Look! Up in the Sky! The Full Man of Steel trailer!

Quick thoughts before I run off to do actual work:

1. This actually feels like a Superman movie. Which is saying a lot considering DC's non-Batman movie offerings.

2. The music, holy hell. It grabs you. Glad they finally left the John Williams stuff behind, as iconic as that score is.

3. Look! Action! Superman doing stuff besides tossing and lifting heavy objects!

4. HAIRY CHESTED SUPERMAN! Welcome back, friend.

5. Wait... did Pa Kent just tell young Clark he maybe should have let those kids die? Um... no. Sorry. That ain't Pa Kent. Not at all. Clark becomes Superman as we know him BECAUSE of Pa Kent's moral guidance. This just sits poorly.

6. The lack of red tights still doesn't work for me. At all. Come on, Snyder, it ain't too late to bring'em back in post.

7. From the looks, it looks like it won't be a Superman version of what Nolan did with Batman. This is a good thing.

8. I still long for a Superman movie with Superman doing batshit insane things ala Superman back in the 50's and 60's.

Shit. This actually looks like it's going to be a good Superman movie. Oh, well. There's other things to hate on without seeing them in completion I suppose...


  1. Oddly, I had the opposite reaction. I somehow hate on movies these days based on the previews.

    - The music, while I agree it's time to do away with the John Williams score, just sounds like the opening to BSG to me.

    - Hard to say what the Superman bits will be like, as they gave us 2/3 of the trailer with kid Clark.

    - I agree with the problems about Pa Kent and the suit. It's iconic for a reason.

    - Zack Snyder....He clearly loves comics, looking at 300 and Watchmen. But Sucker Punch was just awful. I'm going to reserve judgement on him for now....at least I know the visuals will look amazing.

    I think you need to take a minute to let it sink in....not let the excitement of the newness cloud your judgement....I seem to remember you and I being super excited when DK2 was coming out, and we all know what a trainwreck that is looking back on it.

  2. Like I said, mixed emotions, man. Mixed emotions. A lot to like and about as much to, well, not like.

  4. Fathers try to protect sons at all cost and he was just being honest.

  5. I get that (or maybe I don't as I don't have kids), but Clark grows into the man he becomes because of Jonathon Kent's moral foundation and guidance. But I do see your point.
