    How does it feel - with The Dark Knight Rises and The Man of Steel novelizations - to reach more people than Alan Dean Foster with the Star Trek 2009 novelization?

    No need to apologize Greg. I understand you probably weren't allowed to saying back then. I'm kind of surprised this just popped out of no where so early. I think the TDRK announcement came much sooner to the film's release IIRC didn't it?

    Given that Foster novelized Star Wars, Alien, Aliens, and many, many others, I suspect he's still way ahead of me.

    Heck, Foster was writing bestselling novelizations while I was still in high school!

    Are you gonna add a scene in the novelization that explains where Joker is? :D

    I'm thinking I should probably shut up now. :)

    Hm. Why is it so blurry/grainy?

    Agreed. It's basically ripped from the Comic-Con trailer.

    Have you seen the teaser trailer? It's also pretty blurry and grainy.

    Not feeling anything great or cool about this.
    Seems very tame for a teaser poster. What are they trying to tell us?
    That Superman isn't above the law? The opposite of Batman. What's the message here and if it is that, *shrug* we know that about the character. Sell us on something with more razzle dazzle.

    Perhaps it's more the intrigue around why Superman is being arrested in the first place.

    I think it's also to show his alienation (since he is, after all, an alien).

    ^ I agree. For a second teaser poster it isn't anything spectacular but then I wasn't really expecting anything like that...they're probably saving the good stuff for the actual poster releases when they start up the full blown marketing next year, I actually don't mind it at all. The unlockable thing was a complete joke though IMO. Apparently fans unlocked it last weekend, and it went live accidently, it wouldn't work for several hours, and all we got was a lame TDKR fan collage before it was seemingly reset at like 80 percent and unlocked again I guess sometime early this morning.

    That's a great poster. The lens flare really ties it all together.
