Default Re: All Things Superman: An Open Discussion - - - - - - - - - Part 18

Pretty effective image, if a simple one and one we've seen from other footage. I don't love it from an art standpoint, but I certainly don't think it's bad, either.

If the problem people have with Superman is the oh so common "He's too powerful", this will give them pause. It also certainly does give him a “villainous” aura. Superman is clearly going willingly, albeit somewhat reluctantly, which makes you wonder what happened to cause that to take place. What was humanity's reaction to him, why is he being imprisoned/arrested? It makes you think a bit.

I can’t get upset that there’s a less than generic poster out there for MAN OF STEEL. It’s interesting, because I think the first major teaser for SUPERMAN RETURNS showed him floating above the Earth, almost godlike. This one is decidedly more human and down to Earth.
