    Problem is, he does dark films, Superman cannot be that way. Besides, we just had a crap-fest of a Superman film, do we really need another so soon when there are so many Superheros that haven't hit the silver screen yet?

    I read elsewhere that this is going to be based (on some level) on "Superman:Birthright" which I have yet to read.

    That particular book may be a little on the dark side as it's supposedly early in the career while the character was still learning how to go about conducting business.

    I full admit that I may be off my rocker here as I know next to nothing about the story...but I do plan to find out.

    Did someone mash up the new Superman trailer with the first Iron Man trailer?

    Someone has a Terrence Mallick crush. LOTR music was a nice touch.

    Why all the crabbing footage. Didn't he grow up in Kansas or something?

    To me anything with Zack Snyder at the wheel is all about looks over story/characters. This looks Meh. The soundtrack was the best part.

    I highly doubt you will hear that music in this film considering it's from Lord of The Rings, pretty much like that classic James Horner "Aliens" que that was used all over the place back in the 80s.

    Umm could be? Are you kidding? This looks amazing. Finally a Superman done right considering that crap-fest Singer film we last saw.

    After 300, Watchmen and Sucker Punch I have no doubt this will be yet another great film of his. But, if you don't like his style, you may not like this. It can't be worse than Singer's film, which was summed up nicely at the end of the movie TED.

    I thought those films were terrible. All style, no substance. That's why I'm worried
