Now comes perhaps the most obvious of them all. Star Trek Into Darkness (that title...!) and Man of Steel both released new posters yesterday and you'd be forgiven for thinking they were spinoffs from Nolan's Batman universe. The former especially with its mangled steelworks and logo rising out of rubble design (below on the left) that all but owes The Dark Knight Rises royalties. Man of Steel on the other hand continues that film's gloomy rebirth with a poster that shows a shackled (if if they could ever) Superman surrounded by black armoured guards. It's all very dark and shadowy and call me when somebody does something new, yeah?
Can we get any more yawn worthy than these two posters? I honestly don't think we can. Next summer is going to be so much fun, I can tell!
