Looks wonderful.

You know, that really looked like a guy flying. 'Bout time.
Well he's only a tiny speck in the sky here, so who knows. Although I assume the CG Superman in this movie will be much better than the crappy one we saw in SR.

At least I hope.

I liked the one with the Jor-El voice over much better. As Out of My Vulcan Mind stated the line was paraphrased right out of All-Star Superman.

Why does Superman leave white trails in the sky? Does he have jet engines in his boots, do they leave water vapor behind?
Someone raised that question on the SuperHeroHype forum and someone else answered with this:

Contrails ( /ˈkɒntreɪlz/; short for "condensation trails") or vapour trails are long thin artificial clouds that sometimes form behind aircraft. Their formation is most often triggered by the water vapour in the exhaust of aircraft engines, but can also be triggered by the changes in air pressure in wingtip vortices or in the air over the entire wing surface. Like all clouds, contrails are made of water, in the form of a suspension of billions of liquid droplets or ice crystals.

So Superman flying through the air would cause changes in air pressure and cause contrails.

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

^ That makes plausible sense and I can accept that. One of the things I liked about SR and now MOS is that with computer graphics they can show Superman flying with some speed which isn't something the other movies could not do well.

I've watched both versions, and I think I like the Jor-El one better. Even though the teasers don't show a lot, I really like the look and tone that it's showing.

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

I must say I like the Jor-El one a little more too.
Now that we are done with the TDKR, I wonder which movie we could expect the next big trailer to be attached to.

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

Possibly "SkyFall" since it comes out before "The Hobbit", the latter is more likely though for the first full trailer.

^Those two seem like pretty good guesses to me. I guess we're actually done with comic book movies for a while now, aren't we? At least big superhero ones.

Because contrails aren't created by jet technology.

I just saw the trailer. It felt like more of a Gorton's Frozen Fish Stick trailer than a Superman trailer.

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

I kind of liked the teaser trailer, I'm still on the fence about Nolan's sense of realism which I felt while watching it, but I did like the flying at the end even though it remined me of the first Iron Man trailer.

Saw that in the trailer, might just be a visual representation of vortices in his wake, he's flying so fast as such an odd shape he's just disturbing the air that much,
