I’m getting the impression that this film will be a mix of the Superman American alien story and Superman Secret origins. I like what I see so far from this trailer.

This actor appeared on Glee and played the Music Meister on the 2 part Supergirl / Flash crossover.

So it is an S! 😀

Sorry about that. A little joke referencing MoS. 😉

Not feeling this so far. If they were going to pull from something I wish it wasn’t American Alien. Don’t like the idea of Lobo being his first super-brawl and it seems way too early for him to be meeting Martian Manhunter who is apparently an already established hero before Superman?
