Some quick notes. By now you’ve certainly seen Zack Snyder’s tweet teasing the 2 minute 6 second trailer for release on Monday. The footage of Superman’s suit was originally shot for Man of Steel and used in the promotion of the film, including the 2nd Official Trailer, however it is not in the film itself. I’ve double checked to be sure. If I’m in error, please comment with a timecode and I’ll correct that right away!
The suit is also the MOS suit and not the BVS suit which has subtle differences.
However, the main takeaway is that at least for this teaser, there was clear emphasis on making Superman’s classic colors pop. This is consistent with our discussion on colors in Episode 18. Man of Steel was about creating a grounded reality where Superman fit in with it and thus his colors were muted… however, now that we’re moving into a world where he stands out as exceptional, needs to be contrasted against the Bat, and the audience has been acclimated to the reality… the creators can push towards bolder and brighter colors which might have been confronting in the first film, but meaningful in this one.
From the Bat suit, it’s apparent that there still will be filters on this film, but I expect their use might be more stylized this time around than their application in MOS. We’ll be back Monday night with impressions!
