I really don't think them holding off on a trailer (for a reasonable amount of time, I might add) is going to equal a massive flop. Also, remember, we here as dedicated fans do not share the same perspective as the average audience. The marketing needs to win them over, not us (they've already got us), and starting early isn't always the best way.
I have to agree with you.

As much as I want them to 'feed the fans' by giving us a bit more, I have to stop and think we should just be damn grateful we are getting a movie at all, and even more grateful that it actually seems to be shaping up to be a great one.

The trailer will come when it comes. Pics will come when they come. The more we whine about it and focus on how long it's taking, the longer it'll be.

Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
