despite the turnaround news last week that changed this from being a standalone flick and now the plans have morphed it into some sort of Marvel type shoehorn for the upcoming Justice League flick, I remain cautiously optimistic. Biggest fear is that it looks like it is going to be some sort of heavy Dark Knight vibe flick. Superman needs some rounding out on the personality scale but I don't want to see a grim joyless version of him either. That's what differentiates him from Batman. You can't have 2 Dark Knights in the Justice League.

I've been waiting forever to see how he became Superman!

Doesn't it feel angsty though? I agree with what you said about the batman stuff and this mixing. I looooooooooooove the new Batman (as you know), but Superman needs to be a little less emo and more rah rah. I didn't quite get that vibe. Of course, it's only a trailer.

Emotional and angsty aren't always the same though. I got an emotional vibe from this trailer. The fun and games is fine but I'm personally getting tired of the tongue-in-cheek style of the Marvel movies.

I thought about that...yet the bit I liked is the angst seems to be centered around the 'with great power...' chestnut. And it fits in with what Nolan/Snyder have hinted that this is a godlike being who is not sure of his place. If they were going to tweak any part of the origin...that's the angle. It does seem to have a lot of weight to it, but it's different than Batman. Batman forged himself from the deaths of his parents...and was motivated by revenge. Supes is a fish outta water who's overwhelming impulse is to do good and 'save the world'. It does look a little emo...but I dig the direction. It has a lot of sadness to it. Even the great flying scene seems heavy. Sadness is not the same as Nolan's morose/rage filled Bruce Wayne/Batman. Officially feeling very good about this.
