Because contrails aren't created by jet technology.
By water vapor from jet engines, or by the pressure differences in the vortex around each wingtip.

The "or" there lets the air out (so to speak) of the "does he have jet engines" question.

Contrails are created by the condensation of water vapor, like any other cloud.

Yep. Any flying object (or moving object, really) creates a wake in the air behind it. A man flying at supersonic speeds is going to create a LOT of air disturbance in his wake especially as air is moved around him, gets compressed behind him, condensing water in the atmosphere into a visible vapor.

I loved the trailer. Not as awesome as the Comic-Con trailer, but damn, I'm really excited for this.

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

So, was the little kid in the trailer supposed to be Clark? If so, who is he imitating by wearing the towel cape? Captain Marvel?

That was Young Clark. Don't think he was meant to be imitating anyone, it's obviously supposed to imply the imagery of children playing as Superman, as well as foreshadowing Clark becoming Superman at the same time. It is possible that Clark has been influenced by someone though, too early to tell at this point. That was one of my favorite scenes in the teaser.

It could be Clark, but it could just as easily be some generic footage filmed only for the teaser to create a certain mood. Just like the shot of the water or the bird (which I doubt will be in the movie).

Hell, the Trek movie had a whole teaser with a guy welding on top of the Enterprise, which looked like it cost a fortune and STILL didn't appear in the movie! Lol

Why wouldn't it be Young Clark? That shot is shown right after the shot of the photograph of Jonathan and Clark. Plus later on we see him standing in the Superman pose with the same dog that is with adult Clark.

Why Clark is participating in Deadliest Catch I'm a bit curious.
Before settling in Metropolis, Clark Kent travels the world to figure out his place in it. That's been an aspect of the comics for a long time now and the movie is following suit.
If I had to guess, I'd say he's either (a) on assignment for a story( which I doubt) or (b) the fortress is still in the Artic and he's either working his passage there by working on the boat or he's working on the boat to escape Smallville and accidentally finds out that the Fortess is near and leaves the boat. Either way, he has to hide his powers while on the boat. The third option is he's just on the boat temporarily and then moves on to some other job.

WB, for all intents and purposes, must be run by the stupidest retards in the history of Hollywood currently. I mean, here you are, with a flagship movie for this Summer, TDKR, that will literally pull each and every eyeballs there are in the world for the next two weeks. Then you have another flagship movie launching next year, MoS, an item with which you failed to (re?)launch a franchise 6 years ago. And horribly failed to launch GL as a franchise last year.

And ALL they could muster for a teaser trailer for their next year's flagship movie, before your bigass flagship movie this year, is this absolute dreck of a teaser trailer? Really? How could it have hurt even a bit if the far superior ComicCon trailer was released this week? They need a change in WB's marketing department.

Which is exactly my point. What is he playing as if there is no Superman figure for him to imitate? In a world without superheroes with capes, where do the kids get the idea?

Well, remember that they've got this little film from New Zealand coming out in December. I imagine we'll get something meatier then.
