Exactly. Show some confidence. If you need to overdo the money shots in the trailer, then do it.

I'll believe it when I see it. Not saying that Poni is wrong, just saying I'm getting tired of these nonstop "WB is going to release this or that" rumors from various sources concerning MOS and JL, when few of these rumors ever come true. Poni's word isn't a "confirmation." Only an official word is confirmation.

No, actually you did. Your words were (paraphrasing): "Trust me, I know how this works. I work in marketing."

Poni is as golden Gill. If he says we're getting posters this month, then there's a 90% chance we're getting them.

Well, Superman fans are impatient since this film got pushed back. So I don't blame them. We've had to wait longer for MoS and fans are tired and worried, but I don't see WB dropping the ball on its only cash cow at this point. WB is off to a crappy year.

I'm just curious what the reaction would be to that exact Ironman trailer had it simply followed IM2.

Inversely, I wonder what the response this superman media would be had Superman Returns not existed.

It's amazing how public perception works.
One film can do wonders.

Regarding how Nolan's 'brand' has fared in this marketing scheme, yes.

I did say that and I do work in the marketing field but that doesn't make me an insider!! (especially since WB isn't my employee). Maybe that wasn't clear the first time around, well now it is and either way the matter is closed for me.

Anyway, any of you think there's any chance of MOS appearing at WonderCon?

I'm still not confident IM3 is going to be a good film. IM2 had good trailers as well and I hated it.

I'm just saying that unlike MOS atleast IM3 is being marketed.

If The marketing of this film does not pick up I am worried MOS won't make a profit at the BO. I just want a damn Superman trilogy to be proud of. You would think that since MOS is the make it or break it for further superhero films at Warner would be more pro-active.

"Superman Unbound" is premiering at WonderCon. Maybe they will attach a MoS trailer before it to surprise the attendees. One can always hope

WB is on a huge losing streak right now. MOS's performance is important.

Superman Returns was marketed like this and it only did okay, well under what WB had hoped for.

Yet he's being promoted as if he did. His brand is being employed at will by WB. The atmosphere and tone of the film only adds to the public perception.

It comes out in less than two months...that's why we're seeing more Iron Man 3 than Man of Steel. Man of Steel will get the blitzkrieg marketing we all want probably here in the next two to three weeks. Then, you won't be able to escape it.

Unless you count Argo. It's hilarious, of all the movies to beat Weinstein's for BP, it had to be Affleck's pity party.

Only the trailers have mentioned his name, fleetingly. And they've also mentioned that Zach Snyder is directing, and that he was the director of 300.

Sorry, but the marketing isn't revolving around Nolan. And if someone is in the GA and knows enough about movies to know who Christopher Nolan is, then they are also smart enough to know the difference between a director and a producer.
