My first impression was 'what the...' but it caught my attention in a positive way. This has moved ahead of the new Star trek on my might see list.
As long as somebody keeps making up stories for it, the City isn't gone.

Growing up, I liked Superman but he was always chopped liver to Batman--this movie might make a true blue Supes fan out of me! Seriously, the chills and jitters I get when watching the 2nd and 3rd trailer are really pumping me up for this!

So far everything I've seen from this movie appears to be 100% what I want from a Superman movie.

The only complaints the I've seen so far is that it looks too serious and somber. For me I see a serious, poignant, stoic Superman which is exactly how I see him. Yeah I grew up Christopher Reeves Superman movies, but as an adult I've always wanted a less "goofy" Superman movie.

I think they're setting up an EXCELLENT springboard for Justice League here, can't wait.

I see that they've embraced the whole "Superman as Christ" analogy.  Why else do you make him a fisherman at one point in his life?

Jesus Christ was a carpenter by trade.  I'm sure he went fishing at times, but it was not his "profession" according to scripture.  Of course, he was called a "fisher of men".

Back on topic:  Man of Steel looks like it is going to be an amazing movie.  Haven't been this excited about a film since Iron Man (see avatar :D).

Superman also shares a lot in common with Hercules. So he's sort of always had the 'son of a god' thing going on. Just pull the classic sci-fi switcheroo of, "hey, what if what we thought were gods were actually advanced aliens?"
