I guess it's cool.

At least they have a guy who can fill out the suit (even if he, facially, doesn't really look like Superman) so that makes it automatically 10 times better than any other Superman fan film. However, It will still have beyond horrible ´´acting`` and 20 year old video game like VFX. Fan films about Superman are pointless, I wish these people would dedicate their time to something better. Do an animated short or whatever.

Well, let me just say that when the trailer started my first thought was "okay, this is terrible." But then, as the music was building up and the scenes started to unfold, I thought "you know, it's not easy always being right because this IS terrible." Then I figured I should at least five or a chance. So I did. Still terrible. This makes Superman: Requiem look like A masterpiece. Bad... Soooooo bad.

Stop doing this, guys...

@simoN - trading places and 48 hrs. are some of my murphy favorites

the experience of having seen pluto nash in the theater is still burned in my mind. not for good reasons

Looks terrible but will probably be better than Snyder's MOS.
RobLiefeldFan - 10/24/2012, 6:23 AM
it looks good i know it's a low budget fan film but it would have been better without luthor if we could just get another fan film without luthor i think it may be better but i have to watch it first though to judge

The camera they're using is so shitty.

Oh and the rest pretty much sucks. Doesn't have any appeal.

@DarthBob - MoS will rock.
Fogs - 10/24/2012, 7:00 AM
BTW, I dig the older superman in this one here

I wanna give these guys a lesson in Cinematography 101.

At least switch your exposure setting to manual, for crying out loud.
Pahenya - 10/24/2012, 9:24 AM
nice effort...but it's really bad
JULEZ13 - 10/24/2012, 9:47 AM
Ehhh... At least it isn't as bad as Requiem. This Superman can actually fill the suit! lol Oh and has his powers. Still looks shitty tho.

No point in making superhero shorts of heroes who already have movies out. They're better off doing a WW, Flash, Luke Cage, etc... maybe studios will see it, like them and actually give them a job.

It's fan made. So the acting will not be that great. But I thought is was alright.
Stumblin - 10/24/2012, 10:08 AM
No [frick]s given.
prronred - 10/24/2012, 10:11 AM
IMO, It looks to have some potential.
jingorot - 10/24/2012, 10:38 AM
this was pretty bad... i'm sorry to the dedicated fans of supes who spent time and money to make this. but yeah, it sucks.

¡¡¡Good Fan-Film!!!. ...¡¡¡Good Fan-Trailer!!!

You guys are a bunch of jackasses.
Fogs - 10/24/2012, 1:24 PM
@MarvelWeiner - batman dead end is very good. Batman vs Wolverine, also.
acidbath - 10/24/2012, 3:57 PM
uhmm fogs that one split second with green lantern totally beat the movie by miles
Orehrepus - 10/24/2012, 7:09 PM
Looks cheap and the rearranged soundtrack also sounds cheap. But hey, it's fan made, so I give all appreciation to the guys who made it.

But that Grayson movie Fogs put up seems decent. Is there a movie to it or just a fan made trailer?
Orehrepus - 10/24/2012, 7:09 PM
But Grif would simply say: $hi+ movie.
LikeItIs - 10/29/2012, 6:48 AM
Most of the cheap comments made here are childish and uncalled for. Josh (Superman) is the official Superman for the annual Metropolis festivals and wouldn't be if he didn't have talent. The soundtrack can't be based off of a minute and a half snippet. The reason fan films and low budget films are even made is because actors, directors, producers and all film staff need to start somewhere. Especially on a ridiculously low budget film. The talent displayed and effort put into them are awesome and so much more than haters could ever produce. So before tearing apart something you could never even imagine creating because you are too busy hating everything, try appreciating the product that so many people put so much effort in creating. If you want higher quality independent fan films cause you think the "look cheap" try supporting them and offering a means to help bring them to a higher level.

This one's not so bad and that Grayson trailer frickin rules. Thanks for posting, Fogs.

And yeah, I really don't understand how many supposed CBM fans don't want to cheer on the little guy. I guess retarded bullies read comics (and don't get anything out of them) as much as the rest of us.

LikeItThis..... Maybe the story will end up being good and the effort will be appreciated, but as it stands...the film looks horrible! the cinematography is amateurish and weak and the lighting is non existent, furthermore there is no mention of the existence of CAMERA ANGLES! I'm a film student and have made better shorts within a very limited amount of time that look and are better than this, not just because i was taught but also because i have a good sense for cinematography and filmmaking in general..... So it's wonderful and undeniably admirable that they're putting their time and money into it, but they could've used it for more important things...such as cinematography and lighting lessons
