How It Should Have Ended

Man of Steel

The folks at How It Should Have Ended have once again found the humor in a major release, this time taking aim at Superman’s latest appearance in Man of Steel. As you might remember from the time around the film’s release, there was a great deal of rumbling around the ending of Zack Snyder’s film. For one, Superman and Zod face off in the middle of Metropolis, their fight causing an immeasurable amount of damage. Experts in the field of damage assessment even went as far as to say that the fight caused upwards of $2 trillion in damages to Metropolis. There’s no arguing that such destruction is ridiculous. Then again, others have argued that it’s a mostly realistic vision of what a fight between two god-like alien beings would look like in the middle of a city the size of say, New York. Wherever you fall on Damagegate, it’s hard to argue with the questions about the necessity of having the fight in the middle of the city. This point, above all, is brought to light with a playful sense of imagination by the HISHE crew. Yes, they’ve found the answer — one that might have caused less damage, but surely would have made a less entertaining film.


Why Watch? Because everyone deserves to have a little fun now and then. And guest week here on Short Film of the Day is going to start with just that. While Cole Abaius is off battling large blonde men for the right to have high speed internet in Germany, we are filling your lives with good ole’ American ingenuity. As in, we will be planning Short Films at the very last moment every single day. We begin our week with a hefty dose of nerdity It’s something in which the folks behind the How It Should Have Ended short series specialize in the most dastardly of ways. They’ve made some semblance of a living taking high geek properties and spinning them in unique ways that always have internet commentators saying, “I’ve been saying that for years! LOLz” This particular offering is like a bowl full of Ben & Jerry’s Nerd Bait ice cream topped with whipped dork cream, chocolate geek sauce and well, a simple cherry. And as gross as that actually sounds, you know you’d eat it — especially if it was all part of a clash between the Terminator and Back to the Future franchises. Come with us if you want to live… At least for the next 150 seconds. What does it cost? Just two minutes and thirty seconds of your otherwise mundane Monday. Admit it. You’ve got time to watch more Short Films.
