Who says I said anyone said they were? I was developing the train of thought, not necessarily disagreeing with anyone.

Oh ok, I thought you were suggesting that I implied that concept.

I think it is in some ways analogous to the way that James Bond has remained a hard drinking, womanizing, imperialist dinosaur, but the character has somehow taken on some of the ambiance of the modern world.

We'll see how it turns out, eh?
This exactly. I think the frame of MOS is perfect for re-introducing Superman: seriously asking the question of how our world would react to an all-powerful alien landing in its midst, with the ability to subjugate us if he chose.

He will still be Superman, but the context will be different, as it necessarily must be. Personally, I'm looking forward to that contrast very much. I think the appeal of Superman as a figure of hope has the opportunity to be even more meaningful against the backdrop of our modern world.

In that regard, MOS is shaping up to be the movie I wanted Superman Returns to be, except better.

When I first heard Bryan Singer's concept about Superman being away for five years and then returning only to find the world has moved on, I thought it was a brilliant way to address what Superman means to the modern world, as well as those critics who accuse him of not being relevant anymore. But Singer totally dropped the ball with the execution and those issues were barely discussed in the end. In the final movie, Superman makes a dramatic re-appearance, saves a plane and everyone automatically loves him again. After that, the movie settles back into a rehashed Lex Luthor real estate scam. And don't even get me started on the soap opera-ish "love story" that dominated the film and ultimately failed on every level.

Man of Steel looks like it will tackle Superman's contemporary relevance (or lack thereof) head-on, in a way that will also serve as something of a Dark Knight-like commentary on current events. And frankly, the creative team behind this film, in terms of both cast and crew, is far superior in every respect to that of SR.

I see a 75-year-old pop culture icon being updated for the sake of 'relevancy' - and not in a good way. DC and WB are attempting to turn him into a hip, edgy, brooding character. Those characteristics describe Batman, but they should never describe Superman.

Superman is supposed to be a shining beacon of hope. Incidentally, the last guy to play Superman summed it up nicely:
How can you assume all this if you didnt see the movie yet?

For what I saw on trailers and interviews, everyone involved is telling a story where, in the end, Superman is going to be a symbol of hope to the world. And this is quintessential Superman.

not sure if this matters but I saw where EW has asked a few websites such as comingsoon to remove the photos...does that mean we can no longer post them?

I dont care how bad the pic is of Zod or how "off" it may look. It's a CGI suit, it's not going to look 100% accurate. I'm just finally happy to see some new pics. I'm sure it will look better on screen and in motion.

Is the Zod suit CGI just for the action scenes or for the whole film?

from the way they have spoke about it, I'm assuming it will be for the entire movie

Hmm, I hope that doesn't look too weird in the final cut...or too obvious that its CGI.

so far it looks pretty good to me....I think it will look fine. Snyder hired some great effects house to work on the film...
