I say nay good sir. At least until I see the movie. Sure there's gotta be more to it.
Isn't it because of how they've evolved? Humans have evolved on a planet with stronger gravity to those on Mars. I think it makes sense enough for a fantasy film like this.

That's exactly it. Our muscles have evolved to work against earth's gravity. Since Mars's gravity is weaker than earth's gravity you would be stronger and be able to jump further on Mars.

I'm kinda sorry I brought up Superman.

Originally the Golden Age Superman had no actual powers. It was just that Krypton was a larger planet and on Earth he could jump farther and was stronger compared to Earthlings... y'know.. like John Carter is on Mars. The rest was added later.

That's what I get for being an old school fan though.

Makes sense to me. It's like in DBZ when Goku trains in high gravity to get stronger.

I'm going to ignore the terrible trailers and see this in theaters based mostly on Stanton and my desire to see Lynn Collins sword fight in metal bikinis for two hours.

That is very obvious given the time frame.

As for the film. The fan trailers look awesome so I am so seeing this opening weekend.

I just hope it is somewhat faithful to the novel.

I'm surprised they haven't been pushing the writer/director. If feel like there should be a commercial that says "remember all of these great films that everyone in the world loves and made tons of money? The guy who did those is doing this, but with real people and crazy action sequences."

Can't say the trailers do much for me. The fan made one reminded me of Cowboys and Aliens.

It could be decent. I've seen decent movies with bad trailers before.

You shouldn't be. That for me is the primary appeal of seeing this movie. If not for the whole Superman-in-reverse angle the story has then I doubt I'd ever see it.

Vulcans are 3 times as strong as humans because of living in heavier gravity than earth, and then as mentioned we have Goku's gravity training in DBZ, so the idea has been kept alive in sci-fi over the years.

It's a simple enough Idea, it's just exaggerated in this concept. Mars is half the size of earth with a little less then half it's gravity meters per second squared.

It stands to reason that a human would be able to jump twice as high/far. Michael Jordan a little more. That being said fantasy movies have people doing all sorts of things these days so why complain.
