Update effects and minor differences aside, there's nothing new here. The story is the same as the Donner films.

I still think the first Superman movie is the best superhero movie yet, though several have come close. If this movie gets half way there I'd enjoy it.

Unless you've actually worked on the movie, or somehow have already managed to see it, you have no idea what the story is.

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

Not sure how someone can claim it has the same story as the Donner films when we still don't really know what that story is yet. Sure there will be similar things, but it won't be a copy of what has gone before in terms of film. I haven't read anything about the Phantom Zone being used in this film...I have a feeling that they're exiled or banished prior to the destruction of the planet or something like that, but not to the Zone, and as someone above mentioned manage to escape.

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

I think the first Superman film is overrated and has too much nostalgia love. What it has going for was it's was a very majestic, momentous atmosphere(through the memorial score, and some inspirational moments) and Reeve's and Brando is great and carry their roles with extraodinary gravitas.... but man, the film's later half is overtly campy and weakly plotted. Some cringeworthy dialouge( Sample the inner-monolouge Lois has when she is first flying with Superman --it's awful). Let's not forget the stupidty of the "turn back time by spinning the world around by flying so fast" scene. Not to mention, Lex's annnoying sidekicks. The Donnor films are classic's but it's time to make room for a fresh intepretation of this character that will be in the mainstream's conscious when they think of Superman rather then relics which are the Reeve's film's.

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

This flick is pretty much "Superman Begins." The only difference being that unlike Batman Begins they're going with a villian that is well known to the mainstream masses(which I guess it has a lot to do with Supes having a fairly handful of genuinely good villians). Not too thrilled, with Shannon's performance from this trailer(the viral message he did send was chilling and menacing) him in the trailer sounded kinda like a petulant child who need's a spanking.

All and all, the film is shaping out to be DC's answer to Iron Man. I doubt it'll make less then Begins, this flick will make more.

I thought "Green Lantern" was DC's answer to Iron Man?

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

The trailer is pretty amazing, for sure, and I'm really looking forward to the movie. But I also remember that pretty much all of Zack Snyder's other movies had amazing trailers, too, even the godawful Sucker Punch.

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

The movie might still disappoint but this is the first trailer that gives me hope. It shows that perhaps the makers of this movie actually "get" Superman. I get the sense that very few people do nowadays.

Still, I'd probably only rank it 5th on my most anticipated movies of the year list. Currently:
1. Thor: The Dark World
2. Iron Man 3
3. Catching Fire
4. Star Trek Into Darkness
5. Man of Steel
