I had wet-chills when I entered SR and the movie theater. I heard the Williams theme again and about let everything go in my pants. But seeing Routh use the same exact lines from Superman: The Movie, the embarrassing spit-curl and that God-awful costume, spying on Lois & the Super-kid, I tried to hide my disappointment for all these years.
Then the Bat-franchise hit. I always liked Batman, but I always found myself leaving the theater jealous of hardcore Bat-fans because I longed for Superman to give me a thrill. Even in the comics, year by year, I had to read through sleeper-stories but I never missed a comic in years. I have a half-sleeve tattoo of Superman and turning it into a full-sleeve.
This trailer did it for me. That 2:30 was something I've been waiting for since I was a little kid in my diapers watching Reeve rip open his shirt. Now as an adult, I wanted to see more from Superman and the franchise. I'm proud to be a Super-fan, but this is one of the most fun I've had by being one in a long, long time!

It is nice to be optimistic for a superman film. I loved Superman 1 and thought Superman 2 was pretty good (with the later released donner cut being great), but after 3 and 4 they really should have just put that series to bed and rebooted instead of continuing with Returns.
Actually, does anybody know how far into production Returns was when Batman Begins was greenlit? Back to back reboots of their 2 most popular characters seems like kind of a no brainer, even if they weren't thinking about the whole shared universe thing.

People who chime in on vs. threads with "I don't like Superman at all, but he'd win.", STOP HELPING! Superman doesn't need your damning him with faint praise, thank you.
I don't always come across as a nice guy or one who listens to those I disagree with but it is actually the opposite. I may not always agree and sometimes I get to pushy but that is because of the passion I have for the character. I have since as long as I could remember.

I like the idea of Clark not becoming a journalist at the DP with Lois until the end because not only do I suspect Lois will know who Clark is from the beginning, but I also like the idea of showing the audience what drives his decision to be a reporter and wear glasses. Plus, like Smallville Lois below I just like glasses on a guy on a personal level so I'm excited to see Henry in them even if it's only briefly.

The big question is whether or not Cavill can pull off metropolis Kent.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't understand many of the criticisms.
i think too many are attached to the original donner films and I don't want any real change. Cavill himself looks fantastic, in my opinion.
