It'll probably be attached to Oblivion.

Well, 3 weeks ago he said that week or the next at the latest. So I won't hold my breath. Though if he keeps on saying that every two weeks, it will eventually come true.

I'll be very disappointed if there aren't previews for the posters.

Heck, why not?

Tease us with the faded out pencil sketch of the poster and have us salivating for the colored version four days later. Make it an event!

Sad thing is, I'd probably fall for it and hype over such a thing. Pathetic, I know.

Kryptonian Warrior, people like you make me laugh.

I say my remarks because I as a fan want this film to succeed far more than any others this summer. That's how much I want this to do well. I want to see TONS more potentially great action packed Superman films whether they be solo films or with possible team ups.

I just feel WB is being so low key and stupid with their marketing which is the wrong approach for this character. Consistent sustained bursts of advertising from February and especially with a TV superbowl spot really would have put this thing on the map much more than right now. The TV superbowl spot for the Avengers did TONS for that film.

WB took the same approach to TDKR because it COULD. Batman was proven, successful and face it puts a lot more asses in theaters than Superman right now and yes regardless of whether you believe it, people still remember the disappointment and sourness of Superman Returns enough to potentially be put off by this film. The only way to change that is hit marketing and change perception from the get go, not a last minute stupid blitzkrieg approach. Get word out EARLY that this is a totally different Superman, an action packed Superman, a Superman who's not afraid to kick ass and take names but also a far more relatable, more "human" Superman, doubting his place in the world. One that we root for and make it LOUD and clear that this film will have visuals and epic action that'll make people's jaws drop.

I work three different jobs to make ends meet which is why I'm not on here all that often and I can only say from my obviously biased perspective whenever talking to people about movies and stuff at three VERY different settings, people have no ****ing clue about what this'll be like. If anything, several have thought it's going to be boring like "the last one." WB I think really need to disspell that sort of stuff early on.

There should have been a spot last night at the KCA.

I only see a lot of you guys on this forum only so no wonder ye are impatient if you're only following one movie.

i feel exactly the same way you do... however ppl such as KW, this is why i use the "ignore user" function. unfortunately there are a select few on here who think they're better than everyone else.

but yeah, i agree with everything that you have said, except with the "human" approach to Superman. I dont want to see another watered down version of superman who's filled with angst and uneasiness. Superman was created to give people hope, and to inspire them when they need it the most. Thats the Superman i grew up with, not what this jaded generation calls superheroes

But why do they need to show ALL of their cards now, when the movie is still 2 months, three weeks away? The marketing blitz is going to start VERY soon and when it does, it's going to be everywhere. I'm pretty sure they know what they are doing. If you or anyone else think they can do better, PLEASE apply. Apparently, many people seem to be marketing geniuses around here. I just don't understand why you are working 3 jobs when you could be doing so much better with WB. Good grief, get a grip will ya?! The trailer, TV Spots, posters, screencaps and all that jazz WILL start soon. Sometimes I wish it was like the old days when the internet didn't exist and we barely knew that a movie was coming out a month before it's release.
