See this is what i like in a teaser... why spunk ya load now when we'll have 3 trailers, an intl trailer and 10 TV Spots that'll show a good portion of the flick later on


Precisely! Weíre just used to getting so much information these days I suppose.

Patience everyone, the goods are no doubt coming.

it's just that the footage is boring and doesn't give any real suggestion as to what this is or where it's going.


I donít think you need to convey those points in a teaser, a year out from release.

We get brief beats from the story here and a nice insight into the look of the thing. And then a wonderful closing shot of him soaring into the stratosphere. And then the crest. Done! Oh thereís a new Superman film coming next year, thatís the only thing that needs to resonate with the audience at this point, nothing more. We donít need anything else at this point. Teasers donít get bums in seats, marketing much closer to release does that. Iím sure it wonít have the masses falling out of their seats into puddles of excitedly discharged urine but theyíll get the message. Thereís a Superman film coming next year... watch this space.

Sure weíre not all going to agree on this one though


I dont want the teaser to spunk it's load, I dont want tonnes of footage and I love teasers that tease. Which is why TDK teaser is such a great example, it used no footage yet told you enough about that movie to get the general audience really on board. Through that simple teaser of the symbol and the few lines of dialogue audiences knew 'This is Batman vs Joker' it didnt have to tell them plot or reveal the big action set pieces, but it was perfect as a teaser. If youre going to announce a new Superman film and youre going to do it via footage from the film, that footage should at least have enough to say 'Superman is back!' or it should be exciting enough to make people go 'WOW' or it should draw people in to ask questions and get curious/teased... this does none of that. Thats why I think it fails. The footage looks good and I am sure this flick will deliver the action and all the rest, I am just so dissapointed with the teaser. The Comic Con footage sounded pretty cool and sounded like it had enough to really sell it as a different kind of Superman to the previous flicks (Superman under armed guard, burning buses, heroics etc), this doesnt feel/look all that different to Singer's and it really wouldnt surprise me if the general audience thought it was a direct sequel to Returns.

I'm one of the few that really wanted a Singer directed sequel to Returns


Fair enough. Agree to disagree on this ... as Iím sure many across the interwebs will today.

But speaking of the CC footage did you see any of it when it leaked? Didnít myself but saw an animated Gif on some other site earlier (canít remember which now) of Superman totally ablaze walking out of a fire from the CC reel. Looked pretty amazing!

Moving on from the teaser, Iím sure the theatrical will smash it if it has stuff like that to throw at us!

Bottom line - Warner should have gone with Comic-Con trailer. Loved the imagery(none plot specific), and Crowe's voiceover. The one attached to Dark Knight Rises was good, but just a little too lightweight. Comic-Con one gave me goosebumps. Not to worry, I'm sure another longer one will round around Thanksgiving time...Loved the music though. What was it?

Indeed and having listened to the track in its entirety (Journey to the Line) I oddly keep thinking of it in terms of a Superman theme, admittedly without knowing how the final film plays out it's interesting that the music really fits the character in my mind - some of it even sounds a little similar to what John Ottman did with Superman Returns (minus the Williams theme I mean). Strange isn't it how a few striking images set to the right music can stick with you and alter your perceptions of that piece of music.

Anyway, having seen a few bootleg copies of the Comicon trailer I have to admit I'm just about sold; I had strong reservations about Snyder as directoron this (despite being a fan of Dawn, 300 and Watchmen) and yes it's a miniscule amount of footage shown so far but it just looks right - here's hoping it's consistent with the final film's quality.

isnt that music from LOTR?

Other than that last shot this is completely different from what comic con footage was. Clearly they dont want to sell them selves too short early on.

Official link of teaser there. No HD quality yet, but still better than a cam job.

Edit, beaten to it...

Yeah that's some LOTR music right there. I thought it fit quite nicely for now though,

I'm a soppy sod at the best of times... That had me welling up a bit with the death of Gandalf score

Thought they were using music from The Thin Red Line for this teaser but this worked for me. Gorgeous imagery and gorgeous music. The shot where the caped child adopts the iconic hands on hips pose... Chills! Again, soppy sod

watched the Official and the international trailer. Like how they have released the one trailer with two different voice overs. One from his biological father and one from Supermans earth pops. Nice. The trailer was not what I was expecting at all. Think I like it. At least its different.

Meh it's very average. Can Superman even grow a beard? How does he shave? Waiting for the full trailer they previewed at another event.

I thought that was a bit meh and cheesy. I do like the last shot of him flying, it had a more convincing "You'll believe a man can fly" feeling than that of the SR teaser (which overall was mile better). But yeah, the flying shot has me convinced alone.

LOLZ, the teaser for Superman Returns was one million times better than this. (Film too, probably)

What the hell is up with the camera wobble in EVERY shot. Can they not keep the camera still?

I thinkl the fishing boat scene must foreshadow the film's ending, where CSuperman has to rustle up as many different dishes using mackerel as he can, in order to defeat the evil Iron Chef.

Nobody has picked up on the insane similarity to Tree Of Life or other Malick films yet? It's like Snyder has really tried to emulate that style, and I don't have a problem with that at all. The thought of a comic book shot entirely like that has me very excited.

The teaser really surprised me with its style, but I liked it a lot. I'm excited to see Snyder do something more character-based, and hopefully with a bit more substance, rather than purely relying on insane visuals (which he's brilliant at, but Sucker Punch showed us that more than cool-looking shots is required to make a good film). I'm sure Nolan's had quite an impact on the tone of it.

Just for the record, the newly released official teaser's music is the last 90 seconds of 'The Bridge Of Khazard Dum' from Fellowship. 'Journey to the Line' from Zimmer's magnificent Thin Red Line soundtrack was used to equally good effect on the Comic-Con trailer. Which as several people have said, should have been used. It didn't give away any major plot points, but DID feature brief flashes of Lois Lane, Jor-El, Zod(?), Clark on fire and an almost Giger style Krypton...

I'm sure the trailer will rasie the question of how Superman shaves his beard! Saying that, no-one really questioned how he got his hair cut. The trailer is kind of Malick-esque I suppose. It certainly wasn't something I was expecting. Wanna see some action now though. Surely we're not going to have to wait till xmas for THAT!

I pointed that out on another forum alright! Mainly the bit with the kid running through the grass, had a very Malickian vibe off it. I was also reminded of Aroniofsky's The Wrestler, and that directors move away from MTV-style editing and flashy camerawork. Hopefully Snyder is doing something similar and moving away from his earlier aesthetc.

Saw the teaser in front of The Dark Knight Rises and found it very underwelming. The voice over was boring and went on for far too long. The shot of the kid with the towel on his back was silly and agin far too long. The shots of Clark travelling the world just reminded me of Batman Begins and The Incredible Hulk (TV series). And the final shot, well what so cool about that, the sonic boom was done before in Superman Returns and the hands by his sides flying has also been done in The Matrix and Smallville before and even if it is more "realistic" looks a bit crap. Compare this to the Superman Returns teaser and I just feel very unexcited about this at the moment.

Kinda funny seeing people praise this trailer for pretty much doing the same thing Superman Returns did.

Honestly - giant robots. How hard is this crap?

Whats wrong with waiting til christmas? The films not out for another year almost! I dont see why people cant wait until a few months before a films release to see a proper trailer.They are still working on the fx and there is a lot of work ahead.I would rather wait until the fx are done before they show any action footage.

I see some people are underwhelmed with the teaser spot for Man Of Steel, especially in comparision to Superman Returns, which had some fantastic trailers and tv spots. I wonder if this has anything to do with the music...?  It was the begining bars of the Superman them in the trailers for Returns that got the gooses bumping for me.
Although I have slowly bought in to the wiping of the slate in relation to the music in the new film and it not including the John Williams music, I can't see it being bettered. I'm presuming that the music from LOTR used so far is temporary until the score is completed?

I think you well be to something there. A big part of what made the SR trailers work for me was the use of Williams score. I did like this one though and it has me intrigued as to the direction the film will be taking. I'm not overly excited but it's piqued my interest

Personally I thought it was a nice teaser. At first it looks like it could be for some generic drama movie, and then there's a hint of Superman with the boy in the red cape and then it cuts to some more stuff that confuses the audience (i.e, still doesn't look like a superhero film) and then that final shot of the kid sells it - Superman!...

...and then of course is the money-shot. Supersonic Man Of Steel.

Managed to catch a bootleg (decent quality actually) of the Comic Con footage and it really pisses all over the teaser. The Comic Con footage makes it look superb, the teaser, not so much. There is a shot of Superman covered in flames that looks awesome and another that is more difficult to make out that looks like he is being covered in something or sinking into something, reaching out a hand that looks really cool. Some little glimpses of Amy Adams as Louis and what looks like it may be Zod and Supes in an aerial fight with the camera angled alongside a building. It looked great.
