    That would be one sick move. Imagine that being the surprise the 4th or seeing him revealed in the trailer. That stunt would be for the movie history-books.

    I doubt it though. Heavily. :oldrazz:

    Yeah, Cavill was great in The Tudors and Immortals. I can understand why some people might still be unsure of how he'll be as Superman, but those roles should at least confirm that he's a solid actor. Especially considering how I see people on this board defend average-to-minimal talents like Sam Worthington and Taylor Kitsch.

    Cool. Yeah that was good. Faith restored somewhat.

    It's possible if they go down the Brainiac-Krptonian AI route.

    I wonder if the Black Zero ship chases baby Kal-els vessel? Or perhaps during the whole Krypton civil war, Earth is chosen as refuge and all Kryptonians become aware of it. Perhaps Zod seeks it for the yellow sun, wanting power.

    Maybe Zod's not in it at all and Michael Shannon is Brainiac! :wow:

    I think his acting is just fine. I do find myself over analyzing and that's not fair. Looking for Superman in every thing he does. However, I do see a lot of it in him. Unlike other actors that were up for the roll.

    If Zod does indeed have a robot army, then I can see the Brainiac AI being involved somehow.......

    It's very possible that they're playing up that angle, that earth is being eyed by Jor-El as a haven or something due to its conditions.

    Yeah we know, or think we know, that he sends a scout ship there ahead. That has Kal-Els suit and his 'ghost' or some recording summarizing Kryptons doom. And he sends the key to it with baby Kal.

    It's clearly all been premeditated by him at some point as opposed to sudden crisis and seismic core collapse under Kryptons surface and only desperately managing to save Clark just in time (not that that still can't happen to some extent, it's just early planning would have been in place by him as well).

    Maybe Zod will release brainiac at the end of the movie after superman defeats him as a means of making sure his plan of earths destruction still carries through.

    I agree.

    Though I will say that the way they portrayed the public helping Spidey in ASM was better, though still almost as cheesy.

    i can't even put into words how awesome it would be if Brainiac is even mentioned in this movie in any form.

    I doubt it's Earth's destruction that he's after. (It's such a common evil plan) I think Zod will perhaps be motivated by recreating Krypton from Earth. Perhaps enslaving Earth. I dunno.

    Shannon kept mentioning that Zod is just a guy trying to do his job, makes me think his character was sent to Earth by someone.

    I just hope it's not too planned, as I like Superman's placement on earth to be more or less a fluke. As long as there's no BS prophecy or crap like that.

    Yeah that worries me as well. Like hopefully he didn't send Kal as some final failsafe to finish the war with Zod or something to fulfill some prophecy. And give the people an ideal to strive toward so they'll... (oh no). I hope that speech is what leads into the credits as Clark comes to becoming Earth's hero on his own and that is Jor-Els ghost realizing this and speaking his potential. Please please.

    No, he's there to seed the world and create... Krypton II. Much like Zod wants to, but with less killing and so on. :dry:

    Interesting, hadn't heard that he'd said that. Yeah, that does indicate some greater power at play like Brainiac or even Darkseid.

    Yeah I hope they don't take the prophecy route either. I'm very curious as to who Jor el is talking to in his narration from the comic con footage as well, when he says "what if a child aspired to be more than what society intended of him" or something along those lines.

    Who knows. He may just be so brainwashed by his training that he lives his job which is to lead, control and fight disorder.

    But what a sweet introduction to Brainaic if true. Not unlike the way TDK-trilogy handled its villains. Someone bigger always pulling strings in the shadows.

    Ugh. I've never thought about that. The more I consider that, the more it pains me to realize that we are going to get Jor-El expecting Kal to become Superman to some extent. Agh.

    There's a 90s comic I remember, I think it was a Superboy comic where he got the name Kon-El where he experiences the final hour of Krypton and Jor-El brings up a screen showing Kal-El as a grown man with his shirt off working on a farm. Lara is repulsed by it. But Jor-El says at least he will live and it's for the best.

    Maybe even that's too much but damnit he shouldn't be the one who decides for Clark to become Superman.
