DarkJohnson: mhd: Brick-House: How does Superman shave?

[i46.tinypic.com image 442x329]

There needs to be a version where he's manscaping.

Click Click D'oh: 1. Put snakes on plane: Wings can create contrails, but you got me on how this is supposed to work. Maybe there is a factual explanation for it, but it doesn't look right, does it?

No they don't. Wings can create visible vortices or low pressure vapor. Both of which immediately dissipate once the pressure differentials that formed them diffuse. That's what makes the trans-sonic shock cone visible, and why it vanishes so quickly. Votices, like those that come from wingtips, flaps or flap track fairings persist longer due to the tight core of air circulation in them, but have a distinctive spiral shape to them. They are not what are being represented in the teaser.

Contrails are a manifestation of the rapid freezing of water vapor in engine exhaust. To form, they need particulate mater, such as burned fuel, to cling to. They can only be formed by combustion engines.

...So, either supes has rocket boots, ate a Chipotle before flying... or Hollywood doesn't understand the flashy CGI bits.


Sure, but put this together with the understanding that we don't know what enables Superman to fly, and you can begin to speculate about various remarkable features of the Superman anus and why he wears his underwear on top of his clothes.

soporific: So I'm hopeful about this one. And if it's better than the Singer movie, that's a big win right there.


A shot-for-shot remake of Superman III with Carrot Top in the Richard Pryor role would be better than the Singer movie.

Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: MBK: What a shiatty, shiatty teaser.

If they turn Superman into a dark, brooding hero...they deserve the POS that movie will be.

It will be a POS anyway. Superman is a crappy character.

robbiex0r: FabulousFreep: weapon13: Has anyone mentioned why Superman would have contrails chemtrails coming from his feet?

Atmospheric compression Link

approaching the sound barrier. The white halo is formed by condensed water droplets which result from the shockwave shedding from the aircraft.

Why would that happen 3 times? And why, after that, did he leave contrails?


Also, how can he fly?!

Click Click D'oh: Vortices are short duration phenomenon caused by air pressure differentials while exhaust contrails are caused by crystallized ice formed from water vapor freezing to particulate mater from combustion.

Can't say that I know what a Kryptonian's internal body temp is, but it's likely to be higher than the temperature in the upper atmosphere and moreso with the friction of air passing over a body at supersonic speeds. Heat + Cold air = Condensation. Additionally:

From Wiki: Contrails (play /ˈkɒntreɪlz/; short for "condensation trails") or vapour trails are long thin artificial clouds that sometimes form behind aircraft. Their formation is most often triggered by the water vapour in the exhaust of aircraft engines, but can also be triggered by the changes in air pressure in wingtip vortices or in the air over the entire wing surface.[1]

Reality is unrealistic.

I own Watchmen and 300 on DVD, but i will go buy every Zach Snyder movie on Blu-ray if at some point in this Supes fights a giant spider, even if just for a second.

Pslightly Psycho: The problem with making a good Superman movie is that the studios don't seem to want to invest in his more unfamiliar villains. I think all of us who know Supes from either the comics or the DCAU series would be excited to see the Man of Steel throw down with a bad guy on the big screen that's NOT Lex Luthor or another Kryptonian (although, I've got some ideas for Lex in a super suit). I've heard rumors our villain this time around is Zod...again. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Superman needs someone that can match his strength. But we've seen Zod before. How about Metallo, or Brainiac? Make up some super metal for them to be made out of and you've got yourself a showdown. Even better, you've got Lobo, Darkseid or Doomsday. I'd see a "Death of Superman" movie in a heart beat. I really think that The Avengers has opened the door for some of these to happen in the future. That Hulk vs. Thor fight was great. About as believable as you're ever going to get. That's our proof that CGI has gotten to the point were Superman, played by a man, can fight giant CG monsters without it looking completely fake and taking you out of the experience. Hopefully, some studio exec agrees.


Dear Hollywood, we have it boarded for you, sub in any villain that's a flying brick, and FILM THIS

puckrock2000: EZ1923: puckrock2000: Dalek Caan's doomed mistress: Putting it to the soundtrack of 'The Fellowship of the Ring' was kind of odd. Yes, everyone loves Gandalf and was sad when he fell, but why play his lament over a Superman trailer? Brought up some just bizarre imagery in my mind.

Because they're still early in production, and the full score hasn't been composed yet - this is pretty common for teasers which are released far ahead of the film's release date. LOTR trailers used parts of "Carmina Burana", the trailer for "Renaissance Man" used part of the score from "Stripes", and so on.

Which is a little disappointing.I mean, I get that it's a new Francoise, blah blah blah, but you're not going to do better than the John Williams score. You just aren't, and they shouldn't try.

Autocorrect sucks.

/wouldn't mind this Francoise being in the movie

Superman is like a really hot lady who is really, really bad in bed....except every now and then, the sex is amazing.

You keep going back because you think maybe, this time, it will be amazing (ala, All Star Superman), but in reality, you leave disappointed 95% of the time.

Like I said, if Banner were invincible, he wouldn't need to run. And the other villians created through the same technology wouldn't be able to die, either.


He runs because he wants to be left alone. Learn2Hulk.

ThatBillmanGuy: From what I took of the whole hitchhiking thing, is that he's heading north. And I guess the Crab Boat would also be the best way to get further at a certain point. So I think he's trying to get to the Fortress or where it will be made.


Or just product placement for the discovery channel. Probably hooks up with a troop of gold miners to make in to inland Alaska. Then uses their labor and machinery to build the fortress, and promptly murders all the witnesses.

IIRC contrails are actually water vapor, not engine exhaust, that is formed on wings at certain conditions. It's conceivable that the vacuum conditions in his wake created by his supersonic flight formed the contrails. Though I have no idea why there are two. Perhaps his boots? Perhaps the far edges of his cape? Perhaps squirrels in his pants?

DrMcNinja: Looks like it's going to be all dark and meeehhhh *waves arms *. That's the problem I had with the other one. Well, besides it being all baby-dady drama angsty.

I always thought they should go retro with it, Sky commander/Fleischer studio style.

Anypoop, it didn't look horrible. I just hope it's not going to be a depressing shiat fest. Oh. And superman needs to beat the crap out of very large robots. Why can't they figure that out?!
