Man of Steel has always been polarizing for audiences since its release in 2013 with Christopher Nolan's gritty and realistic take on Batman breaking records and setting a new standard for Super Heroes. There was no real leap of what Warner and DC were going to do take Superman the next most popular character give him the Dark Knight treatment and lightning will strike twice right? Not really, For many taking a character who is far more: optimistic, light hearted, and colorful than Batman and giving him a realistic dark gritty origin was not what some wanted from the hero who symbolizes hope. If you are one such person who wanted a more traditional heroic take on Superman this is the edit for you. Wakeupkeo work should be commended for making this I was skeptical that this movie could be salvaged but I am pleasantly surprised and am looking forward to his other edits on the dceu. it still isn't perfect but considering how much of an improvement this was to the man of tomorrow I finished this wishing this was the movie I watched opening weekend 2013.

This is a fantastic edit. The choices made showing what we could have gotten in the theater. Pacing is very good and the story is much tighter with the removal of those 20ish minutes. This edit tells the story in the way we wanted to see. I can't help but think if a few more deleted scenes to help flesh out the edit would move this entire movie into summer blockbuster status.

Wakeupkeo expertly trims unnecessary subplots, streamlines the narrative, and injects a fresh perspective into the film, resulting in a more focused and engaging viewing experience. The pacing is tight, allowing for an immersive journey that captivates from start to finish.

One of the standout aspects of this edit is its commitment to exploring the deeper layers of Superman's character. Wakeupkeo deftly balances the superhero's superhuman abilities with his emotional struggles, presenting a more nuanced and relatable portrayal of the Man of Steel.

The visual and audio quality of The Outsider Edit is exceptional. The editing seamlessly blends the original footage with new additions, creating a cohesive and polished final product.

This is a really streamlined cut of MoS with some really great ideas, particularly adding the mountain top talk with Pa Kent's "ghost" to the end and the reimagining of his death.

However, I think there's too much great stuff cut that's necessary to let the film breathe.

The mountain top scene with Pa feels too truncated and the First Flight scene is absolutely something that should be reinserted.

I loved. I already saw several of his edits wonder woman, batman v superman, suicide squad and obviously this one and I think that regular and decent movies are turned into very good movies. I have always been more of a DC fan than a Marvel fan and I had been quite disappointed by the movies they had released, but with these edits I think they look better than many Marvel movies. Thank you for all of your work.
