Just came upon this trailer. I think the idea of a horror Superman is pretty cool. And so far I like what I see.

If it were from Warner Bros. it could straight up be an Earth 3 Ultraman origin.

That looks really good and happy they didn’t spoil too much. Just showed enough to make me wanna watch it.

Might have to watch more Gunn movies.
Just saw Belko Experiment recently which I’d highly recommend.

If this movie turns out good, venom having made so much money and into the spider-verse getting so many positive reviews, it could mean that sony may finally hit a winning streak regarding their movie division.

Obvious parody? They aren't being very subtle with the similarities. I chuckled at his name being "Brandon", i.e., "Brandon Routh". Looks like it could be a fun watch, tho.

I like the idea, but it's a little too on-the-nose and the shots like the spacecraft crashing look a CGI SHITFEST corny.
Maybe they'll pull it off, but I would have preferred less gloss.

That looked good. Great premise, I hope the writing team is up to snuff.

I don't care where (just far)
I’m curious to see what the catch is gonna be. Like will there be an equivilant to kryptonite (or will he have some other vulnerability), will there be others like him, stuff like that

Yeah it will be interesting to see what can go up against him. A weakness, other super being or military?

Good stuff on the second trailer. Maybe a little too much show there, but still looks pretty awesome.
I am already sold on the movie. Your post serves me as a warning so I am gonna skip it and just watch the movie now lol(when it comes out of course)

My concern is this.. Is the majority of the movie going to be a collection of silent scenes followed by swift executions? I mean the premise is interesting even if it's not exactly original but I feel like I'm being bashed over the head with it over and over.

Superman is invincible. This one's a psychopath. Okay. It just doesn't tickle my curiosity very much. What else is there to look forward to? Is Brainiac gonna come down to earth and save it? Maybe doomsday? He kills one person and you're left thinking oh of course there's gonna be more silence and his mother's gonna whine before he does it again. I just wished the trailer gave just one counter balance of some kind.

The counter balance will be there. We just don’t know what it is yet, and I kinda dig that

I don’t want to see more, almost feels like I’ve seen too much

In a real world scenario I wonder which defense force would get called on to handle the problem and how it would go.

If this movie is good and makes a ton of money imagine a Brightburn 2, where an evil supermal like character fights with an evil batman like character for world domination, while a lex luther type dude tries to save the world. xD

That eye. How can you not scream like a maniac when you’re pulling this shit out of your eye. I don’t even know if I would be capable of doing that.

Can’t wait though. Love the whole concept of it. I’m excited what they’re going to make out of it.

I’m really truly hoping it succeeds and expands into its own “super-horror verse”
