I preferred the previous trailer. This one looks like it was cut to attract the action-action-pow-pow crowd.

I saw the newest MOS trailer with the Zod voice over in a theater tonight and HATED it! It was a bunch of fighting scenes and explosions that made this movie look like a generic action flick. I much prefer the third trailer with Jor'El's goodbye opening, it had so much better music too.

You know Superman is supposed to be about story PLUS action, right?

If the action is like the action in Superman Returns the movie is in trouble...



Okay, cheap shot.

The terrible trailer isn't stopping me from seeing this movie. I'll just pretend the latest trailer doesn't exist, and the Jor'EL trailer was the final one.

Well it's not like Superman got his start in or starred in a comic book called "Action Comics" for decades or anything.

^^Insert Super Triple Bypass joke here....

Any trailer only emphasizes a select portion of the film, and we all knew there was going to be more action in this flick. I'm not going to let the latest one change the good vibe that I got off the prior trailer, which definitely seemed more "whole package".

Deborah Snyder talks a bit about some of the aspects of "Man of Steel".

You know there's a movie that goes with these trailers that would have both scenes in them, right? They didn't remove the Jor-El scenes from the movie.

The superman movies have always been giant advertising commercials


Superman 1 had Cheerios. Superman 2 had Marlboro, coca cola and KFC

The Carl's jr commercial was even directed by zack synder

You know I was just judging the trailers, right? I haven't said anything about the movie being good or not.

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

Did that TV spot have Jor-El talking to Hobo Clark (I will always refer to stupid beared Superman as hobo clark, even though he most likely isn't actually a hobo)? Also, is the promotional stuff for the movie just going out of its way to remind me of its stupidest scene any of the trailers/tvspots had (Johnathon Kent: Supporter of child drowning)?

As for the trailer, I'm not a fan of the stupid tV interference stuff, like someone is giving you a message through your TV. Zod wanting Superman so much (instead of just ruling the world) is kind of weird (so is him somehow having an army or tech instead of just him using superpowers to be evil) but I won't count that against the trailer since the movie could have a bunch of legitimate reasons for Zod wanting him and seeming to have an army/dangerous tech.

When it comes to the makers of the movie, I've lightened a little bit on Nolan (damn Inception and Memento for being awesome) but this movie still doesn't look very good. It would be hilarious if I don't like it more because of Snyder's influence instead of Nolan's. That said, its still giving me a Dark Knight/Rises vibe, and the action scenes aren't really taking away from that. Also, I just thought of this, what happened to Jor-El just being a genius scientist? Does everyone need to be an action hero in this? I wonder if Lois will pick up some fallen soldiers rocket launcher and start attacking the bad guys Some of the scenes in the trailer also make it look like its trying (poorly) to rip off the avengers, but thats probably just the trailer editing, I hope. Its not going to beat Avengers, it doesn't have the talent in any area to do that. I hope its not trying to rip it off with the alien invasion.

So, its for the Michael Bay/JJ Abrams crowd?
