I still get chills when I watch TV spot #5 and Jor-El says to Superman "You can save them. You can save all of them".

No doubt! Crowe will have a superb performance, but I am hearing that Shannon is going to steal the show.

I'd rather Jor-El's hologram as seen in the Comic-Con trailer simply be a single pre-recorded message. It would make the most sense given the interview hints about Kal-El being conflicted regarding Zod and company and how he has no one else from whom he can learn about Krypton. I don't like interpretations like STM or Smallville where Superman can constantly go back to an omnipotent AI version of his father for advice.
In light of what we know now and Goyer's recent comments, John Byrne's version is an influence. In Byrne's version of Jor-El in the comics, we see Jor-El appear to Clark in many different places, in the kitchen, outside on the farm etc. And it is technology beyond Earth's understanding. Jonathan even hits the hologram and it could've electrocuted him. And Jor-El shows Krypton images to Clark, kind of "projecting" Clark there (which we've seen variations of in other media as well.)

So it'll be a good reason to keep Jor-El for sequels and also for Clark (and us) to see and learn more of Krypton's world, its history etc. and maybe for later plot points and characters.

I think it'll be good to see more of Krypton and also for Clark to better understand it.

But from what I understand of Smallville the TV show, I don't think (or hope) Jor-El will have as direct an influence on Clark as he did on that show (or even Brando's version.) More
about Krypton's past.

Great photo.

btw the shot we saw of Jor-El appearing above Earth, talking to Superman- maybe he can appear on any Kryptonian ship since they all have the tech. Whether it's the crashed scout ship or one of Zod's ships...

Well, the current thought is that the AI emanates from the Kryptonian Command Key that Jor-El steals for Kal-El's ship from the Genesis Chamber. He just needs to plug it into compatible systems for the hologram to appear.

Looks like Crowe has done an awesome job. Can't think of another actor who has the right voice, screen presence, and credibility in general to replace a legend like Brando.

His "my son is twice the man you are" is my favorite line from him so far. The casting of all of Clark's parents is fantastic.

As long as Jor-El doesn't start taking away and giving back Kal-El's powers and stuff like that, as we have seen in past incarnations, then this AI Jor-El should be good. If it is about unlocking Kryptonian technology etc. it should be interesting.

When I think about MOS's take on Jor-el versus Brando's characterization, they're such polar opposites of each other.

In the Donner Version, Jor-el basically condemned Clark to live an lonely life and gave him the guilt trip on how him wanting a happy life for himself was considered selfish and that he needs to be an hero all the time.

Whereas Crowe's Jor-el seems to only encourage Clark and wants him to decide on his own on what he (Clark) should become.
