[trailer] Man of Steel

This is billed as a fully trailer but it feels more like a teaser trailer to me. I am not a big fan of the sad moppy tone of it. Hopefully the full movie will try to capture the coolness of the superpowers rather than the orphan, outcast, alone angle of Superman. As I recall in the comic he didn't spend a lot of time feel sad for himself (unlike that whiner batman)

I'll still see it. I like Amy Adams a lot more than Kate Bosworth as Lois. I'm assuming she's Lois and not Lana.

I wonder how Superman shaves? Mirrior and a laser?

Close - mirror and his laser vision.

Closer. Piece of the ship he came in as a baby and heat vision..

I guess it shows how much of a Superman fan I am, but... What's the difference between Lois and Lana?

Fleshed out character/love of life and high school crush, respectively. If you watch Smallville (don't), Lana is the one that all the psychos fall for.

They are different people.

Gotta say the trailer gave me chills. The good kind.
I'm not a fan of Superman, but I like the approach of coming to terms with who he can be, vs keeping to himself like his father suggests in the trailer.

The cast is top notch and I +1,000,000 the choice of Amy Adams over Kate Bosworth. Amy Adams has that "girl next door" charm I find irresistible.

This looks pretty bad to me. Dark tone, origin stuff, villain we've seen before. And the costume is just too... much.

Although, keeping my expectations low seems to work for me nowadays. Hopefully this surprises me.

Prediction: This will make 600m and will be considered a failure.

I'm intrigued but not super excited yet. I still don't think that the new actor playing Superman is really muscular enough, but then none of them really have been.

IMDB lists Amy Adams as being Lois Lane.

The only way I'd see yet another Superman movie is if it was Red Son.

I don't know if you look at him in these shots from an EW story he looks pretty ripped. http://entertainment.inquirer.net/22885/from-%E2%80%98unluckiest-man-in-hollywood%E2%80%99-to-superman

Wait, is this franchise getting rebooted yet again? Is Superman the new Batman for movies?

Didn't you always want to know Superman's origin story? That's really a part of his life that few mediums have tackled.

This.

When this one tanks, how many more reboots does Superman get?

In the comics he gets a new one every so often. I doubt his cinematic history will be any different.

I think this looks awesome. Can't wait.

Same. I understand the cynicism given the past, but I'm intrigued by a Superman who actually feels something beyond being a big Boy Scout and loving America. That part with him as a kid... Where he'd totally have trouble with hearing his own mother, that was heartbreaking.

I predict no less than 3 slow mo fight sequences.

I still think Michael Shannon is an odd choice for Zod. I loved him in Take Shelter. That was one of my favorite movies that year. But I don't know about this.

As many as it takes. This is the future a billion Avenger dollars bought.

That said, I like Superman. I'm still not sure Snyder can pull it off, but the trailer is encouraging. I just dread Summer 2018, when everyone's all super psyched to see Moon Knight 2 and Booster Gold Begins.

Well it looks better than the last one. I'll give it a chance.

Apparently it's either a contractual obligation or a legal one to prevent copyright ownership from leaving the studio.

So tired of Superman origin crap. C'mon for once advance the story and show more interesting bad guys:( At least its Zod instead of Luther this time.

He's buff, but lacks the broad chest that I've come to expect from Supes.

I thought that too - until the Amazing Spiderman. And now I don't think that.

Is he going to sell Superman Irons?

I didn't quite think about it, but this is very true. We know how he got here. Come up with something new already. I thought the same think about the Amazing Spiderman movie. Yeah, yeah, bit by spider, Uncle Ben dies. Tell a new story!
