    There's 2 different teaser trailers, one narrated by supermans step dad, mr kent
    The other is narrated by supermans real dad, Jor-El!

    Love the 2 different things they both say, seems like they're really getting into supermans character this time. Pretty pumped to see what Nolan and snyder can do with this, i have a lot of faith nolan will make sure this movie is awsome even if he isn't officially directing it lol

    Youtube links for both are here

    Saw a preview for this in the theatre, it may be the first superman movie I am interested in seeing.

    i always wondered why they never paid much attention to superman in terms of movie making. sure, they had the ones in the early 80s. then again a few years ago...but they all were horrible.

    this looks interesting.

    Superman 1/2 are fine, but Superman 3/4 and Returns aren't worth mentioning. I'm not huge on the suit in this one as it looks rather busy in terms of actual material, which may draw people's eyes to it vs. what's going on, but I'll have to see it in action and see if it hold true.

    Wouldn't Aluminum be a more efficient trailer material?




    Anyway, maybe this is the next installment of the theorized DC "Avengers" movie?

    I felt bad even posting it in there, but I figured if I mentioned Superman 4 I had to mention Returns :(

    On the plus side, I enjoyed the minimalist nature of these trailers. Nicely done. :yesway:

    Whether or not Zack Snyder is capable of directing something subtle, on the other hand, remains to be seen. :lol:

    I'm wondering if this won't be The Dark Knight: Superman Remix.

    Still, I'm interested. Superman generally is overpowered and pathetic, but there have been, IMO, some great fucking stories with him. I hope that's more of what they try to do here.

    thats the thing though. due to the soddy movies and cartoons based on superman, they pretty much have ruined superman to the public eye.

    a rewrite of the story would be a bit better.

    aside from spiderman/batman and other mortal heroes, superman is the only super hero with a legitimate weakness that can kill him. yet i find he has the biggest responsibility on his head (or at least going by what has been written by him).

    this new movie could be interesting.

    I really dig the almost tortured feeling the trailers portray. Hopefully they develop the story to show the pressure and responsibility he must feel having the fate of so many people on his head vs. the fun, playboyish Superman most all the movies portray. Make him more a real person with the actual weight of the world on his shoulders instead of a fun loving, girl chasing, immature dude who has to go out and do something important all the time that's getting in the way of chasing Lois Lane's skirt.

    There was a rumor last year that WB may reboot Batman...yet again. Whether there is any truth to it or not, who knows? That would be the only way I see a Justice League movie.

    The trailers for this are making me interested. And Superman is one of my least favorite super heroes.

    I don't know why it is a spoiler, but yeah it's official. They will. But I'm not surprised, that's how Hollywood works nowadays.

    exactly...supermans character was destroyed when they released the horrible movies, and then shows like Smallville didn't help either.

    suddenly a tortured soul becomes a chick flick...

    and to all you superman haters...stop watching chick-flicks!

    I hate Superman because he's boring as all fuck - he's white bread incarnate. He's got all these superpowers with one weakness and the only issue he really faces is being "unaccepted" because he's technically an alien but still, people praise Superman or they hate him and he still blends as Clark Kent.

    The only good story to be done with Superman was "Death of Superman" because people didn't think they do it (much like Batman's "Death in the Family") and then surprise! They did. But alas they recanted and brought him back. Aside from that the main Superman story they've ran is either: "Oh no, a new threat that initially gets the one up on Superman? How will he defeat him?" then when he ultimately does defeat him it becomes "Boy, Superman defeated that new REALLY strong guy - does that mean he's too strong for us to handle? What should we DO?!"

    but isnt that all super hero movies? in the end, they ALWAYS beat the bad guy.
    thor was getting beat up, and then he won
    captain america was getting beat up, and then he won
    iron man was getting beat up, and then he won
    batman was getting beat up, and then he won
    hulk
    green lantern
    even the guys from chronicle

    I'm saddened that I found this agreeable.

    Superman's whole feud and story with Braniac and the creation of Doomsday were the only really interesting fights.

    I was hoping Bizarro would be in this next one since the last time he was in one was how long ago?

    but nope, General Zodd, again.

    At least it's Michael Shannon playing Zod. If anyone can play crazy, he can. He's got the eyes.
