the script was already written during this time, the strike still affected the film. Instead, most of the movie was photographed during the strike. Despite this challenge, most of the movie remained unhindered, except for the final scene where critics could tell that it was rushed, but to the average watcher, it looked just like the rest of the movie.
Superman embodies the ideals of a nation. Just like Odysseus, Superman is strong, compassionate, and brave. Superman is able to pick up a plane with arm, now that is what you call super human strength. He loves to just save everyday people or people that can’t really defend themselves against the forces of evil. Superman would put his life on the line to save millions every day of his life.
This realistic portrayal of adolescence sets the film apart from many others in its genre because Samantha is nothing like the one-dimensional teen characters found in many movies. ANTAGONIST - An antagonist who does an amazing job as the "evil villian" is Jesse Eisenberg, as Lex Luthor in Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice, directed by Zack Snyder. Lex Luthor has been Superman 's archenemy for most of Superman 's existence. He has also been envisioned as Superman 's dual opposite; morally depraved and relying on intellect over strength. STATIC - A character I find pretty static throught the whole movie is Neo from The Matrix, played by Keanu Reeves, directed by Lilly Wachowski and Lana Wachowski.
Sherman and Superman are both considered oddities even though Sherman was born on Earth. “...simply an oddity.” Alexie was an oddity because he is a smart Indian. “...born Kal-El on the planet Krypton…” According to Wikipedia Superman was born on another planet which makes him an oddity.
Ideally, Watchmen bring forth the idea of superheroes living among us and doing what we (it makes superheroes real). As pointed out by Thompson Watchmen captures the nature of heroes that the previous comic failed to do (107). For instance, if the Spiderman movie turned and be real and help to suspend the disbelief of its audience; this can help build on the notion of the Watchmen of superheroes being real and among us. However, Thompson further argues that Watchman implies that if people are allowed to realize their superhero fantasies, the real world will become altered but not in a good way (108). Ideally, this implies that an idea can be destroyed by its own realization that is the extreme development of an idea can lead to its destruction.
In the movie, "The World's End", directed by Edgar Wright, Gary King has to face his past as he goes back to his hometown to face a forgotten challenge within his Hero's Journey. This movie contains the Hero's Journey because it brings us closer to the characters as we watch Gary transform into a new person throughout the film, while facing his quest of the Golden Mile Pub Crawl. While we learn different things about the characters from the movie, we realize they fit into Campbell’s idea of the Hero’s Journey. The Hero’s Journey gives an example of how a person, or a hero, changes throughout an experience or an adventure. Overall, there are three parts to the Hero’s Journey, the departure, the initiation and the return, which produce the adventure or the experience.
An example of Superman’s super strength would be when he is fighting the bad guys and picks up cars and other heavy objects to use as weapons. Even though both heroes share the power of super strength, Superman possess other attributes that are unique to only him. Superman has the ability to fly anywhere he wants. An example of Superman flying would be when Superman is flying around to help save the towns people during a fight with the bad guys. Superman is also immortal, unlike Beowulf.
