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

I couldn't find it when I just looked, but earlier today one of the official Facebook pages made a post wondering if the tentacle thing we see a clip of in the trailer is Starro. You can see "Starro" in the 21st picture in IO9's screencaps.

It looks like a mechanical tendril to me. Probably from Zod's weapon or whatever is that he deploys.

I don't really like it, but it's just a poster. I like the idea of them painting it, it's just not that good.

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.
Agree that it's very much overrated. I enjoyed the film in '79, but did not believe for a moment that "a man can fly". Aside from the occasional crane work, it was just the same technique used to make George fly, albeit slightly better looking.

Plus, I never really bought Christopher Reeve as Superman. Too skinny. Cavil's got the physique, the jaw and if had the spit curl, he'd be the closest screen incarnation to look like Superman.

I'm ready for someone to obliterate the inane notion that Reeve was somehow the definitive Superman, instead of just the Superman for a specific generation. I'm happy to finally be getting a new Superman for a new generation.

While I figure it's just some weird machine or weapon, my first thought actually went to Solaris.

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?
Actually, Nolan is tired of Warner twiddling their thumbs with Justice League, so he's taking Batman and Superman to join The Avengers instead.

I am kind of hoping that the attack at the beginning of the trailer is Brainiac attacking Krypton but I imagine it will just be Zod and some failed coup that leads to Kryptons destruction.

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

It's probably just Zod's failed attempted coup...although it could also be a flashback to Brainiac's assault on Earth and Zod's attempt at repelling it. I was kind of hoping too that they would include this from New Krypton as a way to show him the hero he once was before his fall from grace(it's shown in the "Superman Unbound" DTV) , but since technically that was "Donner Zod" probably won't be the case. I do still think we will see Brainiac in the sequel, but I'd be surprised if he was mentioned or shown in this film.

This movie will fail because he's not wearing a stupid red Speedo.

^@ Admiral Young Unless they were doing what Superman The Movie did and setting up the villain for the second film in the first one; i.e. Brainiac would be to this movie what General Zod was to Superman: TM. But I think that's an extremely long shot.

About a month ago there were some spoilers by some guy who had allegedly been to a WB advanced screening. I don't have a link now but from what I remember

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

Brainiac though has also never been used in a live action film before (despite previous attempts) so it would make sense to use him in the sequel. Fans have been clamoring for him for ages it seems as well. I guess we'll have to wait and see, and under a month to go too! Also @Demotion...I've been saying for a long time now that this film seems to be structured similarly to "Batman Begins" and we all know who was teased at the end of that film

@SalvorHaldin that's an interesting thing if true.

^Oh yeah, it makes sense to use him in a sequel. I just don't think they'd want to echo S:TM by placing the villain for the second movie (here, Brainiac, there Zod) in the opening sequences of the first one. But I could be wrong.

It's most likely for merchandising, since we've seen the same painted style for Avengers, TDKR, and every other recent superhero movie.

Still though, as far as paintings go I think it's probably one of the coolest ones I've seen.
