I know they're building a "sense of mystery," but for a while the trailer acts like the movie's embarrassed to be about Superman so it's not gonna come out and say it. I really hope we don't have to sit through 45 minutes of Superman origin story next summer too.

I watched the trailer this morning at my IMAX. I know its just your opinion, but I have really no idea what you're talking about when you say that the trailer is embarrassed to be about Superman.

People who are hating on the lack of action in this trailer are obviously missing the whole point. It's showcasing the fact that they're going to explore Superman's humanity and struggles of identity- the thing that creates a connection between us and a seemingly God-like being. - This comment is from some random guy on youtube, and a view that I got when I saw the trailer.

Pretty sure it's just a job. All flashbacks of Clark as a child is on a farm. I know they haven't even written the score for the movie yet, but I'm certain Hans will nail it.

I loved those trailers

Music in trailers is often from other movies btw.  I can't even count how many movies over the 10 years following Nightmare Before Christmas used the music from it for their trailers.

The music in the Man of Steel trailer is LOTR.  Fellowship of the Ring, to be exact.  After Gandalf fights the Balrog.

Watched the Man of Steel trailer. Meh. I'll still catch the film, but I still say that the teaser for the 1978 movie had me more excited. Of course I was 18 back then and superheroes on the screen hadn't happened yet, but all it has was names and clouds. The logo coming up was all you needed.

Apparently there were two different voice over possiblities for the teaser.  Jor-El or Pa Kent.

You can see them both at Firstshowing.net (direct link)  Although they both have the same footage the different tones of the voiceovers does make it feel different.


Liked them both.

bah,that's a shame it showed quite a bit
Spoiler for Hiden:
it looked like The Army has a go at Supes,taking him as a threat i reckon......that picture of him 'crouching/getting to his feet'(?) infront of what looks like a bank vault is the aftermath of being hit with some sort of missile and getting thrown back like a speeding bullet(heh heh)and into that vault


it also showed quite a lot of destruction in the city

and there was also a School bus/children water rescue scene,maybe a nod towards the original on the Golden Gate Bridge

in fact,it showed quite a bit,certainly wasn't a teaser like the ones officially released

well,we shouldn't be surprised

Man of Steel will be in 3D

Quote
In the wake of "Titanic," it's virtually impossible for any blockbuster to put up record-breaking numbers without the help of an IMAX or 3D surcharge. (Thus, last spring's re-release of that film and next year's planned revivals of "Jurassic Park" and "Independence Day.") Christopher Nolan might have the kind of sway as a director to do without 3D conversion, but as a producer on "Man of Steel," that would appear to be less so.

The Playlist reports that WB is setting forth with post-production 3D conversion on the Zack Snyder film in preparation for its June 14th, 2013 release. One can imagine how tantalizing the prospect of Superman (Henry Cavill) flying over the audience must be -- select scenes in "Superman Returns" followed suit for its own IMAX release -- but then again, that same kind of talk preceded the release of 2011's "Green Lantern," and well...

The news comes on the heels of Guillermo del Toro reportedly agreeing to convert his "Pacific Rim" for 3D before next July's tentpole date, despite that film also having been shot in old-fashioned two dimensions. Again, the spectacle of giant robot suits doing battle with massive monsters is a tantalizing one, but remember when that stuff used to be nifty enough on its own?

We're all hoping the film answers the question of how does Superman take a leak while wearing that suit. Or does he even have to? Perhaps he can hold it... forever!   icon_eek

I vote they use the Star Trek into Darkness poster as the Man of Steel poster. Then they can doctor-in Cumberbatch into this poster and use it as the Star Trek into Darkness poster.  High five!

If I had to guess, I'd say it involves Superman giving himself over to the authorities as the right thing to do even though he could clearly just break out any time he wants.

The comic Con trailer showed that theme(unfortunately only those at comic con saw it or those who saw it on youtube before it was pulled=me)


The Army is responsible for..
Spoiler for Hiden:
Shooting at Supes and making him fly back and smashing into that Vault..that is again seen in the new trailer but just him flying back,it was also the first shot from the film that was released(him getting up afterward)

Unless that trailer at CC was cut so it looked that way,but i am pretty sure we are going to get a one sided fight of The Army Vs Superman



Surprisingly Costner's answer to the young Clark sitting on the back of his pick up is one of the most interesting points of the trailer for me,we have all grown up knowing Pa Kent instilled good into Clark and taught him about Values etc,So Costner's Pa Kent saying that made me raise my eyebrows a little

Man of Steel looks like its going to have a lot of questions and a really interesting story

Agreed. I just don't want Snyder's Superman to be mopey, ya know? I think they can take this different tact without reducing him to a constantly sad, unhappy character in a movie with no sense of fun. imho the first couple Superman films had both a sense of seriousness and a sense of fun, and that's really not easy to balance. I hope Snyder can achieve that.

I can sort of see Nolan's involvement as far as wanting to ground - as much as possible - the story in the concept of "Well, if Superman really could exist, how would our governments and populace respond to it?" Would we embrace him and just welcome him, or would we automatically see him as a walking time-bomb and threat to civilization? Or as a 'weapon of mass destruction' that a government needed to control. And does that veer too far into X-Men territory?  icon_smile

We'll see if a summer movie audience can handle that kind of ambiguity vs., you know, obliterating masses of space aliens. I embrace both. icon_smile

This echoes my concerns as well.  I can't say that these trailers have made me excited for Superman at all.  The color palette alone is quite dim, and that seems to be echoed by the whole tone of the film.  Frankly, it's not really what I'm lookong for from a Superman movie.

I'm willing to give it a try, of course, but if it's just mopey with no sense of fun, they've missed something essential with the character, I think.  A Superman film doesn't have to be light.  The chracter doesn't have to be a boy scout, either, but he shouldn't be grim or morose.

The grim, dark tone of the trailer is what got me really excited about the movie. You want fun and zany? Superman 1, 2 and Returns is for you. I enjoyed those films, but I am really looking forward to a more realistic Superman movie. Well, as realistic as a flying, invulnerable guy from outer space can be, anyway biggrin

I prefer the self conflicted and semi-angry superman stories from the comics.

Surprisingly Costner's answer to the young Clark sitting on the back of his pick up is one of the most interesting points of the trailer for me,we have all grown up knowing Pa Kent instilled good into Clark and taught him about Values etc,So Costner's Pa Kent saying that made me raise my eyebrows a little

Man of Steel looks like its going to have a lot of questions and a really interesting story
Agreed. I just don't want Snyder's Superman to be mopey, ya know? I think they can take this different tact without reducing him to a constantly sad, unhappy character in a movie with no sense of fun. imho the first couple Superman films had both a sense of seriousness and a sense of fun, and that's really not easy to balance. I hope Snyder can achieve that.

I can sort of see Nolan's involvement as far as wanting to ground - as much as possible - the story in the concept of "Well, if Superman really could exist, how would our governments and populace respond to it?" Would we embrace him and just welcome him, or would we automatically see him as a walking time-bomb and threat to civilization? Or as a 'weapon of mass destruction' that a government needed to control. And does that veer too far into X-Men territory?  icon_smile

We'll see if a summer movie audience can handle that kind of ambiguity vs., you know, obliterating masses of space aliens. I embrace both. icon_smile

This echoes my concerns as well.  I can't say that these trailers have made me excited for Superman at all.  The color palette alone is quite dim, and that seems to be echoed by the whole tone of the film.  Frankly, it's not really what I'm lookong for from a Superman movie.

I'm willing to give it a try, of course, but if it's just mopey with no sense of fun, they've missed something essential with the character, I think.  A Superman film doesn't have to be light.  The chracter doesn't have to be a boy scout, either, but he shouldn't be grim or morose.

The grim, dark tone of the trailer is what got me really excited about the movie. You want fun and zany? Superman 1, 2 and Returns is for you. I enjoyed those films, but I am really looking forward to a more realistic Superman movie. Well, as realistic as a flying, invulnerable guy from outer space can be, anyway biggrin

I kind of specifically indicated that zany wasn't necessary.  And Returns is not for me, either.

I'm all for a realistic Superman movie, but that's still possible without making the whole thing drip with somber gloom.

The somber, gloomy parts of the Batman trilogy are my favorite. You can say that it's because it's the fucking Batman, and this is Superman -- which is true. But a dark take on Superman is looking HOLY SHIT I SHIT MY PANTS awesome -- just as a zany take on Batman is not-quite-shitting-my-pants-but-still awesome (Adam West anyone?). Different takes on the same heroes.
