@Gojira to answer your earlier question...footage is supposed to be shown during the "Man of Steel" panel. I'm guessing similar to what has been done before with "Thor" and "Captain America: First Avenger". Then we will most likely get the teaser trailer attached with "The Dark Knight Rises" next weekend.

Superman Homepage confirms the trailer will be attached with "The Dark Knight Rises" next weekend.

Thanks! I am hopeful that whatever they show at Comic-Con will be leaked early. If Not I can wait to see it with Batman.

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

A rough description of the teaser from the live Comic-con coverage of comingsoon.net

"This looks VERY different from Superman films of the past

None of the trademark Snyder shots in the trailer. No slo-mo or shuttery frames

We see flashes of Smallville. The farm house. Clark running in a red cape as a child.

An older, bearded Clark walks a snowy road in an arctic town.

We hear Russell Crowe's voice talking about children being inspired to greater things

It sounds like it's cut with Kevin Costner's voice. Both fathers are giving Clark/Kal advice on how to become who he wants to be

We see Clark being brought to the Kent barn and shown the spaceship that has been hidden there

Clark holds a small piece of metal with the S logo on the end

We're jumping back and forth through time periods

Clark, as a teen, saved a bus of kids

The bus crashed in the water and we see him swimming, pulling the door off.

"People are afraid of what they don't understand," says Costner

We see Clark talking to Jor-El. They're standing right in front of one another, but I think it's a holographic projection (though it looks live)

We see Superman in the suit. First from a distance and then walking across a snowy plain

There are flashing of Superman flying and one of him catching someone falling off a building

A single flash of Amy Adams' Lois Lane

One flash has Superman (in costume) -- seemingly in handcuffs -- being led down a hallway by a security force

We see Clark (without seeing his face) stepping into an elevator and begin to lift glasses to his face

There's a flash of Clark, shirtless, with his whole body on fire

Another of him crashing into the bank vault we saw in the first still. It looks like he's been thrown."
There's a major discussion in the narration about the world turning against Superman because they don't trust him if he ever appears

We also hear a woman's voice saying "My son saw what Clark did on that bus."

Apparently someone witnessed young Clark as a child saving the bus with his powers

There's a flash of Zod, but literally so fast you just see his face
The whole look of it has a very dark, autumny feel to it all

Gritty isn't the right world. It looks real, but not "dark"

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

I'm really eager to see the trailer now...kind of 60-40 on the poster. Has a strong "Batman Begins" feel to it. Here is Collider's coverage of the panel.

Sorry, I'm not going to watch the preview first in crappy youtube quality.

I'll wait to see the teaser when it is shown with TDKR.

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

Let's see it posted officially on the U-Tubez already.

From what I can see so far, it looks great, promising in fact, and I eagerly await this.

However, that music is dullsville to me: just your basic cue-dramatic moody "classical music" that they use in movies these days. I hope there'll be some music that's more inspired, original, energetic, uplifting, and inspiring; maybe they're holding that back for now.

The music is Zimmer. It's "Journey to the Line" from "The Thin Red Line". I thought it was appropriate given the "Batman Begins" vibe.

Ah, thanks. I thought it sounded awfully familiar.

We'll have to agree to disagree about it being appropriate. I've already seen Batman Begins; I'd like to see something new. But I'm still looking forward to this.

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

Wow, very cool. As expected, it looks like the takeoffs are going to be more Smallville-style than the graceful style of the Reeve films.

Love the general tone though, and the gritty, real world look of it all.
