Clark been told by his father that he's not from here and discovering the ship.

This one us pure speculation but if Lois knows Clark has powers before he's Superman and us actually aware that they are one and the same then that's something that happened on Smallville too.

Tbh I know a lot of this could be taken from comic stories/films/tv shows over the years but with Smallville been the most recent you have to believe that it had some bearing on the film.

Other than those I can't think right now but there's definite similarities between what we're getting and previous incarnations but I guess that could be a subconscious thing from the writers/designers etc. I mean its Superman there will always be similarities to the past and it's in no way a bad thing.

I keep thinking that Zod's armor, and Faora's, for that matter, is probably some kind of solar energy collector designed to help them attain the saturation Clark absorbes from 20+ years on our planet. Add in that their armor may already be built for extreme levels of damage and maybe they use onboard weapons and whatever henchmen Faora has with her to weaken Superman while they wait for their powerlevels to reach his level.

And building off that, I'm going to do some more conjecturing.

Faora has taken the spot given to Ursa in the original film, despite a concerted effort by Geoff Johns to make her Zod's main female sidekick in the comics. I'm thinking Faora got her old spot back to build off her original unique attribute in the comics, i.e. her pressure point based martial arts mastery. Maybe while Zod's a General with conventional soldiering training and experience, Faora was the close combat expert, so when Zod and her are weaker, she takes on Clark by herself becuase while she's weaker she can overcome that disadvantage with her knowledge of Kryptonian anatomy. After Superman does defeat her, he's left to face Zod at full strength, though the General lacks Faora's training, thus giving us a more intuitive mid-air brawl like we see in the trailer.

Zod won't lack faora fight training, how can a dude that run the whole military not have combat skills, it don't make sense, Zod will be the one that train faora.

Yep there are some similarities in the comics as well, but all good points. And yes, that Lois and Clark trailer is awesome.

Goyer said the only Smallville episodes he's seen are the pilot and the ones his buddy Geoff wrote. And he reads lots of comics, as evidenced by the cherry-picking of the mythos he's done for the Dark Knight movies and the comics he actually writes. I think odds are higher that he got them from the comics.

A lot of it sounds like Secret Origin. Maybe Johns took inspiration from Smallville and Goyer took inspiration from Johns?

I see it ending in 3 ways.

1. Zod and co get sent to the phantom zone.

2. Zod and co retreat and escape.

3. Zod and co get killed some kinda way.

Zod either gets killed and everyone else is then sent to the Phantom Zone by Superman
Zod and his army are sent to the phantom zone by Superman
Zod and his army are sent to the phantom zone when the Black Zero has a meltdown and they are stuck there with no foreseeable way out.

........I may have mentioned something that is......semi-spoilerish lol

The more I hear whispered about this Black Zero, the more excited I get, sicne I like how they're slowly becoming an integral part of the last days of Krypton.

Oh, he'll have fighting skills, just not in the same depth as Faora. She's the expert in her field, he's the expert in all others.

It's really going to show off Michael Shannon's skills as actor. Looking forward to that, although untimely. But now a days, it's never a good time for a movie of this nature.

I figured it out last night when I had an email from the publicist to put it on my site. I was like "OH."

Finally just saw the Iceman trailer. I can't wait to see this. It's about time Shannon got a leading role. Although I guess he was main lead in take shelter. He's a great actor for many different kinds of movies. Especially character driven movies like the Iceman seems to be.

no disrespect but i dont like iceman trailer too much they are making him sympathetic and humanizing him

the man was a monster he killed a man at the age of 18 with a maltov cocktail because he insulted him in a bar.he also shot a random man in the face with a bow and arrow just to see if it worked

I saw that... Very disturbing. And I agree with Project862006, I don't agree with making murders "cool".
