Brief Synopsis:
'Man of Tomorrow' is a narrative experiment that combines Man of Steel and Batman V. Superman into one film. The goal was to use material from both films to form a single, feature-length, 3-act structure that focuses on Superman.
Intention:
Like many, I was less-than-enamored with Batman V. Superman. The Ultimate Edition was much more coherent, but it was fundamentally the same film. This was a very dark story about Batman wanting to kill Superman… and Superman being kind of a dick most of the time. And while I wasn’t a huge fan of Man of Steel either, I did think it had some pretty great Superman moments, which BvS lacked. I decided to try to combine material from both films, focusing on their strengths and streamlining the narrative to the rise and fall of Superman.

Since I started with Man of Steel (2.2 hrs) and Batman V. Superman: Ultimate Edition (3 hrs), keeping the running-time down to 2.5 hours was no small task. A lot of plot wasn’t used (most of the Krypton sequence, the Smallville fight, the Africa subplot, the jar of pee…), but because the major threads that lead to the 3rd act of Batman V. Superman came directly from the battle in Metropolis (the crashed Kryptonian ship, the Kryptonite from the world engine, Batman’s distrust of Superman’s power) I chose to hone in on those story points as the core of the narrative for Man of Tomorrow. Several scenes were reordered or reworked to fit the new narrative structure and better weave the material from the the two films together. For example: Batman/Bruce Wayne is introduced in the 1st act, Superman doesn’t put on his suit until Zod appears, Lex Luthor interacts with the Kryptonian ship earlier, the dour shots of Superman’s heroism from BvS are used much more optimistically, and the flashback to Pa Kent’s death is utilized very differently, just to name a few changes to the structure.

This movie was beautiful! I'm a big fan of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, and this combines them nicely while making Superman more heroic. Only 10 minutes in and I knew I was going to love this movie.

I was nervous on how Zod's death was going to be handled and I had a sigh of relief for how jobwillins managed it.

This was a highly entertaining edit and I recommend seeing this fresh take on Superman.

After watching the the Jurassic World edit by Job Willins I knew this was going to be a great edit and he didn't disappoint. The way the flashbacks from Man of Steel have been incorporated and moved around is perfect and really adds an emotional aspect. The ending now has more emotional weight due to this as well. I really enjoyed this edit and highly recommend it if you're a Superman fan as the movie really focuses on Superman life.

Man of Steel is a good film, to me. The Ultimate Cut of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is also a good film, to me. This fan-edit basically combines the two into a two and a half hour long three-act-structured film that mainly focuses on what it should focus on: Superman, and it's phenomenal. It combines two underrated films into arguably one of the greatest comic book films ever made. The problems people had with both films with Superman seemingly not caring about humanity and him having the spotlight taken away from him are nowhere to be found here. Man of Tomorrow shows a Superman who struggles to fit into everyday society, who has trouble adapting to a world where people have lost their sense of hope, who's here on this Earth to inspire that hope and bring it back to the world, to have people gain that sense of hope again, and it shows that side of the character beautifully. I also loved how this portrayed Bruce Wayne/Batman and Lois Lane. Batman represents a side of the general public that thinks Superman is a danger to this planet, someone who shouldn't be trusted. On the other hand, Lois Lane represents the side of the general public that thinks Superman is a hero, a god among mortals. Even better is that it's not all black and white. You can very easily understand where both sides are coming from while at the same time you are easily invested in Superman's struggles, mainly to get the people of Earth to put their trust into him. The way different scenes from both films are edited together to make what's going on in the overall story more intense and dramatically rich and satisfying is amazing. Even if you hate Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, I highly recommend Man of Tomorrow. It's a beautifully crafted and beautifully edited work that's interesting and satisfying for fans of these films, like myself, to see and manages to fix many complaints haters had with them. Man of Tomorrow is not just a great fan edit, it's arguably a perfect Superman film, possibly the best since the Richard Donner original, if not just as good or even better.

I thoroughly enjoyed this edit. From beginning to end I thought it was nothing but an improvement, but I did notice I didn't feel as invested once the story transitions to BvS. However that is more a critique of BvS than MoT. Would recommend.
