Justin Bieber has every comic book geek from here to Metropolis freaking out over the above image that he posted to Instagram on Saturday, because everyone thinks it means that the boy with the mustache made of pubes is actually going to be in Batman vs. Superman. Realistically, Warner Bros. just sent him a copy of the script because he’s a huge celebrity and keeping the plot a secret is for pussies. But on the awful chance that Zack Snyder values his and Superman fans so little, we can at least hope for a reprisal of Bieber’s greatest acting moment to date.
Russell Crowe holding a doll, Michael Shannon in a ‘Gears of War’ commercial, Zack Snyders super fast then super slow bullshit; it’s all here thanks to the release of the the first full trailer for ‘Man of Steel’, which follows the tone set by the Dark Knight trilogy and Megamind and shows us a Superman unsure of his place in the world. Granted it’s a very beautiful world, one with a constant gentle breeze to make your hair and cape look cool.
We still haven’t had a real trailer yet for ‘Man of Steel’ or ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’, but today we do have the hundredth best thing; movie posters.
One shows the most malleable Superman yet, in tights that somehow still show his abs, allowing himself to be led away in handcuffs by 4 cops who would shit their pants at a Criss Angel show due to their unwavering faith in handcuffs.
Then there’s the sequel to ‘Star Trek’, with villain Benedict Cumberbatch and another example of “a hole in the building shaped like a thing from the movie”, taking a cue from the gritty Dark Knight Rises posters and less gritty Kool Aid commercials.
The first trailer for ‘Man of Steel’ is playing in front of ‘the Dark Knight Rises’, and though it’s not online officially yet, bootleg copies are all over the place. And they all suck. This trailer is nothing like the footage shown at Comic-Con last week. It’s a very handsome version of ‘Deadliest Catch’, then 5 seconds of Superman flying. Ohh, thank you sooo much Warner Brothers for this amazing footage. What a treat this was. Superman fishing is what they had in mind when they invented 3D.
I’m not positive if that headline is true by the way. It’s not like I’m under oath or anything. But that’s Michael Shannon on set in Toronto today as the villain in the new Superman movie. I haven’t seen any other ones, and they don’t have any on ‘Man of Steels’ facebook fan page, and they’ve done a real good job with stuff like this. Like those pictures of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent. So if that headline is a lie, blame them. I would be the real victim, if anyone should be mad here it would be me!

The Daily Mail has the first pictures of Russell Crowe playing Supermans dad, or at least smoking cigarettes in Supermans dad costume. As you can see they have him with the S on his chest, which apparently is not an S but the family crest which is why Superman wears it later, though to be honest that explanation seems like bullshit. I don’t mean to brag but I’m pretty sure I know what an S looks like.
