Man of Steel Said To Be Better Than The Dark Knight Rises; Compared To Avengers Vs. Watchmen


5901 Warner Bros. may have their next hit franchise with Henry Cavill as reports of early screenings of the Man of Steel have been hitting the net.

The latest has it that the Man of Steel is better than The Dark Knight Rises, with the fight scenes being compared to The Avengers vs. Watchmen.

Nick Jones Jr., an actor known for roles in Battle Los Angeles as well as a cut scene in Green Lantern, took to his twitter last night to offer some thoughts.

"I guess I can say this now. I saw Man of Steel the other day at a special screening.... It was a masterpiece of epic proportions," Jones tweeted, which has since gone viral.

Then (via MOS Fan FB), Jones went on to state that the Man of Steel was better than Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, which went on to bring in over $1 billion worldwide last year.

"Honestly...... BETTER," Jones tweeted in response to a fan's question about being compared to The Dark Knight.

Other reports have surfaced stating the movie is going to be huge and that Warner Bros. is extremely pleased by it.

By all accounts if the Man of Steel is as much as a success as it's been stated, news of a Justice League movie should be announced shortly after the new Superman movie's debut, or we are hoping even earlier.

Henry Cavill is also signed on for a three picture deal with Warner Bros.

Man of Steel opens June 14th in IMAX 3D rated PG-13 directed by Zack Snyder.
