Apparently, depth of emotion and drama is now considered dark, since Batman had those same qualities and is a "dark" character.

Whenever I see those words associated with Man of Steel in someone's post, I know to immediately skip over it, as that person clearly has no idea what they're talking about.

People think the trailer is dark because it literally is dark. The shooting style has a contrasty, sci-fi noir feel to it remeniscent of the Fleischer series.
