    ^@ Admiral Young Unless they were doing what Superman The Movie did and setting up the villain for the second film in the first one; i.e. Brainiac would be to this movie what General Zod was to Superman: TM. But I think that's an extremely long shot.

    About a month ago there were some spoilers by some guy who had allegedly been to a WB advanced screening. I don't have a link now but from what I remember
    He said they state in the movie that Luthor is working on a new AI that will revolutionize technology and is unlike anything Metropolis has ever seen.

    Brainiac though has also never been used in a live action film before (despite previous attempts) so it would make sense to use him in the sequel. Fans have been clamoring for him for ages it seems as well. I guess we'll have to wait and see, and under a month to go too! Also @Demotion...I've been saying for a long time now that this film seems to be structured similarly to "Batman Begins" and we all know who was teased at the end of that film :)

    @SalvorHaldin that's an interesting thing if true.

    ^Oh yeah, it makes sense to use him in a sequel. I just don't think they'd want to echo S:TM by placing the villain for the second movie (here, Brainiac, there Zod) in the opening sequences of the first one. But I could be wrong.

    It's most likely for merchandising, since we've seen the same painted style for Avengers, TDKR, and every other recent superhero movie.

    Still though, as far as paintings go I think it's probably one of the coolest ones I've seen.

    ^ I agree. The Comic book artist Jock has done a really great Zod poster.

    As for the next official poster...probably will come out soon I should imagine. I think the last poster came out shortly after the second trailer.

    I was afraid that I would miss John William's main theme, it is so iconic, but I really like what Hans has done here. My hat is off to him, he really had large shoes to fill!

    I'm guessing he's wearing his underwear under his suit, where it belongs. ;)

    I think he goes commando to be honest. You don't want visible underwear lines with such tight pants.

    I am so used to seeing this new suit that all of the old pics with Superman wearing his undies on the outside now look very strange!

    If what he is wearing is supposed to be covered in armour then technically his entire outfit is underwear : /

    Trailer looks great. Not a fan of the shaky cam.

    He could use a bit of a tan. He looks almost feverishly pale there. Of course, there could be a story reason for that.

    Or bad fishing season and therefore he couldn't afford spray tan.

    Is the suit supposed to be like the armoured suit in the latest comic incarnation?
