Exactly. It sure is refreshing.

I think people here mistake WBs lesser marketing of this film as a weakness when I think it's something else: confidence.

And that was exactly my point, lol.

But as I said, who knows? It all comes down to how it's handled.

I guess it would all depend on how/why it goes down.

Michael Shannon already said Zod is not your typical general evil villain. Killing Faora would kind of go against that. But then again, it's all about context.

I'm not saying that Zod shouldn't kill. I'm not even saying that he shouldn't kill Faora.
What I said is, villains killing their own henchmen is an overused trope (someone in this thread even mentioned Vegeta doing it), BUT that it all depends on how they handle the scene.

Cosmic Book News is fairly unreliable. In this particular case, I'd be inclined to believe in NukeTheFridge.

I just want to see what Faora looks like in her Kryptonian outfit. How long will we have to wait for that you think? I hope its soon. I honestly thought we would have seen a full body pick of Zod by now, so I don't know what to think. If I end up seeing Zod or Faora full on in a toy or statue before the real thing, I will be so upset.

Same thing happened for the Lizard in TASM right? A shot of a Pez Dispenser or something was the first thing people saw of him.

I wonder how many minions Zod brings with him since there are two ships landing on the Kent farm.

Just him and Faora. They don't like to share a bathroom.

If Faora sees any dongs, she chops it off and puts it on her mantelpiece.

Kryptonian language on Krypton, kryptonian to kryptonian would be cool. Personally though, I think some dialouge, like Jor El talking to Kal through hologram should be in english. I love the dialogue we have heard from Jor El so far and it wouldn't be near as powerful in a made up kryptonian language.
I think that would be awesome. The hologram speaking english would be an issue though.

I guess they couldn't get away with her pinning them to her suit, huh?

The spikes on the suit were originally there to keep the dongs attached.

The guy who created the Avatar language created the Kryptonian language for the film. It will probobly be spoken in Krypton flashback sequences.

Zod speaks it Superman when they first meet and then speaks English saying "Do you know your native tongue Kal-El?" So it is clear that Kryptonian's know both languages..

Interesting. I wonder how Zod insta-learns English.
