Awesome trailer. Man! I look forward to this movie!

And, obviously, the main villain is going to be Gary Mitchell!

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

There was some good stuff in the trailer and I'm trying to keep an open mind. However, that Pa Kent scene really, really, rubbed me the wrong way. Pa Ken's role has always been to teach Clark what it means to be human and that "son, you were put here for a purpose." Having him be the one who wants Clark to hide, to the point of "maybe" letting people die, seemed contrary to the whole point of the character.

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

Brilliant trailer! For the moment, this is my most anticipated film for next year edging IM3 and STID slightly. I'm still a bit uneasy about Snyder (never cared for him), but I hope for the best.

Then again, I have been burned by trailers before.

I liked Superman Returns! It could have used more action but it really wasn't that bad.

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

I didn't think S:R was that bad either but it did have problems in it. Mostly a slow pace, sort of a boring/nothing story and Lex Luthor having Crazy Real-Estate Scam #1078-Z. Superman and Lois mostly acted like they had just taken a couple Xanax they were so morose and dull. To quote Kevin Smith, "You know how the first Superman movie had the tag-line, "You won't believe a man can fly?" This one should have been, "You won't believe how boring this man is." He moped around that movie like a winy emo punk." (or to that effect.)

I "liked" it but it had many flaws. It hardly made me pump by fist and go "Yeah! Superman!!!" It made go, "Oh.. Neat. Superman lifting a plane." ... "Superman lifting a boat..." "Superman lifting the Daily Planet globe..."

In this movie Superman will hopefully, you know, DO SOMETHING!

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

The Jonathan conversation with Clark on the truck reminded me of a panel straight out of "Superman Secret Origin" where he basically warns Clark about using his powers in public. It seems like "Man of Steel" is going for a little bit more harsher take on Jonathan and that's okay with me. Most modern versions of Jonathan have him concerned about Clark's use of his powers in public. I remember "Smallville" Jonathan not exactly thrilled with Clark using his powers in public either.

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

This should've been the first released footage and not that dull teaser. It's still not as great as the scenes from the Comic Con trailer this past July but this makes it look great(yeah I know SR also did that).

My first indicator that it'll hit general audiences radar better is a co-worker sent me a text saying he'd just seen the MoS trailer "WOW" is what he said!!

Now if they follow this trailer up with a kick ass SuperBowl spot that has the real kinetic money shots all cleaned up and perfected from the SDCC spot people will line up on opening night.

Well, someone has to like it. I still think that suit looks stupid as hell.

I think it's refreshing that there seems to be a little twist on things. What's the point in having the exact same character motivations in every version of the Superman mythos? Rather not have more of the same every time...
