I agree. He doesn't sound like The Joker. I accept issuing a threat is Jokery, but it's not exclusive behaviour just to him at all.

Yeah he's pretty much speaking the same way as he does in real life.

He doesn't sound like the Joker one iota in my opinion. Why do people keep making that comparison? Is it simply because he is hijacking the media and making threats?

I can't wait to see the mask. I like what i'm seeing in the new static clip. At this point it looks like the engineer from Prometheus only cooler.

I can see Supes's response now:

"Your transmission has been received. I am currently obeying authorities and ask to speak with you. However, surrendering is not an option and dictatorship will not be tolerated. Keep the people of Earth out of this and we can settle on this conflict elsewhere. Is that clear, General?"

Yeah.. he's not putting on a voice. If anything, it's the other way around, being as Shannon's older than the late Ledger. That being said.. the manner in which he speaks.. it's like a real guy. No theatrics, just a direct threat. But there is kind of a bit of a reverb, as if he's breathing through a mask, which is what the Halloween costume and short bits of video seem to indicate.

First time dropping into this thread in particular but I'm curious (sure it's been brought up already and I'm also sure it's bit of a no-brainer almost), anyone think that mask will have some cool transformer mechanism that goes in and out of his suit? I'm curious about that first reveal and I'm sure it'll be awesome.

I'm glad he's not putting on some weird accent. It sounds like a hardened general, just a regular joe, which he probably was on Krypton and just maintained that.

People are saying he sounds like the Joker now dear lord come on.

Whoever said Zod sounds like a man in control hit the nail on the head. Perfect way to describe him from the TV spot

And they very rarely have RDJ wear the full suit any more, nor was the actually built suit ever often used for any kind of action scene.

Agreed, I love that he sounds normal. Unlike the Mandarin who sounds ridiculously terrible

He doesn't sound like the Joker at all. But people are going to see the Joker in every arch-villain from here on out.

I'm really curious how the helmet and his armor design's going to play into the Krypton scenes. Some stories have the mineral translation to Kryptonite occur even before the planet blows up, so if they were to incorporate kryptonite in this film, it'd be interesting to see it as a "green death" that heralds Krypton's destruction. Maybe All the armor we see is to keep them safe from the radiation and after this movie we'll see that Clark has a radiation protective suit for later films.

Normally I would agree with you but this Superman just might.
