Yeah, so for those folks who think there are too many comic book movies you are getting a 10month break till Iron Man 3 comes out next May. No DC, Marvel or indie comic book adaption film coming out.
There are no more big superhero adaptations until May, but there are two indie non-superhero comic book adaptations before then: Dredd in September and I, Frankenstein in February.

A better quality version of the Comic Con trailer is out. It's unlisted on youtube but the name of it is funny

This is it? How underwhelming! For people who wanted to get away from Singer's Superman Returns, they put out a similar trailer but done worse. The whole thing would've been a better teaser for Aquaman The Movie with all that fisherman stuff!

The absolute feeling am getting about this movie is dread. Sure, I havent seen any real footage yet, but with the gloominess of the trailer and setting up Supes to be in a "real world setting" is pretty underwhelming IMO.

I have to agree with you. Superman Returns was a movie I was psyched about and it disappointed me greatly. But the teaser (whose only flaw was spending a quarter of its running time on logos) was just fantastic. It's remarkable how similar and how much better it is to the new teaser. Maybe part of it is John Williams' Superman theme (The new trailer used a great piece of music from Horner - Gandalf's fall, but it's obviously not what will be used, and represents Gandalf more than Superman), or maybe it's the power of Brando's voice (which far surpasses the voice of either Crowe or Costner) or maybe it's the words themselves, unforgettable and poetic. Maybe its the iconic shots they used in the trailer, people gazing skyward, or how heroic and romantic Supes looks as he steps to rather tiny (in comparison) Lois, or the fantastic shot from above both of them as he takes off. Or maybe its the glimmer in Routh's eyes before he rockets down to Earth. The new trailer, which looks more like the first hour of Batman Begins, doesn't come close, despite teasing the audience in the same way.

I kinda like it but I can see why people are underwhelmed by it. It's a bit like the first teaser for Batman Begins - only at the end did you realise that it was a trailer for a Batman movie and not a drama; only at the end of this one is it clear that it's for Superman. It's clearly aimed at general cinema audiences who may not be aware of the movie's existence, not for we geeks who do.

The end shot of Superman is a little disappointing for those of us who know what the trailer is for. Not quite the same as waiting 10 years to see Clark don the cape and tights in Smallville, then getting a cheapo CGI Superman but I would have liked a clearer look at him.

On the plus, Snyder seems to have moved away from his trademark style and the imagery here is lovely, while the idea of differing narratives is a neat one. I prefer the Costner one, personally. Crowe seems to have adapted a good voice for Jor-El; whether by design or accident, it seems pitched between Brando and Stamp.
Yeah some of those shots remind me of a Terence Malick film.

Here's a better quality version of the extended comic con trailer for those who missed it.

Hmm. yeah, I definitely wish that was the trailer I'd seen on the big screen in front of 'Dark Knight Rises.'

Maybe this scene starts with him watching 300? That definitely has alot of red cape imagery in it.

Which is exactly my point. What is he playing as if there is no Superman figure for him to imitate? In a world without superheroes with capes, where do the kids get the idea?
Probably the same place Siegel and Shuster got the idea. Superman's costume wasn't pulled out of the ether, it was based on the costumes that circus strongmen wore in the 1930s. Maybe in a world where that look didn't become associated with superheroes, it continued to be associated with circus performers. For that matter, Evel Knievel wore a cape during his career as a daredevil/stuntman, so even in real life the custom lasted at least until the '70s. Young Clark could've been emulating his favorite daredevil or acrobat or weightlifter.

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

I'd want Superman/Clark Kent to be a very wise, enlightened being, conscious, confident, a role model for everyone, because of his origin, and because Ma and Pa Kent are wonderful parents. He isn't prejudiced or jealous, and when he fights criminals he never kills (but then again, that's also Batman's thing), and he doesn't take justice into his own hands. But it seems that the film again goes for the "I don't know who I am, I don't know what I want" angle.

Superman Returns had him being depressive and jealous, I never liked that.

Superman II had him turning into a pussy after he lost his powers, and at the end, when he got his powers back, he bullied the guy. Not something someone could admire.
