And that's the other side of the track. I can see it that way too but I'm trusting I will be so distracted by my own hype I'll miss those detractors. The second viewing is another story. With previous movies I didn't notice the huge blunders the first time around until I left the theater. I was blinded by my own excitement. I just knew something wasn't right. lol

Yeah it's why I'm just getting accustomed to the fact that they are going with the Jor-El prophecy/destiny thing. And also that Justice League is gonna tie into it. Just trying to get comfortable with it all now. Even though it's the wrong decisions to me.

Those fans sure got a good long time to accept that the red trunks are gone.

And this is their occasion, the end of January, because waiting the end of February would be too late..
The occasion would be a Superbowl trailer, in February 3

I'd love to see a Superbowl spot, but, WB seems to snub that event ( )..A 30 seconds action packed Man of Steel spot, with superman fighting with zod.. But now I'm getting used being disappointed each month, with Empire first..

I don't think this is real, but Comic Book Movie published a video with, supposedly, a photo of Krypton in MOS. The music sounds a lot like Hans Zimmer, don't you think?

EDIT: It's false, it's taken from Star Trek 2009 art

The music is all over the place. I'm not sure where that picture came from, but it's an interesting piece of concept art at least. Everything else seems extremely fan-made.

I've noticed that unlike the marvel films, MoS is decidedly not marketing the villains(nor really the female lead).

Given Supermans track record with villains in the public eye, I would hope that changes soon.

I wish I had the will power, I really do.

I was so bad throughout Smallville for spoilers and then dissecting episodes after that I think at some point I sort of forgot to just enjoy the show! I would watch episodes and literally be taking notes on what I was gonna bring up on the forums

I really do want MOS to be a completely immersive experiance that shuts my brain up and just has me on cloud 9.

But I know there are already certain things I already have in my head that will have me thinking of you guys and our discussions if they happen in the film (I.e. If Supes kills Zod somehow, I know my mind will go straight to how much I'm gonna moan about it on here)

It's just the curse of fandom, especially internet discussion forum fandom.

Yeah I agree with this too. Silly example, but I know if I'd walked in not knowing what Amy's hair colour was and had time to let that niggle go, it might have bugged me.

Obviously there may be bigger and much worthier examples of that as we get closer to the release.

Hey, Hope:

Isn't there an extra day on your MOS countdown sig? It's 148, no?

(Don't be dragging this out more than necessary. )

Yes, I've just got in from work and haven't had time to update it today

But in fairness, there have been times since I start this sig at 500 days to go, where i've been over a week out and no ones noticed

I can definitely see your point. lol And I agree with the JL not being right for MOS' legacy that I'm wishing for.

That had me literally laughing out loud. But I understand. It's hard to be as disciplined as I need to be to really go in as green and ignorant as I plan to. Especially for a movie I feel like I might have been waiting on for over 30 years. But I am determined.

For instance I have no idea what discussions have gone on about Zod and ideas of his demise. As soon as I saw that convo starting I clicked out of the forum. I've been doing pretty good so far.

Another example is when that description came out for Trailer 2 I didn't read a single line until after I saw it. Just incase it was legit and would spoil it for me. Thank goodness I stuck to my guns because it was scene for scene. I absolutely loved it because I didn't have any preconceived notions or judgements. I know if I didn't watch the fuzzy Comic Con footage I would have loved it even more.

I mean I love reading and jumping in on speculation but I find it that it's more fun for me when I finally see the movie if I don't go too deep.

It feels like we're back at square one (last year during August-November) where we're running (or are already) out of new and interesting things to discuss about regarding the film due to the lack of promotion/info/material to go by off of.

From what I've seen it's been very divisive.

I really really wish I hadn't seen the trailer description. When I first read it, I actually thought it sounded okay and pretty plausible, and I liked the Martha/Clark exchange immediately... but then I got caught up in the whole 'there's no way they would not show krypton, there's no way they would have no real action scenes etc etc' and started treating it as false and getting my hopes up for some other ideal version of a first trailer.

So yeah, I have to admit, the second the trailer started I got a sense of anti climax. It's only on repeat viewings that I started to realise what an incredible trailer it actually is... and that's only because of mass fan pre conceptions.

I definitely want to avoid anything like that happening again, so yeah i'll be avoiding all 'descriptions', fake or not, of any trailers or scenes from the movie.

I think you're taking the right approach, and i'm gonna try and do the same from now on. Just dipping your feet into the water, not taking a swim in the ocean and getting lost at sea

Yeah, I definitely stop reading posts the second I feel a specific detail coming on. It works most of the time but every now and then I get an unfortunately nugget.

I thought for ages it would be too hard, but the more I think about it i'm getting too scared to WANT to read spoilers now.

I've really put my first viewing of this movie on a pedestal now. Been waiting for it for years, going to see it at an IMAX theatre in another city so it's going to be more of a whole day event, and if I spoil it for myself it'll just be such a shame.

I don't wanna walk out of there knowing it could have been any better if I had done something differently.

Which is why I get so caught up about whether to see it in 3D or not aswell :S
