A few days back Geoff Boucher tweeted about finishing and filing a cover story for EW. He usually handles Superhero stuff. That doesn't mean it's happening this week. But I figure we get an EW MOS cover story in April.

That said, so far the movie does look better than IM2, IMO.
Well to be fair although I agree that Rises was the weakest of the series it was still damn good IMO I think it definitely broke the 3rd Superhero film curse. Iron Man 3 looks awesome and I will see it but I have to admit I'm not excited for it and I wasn't all that excited for Rises either, maybe by the 3rd time it really does just feel abit like oh this again.

I'm the most excited to see Superman take out some robots. It'll give me fleischer mechanical monster vibes.

Star Trek looks pretty awesome. That video of the light show in London got me all pumped.

Not a star treck fan so meh.
And iron man 3 could and I emphasize COULD be good. I actually initially liked IM2, and now I just find it decent.

I fully admit I am in the minority, but I prefer The Dark Knight Rises to The Dark Knight. But then again, I like Batman Begins better than The Dark Knight as well.

Well book solicitations mentions "3 Kryptonian criminals arriving in Smallville" and yeah mo-cap guy could of been a stand in for Zod or a robot. Likewise with Faora in the desert, could of been a stand-in there on set the help block out the scene and whatnot before the actress arrived.

I also prefer TDKR over TDK. Regardless of how we rank it in the trilogy, it doesn't fall in the trilogy curse stuff at all. It's an incredibly ambitous and generous movie, and while it's flawed, it's a damn epic superhero movie.

~Gu3ree~ Superman doesn't manage to save 10,000 people. He doesn't come out as a big hero in the movie. he's just pissed at General Zod. He isn't necessarily concerned about the people.

Hey guys
First time posting but I have been a long time lurker. I don't know why it took me forever to join. This is easily my most anticipated movie of the year and I hope you and I have a fun ride together.

Trailer has been approved for almost two weeks now. Iron Man 3 will be released in the UK on the 18th of April.
Normally, I would have wagered WB would attach it to IM3 around this period, but since they seem to not really care for Europeans (compared to say Disney with Avengers, where the film was even released earlier in the UK), I think the trailer will show up late April.

Actually I think we all believe that the trailer that was approved was for home video.

As soon as I read "Lurker" I was quickly reminded of Supes in SR looking through Lois's window all stalker like.

I hope we get new posters this week. Do you guys think we'll probably get a Jor El and Lara poster first?

It sure does, I've never been a Trekkie but I loved the last one and this one looks epic. Like I said with Iron Man ill see it they've already got me ticket. Its just I can't really feel excited because I just want to see Man of Steel.

Really? Nevermind me then

I'm glad we're getting IM3 so early. WB needs to learn to appreciate the UK!

I anticipated last week but here we are. I wonder when they'll start now. They've decided to give 42 a boost instead.

I saw the trailer before an early screening of GI Joe 2 (the theater showed trailers of IM3, STID and MoS). The 3D really impressed me. Since the first trailer was short on action shots it is tough to properly judge the 3D, but it was second best on the night.

Star Trek had some amazing 3D, Man of Steel was good and impressed but will need to see more action shots to pass judgment, Iron Man 3 had some bad 3D in there which is strange considering how good the Avengers post-conversion was.

It's crazy how in all the set photos and behind the scenes snaps, there to my knowledge, isn't one pic of Tor-An. We have mo cap man sure, but Tor-An Lego figure is exactly the same as Zod and Foara's.
