It's been a while since I've seen "Superman II" but I don't recall Superman and Zod's fight as being as dull as you do.

I think it still holds up really well. Certainly, until maybe a decade or so ago, it would have been in the top ten onscreen superhero smackdowns.

Superman fights the Kryptonians

In re-watching this I can't help but notice the twin towers in New York

Meh. That really isn't much of a fight scene. There's like 20 seconds of interactions in that entire video. The Junkyard fight from Superman III is much better and more in the style of what I want to see in the future.

That fight scene is probably the "best" think about Superman 3.

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

There are two details in the trailer that caught my eye.

1. The pebbles starting to float just before Superman is launching.

This suggests they're going for the John Byrne version of explaining his flight (or they're at least using it as visual reference), where Superman has a way (probably an organ inside his body which has developed on earth) of controlling gravitons, in other words, he has the ability to manipulate gravity to some extent.

2.

Chest hair sticking out of neck line. Oops.

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

I gotta say, that is one dark Superman suit. Almost makes the SR one look bright and cheery in comparison. Lol

I remember people suggesting that Snyder might brighten things up and make everything more colorful in post-production, but that doesn't appear to be the case. In fact it almost looks darker than in that first publicity photo.

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

It doesn't look to me like the pebbles are floating - it looks like they're bouncing and rolling. As if the earth is shaking beneath him as he tenses and braces himself to leap up. In the shot down from above, the ground has cracked open.

Which would be pretty cool.

Actually Superman's flight ability has been redesignated as 'Super Flatulence' for this film.

Of course, he can. But I don't think it's supposed to stick out. He's not Austin Powers, you know.

Besides, maybe all Kryptonians have chest hair regardless of gender.

I would imagine that Superman's chest is resistant to waxing
