The Dark Knight Trilogy is highly regarded in the DC Comics film adaptations because of all the components involved. A large portion of that was a result of Christopher Nolan’s thoughtfulness and hard work expended to make these films. One such aspect is his heavy use of practical effects which embody creating miniatures and physical sets.
Therefore, I think it would be awesome if other DC Comics films incorporated and relied more on practical effects in other films. For instance, if Superman is using his freeze breath (on something like a barrel), the actor can visit a location where his breath will be visible and the camera captures that as well as setting up a camera to watch a barrel freeze in a natural state. Those two clips can be edited to make it seem like the actor froze the barrel. Or, if Flash is using super speed, then the actor can run past “people” who are mannequins pretending to be people.
Would anyone else like there to be more practical effects in films? What scenes could be adapted to become more realistic?
