I would have cast Shannon as Non.

but my girlfriend, who doesn't nearly have as many hopes pinned on this as I do, WAS very intrigued. So, successfully reaching out beyond the converted?

Having a film dark and gritty is better than having it all happy and nice like the way Marvel seem to approach their comic book adaptions.

It will be very intriguing to seeing how this movie pans out compared to the others

Looks to me like the speeches from the teasers will play out in the movie's themes. One of them being whether or not Clark can inspire humanity to greatness or dangerous paranoia. He is a potential WMD, after all. Plus, with Chris Nolan involved the hero will no doubt struggle with some sort of guilt, so I'm really looking forward to seeing a version of Superman who doubts himself and wonders whether or not people are worth saving, or possibly even if he can. Bring it on.

Personally the last thing I want to see is a dark, gritty Superman which is where this seems to be going. For me Superman is the embodyment of the American Dream - he is the one superhero that I don't want to have daddy issues, or doesn't like his power and responsibility.

One of the things that I loved about the orignal Superman movie is that Supes wanted the responsibility, he enjoyed having the dual personality of Clarke and injected it all with humour. I can't think of anything more depressing than a depressing Superman...Superman with issues!! Blurgh!!

Joined: 13/12/2005 know when you first saw pictures of TDKR's Bane and you knew he was gonna be the real deal as a villain? Well, Cavill's just nailed Supes for me. Oh, and for those of you opposed to the "grittier" takes on superhero movies. You can always go and enjoy the spandex nightmare that's gonna be Electro in Spider-man 2(5?). He looks bright and breezy.

This is awesome! Each representation of Supes from MoS has given us a different aspect of his character to think about, whilst maintaining the moody edge - in the original image (crumpled vault door) we have our, literally, flexing his muscles. In the teaser trailers, we have Clark running from his destiny with the weight of the (dying?) words of his fathers on his shoulders. In image 2 (silhouette portrait) we see superman in the shadows, perhaps preparing to emerge???? And with this latest image we have superman full exposed to the world

I have absolutely no problem with anything I've seen so far. "Dark and gritty"? doesn't seem that way to me. Dark and gritty would be Supes resisting being cuffed. He's not. It stands to reason that he would submit to authority to show them that he's law-abiding and not a threat. And let's face it, we all know in advance that he's going to make the right decision and use his powers for good.

I have no problem with Cavill, even tho I loved Brandon Routh as Superman. The problem with Superman Returns was that Lex Luthor land grab had been done before. Returns needed something fresh.

There is a scene I'd like to see, and it doesn't have anything to do with Supes chained. In Justice League, I want to see the proper authorities try to put the cuffs on Wonder Woman. Amazons don't like being bound and chained by men, it weakens them, and I bet Diana would most likely have a very negative reaction to being handcuffed. If the writers follow her backstory, WW going medieval at the first sign of restraints is the way that scenario should play out. Sorry, fanboys. The lady doesn't enjoy bondage.
