    I couldn't put my finger on it but that's a great point.

    I thought the wry smile and eye flash he gave Lois during the "S" conversation was an encouraging sign that it won't be all gloom and doom.

    The parts with Crowe and Costner were the best thing in that really good trailer. I liked Amy Adams too. Looking forward to this.

    I loved the music in the trailer. I'm sure that those that don't like Zimmer or can't accept anything other than Williams' theme will might have issue with the score, but just from the little bit I've heard here I suspect I'm going to love it.

    I should clarify, it's missing a warm sincere Superman smile, a Christopher Reeve type smile rather than a smarmy potentially evil smile as seen in the stills above.

    Wow. Im sorry, but NOTHING about that scene in the trailer gave any sort of "smarmy and potentially evil" vibe.

    The scene played live doesn't give that vibe, the scene as seen in the two stills provided above does look like he is a bit smarmy and evil, it's the eyes in the first still and the half smile, just looks a little creepy to me, plays better as a trailer than a still shot.

    Cavill has a douchey look to me. It's like he's always smelling something foul and nasty, and his face just make this weird "eww..." facial expression.

    The image looks so drab and gloomy. Superman is about hope. He's not Batman.

    All the stills Ive seen actually look better with the saturation upped. The middle is what they're using, yet to me the last pic looks best.

    I kind of like this...

    But IMHO they went overboard with the texture. Another overdesigned suit. Theres so much texture, it looks like armor, which is just wrong on Superman. I understand WHY its used by Kal-El, but wished they toned it down.



    Had no idea Antje Traue was in this....

    With regards to the Kryptonians, apparently:
    The Kryptonians at the time of baby Kal-El's departure had become what they were through many generations of carefully selected genetic screening in a Gattaca-esque fashion. Over time, castes developed such that they would screen sperm and eggs for the best attributes for warriors, scientists, etc. and the different paths became increasingly specialized on a genetic level. Kal-El is an anomaly, a "love child" conceived naturally with none of that specialization.

    If only they could have made the Kents a same sex couple and worked Cary Elwes into the cast.

    I agree. They don't make movies in color anymore.

    Synder's movies all seem to walk the line between color and monochrome.

    I have watched the trailers on YouTube. Frankly, I am not at all impressed with Mr Cavell's acting. He's totally wrong in my opinion. Also, if one looks closely (some one else has already pointed this out on a YouTube blog) they will note chest hair sticking out at the top of his uniform. Why didn't someone in the production team get the actor to depilate his body hair? Superman is supposed to be the clean-cut all-American hero and would certainly be smooth all over (so to speak). Another person noted, perhaps a bit too tongue in cheek, that Cavell will be the first actor with an "intact" penis to play the American superhero. I will leave that one for others to comment on.

    .....

    Chest hair? We're basing the possible merits of the film on chest hair?
