Not worth opening a new thread over, so asking here instead.

At the end of MOD, the government is looking for Superman.
They know what he looks like, they know he is around 33 years old and that he is from Kansas. Clark told them himself.
His Do they not figure pur his Clark Kent persona at this point?

How does a government that is distrustful of him not know if that is misdirection?

Anyhow, This is a universe where a pair of glasses are the perfect disguise!

Lois was able to figure it out through some pretty basic entry-level foot work. You'd think the government would have no problem at all.

An incompetent US government is the most realistic part of Man of Steel.

Well, who says they don't figure it out? We'll have to wait and see. I think the MOS people have suggested that it might turn out to be kind of an open secret with people like Perry White, etc.

In what way were they incompetent? Superman's existence had only been officially confirmed for all of a single day in MoS, and there was an immediate global crisis that kind of occupied their attention after that. All things being equal, despite getting their asses kicked for the most part (which can't be helped, since they were facing near indestructible alien foes), I thought the military's showing in MoS was actually pretty good. Certainly nothing like the military incompetence shown in the '98 Godzilla, for instance.

Besides, we don't know Superman's situation in the new movie. If it's a variation on the general theme of The Dark Knight Returns (which the armor in the teaser hints toward), Superman might be working for the government in some respect, which may be what leads to the conflict between him and Batman.

And I actually prefer that idea myself. Not only is it something different than we've seen before, but it makes the world feel at least a little more believable and real if the people who work next to him all day (and the government that would use every resource to hunt him down) are already aware of who he is. And don't have to look like complete idiots for not noticing.

It's easier to accept that the larger public wouldn't know, because they'd probably never expect an all-powerful super being to slum it as a lowly newspaper reporter in the first place.

C'mon, I thought that was a good joke!

But really, everything that went down in Smallville would be a giant red flag to investigators and all the strange things with the Kent kid over the last 30 years would lead them right to Clark, just like Lois found. But instead, the government spends at least 11 million dollars on a drone.

The military was superbly potrayed. The government is a different animal.

Well, at least after the threat was gone their seemed to be a bit of a time jump where the military tried to spy out Superman with a drone which he promptly trashed to make a point.

Didn't look they were cooperating with him (yet).
That's what I meant, before trying to use high tech surveillance on him they should have done some investgating first.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Why would Warner Bros not want their teaser clip of Batman v Superman to be officially available online? Is it because they want the fans to continue thirsting for more? If that's the idea, it's working.

Probably the same reason they put out a 15-second teaser for the teaser trailer for the last Hobbit movie... (hint: two syllable word, starts with "stu", ends with "pid")

Maybe the studio thinks they can get rid of every shaky, blurry cellphone video that shows up on the web. I don't think they can. So why not post a perfect, high resolution clip online?
