In the first 30 seconds of the trailer I though "so...is superman a fisherman on the coast of Scotland?"

Still love original Superman with Christopher Reeve. He was the perfect actor for this role and surely miss him. Have propably seen first movie like 50 times, but its sequels actually sucked.

@BnK: I can see where you are coming from, but when I think of Superman, I think of orchestral majesty (I have the theme from the first in my head right now--no, not the Roth one, the Reeves one). There barely was a taste of that in this trailer. I know I'm knocking the trailer, but it's the first impression. There's no second shot at that. I'm sincerely hoping that there is no residual disappointment when the following trailers are released.
All they needed was the theme.

Just keep the kid with the cape running about in a field humming the theme, then superman zooms overhead at a zillion miles an hour.

Pan up to follow supes.

Proper orchestral theme kicks in.

Regarding the theme, I don't think they're going to use the one from the original films. It is a reboot after all and they probably want to separate it from the others as much as they can.

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

But they have to have something similar to it.

Almost all the comic book properties have a theme that is indelibly linked to it. Batman has one, the X-Men have one (the animated series admittedly), the Hulk (that bit of piano), the Green Hornet has one, and Doctor Who has one (this is probably the best example since throughout the decades the theme has been a variant on the original).

Okay, I have a better example--James Bond. When they did the reboot with Daniel Craig, they chucked the timeline and decided to make Bond less debonair playboy-spy and more BAMF.

Here's the thing though, they couldn't get away from the James Bond theme. And if you listen throughout the film, it is only there in parts, never the whole thing. The first time you actually hear the whole theme is at the end where Bond, having learned that hard lesson from Vesper, is now wiser about who to trust and who not to (and is deserving of the theme, right after he introduces himself in typical Bond fashion to Mr. White).

I don't know if this will sway you, but to me I would be disappointed if there were not a nod to the prior films somewhere in the soundtrack. This reboot does not exist in a vacuum. There were other Superman films, good and bad, and to not acknowledge them (especially the good ones) is in my eyes a form of disrespect.

Really? You find Bale's Batman to not be a ridiculous suit? Armor that makes whats supposed to be an agile fighter slow as hell, 3d detective mode vision that can't seem to turn off, a whole movie where HE CAN'T TURN HIS HEAD. Totally not ridiculous.

Anyway I like the International trailer more then the US trailer. Russel Crowe as Jor-El (he's the VO) giving a line from All Star Superman is simply amazing.

I'm interested in the movie as a comic fan because it looks to show the Man side of Superman. How he wants nothing more then to be a "normal" man but the legacy he represents and the power he holds force him to be Superman.

Superman's best stories have always focused on the human aspects of his character. I'm hoping this repeats that trend.
