    Default 'Man of Steel' Trailer.

    Well ... I think they finally figured out how to do a Superman movie properly.





    Note these are the exact same Trailer, except that Kevin Costner (Pa Kent) narrates the one, and Russell Crowe (Jor-El) narrates the other.

    Awwwww yeeaaahhh!!!

    Can't wait for this!

    The trailer doesn't have much in terms of reveals, but it still serves it's purpose of getting you hyped.

    I liked the last Superman they did some years back. But I guess the powers that be at DC weren't happy with it so they decided on a seies reboot after only one movie?

    I agree, I think the trailer serves exactly the purpose they were aiming for.
    Not only to hype, but to show that they are aiming for a completely different tone for the movie from 'Superman Returns'.

    I enjoyed it as well, but it was really 'campy'; almost a throw-back to the Superman Movies of Old.
    Even basing the story as a continuation of the older films.

    This new one has been spot on ever since the casting of Henry Cavill as Clark.

    Seems so. Looks like it will cover the entire Bio of Superman. From a Lost, Troubled young man; all the way through to Heroic World Saviour.

    As opposed to Superman Returns, which tries to pick up where another movie left off 30 years ago.

    Makes sense to me. haha

    Oh. My. Eff.



    This looks SOO epic ... I'm so happy they are finally doing this right.

    I thought I liked Superman Returns ... Now I realize that was just me being duped.

    I didn't know Zach Snyder and Christopher Nolan were involved. It looks pretty damn serious!

    Watchmen was pretty ill.

    I like all of Nolan's films as well. I'm just going to take this time to say, I love Nolan's Batman trilogy. But, Memento was the shit!

    I haven't seen or read anything on the movie yet! haha that I remember anyways... Drugs are bad, mmmkay.

    Watchmen was amazing, even if it was 3 hours plus. I didn't mind at all. Sucker Punch was a little meh, but still had cute girls and decent CGI and action scenes.

    Here's hoping Zack Snyder doesn't ruin another movie.

    This was exactly my thinking; I loved that part of the Trailer.
    But then I looked into it, and apparently they aren't the first ones to mess with the meaning of the Iconic Superman Logo:

    Quote Wikipedia wrote:
    Initially, the S-shield had one meaning: S for Superman. One of the first alternative meanings was presented in Superman: The Movie, in which it was not an S, but rather the S-shaped Coat of arms of the House of El. After the Superman reboot story The Man of Steel, the symbol's story was that it was designed by Jonathan Kent and was derived from an ancient Native American symbol. The symbol was featured on a medicine blanket given to an ancestor of the Kent family by a Native American tribe after he helped to cure them of a plague and was supposed to represent a snake, an animal held to possess healing powers by the tribe (implying that, by wearing this symbol, Superman was a metaphorical healer). In 2004, Mark Waid's Superman: Birthright series says the S-Shield is the Kryptonian symbol for "hope" and Superman believes it may have begun as a coat of arms for the House of El. Later, writer Geoff Johns confirmed it was indeed a coat of arms, as well as a symbol for hope. In the 2013 film Man of Steel, it is also described as the Kryptonian symbol for "hope".

    Ugh, I'm so pumped for this movie, my loins hurt. Henry Cavill seems to have nailed the role.
    And apparently Christian Bale is now waffling on maybe commiting to the Justice League movie. If they could get Henry Cavill and Christian Bale in the same movie, that would be EPIC.

    word is there is no kryptonite in the movie too..

    smart move... avoiding the obvious "omg kryptonite seriously weakens superman" angle that everyone knows is coming

    Ooo that would be wonderful!!

    Especially considering that Doomsday proved you don't need Kryptonite to (almost) kill Superman.

    Expecting something like Dark Knight. Good quality, plot movie. In other words plain marvel movie turned into films like DK, Watchmen, HP and etc.
