Yeah this is exciting. Opening with the fleshed out world of Krypton and then moving to those lovely, anamorphic, raw shots of Kansas and Alaska is going to be so powerful.
I think the tone is definitely achieving something much more real than any other of these movies. I think that's bold, because the greatest thing about this, and any other fiction really is how we use it to reflect on ourselves and our own society and what we can learn. By making the world feel that much closer to ours and then having Superman in it just makes it that much easier.
I think Snyder has pulled it off too. I feel he stumbled a bit with it in Watchmen. The world in that felt gritty and real. But then the characters would move and act in a very surreal way as well as all the stylized slowmo.
