Although I am not even close to a fan of them using Zod in Man Of Steel, it is what it is, why not market the villain? Zod has some pop culture and internet awareness going for him. Use it.
I wonder how many people think this is another Luthor movie. Superman's only villain is Luthor as far as most people in cinema know. And that Meloni guy appearing in the trailers does look awfully bald. Maybe Superman shows up on earth and fights the army for the whole movie?
who knows.

I'm still kinda fumed that the posters have been greenlit but have yet to be released. That's my only beef with the marketing thus far.

Perhaps a more accurate comparison would be Batman Begins, but I know no one want's to go there.
Now, i'm very tired and have been ill for the last few days, so forgive me if I missed any (there may be more), but these are some of the BB villain pics released long before where we are no in the game:

First pic of Henri Ducard - July 2004
First pics of fake Ras (Ken Watanabe) - August 03 2004
Another pic of fake Ras - October 2004

Late March would have made more sense than April, in my opinion.

This version of Zod looks to be a badass.WB is making a mistake by not fully showing it so far.

Yep. MOS' marketing is far more restrained than even TDKR. Its really odd. I can't believe some are still defending this as being "normal" marketing. If you like this marketing strategy, fine, but for a film of this size and scope such restrained marketing is not at all normal.

SUbject change
So is Amy Adams getting more screentime than Michael Shannon because she is billed right next to Cavill in the credits.

Billing order does not equate to screentime.

Indeed. Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman were billed before Christopher Reeve and I don't think they got more screen time than he did. And I'm pretty certain that Kevin Spacey had more ST than Routh in SR despite the fact that Routh was billed before him.

The Joker and Bane were the main focus of TDK and TDKR.

MoS is an Origin story where the villain plays a less major role.

In this story Zod might not be more important than Jor-El, the Kents or lois.

Anyway, we still have a whole two and a half months, which is too early to judge where the marketing is going.

yeah I was being sarcastic....I fully expect marketing to kick in this month. I figured it would start up either mid-March or early April. I was sooooo wrong on the mid-March bit, so I'm hoping WB doesn't make me look like an ass and start marketing mid-April

Here are all the official pics of Zod released as of now:

Not to mention the fact we have no official image of Martha, Jonathon, Lara, Perry, Colonel Hardy or Faora (or any of the other cast)... we only have official pics of Superman, Lois, Jor-el and Zod.

That was for the third Batman movie, though.

care to be a LITTLE more elaborate??? If it's Man of Steel I don't care to know. I don't wanna know everything there is to know about the movie. I wanna see the trailers, pics and that's it....and go in blind
