Now THAT is a trailer.
Can't wait to see it!
Zack Sneider is the man
After the beauty of .'Watchmen, i guess this movie is gonna be extraordinaire
It's becoming predictable how they trot this tired saga out every generation or so. I'll pass.
So ready for this!!!!!
I still believe that Superman 2 will be better than this.
this reboot looks promising and the trailer looks awesome.
I dont think there is a trilogy behind. Maybe I'm wrong, but didnt sneider say that it will be one monumental shot at the saga?
Also, it's pure entertainment here!
I saw LexCorp in the trailer, and that means Lex is the villain in the 2nd or 3rd film of this trilogy. Cavill is going to be a megastar, he's playing Superman in 6 films - MOS trilogy and Justice League trilogy. Warner Bros announced a month ago that they've already ordered a script for MOS2.
But let's hope sneider directs them then...
I got choked up watching this!
The last superman was really bad its kind of put me off the franchise. Make original movies Hollywood.
The movie didn't know what it wanted to be: Prequel, Reboot, Remake, or Sequel....
Personally I liked Superman Returns and thought they could have done a badass more action packed sequel. It gets annoying always having to start from the intro story again and again for the same characters. Nonetheless I'm excited about this and already ready for the sequel to not be in the intro phase.
Still waiting for someone to make a movie/TV Show for Preacher. What a great book that was.
Me, too, I think. Nice hype and 7 m. viewers of the clip.
This really is the Moses story in the Old Testament updated, no?
No not really
I'm surprised they got rid of Brandon Routh and got another guy who doesn't really look like a superman. Oh well, Superman Returns was good considering the plot line was average although better than Superman 3 and 4, especially 4, I think Gene Hackman was probably had a gun to his head if he didn't star in the film. Still, no superman, or even super hero film will touch Superman 1 or 2 again.
Looks awesome. Could be awesomer though. You know what's awesomer? John Mother******* Williams is awesomer.
See, this could have been so epic.
The Richard Donner cut of Superman 2 is amazing.
Brandon Routh looks like Christopher Reeve.
Henry Cavill looks like Superman.
Its like Singer put all his eggs in the sequel basket, only to find he didn't have a sequel.
I wish they'd finally make a film with superman kicking his feet like Michael Phelps when he flies. SOME mechanism of propulsion, so it's BELIEVABLE!!!!! Otherwise, I just can't buy the premise.
Superman's body is not human (it only looks human). We have no idea what makes his body fly, because its beyond a human body and therefore his powers are supposed to be beyond human comprehension. I don't think mechanism of propulsion is relevant to an alien life form.
I wish they can address the physical science in superman's body in the movie or something...
It would be an interesting scene if they had a team of scientists try to 'study' superman or something.
^^ Absolutely. "Man of Steel" may have more pragmatic meaning than we realize.
Absolutely. I'm not saying this 'reboot' or whatever is a typical horrible re-telling of a movie, but the director as a chance of redeeming the franchise from the travesty Superman Returns.
The only thing we know what makes Kal-El 'Superman' is that the sun located in the 'Sol' system amplifies his powers dramatically. That's it.
We had all better consider a "plan B"....only another 5 billion years or so until our own sun explodes.
Why are you saying Man Of Steel (2013) is "typical"? We know absolutely nothing about the story. Why judge with no knowledge? Actually there is one thing the director Snyder has told us, and that is there is no Kryptonite in MOS.
I didn't say that Man of Steel was a typical remake. You must have confused yourself with my post.
The reason why there is no Kryptonite in Man of Steel is because the main antagonist is General Zod who is also a Kryptonian.
Therefore, it would not make any logical sense to introduce the element in the story unless if it was another character that wanted to 'rid' the world of metahumans.
The story has been under lock and key, very little has been spilled. But I did read a tweet by Michael Shannon (Zod). He says Russell Crowe (Jor-El) beat him up badly during filming. And I also heard a rumor that Jor-El and Zod fight, so probably is true. Zod vs Jor-El early in the film, and Zod vs Kal-El later. I also heard a rumor that Kal-El saves Lois before he becomes Superman, and that Lois therefore knows that Clark is Superman. She probably comes up with the idea of the double-identity for him. I also have seen a picture from the filming, and it shows a gravestone. I won't say who is on the gravestone, because it will spoil it for you all. But I heard that Zod killed that person.
Yes that goes without saying, I think they will give the honor of discovering Kryptonite to Lex in the 2nd or 3rd film. He'll need it.
Did they even address if Superman can even age?
Kryptonians are not immortal. Superman isn't a special case either.
However, in the future storyline in the comics, he is basically a god and can create universes with his mind. :shock:
So basically, they are rebooting the franchise like Christopher Nolan did to the batman movies that were nearly destroyed by Joel Schumacher.
Well only about 1% of the world reads comics. They are almost irrelevant to Man Of Steel (2013).
Okay, is Ursa and Non in the movie? Because the three of them were supposedly sent to the Phantom Zone for their crimes with several other Kryptonians and a Daxamite I believe.
Unfortunately, that is true.
For some reason, there is a negative stigma attached to comics stereotyping people as 'losers, nerds, geeks, etc.'.
I'm not a Superman afficionado, but I don't remember if they ever addressed in the movies. I hope they do in Man of Steel.
Snyder already said his universe has nothing to do with the Donner universe, and that the Kryptonians are named Zod and Faora. Snyder said to disregard anything you saw in the Donner/Lester/Singer films.
Here's the cast-
Okay, so this is completely a reboot then. An invasion? Interesting.
Faora? I remember her. In the Pre-Crisis storyline, she was sent to the Phantom Zone for 300 years for killing 23 men in a concentration camp because she has a deep hatred for men like Circe in the Wonder Woman comics.
Wait, why would she align with Zod?
I've been told a lot of this film is set on Krypton, so that will be explained.
By the way, Zod sent a video to Earth, regarding his intentions-
It is fantasy; there is no "believable" mechanism for how the Hulk survives falling from airplane height, for a hammer swing leading to guided flight, how a spider's DNA can ever mix with that of a human (and gain spider powers, yet look fully human), or anything else. That "believable" crap is how Marvel used to try to sell how "real" they were (compared to DC Comics), when the more they tried to apply an explanation based in science, the more laughable the end result.
It is a superhero film, not an episiode of NOVA.
Looks good to me.
Wait, it's set on Krypton? Will they even go to Earth? They said in the link that you provided me is that Earth would be invaded.
That appears to not make any sense. If they are on Krypton, then they are powerless because of the red sun.
I hope they don't do a sequence of invading Earth and wrap everything up in less than 25 minutes like they did in Spiderman 3...
Most of the film is on Earth but don't be surprised if 20-30 minutes is on Krypton at the beginning (and the film's running time is 148 minutes). That's what I've been told. This is like a biopic that explains everything, and that includes Jor-El and Zod and the history of why Zod cares about Kal-El. Remember the first Superman film began on Krypton. So will Man Of Steel, and this will be a lot more detailed about the relationship between Jor-El and Zod and there will be a lot of action on Krypton. Just because they don't have 'powers' on Krypton it doesn't mean they won't be killing each other. Man Of Steel will be all about action, because Warner Bros ordered this reboot because Superman Returns didn't have enough action. And Snyder's Man Of Steel has no relationship with the Donner universe. Krypton is at war when Kal-El is sent to Earth, and Zod's eventual threat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QkfmqsDTgY will be based on the war between Jor-El and Zod. It won't be a simple case of the Phantom Zone. You can see the Superman symbol in Zod's video-
and you can also make out Zod wearing a mask-
reviews coming in
Wow, a 70% on Rotton Tomatoes?
It was labeled a 'Generic Blockbuster'?
I guess I better go see the movie myself..
