^I have to disagree about Reeve.

"Going down."

Not to mention, "'Excuse me."

Yeah, anyone who thinks that Reeve "didn't seem to have that much fun" must have seen a different movie in 1978 than I did.

Not to mention the voiced-by-Reeve: "I ran." And his whole OTT performance as Clark.

We didn't see his "first flight" moment, but that was because the film glossed over it with that whole weird thing about spending 12 years hanging out with Jor-El in the Fortress. But we did see him more or less doing barrel rolls over Metropolis after his debut. Chris Reeve definitely injected a sense of fun into his performance...like being Superman was a private joke that only he and the audience were in on. Which brings up the whole bit of flying into space and smiling for the camera at the end of the movie....

They say that truth hurts. Sometimes it's just funny as hell.
Yeah, let's not just insult posters; let's drag everyone they've ever been out with as well. Should we insult their mothers next? Friends? Neighbours?
Depends. If they get all stompy and weepy and stuff it probably won't be much fun.

On the other hand ...

The Dark Man of Steel Rises just looks bad. Every clip makes it look worse.
That's the problem....you think that is what this movie is going to be...but you're wrong and your hatred of Nolan will not even allow you to see this movie more objectively.
But I don't see how what Kirk is doing is that much different from people here who appear to me to be preparing to "love on" the movie no matter what, simply because it isn't Superman Returns and because Chris Nolan is behind it. This reminds me of how people prepared (and did) "love on" Batman Begins simply because it wasn't Batman and Robin and because Chris Nolan was directing.

If the movie does suck, and I am hopeful that it won't, the question in my mind is; how many of you folks will be willing to say so, here -- especially with old Kirk55555 ready to bring the, "I told you so" cannons online?

I think it is better to go into a movie open minded than close minded. The reasons Kirk55555 is close minded are not rational. He hated the movie the moment Nolan was attached to the movie. He has never even given it a chance and when he views the trailer he is just engaging in confirmation bias.

I am no real big fan of Nolan myself, I do like his Batman movie although I have some big issues with them. That doesn't, however, make me turn my nose up at this movie without seeing it. I actually had some of kirk55555's concerns when I heard Nolan was attached to the mvoie. But from my viewing of the trailer my fears have been relieved rather than confirmed.

I really liked Superman Reurns so I am not liking what I see in this movie because it isn't Superman Returns. I like the movie from what I have seen so far. I have thought Cavill was an excellent choice for Superman and I was thrilled that Amy Adams was cast as Lois. I just love the new Superman suit and from the trailers I have seen it looks like the movie will have a lot of good action plus a good story.

I am also a pretty easy going movie viewer and have a reputation for liking movies that many do not. Heck, I liked Batman & Robin! It is a fun Batman movie. I am not a real nit-picky viwer. This movie would really have to be extremely bad for me not to like it and from all indication I really have no worries that I will not like it.

The only way to enjoy Batman & Robin is to view it as a sequel to the old Adam West TV show.

Yes! As a kid growing up in the 60s my first introduction to the Batman character was Adam West as Batman. I loved the show! So for me, Batman & Robin is just a higher budget movie done as homage to that series.

I could see the sequel capitalizing on how an alien like Superman could exist in a world like ours.

Lex Luthor could turn people.

"He's an alien. God knows what else he'll bring with him. We should banish him"

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

Not in the movie, but wouldn't this be a great wtf moment:

Lois interviewing Superman:

"So, what are the odds that you as an alien from a planet half a galaxy a way would look completely human?"

"Well, the parts of me you can see look human"

"Does that mean under the tights it's a different story?"

"That too, but more I meant that some things are not as they appear. For example, you know the phrase 'Talking out of your ass'? well......."

"eww".

I grew up in the 60s. My introduction to Batman was the Adam West show. To this day, even as I appreciate more serious versions of the character, I still love that show with a deep abiding passion as my "first" Batman and there will always be a part of me that considers Adam West the one true Caped Crusader.

...and I still think that movie sucked balls.
