Well it's nice to know that we were able to squeeze in some new pictures a bit of new info before it came to a close.

Given that we don't have a Superbowl spot going on for us, i wonder what avenue will be the next one used by Warner Bros. to release more new material...

Don't give up hope yet! We won't know for sure until Sunday or unless WB issue a release stating they have no intention of airing anything which last year they did but this year they've been kind of quiet...

Websites posting ad spots details don't have the complete list and WB's parent company has taken some ad time but all we know so far is that they're airing a Walking Dead promo.

I hope more viral marketing...like the deep space thing and some Daily Planet stuff would be cool. A Daily Planet website would also be nice to have...

They could put the next trailer in front of WB's 'The Great Gatsby' with Leo Di... Yah think?

It could be attached to it but I highly doubt it will premiere with it. If its not coming in March or April then with IM3 definitely.

Deadline makes it sound like Warner Bros. isn't putting anything out there for MOS during the Superbowl. Not sure how smart that is for them, but whatever...

Just read that. Bloody shame and as we've been discussing it for the last couple of weeks an absolute mind-boggler. Regardless of no Super Bowl spot, again the big NY Toy Fair is 5 days later with a ton of MoS merchandise and figures expected there and there'll be plenty of coverage.

I honestly expect to see the first MoS TV commercial in March, let alone a trailer.

The only reason why I think they might be avoiding a spot at the Superbowl is cause they feel it's too soon for an action trailer. An action trailer might show too much and wouldn't work with their marketing strategy of of slowing trickling out info. I'm sure they want to release everything based on their schedule and not be rushed. However they are really losing a chance to connect with a lot of people. And when you are rebuilding a brand like Superman, you gotta dig deep and not hold back.

That Nic Cage suit isn't as terrible as I imagined.

The thing is, I'm 90% sure Nic Cage's performance as Superman/Clark Kent would've been awesome. It's just that he doesn't look or sound like Superman.

The underpants on the Nic Cage suit are hilarious. And Nic Cage has those Italian traits that many people's old favorite here, Mangianello, also has. Totally wrong for Superman.

That said, it's like seeing the B89 suit modified for Cage. Fine for Batman, so damn wrong for Superman. I would've loved it if Superman Lives was like Batman and Robin in tone, but I gather those guys were going for an actually serious movie. Poor sods.

Yeah, it is a mind boggler. I don't understand why WB's is being so cheap.

It's not like they don't have the money for a 30 or even 60 second MOS Super Bowl spot to generate buzz.

Ridiculous.....

And if that's too close to the release, maybe WB's Bullet To The Head with Sly

Here's the thing, WB's got a lot riding on this one film, or rather it's success...
It's cool that they think themselves about the superbowl(honestly a few trailers in the months prior and all is forgotten).

However it just doesn't seem like the type of decision you make when you got a lot riding on a film.
I still remember the wonders the Superbowl did for Transformers 3 and Captain America. not so much thor though. The spots themselves have to be on point.

Wasn't the Superbowl the first footage of Captain America though? Same for TF3 maybe?

I'm not too worried about the lack of Superbowl spot. Everytime I look at hopefuldreamers sig I am happy (4 months and a bit!). I think alot of people around here kind of underestimate the appeal of Superman, and I think Superman Returns wasn't as bad to his appeal as some people here believe. As in I don't think it really damaged him to a Batman & Robin extent.

Yes this is a reboot and they want to get that point across and I think the TV spots and whatever will do that job. The main thing that will help this film is if it's actually good. I think word of mouth is the most important thing with movies these days. Particularly if there is suddenly a culture built around it and it becomes popular to go and see it.

Another note is that it seems we've finally gotten a confirmation supposedly on what the budget for the film is; which seems to be 225 million according to Empire.

Color me surprised since after the disappointment in SR, which only cost about 204 million to make, I would have assumed that Warner Bros. would be somewhat hesitant to dish out just as much, or even more money onto the character at this stage.

there is no other way to make a superman movie in 2013 on that scale with a lower budget IMO.

Tis true; I mean look at how much "Thor 1" suffered for having just a 175 million dollar budget. That film, considering the material and set of characters that they were dealing with, SHOULD have been bigger in scale, but it wasn't because they didn't have the budget for it, hence the obvious looking set pieces at times regarding the Frost Giant Planets and the less than exciting New Mexico sequence with some shoddy visual effects at times.

i agree. WB compared to the other ''studio'' at least makes every movie expensive as they can. GL never looked cheap. the choice how to use the effects made some shots look bad and cartoony but you could see that they were expensive.

Indeed; I still can't believe though that they thought alien look meant that they had to go entirely CGI since I've seen a good amount of films where they were able to design sets and costumes to look alien without relying entirely on CGI.

On another note, I'm glad that they kept emphasizing in the Empire article that they wouldn't depower Superman just for the sake or realism and that they were keeping faithful to the core of the character and it's just pretty much the approach towards the character that's being modernized in a sense.
