    I added an edit to my original post.

    London is 5 hours ahead of the US East coast. Where are you in the UK?

    Everywhere in the UK is on the same time frame.

    Which 'coast' does SHH time usually go by then? I'm so confused, i'm the worst at stuff like this :funny:

    You can set it to any timezone you wish so I'm not sure what it is typically. I'm on eastern time and it will we are 3 hours ahead of the west.

    Also, 7 hours from now should be midnight for you... hmmm

    Shoot. rudeness doesn't bother me. I can give as good as I get..besides, its all friendly as for as I am concerned.
    Anywho, It's not WE the fans that i'm worried about being catered too, its joe schmo on the street. I know we will be there, but will he.
    I could stand to not see another pic or trailer, but I want more marketing so it will do well, so a sequel or a possible WF film can happen..if it doesn't do well, kiss all that goodbye.

    Why are some acting like Superman is still cool? That people in mass care about him? That most would look at him and Iron Man together and pick him? We are suppose to have this "new", "cool" Superman and everyone wants to hide him.

    This could be the best movie ever, but it won't matter without the proper build up. You release good photos, they around the net and cause good buzz. The people who are only capable of expressing themselves with "Epic" and "Cool" start to care.

    This film is being marketed like it is a secret. Snyder won't even confirm Zod. I hate the "its to precious to talk about" way some are handling this.

    This should be a movie folks months out start playing their vacation around. What about this film's marketing will have people doing that so far?

    A-ha. Seven hours for me is midnight, it's 2 hours for you. 7 hours - 5 hours (time difference) = 2 hours. So yeah, 5 am is midnight here.

    Math is great. :funny:

    There's no way you can tell me that there's a lack of images or news about this movie when I follow it so closely. And I don't even cover ALL of it, just the important stuff.

    All the more reason to wait for the Iron Man 3 fever to die the hell down before spending money on it

    Begins was infinitely better then any Comic book movie I had seen before its release. It didn't do well in theaters. Why? Because its identity was never clearly shown. There was not one reason for people to think it was a prequel to Burton's Batman.

    I never understood the run and hide approach. Shows weakness. Flaunt it if you got it.

    Toy pics are the only thing you see? Really? Not magazine covers and stills and a poster and a trailer and screencaps?

    Wasn't sure before but now I'm sure you lack the sound reasoning necessary to understand how the movie business works. Good day.

    It's NOT run and hide, it's properly and EFFECTIVELY allocated a LIMITED budget for the most successful marketing effect.

    Why compete with Iron Man 3 marketing when you don't have to compete with the movie in theaters? Why? It makes NO sense.

    That being said, it's only March 5th and obviously WB will continue releasing stuff as they have in the past few months.

    I don't see what you see maybe..And, if you count screencaps as part of marketing..I could easily take every frame and put all of them in one post saying we have tooons of pics from Mos..that's one trailer, one single trailer that doesn't even show that much..

    Happens multiple times every year with every fan obsessed movie. People have horrible memory retention.

    It is not about competing, it is about not caring about others films. Making your own mark.

    You really think it cost a lot of money to release photos? Give them to the fan and news site. They will do it for you. They live for that kind of stuff.
