The Biggest Surprises Of Comic-Con 2013 | 7. The Zero Theorem Sees Gilliam Back As Gilliam
7. The Zero Theorem Sees Gilliam Back As Gilliam

Not everything at Comic-Con is a blockbuster starring a superhero - just most things. But one exception was Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem, which previewed on Thursday with a demented-looking sizzle reel followed by the first ten minutes of the film. A paranoid but perky Gilliam, by video link, claimed to be locked up by his producers until he finishes the film and sending this message via the ever-present NSA spies. But the film itself looks to have a similar streak of mistrust and manic energy, and it's a wonderful mismatch of bright neon and derelict browns and greys. In other words, not only has Gilliam succeeded in making another film - always something to celebrate - but it seems he's made one that's firmly in his natural wheel-house. Read the full story.

"What we saw raised hopes that the Spider-sequel will be more defined and muscular THAT the first film," surely THAN is the operable word here? Don't mind me I'm just saying, I mean you wouldn't want to look unprofessional would you? More

2 Dangerous Move
They need to do it right, it sounds good but it's easy for them to go wrong here. Nevertheless it's an interesting move and it would be exciting to see the outcome. More

3 Bad idea
Not sure/happy about having a Supes sequel with Batman in it, fine if they did a standard Superman sequel then a standalone film with Batman like Avengers, but I feel its just a marketing ploy to relaunch a new Batman actor and will diminish the new superman legacy etc More

5 RE: Batman/Superman
I don't get this whole 'Superman's would make Batman redundant' line of thinking. There's been a number of crossovers done in the past. The 'Public Enemies' storyline for instance which is really good and the 'World's Finest' episodes from Superman TAS. If the characters couldn't combine, then I hardly think they would've survived past the first crossover. More

6 Batman/Superman
If they were going to include batman in the Man of Steel sequel, then it was silly of them to make Superman as invincible as he was. I mean, he could lift ships. While Batman is a more interesting character altogether, he would sadly, get squished by Batman in a second, and would be a useless companion. More
