    The film seems to have a very bright filter and/or lightning. Which is ironic since people keep saying the films looks too dark. :D But yeah. bright and more focused lightning makes for darker/heavy shadowing, so I get what people mean by it.

    It's also quite a desaturated and naturalistic look in terms of color timing, which explains the lack of stronger colors. Personally I love the visuals so far.

    Also to consider is that this photo probably isn't a screenshot from the movie, but more likely a set photo from a totally different angle and from a different camera than the actual filming.

    The color corrections look terrible, I like the color palette of the original photo much better.

    One thing to keep in mind is that when watching in a dark theater, our eyes adjust a bit to the color filter of the movie the same way our eyes adjust to tinted lenses. Just throwing that out there.

    It is strange how these official images are more desaturated than the trailer itself.

    How the hell is a random headshot of Superman a "miss"? It's not some hyped up reveal of the suit or something. Just a picture of Superman from the shoulders up. And the shot looks amazing for being just that.

    Cleary they're trying to be very slow moving in their reveal of this movie. They appear to be trying to gradually move people into becoming accustomed to the new suit and look of superman, which makes sense for the general audience, but not for hyper-fan boys.

    It's a miss if you are a super nitpicker. It's not a miss or a win it's just a simple photo of the damn actor.

    I do hope we get some shots of all of the cast soon though and yeah I want to see Supes punch a villian. And save people ofcourse but since he's never punched a villian on screen I want to see that more.

    I actually think this offical image and the trailer have the same desaturated look-expect it to be the same in the movie

    The cape in the trailer is still deep red. The sky is still blue. Skin still pink.

    The released image is desaturated to near gray.

    cool!! we get a new pic!!

    I have no real problems with it.

    remember, in regards to the color, a suit's color can look entirely different depending on the lighting.

    Yes. The image in the trailer is slightly more saturated, but it's clearly going for the same look. All of this is moot however, because we can't truly judge the intended colour palette of a film until we've seen it ourselves in a (good) theatre. Because even trailers are susceptible to changes in color temperature that might not be the intended look of the filmmakers.

    I think the 2nd poster was a miss as well, but certainly this is one.

    I don't think it was, it did it's job. It created awareness for the film. To the average person, seeing Superman in handcuffs caused them to research the film. I can't tell you how many of my friends messaged me about the poster the day it was released ( most know I'm a Superman fanatic)

    I don't think the simple shoulder up view of Henry as Superman is a good picture, so in my opinion, it's a miss yes.

    I had some of the people I work with make comments like, "Why would Superman be going to jail, seems stupid."

    I'm sure it could go either way. What your friends or my friends are saying doesn't necessarily encompass the view of the general public, but if people are talking about the movie either way, I'm sure that's a good thing.
