We don't have much more to talk about, sadly.

Yep; you'd think that Warner Bros. would have started releasing more stuff right about now.

They released exactly the amount of stuff they needed to. They would receive absolutely no benefit spoiling people with additional stuff in the middle of January.

I hardly think one image of Zod would be 'spoiling people'... it's just a good idea to get a buzz going about the villain.

Sure, nearer the time they will spoil us hopefully with lots of promo photos and stills, but I don't think it's unreasonable to have expected something more than we've seen so far pic wise.

I mean, what do we have. A still of Superman in front of the busted up bank vault - which we also see in the trailer. An image and a poster of Supes walking with military in handcuffs - which we also see in the trailer. And Superman looking pensive with the military at the ready behind him - which we also see in the trailer!

At this point, the only thing we have that isn't basically from the trailer is the original poster.

Eh Catching Fire is being released in November and has released more pics than a movie coming out in June. I'm not saying release everything but it would be nice to have one non trailer spoiled picture. I do hope we see a hint of an action scene by April but the way WB is going I'm unsure if we will. I'm engaging in a bit of hyperbole...maybe? I hate when movies are spoiled to death but I want to see something action related by March. I know the action is there but I'd like to see a some of it because after the last movie...

either WB is extremely confident with what they've seen of MOS, or they are taking it for granted that people will see MOS cuz of the Superman name.........

Could be both, but I'd be pretty perplexed if we didn't get anything new on a substantial level by the time January concludes.

All depends on their strategy. Tough to compare the strategy for a sequel to a uber successful film with the relaunch of a franchise. I'm not saying that MOS has had perfect marketing so far, but still a possible unfair comparison.

learn from history then. don't do the same marketing like green lantern and SR.

Green Lantern - last minute and in a massive proportion.
SR – releasing all amateur and poor promotional pics.

If anything they should be marketing it more than a sequel to a successful film, so I guess the comparison is bad from that angle.

So I'll bluntly say with no comparisons to other films that I think that the early marketing has been lackluster and I know that people aren't paying attention quite this early but I think that WB has not been doing a good job and I'm skeptical of the job they will do two months before the release of the film because of it. I guess I shouldn't be concerned as long as I dig the film because I'm not going to lose any cash.

I mean it wasn't even on the cover of it's WB owned Entertainment Weekly about the films they are looking forward to. Not only is that dumb, it's really freakin odd.

Maybe they will turn it around but if we don't see some real marketing materials by say the. middle or end of February I'm going to be confused why WB is refusing to push their 200mil tentpole.

I think the top right and bottom left were; a couple of shots of the tumbler followed quickly after.

Those were the days. So much expectation, and life so full of hope.

Even better when the expectations and hopes were fulfilled in form of a fantastic trilogy!

Yeah, but I think the build up to BB was a really exciting time for us Batfans. If nothing else, it was the best time for discussion of all the great things about the comics, and which were the greatest strengths on which to draw.

After BB came out, it descended into "teh realistic".

Batman Begins underperformed at the box office so I don't know what point is trying to be made? I'm not one of those douchebags who wants all of the marketing materials to be released a year out but it isn't a year out from the film's release. I was a wait and see person just at the end of last year because I'm not one of those people. But it's 6 months out and I'm not asking for much, just one or two photos of the villians and supporting cast.

I'm not too concerned. I remember in the couple of weeks leading up to the release of the trailer in December, you'd think WB had pushed the movie again with all the *****ing and moaning going on around here about "they've ruined everything, they want the movie to fail, wahhhhhh no marketing." Then the trailer came out and everyone shut the hell up... for a minute. Same thing will happen every time we get a new piece of... anything. All the way up until the movie's release. And then? "Where's the sequel why haven't they started on the sequel I want the sequel noooooooow."

Hey, I'm not attacking anyone in particular. I'm making a, granted, dramatic generalized appraisal of the attitude I've witnessed around here for months regarding the marketing. Bottom line, it's never enough, and when we do get something... it's still not enough. Moral of the story: It'll never be enough until they release the entire movie. Admitting that is the first step on the road to inner peace.

Also, I had a rough night at work after an 18 hour day, so I'm a bit uncharacteristically salty this morning... and not sorry 'bout it.
