Okay, I genuinely spent about 2/3 of this trailer thinking it was another Superman reboot.

As it is, it seems to be "What if Superman were an evil psychotic monster?"

Or rather, given the modern Superman, it's "What if Superman were an even more evil psychotic monster?"

I'll give this a shot. Evil Superboy. Kill him before he becomes an evil Superman!

I'm truly surprised DC isn't suing over this. It's so obviously a Superman rip off.

Was just coming to post that!

I gotta say, if they don't wuss out on things this could be a good movie.
