I'm sorry, I asked for a Superman movie. This is what I get? Nowhere in this trailer do I see Real Estate mentioned.

He's still wearing a cape? Didn't he hear what happened to Strato-Girl?

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.


Well Supes has to evacuate somewhere and there isn't a toilet on earth that can handle that sort of pressure or volume. Sure they could make him a Kryptonite commode, but that would kill him.

texdent: Desquamation: puckrock2000: Yet another origin story? Is there anyone left who still doesn't know the origin of Superman?

Isn't he avenging his murdered parents or something?

No, that's The Wonder Twins you're thinking of.


No, they were bitten by a radioactive spider.

TWO!

TWO radioactive spiders.

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.

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.

It's "piqued".

It's a mute point.


I think you mean a moo point.

Darth_Lukecash: thornhill: Darth_Lukecash: thornhill: Darth_Lukecash: voran: So...is this a reboot 'origin' story where people are encountering Superman for the 'first time'? And...is he fighting other kryptonians? :)

Every generation does their version of Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Tarzan, Sherlock Homes, King Arthur, Robin Hood, Superman and Batman.

Hell, Doctor Who reimagines itself with each incarnation and producers.

Except when people re-stage Shakespeare they completely reimagine the setting in order to try and gain new insight into the characters. With the comic book movies, the origin story remains mostly the same.

if you stage Romeo and Juliet with Juliet going off to college and Romeo opening a headship and marrying a girl name moonflower- it ceased to be Romeo and Juliet.

Superman must come from a doom planet of Krypton. Spider-Man must be bitten by a radioactive spider. Batman must have his parents killed and influence by Bat symbols.

Otherwise-you wouldn't be telling the story.

I guess you've never seen:

Westside Story
Ran
Throne of Blood
Forbidden Planet
Kiss Me Kate

I have...and the interpretation differed- but the story largely remain the same.


What about the song? Does it remain the same?

Alphax: I'd just followed a similar link on Facebook.

It has.. potential. I noticed the armed soldiers didn't put their guns down in his presence.. they're unsure of him.


Silly soldiers. Superman never worries about the bullets, but he'll duck if you throw the gun.
