And we have two Superman films that have dealt with the allegory rather blatantly so far. (Superman: The Movie and Superman Returns) Some of us hoped they would be subtle this time around and play up the human aspects of the character.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this film is definitely focusing on Clarks humanity. And as far as I'm concerned Clark falling or drifting and his arms naturally falling that way is a pretty subtle nod to all that without it being shoved in our face. I'm OK with it.

In previous shots, I think she has a camera strapped over her.

what if a trailer dreamed of not reciting what if a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society intended?

Yeah, I don't even think it is a Christ pose really. Like the water pose from trailer 2, it is simply how people look when they are floating/treading water. In the new TV Spot, Clark is not falling back, he is simply drifting a little bit because he seems to have pushed something forward in microgravity. Newton's third law and all that. Just a little annoyed that some people automatically went to defend alleged Christ imagery as good even though people around here almost unanimously complained about it being in Returns.

Not really. Divinity is essentially the exact opposite of mortality/fallibility.

Just a thought: maybe they should feature Cavill's performance some more. He's the one unknown face on this film, and yet the most important. I imagine average people thinking "Huh? Is that who they want me to go to the movie for?" when they see him (and in scenes that for the most part don't feature speaking at all).

Best quality yet.
Btw, Notice on the monitors the Zod static is EXACTLY like the viral marketing vital.

I'm guessing something mighty important is inside that military cargo jet since its being guarded/escorted by all those fighter jets...
superman after he surrenders maybe?
or a crashed spaceship??
It could even be zod playing nice at first..

Thinking it over I think Jenny is the one who gets Jimmy the internship. I'd imagine getting an internship like the Planet would be highly competitive even for the best of photographers. So, I think in keeping things grounded, she might serve more as his ticket.

Or they realized the character is goofy and unnecessary, much like the underwear.

I really didn't they would actually include Zod's message in the movie. I assumed it was strictly marketing material.

I keep watching the "Jesus Pose" part and all I see on the right hand side is someone looking at Supes. am I the only one seeing this weird optical illusion? Looks like Crowe.
