Amazing marketing. Probably the trailer of the year for me.
Yeah, right. Thanks for exposing us to the appalling theme of this idiot movie- so now Superman is the new Jesus Christ????
HE’S needed in Calgary….
Still not sold on the movie or the actor.
I am willing to give Henry Cavill a chance, but his past acting performances have been very mediocre.
really? then you go enjoy pirates 29 or hangover still or whatever- the rest of us will enjoy superman- with a terrific actor
You’re quite the trendsetter, aren’t you? Eagerly anticipating this very first film version of the Superman origin story!
I can’t believe it but I am looking forward to seeing this Superman film.
Awesome. If we had Superman he could have stopped all the tornadoes in Okalahoma and everywhere else. We need a Superman now. Where is he?
Playing Wide receiver for the Detroit Lions.
It looks amazing and I don’t even like Superman.
I don’t even want to see any more new footage because I want to be surprised when I see the movie.
Yup, that excited.
The real star is Hams Zimmer and his amazing soundtrack. Goosebumps.
Is everyone forgetting this is directed by Zack Snyder? You could not force me at gunpoint to see one of his movies. I dunno…maybe the masses will like it.
Zack Snyder is a visual genius. 300, Watchmen, Sucker Punch, all masterpieces. I guess you will be missing out, then.
sucker punch — a masterpiece? Watchman — a masterpiece? Both we’re terrible films — big flops, terribly realized.
300 looked cool — but how do you not credit Frank Miller for that? It looked exactly like the graphic novel, and was almost word for work Frank Miller dialog?
Gee, I wish we, the masses, were as smart as you, Kenny.
Looks great to me.
I agree with John, Kenny sure must be so much smarter than the rest of us. I am looking forward to a great movie!
Henry is cute and all but sorry I see superman as an American Hero. I know he’s an alien and all, but ….. Baseball, Apple pie and Superman… now fish and chips and warm beer. Another question….. Will the the Superman curse affect him?
Cue the politically-correct autoreply that Superman is actually an alien and how he’s not really American but belongs to the world, blah blah blah. Never mind the fact that it’s his solid Midwestern upbringing that makes him a great hero. Meanwhile you’ll never see an American James Bond. I hear you.
This movie looks amazing, it might actually be THE movie of the Summer of 2013. WB’s has done a great promotional job and word of mouth all over LA is nothing short of brilliant. Keeping my fingers crossed.
That’s what this symbol means. Hope. “S” is for hope. There was another costume with an “H” on it but I left it in the dryer and.. well… “S” is for hope.
Why is everything so dark and gray? Especially Superman’s suit? It’s so depressing and unappealing! And there doesn’t seem to be any sense of humor. Me thinks this’ll tank.
Diet you get the memo? Audiences want their superheroes dark and depressing. Sorry ill pass on this one.
Marvel says hi.
It’s because WB thinks the movie must be just like The Dark Knight in order to be a hit.
My fiance says the same thing, Superman is supposed to be in bright, primary colors. I, on the other hand, am willing to give it a shot.
Sorry but you’re wrong. It’s already made its budget back and is not even out yet
Still curious to see what the time length is. Looks like an epic scale. It might very well weigh in at two and a half hours- which is just fine by me!
2 hours and 23 minutes.
I agree…no more trailers, they’re almost giving too much away. I have huge expectations for this film. I’m a Marvel guy, and while Iron Man 3 was good, they still don’t know how to do a great finale in those films (hey loo, 100 suits of remote control IM armor!)…I expect MOS to blow it away…not box office wise, but as just being an enjoyable film…esp after that crappy Brandon Routh film (not his fault, just an awful script).
sweet! a couple more of these and i wont have to pay to see the movie!
Amazin’!! If Brendan Roth can lift an iceberg of Kryptonite after a sliver of it almost killed him, then any and EVERYTHING about this movie will be completely EPIC!!!
This could work. I was very skeptical for a long time. Henry was great in The Tudors but I just didn’t see him as Superman. Us comicbook geeks were even more worried that Superman’s grandeur and power was too much for the new vulnerable and troubled super hero. But I think Snyder and Nolan have maybe come up with a way to make Supes seem more like us my pointing out Quentin Tarrantino’s theory of the hero. He’s not one of us. Also Shannon will make a great villain.
The trailers aren’t convincing me to see this movie. I’ll wait for the reviews before making a decision to see it.
Feigned outrage to appear on cue in 3. . . 2. . . 1. . . People, didn’t we already address this stuff when Superman Returns had the ill-conceived “Truth, Justice, and. . . all that stuff.”
True Superman geeks know the line didn’t originate from the comics. It was from the radio show (still hugely successful in its own right). And even then, it was a later revision. The original one? “…Truth, justice, and tolerance.” Yes, you heard right; circa WW2. This Superman fighting for the American Way stuff is a circa WW2 addition to the character’s canon, developed well after his comic book roots had established him within the pop psyche. But, even still, this “new” element is itself over sixty years, so we can’t quibble too much against its lack of historical relevancy to the character.
Is it a big deal Cavill is not American? No. Not really. But, yes, there is something vaguely unseemly about it. The previous commenter is correct that we will NEVER see an American actor playing James Bond, and it’s the same sort of thing. But, here, there’s no problem with Brits playing Captain AMERICA; or Superman (with his “American Way” motto). I guess there’s two ways to take this. Either we do have a more culturally tolerant society, or despite what we all know and love, England still just views us as another colony.
I am certain of one thing, this movie will need to capture the embodiment of hope that Superman exhibits. I think there will be a similar mirrored experience with this movie to Superman II that Star Trek Into Darkness tried to do with Wrath of Khan; in that I’m quite sure there will be that one scene when Superman returns, post-Superman beat-down, to win the day. We might not be dealing with any loss of powers because he wants to be human, but I guarantee that there will be a Rocky type moment when Superman is free to kick Zod’s ass. And it will be that moment that tells the audience that this is the Superman we all know, love, and expect. And yes, there needs to be that moment, or this movie fails. Remember, darkness is a pointless abstraction if you don’t have light as a contrast. It is just a hope at this time, but I remain convinced we will be given the light to contrast all of this literal and metaphorical drabness — both in visual and apparently thematic style. I’m pretty sure that they understand this. I mean, hell, even Michael Bay knew that regardless of how far he strayed into the Transformers franchise, he had to deliver on one simple point: Optimus must get good face time fighting Megatron. If Bay is capable of such understanding, then I’m sure Snyder knows he must deliver on a Superman saves the day moment.
For all this talk of darkness, remember that in Superman: The Movie, Lois died. Sure, by the end of the movie, she’s alive, but she still died, in relatively gruesome fashion being crushed by an earthquake. For all of its playful lightheartedness, The Movie had a really dark several minutes of the climax. Superman can either stop the missile or save Lois. He does what Superman was supposed to do: he stops the missile, but has to sacrifice Lois. And to hammer this home, we are given a close-up of Lois’ dead body in a car. But, hell, he’s also Superman — so he just changes time.
I’m coming around. It was that last “You Are Not Alone” trailer that did this. I can better understand the context of the Superman in handcuffs visual. And this is now the movie I’m most looking forward to.
