    Just looking at it here, I would say it was fan made. I'm sure you can show me it isn't.. but that's what it looks like. It really does look like a shot from the bootleg of the comic-con trailer.

    That's basically because it is, as Sammy already pointed out.

    Pretty much what I expected the "reward" to be and as I stated earlier this unlockable thing was handled atrociously.

    It's only a teaser poster but I rather like it and it does make the movie look slightly more promising.

    I think it's less about Superman not being above the law and more about the world reacting to an unknown alien with superpowers. The fact he has handcuffs on though does tell us that at heart the Man of Steel Kent is still the same.

    I hope this little marketing fail won't hinder the movie's success. We all know DC and Superman NEED this to succeed.

    Even Iron Man 3 did a better "Click to Unlock" facebook campaign.


    I can't wait 15 years for another Superman restart >_>

    What marketing fail? A tiny easter egg on a website that %99 percent of the film going public won't even know existed? (the easter egg, not the website)

    It's not so much a marketing fail, just makes Warner Bros look dumb. This should have been released last weekend when the thing was originally unlocked. My point is that it was handled incredibly weird and makes Warner Bros look pathetic IMO. If they wanted to release the teaser poster, they should have released it outright like "Star Trek: Into Darkness" did last night.

    Sunday night into Monday seems to have been the time when we've got most of the major news for this film anyway.

    I like it. Though not quite as much as the STID poster.

    He looks great, and I'm a big fan of the suit!

    The poster looks like the cover to a terrible Superman story from the 80s or something.

    Sorry, but I'm sick of director's trying to stamp their own shit over what has worked in the comics for decades. They've ruined a potential JLA by letting Nolan run amock, Green Arrow is basically a watered down Batman-for-TV, they're too scared to do Wonder Woman properly, and now we've a dark moody Superman being arrested.

    In the meantime, Marvel are putting their comics on screen and raking in billions.

    It's not rocket science.

    Green Lantern may have been a terrible movie but it at least tried and wasn't ashamed of the source material.

    I've never been a fan of the Superman movies, I love the character in the comics, but the movies were either cheesy or too politically correct (Superman Returns).

    I hope that this version of Superman is better.

    Agree. Though, I still think the suit needs a splash of red at the midsection, near the Apollo's belt, to break up the blue. Not necessarily the "underpants" but some sort of red coloring integrated into the body of the suit.

    I really love the new suit. It makes the traditional red undies look strange to me now.

    I agree he needs some red about waistish. The old red undies look stupid, but the new 52 has a red belt-like structure on their main and Earth-2 Supermen, and it looks awesome.

    :confused: Where do you get politically correct from? I've been listening to SR-haters complaining that it made him look like a stalker, which is hardly what you'd call politically correct.

    Yeah PC isn't a term that I see connected with "Superman Returns" either.

    ^ I think a lot of people don't actually know what it means and throw it about as a term of general abuse for movies they don't like.

    The PC complaint for Returns is usually related to Perry White's "truth, justice, all that stuff!" line.
