I don't really think so. I mean if you want to make it sharper and more properly aligned or something you run the risk of making it look too doctored, staged, and well... just fake looking.

I think the blur is done to draw the eye into the center. The soldiers are blurred on the sides. Supes is sharper and features the red accents. It's really cleverly done to stand out, not to mention it's not the generic poster we're used to seeing for genre films so it will stand out when displayed in theatres. I think the fact that it's thought-provoking too whilst answering no questions. 'Why is Superman being captive by the military?' it forces people to ask?

Everyone is saying that it's an exact shot from the film. But watching the Comic-con trailer it's not really. In the comic-con shot the soldiers are farther apart and the shot is taken more from the ground pointing up.
