    He just likes capes a lot. And wearing his pants on the outside.

    Which I think explains why he's known as "super".

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    Seen the teaser a couple of times now and what the fuck is up with that ship? Why is it in the trailer so much?

    Love the part where he flies into space though. LOVE IT!

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Seriously? A lot of you have missed the point, Jor-El wears a cape, the house of Superman wears capes....he's simply imitating his father and legacy, remember as soon as he is launched from krypton he is educated in the ways of his and our world....

    I'm guessing he goes on a big meaningful trek, refusing to use any of his super awesome powers, to see what it's like to live as a boring ole human. Whilst on his trek he indulges himself with a bit of hardcore fishing, and goes on to truely 'find himself'.
    That type of stuff.
    I just hope that type of stuff doesn't end up taking up 60% of the film's runtime.

    Unfortunately that's the story line for birthright, the "untold origin" of superman. Having said that, this looks 100x better then birthright already

    Far better official release of the teaser there. Still no HD just yet though.
    S'good. Nice they opted for one of the most emotive of LOTR refrains as a backing track too.

    I dunno, if you film a butterfly from a low-angle, fields of grass waving majestically in slow-mo, that's considered "Malick" like, I'm not that sure what's so special here.
    It's like saying - "if you do lots of corridor shots is that "Kubrick like" and why's that so special".

    It's not that it's special, it's just a signature style and you just can't deny those shots are reminiscent of Malick. Doesn't mean the film will be as good as a Malick film but it is interesting considering what Synder is generally known for.

    I've just seen the teaser and I fucking love it. Really wasn't what I expected at all. Not the Kent farm bathed in glorious sunshine type thing. Very unlike Synder and it looks as as though he'll pull the reigns in. I'm sure he'll cut loose ones it's Supes vs Zod.

    What I loved about it the most was that music. I don't know if it's part of the original score or something already in existence but I'd rather have that then ditch the John Williams theme.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    LOTR music, innit.

    Yep, fair enough Kal. I do wonder if this trailer will really set the tone for the film, we'll see.

    Yeah, been a big fan of his work too, up to The Tree of Life, which for me was really just a series of beautiful montages and no real substance, it didn't move me in any way whatsoever. Wrong thread, but hey ho.

    I saw the teaser and I got to admit it didn't stir me and I'm a big superman fan. The bit of him flying was cool but I think the trailer needs the John Williams score to make it. The best part of Superman Returns is the opening scene.

    I hope the film doesn't dwell too much on supermans origin. Personally I'd love it if they just did the Death of Superman movie as a series of films. Non superman fans tend to not like superman as its oh he's invincible and no being can beat him. I think a Death of Superman series would make more people interested.

    I really liked Birthright, what didn't you like about it? I'd be more than happy if it took its cues from Birthright.

    People need to stop hoping it won't be an origin film. It is one. That is what's going to happen.

    Just seen the trailer and after seeing the low res comic con trailer, the cinema one just felt anti climatic. If they put the comic con one out would have had a greater effect on the audience

    Well, watched it 3 times now. Still get goosebumps when Supes does the flyby. Russell's 'In time they will join you in the sun' line is awesome too.

    Its available in glorious HD on Apple Trailers btw.

    Yeah. Plus there's literally fuckloads of origin material that the films and TV shows and so on haven't touched. Clark as an adult becoming Superman isn't something that's generally been covered - even Smallville decided to just leap from "Clark in his early 20s" to "Clark as Supes" in the finale. That huge gap from leaving Smallville to becoming Superman just hasn't really been explored to any great extent.

    It's Superman Begins clearly. Nolan and Goyer's involvement just confirms it. The brief has always been "do for Superman what you did for Batman" and this will very much be the equivalent to the first of that trilogy.

    Nice trailer for next year's 'Monkeys On Steroids' flick there...
    Why in the flying fudge didn't WB use that as their teaser trailer? I think the general internet reaction would have been infinitely more positive, rather than all the ' Supes Does Deadliest Catch' buzz it's currently getting.
    As I said before, I didn't mind the released official teaser, but the stuff in the Comic Con one, even in shitty blurry vision, was clearly in a different league.

    Its true though. Worlds Mightiest Catch and him hitchhiking like a supertramp dont exactly inflame the senses.

    It kind of looks like an almost deliberate attempt to say 'look, it may be a snyder movie, but theres no slo-mo or anything!'.

    I still can't get my head around Russell Crowe as Jor-el, especially as he seems to be doing nothing to disguise his accent. He just seems completely wrong for the role.

    I await the inevitable Crowe backlash when some brave journo suggests that the father of Superman was of Krypton by way of Sydney.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.
