It's a cool poster... other than the fact that it's blurry

Like what are they trying to achieve with that effect? lol

It's possible there wasn't thought put into it. That's generally what people look like when they're hand cuffed.

Why is the film still so low quality! His hair looks so much better than the first promo.

I didn't expect this kind of image for a poster, but Cavill continues to look fantastic as Supes.

I don't think we need the spit curl exactly, but I would like a little bit more wavy/bigger hair as Superman. This actually looked pretty good in terms of style (obviously needs to be black though)

either way, a decent poster, all in all.

That's an official poster? I thought it was fan made.

Terrible quality on the picture. That is a striking image though and will get people talking, you don't often see Superman under arrest that will get people curious.

I assume they just wanted to show something to get the buzz going again. But probably don't have any amazing images in the form of posters just yet. I wouldn't be surprised if this was an actual still from the movie. I am underwhelmed, which makes me yearn to see the Hobbit trailer even more. I guess that's a good thing?

Probably because the choice of image is questionable. This sort of poster isn't normally how one would kickstart an awesome advertisement campaign.

Although I do love how much taller Superman is than the other soldiers.

Yet people are talking which is the point, no?

Took a quick look at Ain't It Cool as the views in their Talkbacks are usually...questionable at best and was quite surprised at some of the comments:
http://www.aintitcool.com/node/59861

Yes there are the jokes and obvious throwaway comments but then you come across these gems where the image could of actually created hype for some when there was none:
Quote:
Continuation: "And yet the consequences of these choices are greatly magnified and will determine the course of humanity." (More inside.)
by chaunceygardiner

And here we see Supe humbleing himself before mankind, bowing to their whims and triffleing desire for power and control, their fear of things which they themselves, the lawmakers, cannot understand.

This is indeed interesting.

Best, and most provocative, teaser image we've had for a film in a very very long time.

I tell you what, I truly am rooting for Mr. Synder and team to knock this out of the park.

I understand the imagery of the poster and what they were going for (provocative), but I am hugely disappointed. This would've made for a great HD image, which could have been dropped as a piece of marketing, but not for an official poster.

Not to mention it looks fan-made and that there are many SHH users here who have made better posters for various superhero movies.

I think that the general audience is going to be interested in the poster.

I like it, but I could make about a billion jokes at the poster's expense.

Yeah well, I dont think you will ones you see the movie. Cause I'm just betting that this very poster has a lot to say about the sub-context of the film it self. If you wanna make fun of superman posters, look at SR's. That'a about the worst marketing campaign ever (with the exception of two of its posters)
