Pretty much sums up my reaction as well. I just can't muster up enough geek juice to extrapolate anything on the basis of this picture's minute details (His hair! His expression! The texture of his suit!)
I'm torn on this one. On the one hand, the cast is downright incredible. That, plus Snyder's eye married to Nolan's grasp of story and character suggests we may be in for something special. On the other hand, all of Snyder's films have been well cast and I still haven't liked any of them (to be fair, I haven't seen Sucker Punch but I doubt that would change my opinion). On top of that, I love the guy but Nolan has been consistently drawn to tortured souls consumed by obsession which is perfect for Batman but all kinds of wrong for Superman. I hope he realizes that, or, if not, proves me wrong.
It will be interesting to see who they go with to score the picture. I could certainly understand them ditching Williams' score, but if they do, I hope they still go for something big, sweeping and orchestral - i.e. not Zimmer and for the love of God and all that is good and true in the world not Tyler Bates.
