Hoping for a real kick ass trailer with Skyfall or Hobbit that includes a good deal of the SDCC footage.

I hope it comes out with one of those. I am definitely seeing them (well, unless everybody hates them), and I am dying to see more footage from MoS.

We most likely won't see the SDCC footage in an official capacity. That is akin to sizzle reel footage. There's a reason why it's SDCC Exclusive I'm thinking the trailers will also be done similar to how "Batman Begins" trailers were released.

Not likely. Talk about a convoluted back story, yeesh.

And Red Skull was in the Avengers Hero Clix sets, remember those rumors?

This seems like a similar situation.

I wouldn't read too much into this "story".

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

There's a lot of figures, sets, and such in the Batman Lego sets that's hardly indicative of what's going on in the Nolan Batman movies. I think trying to make judgments about a movie a year away from released based on toy tie-ins is... Not a way to get good information. Keep in mind the Lego figurine for Superman still has the gold belt and red trunks.

^Yeah. Remember, they released Skrull figures as part of the Avengers movie tie-in action figure line.

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

Well, Black Zero was more than just that silver age villain. In the John Byrne reboot, the Black Zero was a Kryptonian terrorist organization like Al Queda; their supposed cause was the fight for clone civil rights (Krypton at the time using clones to harvest organs). The final act of the Black Zero was to fire a sustained nuclear beam into Krypton's core in order to destroy the planet, but an ancestor of Jor-el stopped the beam. Unfortunately, the damage was done, and this eventually led to Krypton's destruction.

The new Superman movie seems to feature Phantom Zone criminals, so it's not far fetched to believe that Supes will face members of the Black Zero who were exiled. In this continuity, we may even find that Zod is part of the Black Zero.

That is exactly what I was going to say. The words Superman Black Zero Escape sound like in the film its a place,location, or object and not a person at all.

Seeing how obscure/unlikely villains aren't totally out of the question, I was hoping to see Conduit as a Superman villain in one of these movies someday.

^Good luck on that. Of comic book villains, DC has a track record of using the same ones over and over again for the movies.

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

Black Zero is pretty obscure, but i could see him working with Zod as kind of a henchmen or something.
