    Yeah. I think it would be interesting. The few times they actually showed themselves, they were mistaken for Gods, so they chose to remain in hiding.
    Maybe they even figured out a way to leave Earth. who knows.

    You can imagine how people in the past would react to a flying, superstrong, heatvision shooting being..
    Heck, look at how we would react today..Some folks would instantly hit the ground in worship. New religions would be formed in minutes.

    Looks like all the world building is going to lead this film into that good old word of mouth train type of release.
    If the Action is up to par with the directors last films, and if the romance is serviceable, I think we'll have a hit.

    yay.

    Yes, I was thinking about that. But I'd almost rather his role not be benevolent, though the villain have a god-like role to humanity is an interesting psychological twist.

    If the Kryptonians on the scout ship were alive when it came to Earth, you have to wonder why they appear to be dead now - they would have had Kal-El's powers under our sun. I think they may have died before arriving here and the ship could have crash-landed.

    Champions League is completely 50/50 for a new spot in the UK. There have been very very very few spots so far here other than the Zod static one. A big final would be an ideal place to put it but they'd only put it on at half time and everyone I know never sticks around for that they either switch channels or do something else. Also it is a final between two German teams so I don't think the viewing figures will be that high anyway. I know quite a few big football fans who have zero interest in tonights game.

    It is possibly the biggest opportunity WB will get though before release. Hopefully it wont be like TDKR where they had so little new footage they may as well have shown an old spot (during England's Euro game). I will be watching though and I'll be straight on here to update ya'll if there is one it will be around 8:35pm UK time.

    Anyways I love all the mythology they have put into this film however it also leads to my biggest worry. It's all very nice having but will they be able to put much of it onscreen? They have so much material to get through I feel it could come off as rushed. Maybe Snyder has a Director's Cut in store...

    This was a worry with TDKR as well. On those boards we literally bulletpointed all the stuff we knew was gonna happen and at the end we realised it was very unlikely that the plot would have anytime to breathe and in the end I think that worry became very legitimate.

    This film has so many good possibilties for sequels its not even funny. You could easily set up Brainiac, Doomsday, or even Darkseid in this for future films.

    In the prequel comic, one of the last panels has one of the Kryptonians walking out of the scout ship into the snow. It's just the silouhette so you're not supposed to know exactly which one I think -- Dev-Em or Kara.

    Well, history is filled with 'terrible gods'.. so, i guess he'll fit right in.. unless, the person who walked out of the ship was Kara.. ;)
