Ok, I'm totally not the geek around here (that's Mark's job), and I haven't really been interested in the endless hype about Superman Returns - it's the sort of thing that I'll see if a friend is desperate to go, but otherwise probably won't catch in the theater. And I just got a little giddy just reading about footage from the movie - it might just turn out to be pretty good.

Quint of AICN attended Warner's Superman panel at ShoWest yesterday, and had a chance to see what sounds like a very extended trailer for the film that included a whole lot of new footage. Now, granted, no one at AICN is going to be lukewarm about anything related to this movie, so his glee definitely needs to be taken with a grain of salt. That said, however, it really does sound fantastic - what got to me was less the images Quint described that the overall tone of the footage, which reminds me of the shamelessly eager, distinctively American (Believe me, I was as surprised as you are when that adjective popped into my head, but I think it's fitting in this case.) optimism that made the original so damn wonderful.

What do you people who actually know your Superman think about the report? Does anything there interest you, or am I just getting excited over nothing?
