Apples and oranges.

In addition, there is no hype for MOS out there. Why? Because the studio has yet to commence the first major stage for the marketing. That doesn't start until mid-December.
Do I even think before I post? Sure I do. The question is do you read?

Perhaps if you read what I said you'd note I alluded to the Tactic WB seems to have in play. Which I will refer to as the act of purposefully diminishing the hype meter to suit their own means, which in turn has the adverse effect of making it seem like the hype for this film is less than it actually is.
read twice just in case

As for the hype in comparison to successful sequels of other films. The average person doesn't care about that. All they know is that is next summer there is a film with a lot of hype coming out and one with little hype...spread the word.

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
