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

Late to the party.
It's been taken down already.

^I wish whoever had made that recording had thought to turn off the autofocus.

I just came.

God, I can't wait for a higher-quality and longer trailer to come to the the theaters/internet. The one before TDKR was great and I loved it (even if it didn't give me much) but this movie is going to be.... Awesome.

On the discussion of Clark wearing a cape...

Seems like an odd question, I mean in any iteration of Superman we could ask the same question. "Why a red cape?"

The imagery of it certainly isn't only rooted in Superman from our world capes existed before then. Clark got it from one of those places, that or an in-universe superhero (Smallville had one.) Who said the idea of wearing a red cape and standing boldly with your fists at your hips can only come from Superman?

Plus, maybe Clark was a Zorro fan?
Kids don't imitate Zorro by putting on a cape.
Oh, so you know how kids in this Superman's universe behave?

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

Okay, Cavill looks fantastic as Superman in the Comic-Con footage. He's credible in a way that Reeve and Routh no longer are.

Oh, BTW, Clark is imitating Captain Marvel with the cape - there was no National Periodicals to sue over the character, and he's very, very big in Clark's world.

In the context of Man of Steel, he most likely wears it to honor his Kryptonian heritage in general and Jor-El in particular.

Adult Clark/Kal, sure, but if I understand the movie correctly he doesn't find out about his Kryptonian heritage until adulthood.

Nope, only as a character in a period film. There was no attempt in the Reeve-era Superman movies to portray anything other than a comic-book vision of the characters and the world they inhabited, and Singer imitated that heightened and simplified sense of color and place. Cavill comes off here, visually, as plausibly existing in a world that looks as much like ours as contemporary commercial films ever show it.

Cool, thanks!

That conveys a much better sense of tone, scope and direction for the film. Too bad the focus on that footage is a bit askew.

After the let down of Superman Returns I saw want this one to be great. They gave us great footage for Returns I recall as well, however, once placed into context the film was sadly disappointing. Felt like a big bait and switch.

Please let this be the epic rebirth on screen for Superman that he deserves.

Sojourner considering whoever was recording this was in violation of SDCC's no recording policy in the first place...probably didn't have time to make proper adjustments to the camera.

The shots of young Clark wearing the cape almost certainly won't actually be in the movie. They were likely shot specifically for the teaser to form part of its tone poem style.

It might look that way now, but Donner was all about making his Superman look as real and believable as possible. And when I was a kid, that's pretty much how it felt.

For a comic book movie, Metropolis looked like a very real and grimy place, and many of the other locations (like the New Mexico desert where Lois dies) looked pretty gritty and real as well.

At least compared to today's superhero movies, where pretty much everything looks like a set.

Obviously, but it can't stop me from wishing.

Or at least a world as portrayed in Deadliest Catch.
