Saw the trailer and only one word describes it: Underwhelming.

I'm not even comparing this to the "Iron Man 3" trailer, even compared to the "Dark Knight Rises" and "The Avengers" trailer this was...meh. A trailer should be getting me giddy to watch it; I can't even muster the strength to be interested in even getting excited about it.

Superman really is the lamest super hero. He is invincible except for this one kind of green rock that hurts him? Unless this movie involves kyrptonite, nothing can hurt him so where is the danger in him not being able to save the day? The Doomsday/Reign of Supermen storyline was the only interesting thing in the entire run of the comics and even that they deus ex machina'd the ending by making him none of the original 4 posers. There is zero depth to the Superman character and there is no reason he should be as popular as he is

Also, taking off your glasses is the dumbest/laziest disguise ever, and we are all dumber for accepting it as part of the premise

Yet another origin story? Is there anyone left who still doesn't know the origin of Superman?

I'm a little surprised there are people in the thread saying the trailer didn't flesh out any of the story. To me, it laid out the entire premise.

I would argue the antagonist of the story is not Zod, but humanity's fear. Having Pa Kent wanting Clark to hide his powers and stay out of the spotlight (which is probably what convinces Clark to work on a remote fishing boat) is his intuition that if the Earth discovered that not only did aliens exist, but they were all powerful beings, they would be terrified. Then Superman comes around and they are indeed afraid (hence the military taking him "prisoner"). But then another alien (Zod) shows up who justifies humanity in their fear. He's violent, ruthless, and loves power. He loves he new power the yellow sun bestows on him as a Kryptonian, in particular.

This leads to the showdown where Superman fights Zod. It's a battle to earn the trust of humanity, keep the benevolent spirit of Jor-El/Krypon alive, and become Earth's champion.

I could be completely wrong of course. But the trailer convinced me I'll find out in the theater.

Mentalpatient87: I get the "protect Ma and Pa Kent" thing, too. My solution is to squirrel the loved ones away, probably pretty extreme in terms of how far. Also, make it a point to get the message across that killing my loved ones isn't going to stop me from butt-farking your soul.


The thing that villains never seem to get about "hold your loved ones hostage" is that if you actually kill them, the most powerful being on earth is now enraged beyond reason AND HAS NOTHING TO LOSE.

I'd like to see the equivalent of something like this at some point during the movie.

I happen to like some of the movies he's directed. I especially enjoyed Wyatt Earp.

I think the music made it a little less interesting. If they had used something similar to John William's score there would be a lot more excitement. The music for this one sounded a lot like Elysium from The Gladiator.


Like the other trailers I mentioned I couldn't listen to them, could only watch them.

"The Avengers": WANT
"The Dark Knight Rises": WANT
"Iron Man 3": WANT
"Man of Steel": meh.

That's not exactly hopeful AFAIC; if I couldn't get up for the trailer with just the scenes...there's not much hope for this movie I'm afraid. I could be wrong as I was on "The Amazing Spider-Man".

Wayne 985: Aside from dark visuals, it looks good. Good effects, good acting, good story. I love superhero movies that question what it means to be a hero and have some depth to them.

Never was a huge fan of Superman, but this looks good. Curious to see more Zod, however.


I want to see more:

LeroyBourne: I was really hoping they'd go back into editing and get rid of those chem trails. Breaking the sound barrier is fine, I get it, he's going really fast, but the chem trails are really dumb.

Darth_Lukecash: I actually found that intriguing. Pa Kent was worried about Clark's abilities making him an outcast. This sounds like an actual conversation that Father who has an all powerful son may actually have. There may be no easy answer.


Pa Kent was always the rock that Clark Kent was built off of. That's what made Smallville interesting. He was there just long enough to get Clark started in the right direction. A few times they played with the idea of Clark being raised by someone other than the Kents and just how bad that would be.

No matter how messed up Clark got his father's teaching would bring him back around. In tv, comics, or movies. Pa Kent was the backbone

And yes Pa Kent was Clark's father.

Are you surprised? It's a Zach Snyder film with Chris Nolan producing. It's going to be a dark, "more realistic" version of Superman similar to the Nolan Batman films. Whether this is a good or bad thing is up to you.

SkylineRecords: AntonChigger: T.rex: Looks awesome... I was one of the first to proclaim Bryan Singer's version as crap on IMDB message boards, and was banned for it. Nobody believed me.

Csb.

In all fairness, he was absolutely right. That movie WAS crap. Right on par with Matrix Revolutions.


Stop being hypothetical. I'm positive they stopped making Superman movies after Superman II and that they never got around to any sequels to The Matrix.

Looked way too muddy, the operatic/choral music just made me miss John Williams theme for Superman and the "maybe" line better be a trailer editing trick and not something Pa Kent says about a bus full of school kids drowning.

Too dark. Not in tone or mood, but brightness. Looks like they filmed the whole thing in Seattle.
