Let's Watch Another Man Of Steel Trailer

I'm actually looking forward to this movie now. Haven't heard to much apart from these breakdowns, but this trailer does look cool.

Diddy_Mao:
We all know that eventually they're going to have to bring Lex Luthor into this and I'm super (hurr) glad they decided not to focus on him as the primary villain this time around.

Well it makes sense that if you spend 30% of a movie setting your main character then you can't spend too much time setting up the bad guy, so why waste the good/main one. I believe thats why Nolan left the Joker until the second Batman movie, and I figure as producer making the 'No, don't use Lex in this movie' call is within his powers.

Wuvlycuddles:
I quite like these "let's watch" things, now if only we can convince good sir MovieBob to do another... preferably for an awful trailer for an awful film, I think that could be quite fun :)

Yes please.

I like how you say about best way to relate to superman is basically show fun in the character and his powers. More mediums should learn to do that more often.

Well written article Sir Bob.

after seeing the recent trailers I'll admit I'm super excited to see this film lol

also the CGI cape actually sounds like a real good idea. Utilizes modern technology while actually assisting the actor's performance. Not exactly the digital Green Lantern suit :P

also: "No... He will be a God to them." <--yes, very very awesome

wait did he mean the last fight in Matrix...Revolutions? cuz from what I recall Reloaded ended with Neo holding his hand out to stop some Sentinels lol

tho say what you want about the Matrix sequels, they had some sweet action scenes...well Reloaded did anyway :/

Madman Muntz:

"My son was in the bus. He saw what Clark did."

She's not impressed. She's accusatory. Even if he was helpful, if a genuinely superior being - a god, if you like - showed up among us, humanity wouldn't welcome him. We'd be jealous. We'd be afraid. We'd try to stop him, control him, checkmate him in some way. From the start, I suspected this would be the main thrust of Nolan/Goyer/Snyder's new take on the character, and I seem to have called it correctly.

Great article but I'm calling bullshit on this one statement. Sorry but seeing how many useless and undeserving celebrities people slavishly worship on a daily basis, someone with actual super powers would find a following of epic proportions, because a large percentage of people would be falling all over themselves to kiss his/her boots.

Regular celebrities doesn't have enough power to pick up Manhattan and throw it on top of Washington DC. Some people might see him as a God and worship him but most would probably be jealous of someone that much more powerful than they are, and they would be right to have a heathy bit of fear of someone who could do whatever the hell he wants and no one would be able to stop him.

Looks great.And Hans Zimmer's theme sounds AWESOME.High praise considering John Williams's original Superman score is-in my opinion- his best work ever and an extremely tough act to follow.

...aaaand once again Richard Schiff looks just like Toby Ziegler. At least Supes will have a top-notch speech writer.

It makes sense that the kid with the cape is not a young Clark, but that means Krypto won't be an Australian Cattle Dog, and that makes me a little sad.

If there's one thing that this trailer has sold me on it's the casting of Russell Crowe as Jor-El. I was initially quite skeptical of the choice from the earlier trailers, but I have found myself warming to him through the narration he provided.

"My son was in the bus. He saw what Clark did."

She's not impressed. She's accusatory. Even if he was helpful, if a genuinely superior being - a god, if you like - showed up among us, humanity wouldn't welcome him. We'd be jealous. We'd be afraid. We'd try to stop him, control him, checkmate him in some way.

To be honest, that is the most sensible approach! A guy powerful enough to destroy the planet and kill everyone shows up. What idiot is going to say: "I sure he has nothing but good intentions and am willing to risk the lives of every human being on the planet if I'm wrong."

I'll say this: If they've been punking us about the "gritty realism" stuff this whole time and that turns out to be Starro The Conqueror... well, then I'll believe that Warner Bros. has actually gotten its act together on the DC Universe movies.

Fighting a giant starfish would prove to you that WB is finally "serious" about its comic book properties? Just, no. So much no there. The silver age of comics is...not something to be proud of, like disco or Joe Piscopo.

I'm pretty stoked for this movie, but I'm not gonna lie - I'll watch it, if nothing else, to do my part for securing Justice League.
