If Warner Bros. is hoping for 2013's Man of Steel to carry the torch left behind by Chris Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, they're off to the right start.

Early last week, the studio debuted the first full trailer online (second overall when counting the summer's shorter teaser trailer) and it immediately made waves throughout the Internet. In fact, within 24 hours the film was tracking as highly as The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - during the middle of its release week - on our daily Twitter tracking.

That might be what it takes for a Superman movie these days...

I think the 2nd Trailer is genuinely stirring, I was moved by it. SUPERMAN is a childhood favorite of mine but like a lot of kids, you grew up. But this one, judging from the 1st teaser and the 2nd one, promises something special. In Nolan We (Still) Trust..?

Doesn't mean anything. Any trailer based on material which has a fanboy-base will show noticeable twitter activity.

Prediction based on trackings like twitter activity will always mislead, as was the case with TH1 just recently.

One thing i still can't understand is, why are people considering the movie to be a Christopher Nolan movie. Yes, he wrote the script and produced it, but in the end Zack Snyder still has to make sure it gets translated well on screen. This is like saying "Back to the future" or "The Goonies" are Steven Spielberg movies.
If the movie succeeds or fails, the credit or blame should be Snyder's. I know some people who say "I like that Nolan is involved but i am sure that Snyder will screw it up" almost assuming that Snyder will not be giving this his all to ensure the movie works and works well.

Christopher Nolan didn't write the script.

Sounds like Goyer came up with the story. Nolan is just shepherding the project as a producer. Sure, he might throw in ideas but to say it's his story would be wrong.

Oh boy.. Here we go: If the movie looks good and does well, we credit Nolan for it but if it sucks and doesn't do well, we blame Zack Snyder for it, right???? This love affair today's generation has for Nolan is downright Gay.. I'm sorry but it is.. Really, Snyder shouldn't be sold short on this in favor of more Nolan stroking..
