Before we start, you have seen it already, right? If not, go here.
Ok, and here we go. I'm not 100% on board yet. Trust me, I want to be, but I'm not there. What has been presented so far either seems kinda like a downer or stuff we are already familiar with.
1.) Young Clark has to hide his powers, yes, yes, We know about that already. Why does it that take up as much space in the trailer as it does is odd. The overall message seems to be that Kal/Clark will be a hero. But...again, we know that. We know Superman will be the hero, he's pretty much the definition of hero. I'm not very excited to see a story where Kal grows into Superman, we had that for 10 years in Smallville.
2.) Superman in chains? That's kinda lame. Batman in chains is interesting because you know he's in some element of danger. Superman? It's a chuckle because you know with a flick of the wrist, he's outta there.
3.) The random explosions are just that. there is not context as to danger, or danger to the only person in this trailer we care about; Superman. Just shit blowing up. Which is all well and fine, I like some movies where shit blows up for two hours. But that is not what I want from Superman.
4.) Michael Shannon as General Zod? That's cool, but he is always going to be "Lynard" from Let's Go To Prison
to me. Which was a great movie BTW.
5.) Pa Kent suggestion Clark should have let some kid die. Oh, come on now. Jonathan and Martha Kent were pretty much the ideal parents. They made Clark into the man he became. That was their strength, their power to be awesome parents and instill a sense of right and wrong into what will become the world's greatest hero. ...And "maybe" Clark should have let the kid die?
What did I like? Well, right now there is not too much for me to like. We have not really seen much to sink one's teeth into. Like I said initially, I want to be all about this movie. But right now I'm not.
What do you think? Did the trailer excite you or was it kinda there? Leave a comment below.
