    Production values look good. Its not enough to get me to watch but the visuals are better than other CW fare.

    Who is he fighting? Metallo? That guy in a suit + Kryptonite makes me think Metallo at least. Would be stoked to see Metallo as the major villain alongside Lex, I’ve always wanted a movie with that set up.

    It’s amusing to me to see the Snyder fandom go from dumping on Hoechlin to praising it just because the grading is darker now and the tone is serious. But hey if they stop screaming I’ll take it, maybe this will be the most positively received Superman product since Smallville. Least Hoechlin will be in the suit and fighting bad guys. Chortled at the “I wish I could get drunk” that’s great.

    We now have our third on-screen Lois and Clark wedding.

    Could be rebooted Metallo. I guess they could not want to spoil it which is why he doesn't have the typical Kryptonite chest yet.

    Wanna bet it's a misleading trailer and the show it's like the others on CW?

    Yeah now that i think about it, that was definitely the vibe I was getting....Maybe that's why I didn't like it.

    We know this show gets dark at some points based on the leaked script, but it’s not going to get Snyder-tier “Metropolis gets completely destroyed” edgy I’d bet. Wouldn’t surprise me if they do try to recreate some of the Snyder fights except Hoechlin actually protects people and prevents property damage as opposed to Cavill.

    The real question is will the show consistently look good beyond the pilot, or will they front load it to get people watching only to downsize the budget after the first episode or season.

    As others have said, reminds me of MoS without Snyder's "larger-than-life" aspirations, though the other thing that popped up in my mind was Superman: Secret Identity.

    I like it.

    This looks like it could actually be good. The potential's there, and it has a little of that MoS trailer feel (which I remember being excited for when it first dropped).

    That first look was awful. They should have lead with this. Much better. Lois and Clark looked a lot better here.

    All I could think was "he's fighting the Doom Slayer" but Metallo makes sense. Even looks a little like some designs of him. I hope it is now!

    The trailer itself is better than expected, the leads look great.

    Time will tell.
    I really hope they got addressed and don't make it into the final product as well. As you said, time will tell.

    Beyond 'wow, it so purdy' and 'gosh I continue to hope the raised issues are at least mostly matters of what it lacks rather than active problems, and/or the bad press got them to make panicked corrections, I want to have a consistently good live-action Superman thing for the first time since the 1950s'?

    My main response is "lol, how'd Superman manage to keep his secret identity from his kids" BECAUSE SUPERMAN IS GOOD AT HIS JOB

    It would be the height of irony if I get baited into being excited for this show via its trailer, and then the show itself was bad, given the Man of Steel similarities. Those MoS trailers are still the best Superman stuff Snyder has ever done. Still I think Hoechlin is a great Supes, and I can’t wait to see what he can do. It’s funny to think of all the people complaining about how “weak” Hoechlin was, because given the budget I think he’s going to completely outclass Kara feat wise.

    Saw a theory that Doom Slayer is spoilers:
    Alternate Lex in a power suit
    end of spoilers and I could definitely see that. Would prefer it to be Metallo, but seeing those two go at it physically would still be something we’ve never seen.

    I assumed it was less budget and more who they have handling the FX on the show, so I'm not sure if there should be such a stark change for the rest of the season, especially with a smaller episode count.

    spoilers:
    Unless you count Supergirl fighting two Luthors in a power suit on her show.
    end of spoilers

    I've read the leaked script, and the trailer aparently confirms it was the real script.

    This show should just steal the whole production of Krypton, Brainiac, Doomsday, everything.
