But the truth is Superman Returns did happen and even though this trailer was a home run I'm just not sure if audiences are clamoring for another Superman movie. It will definitely do well but I don't expect it to break records of any kind. Having said that it has a solid chance to be the highest grossing film of the summer.
And if MOS goes on to be a huge hit, you can bet your ass the sequel is gonna do serious damage. Once people see the trailer and they see Superman going up against Lex Luthor and all that fun stuff it's gonna be a wrap.
I also expect the same sort of "bad taste disorder" to plague the next star wars films....
You only get that one shot to make a first impression...then you get a sequel. If only this had been the return.

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"
