If you asked me who’d win in a fight between Thor and Superman, I’d have a tough time answering. However, if you had a popularity contest between Superman and Thor, its not really a contest. So fan votes determined the winner of a fake fight between Thor and Superman, and of course Superman won. Superman will win everything until the end of time.

I think it’s Kryptonian armor. I guess it could be other armor, that they just found. On the other hand, they are Kryptonians, so technically any armor they own is “Kryptonian Armor.” Point is, we get to see it in action a bit more. It’s all big and bulky, but they’re all super fast and strong, so it doesn’t restrict them as much as you’d expect. It’s disconcerting to watch, but actually kind of works. As ridiculous as it looks in a still photo in action it kinda works. Well done, I guess.
Look! It’s Superman. He’s flying! He’s, uh… Superman! He’s, umm… wow, that’s about it. Superman is flying. Over a city. If you haven’t seen him do this in the almost century that he’s been around, it might be cool, but otherwise it’s just “Look. Superman.” Thank you for acknowledging the existence of Superman. Please go back to your days, now.
Not a lot new in this new Man of Steel tv spot. Barely even worth watching if, like me, you’ve watched that last trailer dozens of times in a row, looking for any new information you might glean. But there is a good shot of Perry White for several thousandths of a second, which is something I don’t think we’ve seen before, so we can enjoy that quick, before a bunch of people who would swear they’re not racist start complaining about how the character is ruined because he’s black, and they’re not saying that because they’re racist, they’re just saying the character only makes sense if he’s white. That’s just science. Can’t dispute that.
Warner Brothers is apparently impressed with Zack Snyder’s direction on Man of Steel, probably because he actually managed to film Superman punching someone, which seems like it should be less of a triumph, but it somehow is. So they’ve thrown him on the short list of directors for Justice League. Hooray for “Visionary Director” Zack Snyder. The Owls of Ga’hool will be so proud.
Now, this is dependent on a couple of things. First is that a Justice League movie actually happens. Which I think is still a wild long shot. But assuming that actually happens, the decision to hire Zack Snyder to direct it will be dependent on how much money Man of Steel brings in. So if you see Man of Steel and think “Damn, that was pretty good. I’d like to see how that director could handle the interaction of Green Lantern and The Flash!” then you better buy another ticket to Man of Steel to make that happen. On the other hand, if you don’t like the movie, well, I guess… try to get your money back? Make sure one of your friends that goes to see the movie pays for a ticket to Iron Man 3 instead? That’s a tougher one.
Some people are really, really, really excited about Man of Steel coming out soon. How excited are they? They start making their own movie. That’s a passion project right there. He probably doesn’t edit only in his spare time.
This type of trailer is better, because you don’t get spoiled by any of the visuals. This type of trailers is not as good, because I didn’t watch the original version (why are there three versions?) to see how accurate it is. I assume it’s accurate, otherwise it wouldn’t be getting recognition. I also assumed it was an ‘S’ the whole time. I would like to continue to believe that, but we’ve just been Snyder’ed.
Like The Dark Knight Rises before it The Man of Steel gets a trailer recut entirely with footage from the Superman Animated Series. Because, let’s be honest, you can spend all the money you want making these big fancy live action movies, but for a substantial portion of us the “real” version is going to be these animated shows. No matter how hard you try, that’s not going to change. So, this. It’s pretty good. I’m honestly surprised that we didn’t see this for the previous trailers, but I suppose it’s difficult to find a lot of good Superman: The Animated Series footage of bearded Superman looking sad on a crabbing boat.
Trailer after trailer for this movie, and it’s all Superman looking sad, Superman on a crab boat, Superman hitchhiking, Superman talking to his dad, Superman trying to determine his place in the world. And you start to wonder, why the hell did they hire the 300/Watchmen director for the “Superman Mopes Around” movie. Zack Snyder is the master of style over substance, what the hell is he doing with all this talking and philosophy jazz?
Well, worry no longer. Cause this trailer will provide all that other stuff. Superman will be shot at by planes, alien ships will show up, tanks will threaten people, Michael Shannon will wildly overact, and Superman will punch the shit out of Zod in mid air. Literally all that stuff that didn’t happen in the previous trailers will happen in this one. As though someone finally snuck past the guards and broke into the editor’s room long enough to explain that, really, we got a whole movie about Superman and his place in the world the last time a Superman movie happened, and this time we’d really just like to see him punch somebody. Or at least be Superman. Just Superman chatting with Lois about what his crest means is a million times better than the last two trailers combined. Thank god.
I mean, you film the thing, you upload it to YouTube, we’re all scared enough to demand Superman leaves our planet before we get back to watching cat videos to calm down. So why are you having so much trouble? With the static and the words and the scratchy audio? You’ve got futuristic, otherworldly technology, but some how you can’t manage to pull off the same feats that literally anyone with a cell phone could. Better plan, just walk into downtown Metropolis in your goofy armor and then give your speech. Literally fifty people will film it and upload it to YouTube for free. Half of them will be in that annoying vertical format, because the concept of video cameras is still somehow new to them, but it’ll get up there. And your bizarre technological deficiencies will be less obvious. Everyone wins.
Well, except Perry White. How the hell is he supposed to put out a newspaper if the damn cell phone kids keep filming the news and putting it up for free?
