He's a boy scout, you know it isn't far fetch for him to let the government arrest him w/o resistance.

Yeah, it's not that out of character for Superman to surrender like that without a real fight. I just don't like the idea of the reboot making one of the major plot points being the US government's distrust and fear of him. Doesn't sit right with me. Superman's his best as a symbol for hope and trust. Framing him as such is the only way that you can make the occasional "darker" stories about the character compelling.

Latino Review is reporting that the villain for Justice League is Darkseid, no solid source (or at least they wouldn't divulge it) though.

Makes a lot of sense as he's one DC's biggest hitters and easily reason enough for the formation of a team. Not sure how it will play having him appear so close to Marvel using Thanos. Might cause some of the public to call "rip-off" at DC even if Darkseid came first in comic continuity.

We're going to have to wait and see if that is the main plot, that might just be a small part of it or it could be like Hancock where he is imprisoned until he s finally needed (when Zod arrives?).

They have been pretty tight lipped on this film and I really have no idea where it is going and so far I do not have any strong feelings towards liking or hating this film yet. The trailer that comes with the Hobbit should be interesting if they show more clips than the very short preview they officially released. It’ll likely be very similar to the Comic-Con trailer, which would be nice to see in high quality.

My guess is that if imagery of him being handcuffed and taken away by our military is on one of the first major posters for the movie, it's a fairly big plot point. In the least it's an indication of the film's direction and feel.

Good point but I am still not convinced. It can just be a way to hype the film up? I mean the poster will surely get people talking, "why is he being arrested', "can't he just escape from those handcuffs", etc...

that looks like something out of The Incredibles.

BTW - That may be the SHITTIEST promo poster I've ever seen for a superhero movie. The Army? SERIOUSLY???

People complained he never threw a punch in Superman Returns, so now we get tank punching.

That's what Snyder will use as a CGI when Superman fights. biggrin.gif

Hell hath no fury like Rambo's scorn for the Hollywoodization of superheroes.
