    Dear God, this is booooring... We really need some new MAJOR MOS stuff to talk about!
    :-( The new trailer can't be released soon enough! So bring it on.

    I suppose. I just kinda wish they went with some material base on Shannon for them to build off of. I think you can act better when you look the part too, so it probably could've helped Shannon who said that he hated it and felt Snyder cheated him a bit by saying they'd give him a real suit to wear.

    Of course if his armor actually does look like this:

    I completely understand. Although I don't know if it will be considering Shannon is walking around at his regular height. Unless that mocap guy with the rod up his back as a visual reference for Cavill as to his height IS Zod in massive armor. So many questions!

    I have no idea where they're going with the Zod-armor, and why it necessarily had to be entirely CGI, because that's what it sounds like it may be. The armor probably wont be as big as the above, but rather something akin to IM, so still somewhat hard to move in, especially if you gotta move fast and look good. And again, the suit might be slightly "intelligent" and possibly conform to the wearer and his movements. They'll probably put a spin on the armor since it's CGI.

    Zod will also wear a suit like Cavill but it will be black.

    If the theory about Zod having a robot army is true, along with his CGI suit being something Iron Monger like; then damn, they sure did take liberties from both brainiac and Lex Luther in terms of what those two villains are known to use against Superman in the comics.lol

    What the hell are you talking about? Gollum in The Hobbit is literally the most realistic looking cgi I've ever seen.

    The thing about Rise of the Planet of the apes is that we know exactly what apes are supposed to look like so cg doesn't work as well sometimes.

    Yeah, there's apparently 3 different stages of his suit or something. I like that he has a different symbol in that pic. It looks like it could be similar to the Red Son symbol or something. At least they weren't stupid enough to go with the 'Z' symbol thus making the Kryptonian alphabet the same as ours ha.

    Clark spinning a pencil with telekinesis in class is pretty stupid as well, as Clark did his best to hide his powers, and doesn't have telekinesis.

    I don't think the robot army thing is true.

    And Zod's worn this in the comics. [​IMG]

    Freeze-framing the CC trailer at the right moments to try and get a good idea of how Zod will look. It appears the face shot of him he is wearing similar attire to Russell Crowe's set photos. The same round shoulder pads. A much higher raised neckline/collar though. Very similar though. Same neo-medieval aesthetic.

    One thing I noticed having never pausing that shot of Supes and Zod flying at each other is how beautiful that shot actually looks. I never noticed the detail behind them with the sky and buildings.

    Tha's the first thing I noticed. Snyder has a real beuty when it comes to realizing atmosphere and I'm very much looking forward to this.

    I'm really hoping they do a Rain shot with Superman either Fighting or just flying through rain, because, Snyder is magnificent. Specially in the Owls of Gahoole that rain sequence is amazing and am hoping for something like that.

    Gotta leave something for the sequel. :cwink:

    When did the MOS teaser leak? The Thursday or the Friday? And the TDKR trailer 12 months ago?

    I need this trailer in my life right now lol.
    And yes, that shot of Zod and Superman flying towards each other along that building looks amazing. This film is visually, going to be breathtaking.

    I doubt it. it likely wont be attached to any hobbit screenings til friday and they are likely to release it officially thursday, friday, or even as early as wednesday to avoid bootlegs.

    I live in Leeds in the UK and we don't ted to get a lot of those :(

    Btw I just saw the trailer for After .earth and from WB what I've seen I can't see it been a major hit, it looks abit like a boring sci-fi.

    I don't wanna see this either. No telekinesis. I don't think a bio-auroa created from prolonged yellow Sun exposure would be that hard to explain either.
    There may be room for a quick explanation in MOS 2 or maybe JLA. Maybe Professor Hamilton can be the one to give those lines...:yay:

    IDK. they are releasing the Pacific Rim trailer beforehand, so they might do the same for MOS.

    But then again.... that could be why they don't release it until afterwards.

    So in everyone's un-biased opinions....do you all think that MOS is one of THE most anticipated movies of the year?
