This movie is not Batman, and the director has an iffy track record at best. I say no foreshadowing without knowing if the movie even deserves a sequel. Green Lantern was almost unsalvageable, and look what they did to try and set up for some Pt. 2 that may never materialize?

All the more reason to foreshadow

Only in the loosest of ways, so that the sequel does not put itself into a corner before it even gets going.
Batman Begins did it well enough, we learn the Joker is around but nothing is set in stone that we have to see him. But I'm darned glad we did!

how do you figure?! Sequel Foreshadowing in a failed movie just pisses me off because it's nothing but more wasted potential on top of whatever I just had to to suffer through watching

Not to jump the gun here, but I really feel like MOS is gonna be a successful movie atleast. For one Superman the name itself puts people in seats that love or even know of superman.... This movie has to go all out and build franchise no matter what happens. If they do foreshadow and we don't get a sequel why does matter it matter anyway? It can only help IMO

Tell that to Green Lantern, which wasted a whole movies worth of character in the name of fanboy lip service. It was the final middle finger from a movie that was already quite poor.

No. At this point it's become more and more of a gimmick.

They should focus more on telling a great superman story rather than have easter eggs and in jokes for fans who are gonna see the movie anyway. Like someone else said, this is all or nothing. Focus on making Superman accessible to the general audience with ONE movie instead of trying to hint at more.

I think it's only smart to include it because obviously, it's setting up for Superman to be the next big thing. The pace Superman is going, before having a hookline for a sequel at the end, they are going to have to be firing on ALL cylinders throughout the movie to keep the fans interested for a climactic ending.

If they put out Man of Steel to what people are expecting for it to be and if they hit it like they did Batman Begins, then I can see the hook-line for the sequel being quick, to the point and leave the audience wondering with excitement.

IMHO, Brainiac is INEVITABLE for a sequel, it's time for Brainiac for the big screen.

Maybe have the ending do something like Superman being obviously bothered by Alien and Kryptonian-like language and interference through his Super hearing and the screen cut to one of Earth's satellites out in outer space orbiting Earth and then out of nowhere have Brainiac's ship with the intimidating tentacles slowly move by one of the satellites in an eerie fashion then end credits. Quick, easy but effective.

yup, I want Brainiack with his alien tech AND Psy abilities and inteligence to be a real challenge to Superman.


Then we get Darksiede for 3 a being who is actually physically stronger then Superman, even if he can't Fly

I agree with dru...that there should be no foreshadowing. After Superman Returns, no movie especially a superman movie should automatically assume they will get a sequel. They should definitely focus on making a good movie, not worrying about possible future movies.

But why can't they do both?

Just make sure the darn movie is good and a success, don't worry about a sequel until a sequel is an actual fact instead of an assumption. The last Superman movie worried about things making better sense in the sequel and said sequel never happened.

Well, if it's included for fan service or strictly to set up the sequel it can feel tagged on and cheesy like with the Marvel films. Begins is different because it is a natural outgrowth of the story. The Batman-Gordon scene with the Joker card is about the consequences of what happened in the film. It is the denouement of the story told as well as a teaser of the next film. There should only be foreshadowing if it is a natural part of the story being told in this film. That, in my opinion, is how Begins was able to "do both".

Cheasy??? How so? If anything The GL sequence where for no reason what so ever SInestro embraces Fear in the form of ring.

Yeah.... the end of Iron Man 2 seemed odd cuase it just almost didn't fit, but it worked.

Tony Stark showing up at the end of the increadible Hulk was CLASSIC.

Selvig being called in to look at the cube was also great.

The end of Cap hardly felt tacked on or cheasy

I think fear is the main reason some of us dont want foreshadowing....which I do understand, but I just don't see how it hurts the film if done right..??

I'd like to see maybe just a hint of a sequel teaser but then again what if the movie bombs?

Or how about this, why don't they leave the teaser for the DVD/BR release, back when Back To The Future was first released on VHS only then was the "TO BE CONTINUED" added.

I vote for no sequel hints but I don't that they won't hint at a sequel, at this point it's become mandatory for a wannabe blockbuster to hint at a sequel.
