You know, my favorite moment in that last ad is Clark saying to the guy he just saved from certain death, "You okay?"

I liked that moment too. He's is letting the military know that he is a good guy.

Wow, that's some serious heat-vision Superman's using in that trailer. I'm glad to see some actual beams again, but I'm not sure I wanted it to look THAT powerful.

I particularly love the shot in the 8th TV spot where Jor-El opens up his robe to reveal the family crest and says "This symbol stands for hope." Just brilliant. I have a feeling that Crowe is just going to be on the button as Jor-El.
Yeah I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised at the genuine emotion that seems to be coming through in these trailers. There's none of that over-stylized and artificial feel that we usually get from Snyder's movie trailers, and the characters actually seem surprisingly believable and real.

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

I don't know where to start praising these trailers.

The spectacle? The SFX? The action? The way Henry totally sells the 'You okay?' and 'Excuse me' moments? Russell Crowe (who I haven't liked in anything for years) as Jor-El? Costner as Jonathan Kent? Michael Shannon? The way Snyder seems to have made a film that makes redundant all those 'slower than a speeding bullet' jokes (of which I'm as guilty as anyone)?

Can't wait.

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

That last TV (#7) spot was decent. At the very least, it didn't make me think of Johnathan Kent and the drowning of children Superman seemed to not be as depressed as I thought he'd be, but being somewhat normal with two lines in a tV spot doesn't mean he won't start copying bale's Batman for most of the movie (and bearded clark argues for dark, depressed Superman more than two lines from a trailer argue against).

Also, Lois is starting to get annoying, and it has nothing do do with her lines. The trouble with casting people that look nothing like more common versions of the characters in stuff like this is that it gets confusing. I expect Lois to have black or very dark brown hair, so when I'm not thinking about it I can't tell if she's in a trailer/tv spot or not. Thats not always a problem if the actor/actress is memorable (like Laurence Fishbure, I'd have never picked him as Perry but he's easily identifiable) but Amy Adams is so bland and not Lois like that its honestly hard to tell in a fast trailer/TV spot if its Lois or random women in certain clips.

You do know her father is a general in the US Army and she grew up as an Army brat? That alone makes it likely she'll grab some sort of weapon and actually know how to use it (well, more likely than just about any other non-soldier character in the movie).

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

I've never been much of a Superman fan, but have to say that I don't think you could've put together a more stellar cast and crew than was assembled for Man of Steel, and I'm actually looking forward to seeing it.

I just watched the third full-scale trailer, BTW, and really like the tone and 'look' Snyder et al have brought to the table; it reminds me of 300 and 30 Days of Night crossed with Barman Begins and The Amazing Spider-Man, with a bit of The Avengers and Spider-Man 2 tossed in as well.

Yeah, I know that, and I'm all for Lois being more than a damsel in distress. It was just a comment after seeing Jor-El, who's supposed to be just a scientist, look like he's about to laucnh into a action movie star rampage against the bad guys with his stupid armor and weird (I'm assuming laser?) gun. I could probably have replaced Lois with Ma Kent or something in the comment. Still, army brat =/= working knowledge on using a rocket launcher. Besides, it doesn't look like a rocket launcher would be very helpful, anyway. My point (about Jor-El stupidly being turned into a fighter and wether or not the movie will keep doing that) still stands.

My anticipation for Man of Steel has gone up from 4-5 out of the big movies to possibly even #2 now. It's an astoundingly impactful trailer in Imax 3D.

I have to laugh that you can be so harshly judgmental on a character who has only been flashed on the screen for seconds from a few very fast paced trailers!

Anyway, if you have watched the Adventures of Superman, when Noel Neill played Lois Lane she had red hair through out the rest of the series. In the last season, according to the commentary on of the episodes, she had to dye it and even brighter red.

I'll never understand this fanboy need to have every character in a superhero movie look exactly like their comic book counterpart (especially when it comes to female characters like Lois or Mary Jane).
