In any case, I do think that MOS has the potential to gain the best reviews out of all of the comic book films of that year.

Plus, I keep loving on how everyone involved with the script keep saying that it's very character driven.
I wouldnt underestimate The Wolverine's BO potential, the character is still wildly popular despite the last movie, which itself made a lot. The GA seemed to love it and this one is meant to have an amazing script.

Plus I think Iron Man 3 will get great reviews, so MOS may have some competition from that. Dont get me wrong, as a Superman fan I MOS to be the best movie.

Cool find! So I guess this is our first look at what Metropolis is going to look like. Modern, yet not entirely "The City of Tomorrow" ? Well, I must say I quite like it...

I forgot all about The Wolverine. I should really check how that film's been doing.

Really happy it looks like we will have a city battle

I mean, I thought it would be the case, but people were starting to make me wonder if the Smallville one was the big showdown.

even if we don't get to see a Lex cameo, I really hope Lex's name is somehow tied to the rebuilding of Metropolis, be it through the Lexcorp/Luthorcorp logo on a sign, or some other mention of his name in a DP headline or other document.

They're doing that with Oscorp in Amazing Spider-Man.


The lack of the Lexcorp logo on the rebuilding Metropolis advertisement is pretty telling IMO.

Makes me wonder if there will even be a Lexcorp.

It's possible this Luthor will be different.

"They're doing that with Oscorp in Amazing Spider-Man."

Lex has been rebuilding Metropolis in comics way before that.

"Rise" is getting outplayed. They need to pick up a thesaurus. If Lex is around the same age as Clark, maybe he isn't a mogul yet.

well, I just hope we see or hear Luthor's name in some capacity.

his "presence" needs to be there; otherwise, it just won't feel like a Superman movie without him, imo.

oh......and to make Metropolis "rise", perhaps they will get the good citizens of the city to join hands and shout that TKDR "Rise" chant.........lol.

Why would Lex be around the same age as Clark?

As long as they get the Inception horn blazing in the background, I'm sold.

That's how it is in some stories. In Secret Origins, they are childhood friends.

On another note, I was just watching a clip of the 2006 MTV movie awards where Brandon Routh had presented a award to Christian Bale for his performance as Batman, and I was just wondering; it would be so cool and interesting to see if in the 2013 awards, assuming if bale was nominated and won it again, that Henry Cavil would be the one to present it to him.lol

^ that would be pretty cool.......yet sad at the same time.

sad in the fact that it would be a painful reminder that, out of all the top tier superheros, Superman was the one that failed to establish a successful movie franchise.

In fairness, I think the word 'rises' and it's use in the Batman title, says to me that that poster is an in joke.

Maybe I'm missing something

I think it's definitely a nod to TDKR, altough the word "rise" has been getting plenty of use in Hollywood lately.

guys, this is interesting......

on the Superman Homepage site, there is a link to an interview with the concept art designer for the S symbol in MOS.

http://filmsketchr.blogspot.com/2011...lks-about.html

you need to scroll down a bit to get to the part where it talks about Superman.

but, in that section, they are posting one of the set pics of Cavill in costume which we saw awhile back. However, the "belt" area in this pic is colored with red and black. Here it is:



I don't remember that coloration from the earlier pics......so this seems new to me.

here's the original pic that was posted on the boards a few months ago:



what do you think?

is this an indication of what the suit will really look like?

or, is this merely using some "fan-altered," photoshopped version of that set pic?

personally, I like it, as it adds a bit of color in that area that is missing without the trunks ( although I guess I'd prefer if it were yellow instead ).

Could be a mistake from someone's fan manip....like when some GL articles had mistakenly used a fan manip instead of a 'true' picture. I mean, that's not even a good manip. And I don't remember....was there an original of the below that didn't have the cape?

oh....wow.......I forgot about that!!

the original shot did NOT have the cape, if I remember correctly.

so.......my bad.......I guess that is a fan manip..........

still cool though.........lol.

and it reinforces my view that the middle "belt" portion does need some more coloring to break up the suit.

wonder what the next offical suit pic will look like........

I really want to say that's a manip.

I would like an official pic, maybe something more action-packed and in better light.

I don't think Lexcorp absolutely has to own everything, though. It seemed like in the comics, it got to the point that when someone opened their cabinet, Lex something or other was plastered all over every box and can. That's one of the things I don't like much about businessman Lex, they took it to obnoxious levels at times. I'd rather Lexcorp have a more specific focus, maybe in technology rather than being some ultra-conglomerate that owns everything and is run by a supervillain.
