I had to post this link because people need to know that next summer...

"The world's greatest hero returns."

I'm still not one hundred percent behind this film, the way I was with Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins (far and away the best Batman ever seen on film). But this trailer gives me a little more hope than I had originally had. It's a good teaser and I look forward to seeing it on the big screen. However, I'm a little concerned with the way that Bryan Singer is tying his film to the previous Christopher Reeve Superman films. One of the best things about Nolan's Batman, was that it jetisoned all the previous material, and was able to stand on its own. Singer is purposefully, and respectfully, inviting comparson to Donner's 1978 film, but I'm not convinced that this will work.

But that music still sends chills of excitement up my spine.

NOTE: It has come to my attention that this NOT the official teaser trailer that will play with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. This is a fan trailer. But I think it's a damn good fan trailer.

Yeah I had the spine Tingles as well. I like the way The Daily Planet looked. very retro gothic. I didn't like the little glimps we got of him all done up in the superman costume. looked alittle unsuper. Oh well I guess we'll see next summer.
