Despite the excitement over ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ many people felt Zach Snyder’s ‘Man of Steel’ was a bit drab, both in story and color palette. This certainly makes one question how ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ will turn out. Will it be too dark or take itself too seriously?
While VideoLab could do nothing to change the plot, they did adjust the color palette of ‘Man of Steel’ to make it brighter, which many believe is how Superman should be portrayed.
Here’s a summary of the video restoration:
“VideoLab attempts to turn back time and restore the natural color and brightness in shots from DC’s ‘Man of Steel’. Turns out there was a beautiful Zack Snyder movie hiding underneath the bleak coloring. Would ‘Man of Steel’ have been more successful at the box office if it wasn’t colored like ‘Schindler’s List’? What do you think?”
