I liked Superman Returns well enough, but so far this looks better. Maybe Costner's voice-over had a good effect. I am curious more than anything. I wonder if Michael Sheen will bring the same douchebaggery to Zod that Terence Stamp did. And Russell Crowe as Jor-El? :-?

Also, no disrespect to the awesomeness that is Gene Hackman's acting, but I liked Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor. Even if the movie was mediocre and every other actor sucked. Just think, had Bryan Singer not left X3 for it, how much better that movie would have been. Not saying it was bad, except maybe for Juggernaut, which wasn't really Vinnie Jones' fault. Then again, he's my favorite X villain, so I was expecting near perfection.

Thanks!

Some points I'd like to address from other posts:

- Snyder has said this Superman would be more vulnerable and have altered powers, so he wouldn't appear overpowered. I'm not sure what I think about that right now, but it can only make the movie more interesting. The Marc Webb Spider-Man seemed more vulnerable than the Sam Raimi incarnation, and I liked the new one better.
- This movie is intended to be darker, more serious, and less campy than other versions. It might take on a similar vibe to Batman Begins, which has been said by those who saw the longer trailer at SDCC. From what I see when people write about Superman on the Internet, a lot think he can't be taken seriously. I've heard the word "pansy" being thrown around to describe him. So, here's your darker, more serious Superman.
- Having said the above, I can safely assume General Zod will be a very brutal, formidable villain, and having said that, he should have extreme douchebaggery.
Please note: If you think I may be joking, I probably am.

Yes. A lot of people are saying this, and I think it's intended. Superman Returns was generally a failure, but the Batman trilogy was a huge success. Why not take the same route with Superman that Batman took? Superman used to be largely popular, but he's been stabbed with Kryptonite and kicked off a ledge with the Batman trilogy and Marvel movies, as well as the flop mentioned above. I can't imagine this movie could be bad after a sad decade for Superman. I'm beginning to think kids don't know who he is anymore, so I hope this will be a good revival like Iron Man was. Heck, when I was in grade school I was the only kid who thought Superman was cool.

I definitely believe Superman can still soar. I am a big fan of Superman and he is my favorite amongst all of the superheroes we all know and love. I believe that DC comics is a spectrum of characters which reside inside the polarities of Batman and Superman. Superman being on the more 'brighter' end of the spectrum and Batman of course on the more darker end. I don't think Superman should be presented in a darker view point because it just doesn't suit him. If anyone has ever read the short series entitled 'Public Enemies', which is a Batman/Superman team-up story, you can get a glimpse of how the two heroes lives are so different. In short, Batman lives a life 'envied' by no one whereas Superman is seen as a 'champion'. I know that Batman underwent a change when Frank Miller reinvigorated the character with more of an edge, but somehow, giving Superman an edge just doesn't work for me. He needs a moment of change but I just don't know what it is, or maybe to contradict myself, he shouldn't change at all. It makes me stop and think for a moment about a world, that doesn't expect the best from it's heroes, fiction or not.

And yes, I def take Supes way too seriously. ;)

I'm also not keen on the costume, though I like Costner and Lane as his parents. I'm probably going to see it, just because I like comic book movies, but my expectations aren't high. From the trailers, it looks way too emo with not enough action.

Very minimally related, but I couldn't resist:

That Supergirl is super cute. Yeah I did that, deal with it. I do have high expectations for the movie. I'm relating it to Nolans Batman movies (because Nolan is producing this and it's also DC) and I expect it to be really good. Not Dark Knight good, but at least TDKR good (Yes, the second movie was better than the third. It's happened before. coughSpider-mancough). I don't like the new costume design also, it reminds me of the Green Lantern movie costume which was bad (I still liked that movie). They could've given him the New 52 costume, I would even settle for the underweared Superman

And Zack Snyder is directing. Same guy as Watchmen and 300.

Well, yeah, no one's arguing that. It's how it goes with a lot of movies, like X-Men.

Huh, I actually liked the suit from that. The green didn't stand out from the black enough in some scenes, but overall it wasn't as bad as this new Superman suit.

Superman IV: The Quest for Peace is far, far worse than Returns ever was. They're going to have to make an actual effort in order to surpass that in terms of Godawfulness.

I'm the type of cat that if I see a full trailer to a huge movie such as this I then refrain from looking at any other trailers including TV until film release, pretty simple. I went to the movies 2 weeks ago and saw the full trailer and I was just :shock: .

After that my feelings were again re-inforced, this will either finally save and resurrect the movie franchise or leave it for dead. I for one have Super high hopes and cannot wait for this flick...'nuff said! :DANCE: :VEHI:

Like many I'm hoping for a great film.
This film is going to be make or break for the Big Blue Boy Scout after Returns disappointed.
Snyder's track record is just about as spotty.

The movies so far have hurt Superman's reputation about as much as Batman and Robin hurt Batman's. Even if the movie bombs, Superman will emerge perfectly fine. One bad movie isn't going to kill the most iconic superhero of all time.
