I knew there was going to be a trailer for The Man of Steel before the Dark Knight Rises, so I made sure to be there early enough to catch that trailer. My wife and I got our popcorn and settled in…
The first trailer came on. It wasn’t the Man of Steel. I don’t remember what it was, but it was stupid. Second trailer… not Man of Steel.
Finally a trailer started and I immediately knew it was The Man of Steel. A dude I assume was Clark’s Earth dad (Jonathan Kent) was narrating. He said some cool stuff, and there were some neat shots of Clark, then I saw a glimpse of Superman flying into the sky.
And that was the end of the trailer.
Seriously. What kind of trailer is that? I know the movie’s not due for another year, but I also know they’ve filmed more than that. I was looking forward to a trailer that would get me all nerdy for Superman… and instead I got a glimpse of a shadowy dude flying toward the sky.
Three words come to mind when I think of that Superman trailer:
Load of crap.
Yeah, I said it. The Superman trailer was a load of crap.
Now, I’m pretty sure the movie is gonna rock, but that trailer was like being offered a single sesame seed and getting told the sesame seed was a “sample” of General Tso’s Chicken.
IT WAS NOT A SAMPLE!
Great. Now I’m craving some General Tso’s Chicken.
Thanks, crappy Superman trailer. Not only did you leave me grossly disappointed, but now I’m craving General Tso’s at 1:30 in the morning. You’re the worst trailer ever.
I hate you.
I feel so betrayed.
p.s. The Dark Knight Rises was awesome. Nerd-law requires that you see it.
