Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Well the first shot is him with his arms wide like a crucifix.

My friend said that this trailer is a work of art, and is better than the STiD trailer.

First it's longer. The Trek trailer was a minute, just to announce the film. Secondly, reading into it a little, one of the things I've always liked about Trek was the idea that the peaceful future was an illusion. But only a few episodes have ever really hit that theme, and I believe it's far more interesting than most superhero tropes. By contrast, this trailer hits upon the same themes that the other superman films have hit, though I'm glad they are not dovetailing Donner. Even still, it feels like the same Passion of The Clark ideals that bogged down Returns, new aesthetic or not.
No more adventures! I'm not going that way!
