Not imo. It just makes it even more grainy, thus more pixelated. Also prefer it more subdued since they're going for that angle. It was a design choice, nothing to do with laziness. You know this.

I know, but That's because I did it in two minutes with the most basic (and free) picture editing software. And working with the low-res poster. But the blurriness itself is too much imo. Anyway, here is just color corrected without blur removal:



I don't mind subdued colors, but I think they over-did it (just like with the first suit reveal). The picture could just as well be black and white, Cavill's flesh tone looks like a dead man, or Bizzaro and the suit lacks the pop, imo of course.

I can only hope that the entire marketing campaign will not go for such dark and depressing style but balance it out a bit, because more people are put off by it than not. We are living in such times when people do need and want a hero like Superman and this style sends all the wrong signals.

Of course, none of this will matter in a week. (Unless if Snyder went and desaturated the colors in post so that everything is darker and grainer than it was in the CC footage.... )

Does the one you're working on now look like this G.Godfrey? I gave it a shot.

Im not actually working on it I just did it for myself quickly to see how it would look with a bit more pop to the colors. But at least in yours, Cavill's flesh tone appears normal.

Yeah lol I caught that bizzaro post too. It's kinda like they're saying something with that. Maybe that's the nod to the fans. "This is not goody Superman you know from the old films". Hahaha I'm reaching.

The teaser did have both. The final shot was very vibrant and bright and all the shots before it desaturated and bleak. Dont know how much this will be apparent in the final movie. It's possible that the pictures' vibrance will change along with the story (and Clark's own transformation). I'm also guessing the potential Smallville/Kentfarm-flashbacks will be lush in color. I'm sure it'll look great and feel right once it starts to roll.

The full trailer will probably display this more than the teaser. And feature the right amount of colorful pop as well while still being tastefully done. I think the CC-footage proved that despite the video-quality.
It's just these first PR-stills that are given the different-approach treatment to let people know that it is that. Different, serious, non-campy and very latent if you will.
And I for one love that. MOS will no doubt be one of the biggest movies and actioners of next year and they're being coy and underplaying it knowing they have a crazy trailer that'll win people over in the end.

Agree with everything Rust said, but I'll also add that I'm taking these dark teaser posters to convey how this movie is still wrapped in mystery and is out to peak the interest of the GA. Once the first big trailer 'reveals' this film to the world, I doubt the rest of the promotional material or posters will look quite as dark as the handcuffs one, we'll start to see stuff which matches more the footage and its contrast/lighting from the new trailer.

It will be. We've already heard that the movie itself is a lot different than the signal it's been sending so far, both visually and tonally.
