Releasing online pictures now isn't going to make a difference in how well this does at the box office.
But Avatar is as usual a Jars Cameron overhyped piece of crap whuch people seem to love. I swear he's the most overrated director ever.

How will it be too late? It's not an underground indie movie, there's plenty of public awareness. People said the same thing about TDKR and that did well.

TDKR had to follow TDK and many people were apprehensive about it since it didn't have Heath. This is a relaunch of the world's most famous superhero, directed by the guy who did 300 and Watchmen, which were also pretty well-liked films. The trailers we have have been successful, and when it picks up with TV spots near release the GA will care more about it. Releasing a picture of General Zod 5 months out does nothing but appease message boarding fans.

No but the marketing itself has been very slow,mim not just talking about a Zid reveal but in general, a Superbowl spot should be happening. WBs should have put a spot on that, so many people watch the Superbowl it's a real missed opportunity. They should be putting this film out there and they really aren't its getting lost in a sea of Star Trek and Iron Man 3. I'm not saying its detrimental to do this but the next trailer really needs an emphasis on the action.

You're personal opinion on the movie is irrelevant. The fact is, Avatar's public presence was exactly zilch until August of the year of its release, roughly four months before it opened.

And "Superman" is easily as big a name as "James Cameron". You're overreacting.

My point is people love James Cameron movies whether they're good or not. His films are so very yoked woke jump on the train.

Supernan s damaged from the previous film, he needs the right marketing and the slow approach might not be it.

Ok let me start by saying, that maybe I have been watching one to many conspiracy theorist videos on Youtube.

But when I saw the Zod symbol, I noticed some familiarity to it, but I couldn't put my finger on it...


Until I remember something;

I know that for many SUPERMAN is a great American Icon, and that for a lot of people in USA, Communism is the big bogeyman out there... so:

I wouldnt be surprised if Comicfan is on to something, though it might have been more spot on in the 80s. Now I'm not so sure. But still...

will know for sure once we actually hear Zod's voice, apparently there will be an accent as Shannon has confirmed, he said he has to do some voice over work and that the accent was killing him, so maybe the Kryptonian language will sound like a Russian accent lol

It doesn't really look that much like the communist symbol. Only the curved shape really matches. But really it looks more like a horseshoe or something than anything else.

Haha, now if Fox News starts saying Zod is a commie we'll know he's on to something.

That point is flawed. People genuinely loved the movie not because it's a James Cameron movie. It's because they thought it was genuinely a great movie. Period. Look, I get that you don't like his films. But just because you dislike them doesn't mean that everybody else is wrong in thinking they're good.

People have pointed it out without crazy pictures. It's not really convincing until we actually find out what Zod's motives are. Zod doesn't really come off as a communist. He's fascist.

Some communist factions are just as fascist as far right-wingers. Stalinist commies, for instance (aka what TDKR's Bane basically was).

I wouldn't put it past them to have this subliminal extremist communist connection to Zod.
