Godzilla & Superman at Comic-Con!!!!

Yesterday we were treated to some good information concerning two of my most favorite fictional characters. Superman and Godzilla. A teaser trailer for both were presented although they are not on line yet. But a poster for each has been released. Here are the posters and a description of each of the trailers.

Man of Steel

“This looks VERY different from Superman films of the past

None of the trademark Snyder shots in the trailer. No slo-mo or shuttery frames

We see flashes of Smallville. The farm house. Clark running in a red cape as a child.

An older, bearded Clark walks a snowy road in an arctic town.

We hear Russell Crowe’s voice talking about children being inspired to greater things

It sounds like it’s cut with Kevin Costner’s voice. Both fathers are giving Clark/Kal advice on how to become who he wants to be

We see Clark being brought to the Kent barn and shown the spaceship that has been hidden there

Clark holds a small piece of metal with the S logo on the end

We’re jumping back and forth through time periods

Clark, as a teen, saved a bus of kids

The bus crashed in the water and we see him swimming, pulling the door off.

“People are afraid of what they don’t understand,” says Costner

We see Clark talking to Jor-El. They’re standing right in front of one another, but I think it’s a holographic projection (though it looks live)

We see Superman in the suit. First from a distance and then walking across a snowy plain

There are flashing of Superman flying and one of him catching someone falling off a building

A single flash of Amy Adams’ Lois Lane

One flash has Superman (in costume) — seemingly in handcuffs — being led down a hallway by a security force

We see Clark (without seeing his face) stepping into an elevator and begin to lift glasses to his face

There’s a flash of Clark, shirtless, with his whole body on fire

Another of him crashing into the bank vault we saw in the first still. It looks like he’s been thrown.”
There’s a major discussion in the narration about the world turning against Superman because they don’t trust him if he ever appears

We also hear a woman’s voice saying “My son saw what Clark did on that bus.”

Apparently someone witnessed young Clark as a child saving the bus with his powers

There’s a flash of Zod, but literally so fast you just see his face


The opening WB and Legendary logos are B&W with a font like original Japanese writingThe footage pans across a city that has been utterly destroyed.

We hear a voice over a radio talking (the voice of Robert Oppenheimer) about the end of the world.

It looks like another giant creature’s body is in the wreckage.

We hear the classic Godzilla scream from the smoke, we see something enormous. We’re following a camera up Godzilla’s back, showing his scales.

We see his face, but it’s almost a silhouette. It looks a LOT like the classic Godzilla design but with a slightly fatter face.

I cannot wait until these trailers are released!!!

Man of Steel hits theaters on June 14, 2013. No release date for the Godzilla film though. 😦 It hasn’t even been cast or filmed yet but I am glad to know the project is sill moving ahead! 


About liamfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
