In hindsight, I made the mistake of reading a description of the extended footage presented by WB and Zack Snyder at Comic-Com last week, because they got to see a lot more! So seeing it for my first time truly was a tease.
Silas Lesnick: This looks VERY different from Superman films of the past
Silas Lesnick: We see flashes of Smallville. The farm house. Clark running in a red cape as a child.
Silas Lesnick: An older, bearded Clark walks a snowy road in an arctic town.
Silas Lesnick: We hear Russell Crowe's voice talking about children being inspired to greater things
Silas Lesnick: It sounds like it's cut with Kevin Costner's voice. Both fathers are giving Clark/Kal advice on how to become who he wants to be
Silas Lesnick: We see Clark being brought to the Kent barn and shown the spaceship that has been hidden there
Silas Lesnick: Clark holds a small piece of metal with the S logo on the end
Silas Lesnick: We're jumping back and forth through time periods
Silas Lesnick: Clark, as a teen, saved a bus of kids
Silas Lesnick: The bus crashed in the water and we see him swimming, pulling the door off.
Silas Lesnick: "People are afraid of what they don't understand," says Costner
Silas Lesnick: We see Clark talking to Jor-El. They're standing right in front of one another, but I think it's a holographic projection (though it looks live)
Silas Lesnick: We see Superman in the suit. First from a distance and then walking across a snowy plain
Silas Lesnick: There are flashing of Superman flying and one of him catching someone falling off a building
Silas Lesnick: A single flash of Amy Adams' Lois Lane
Silas Lesnick: One flash has Superman (in costume) -- seemingly in handcuffs -- being led down a hallway by a security force
Silas Lesnick: We see Clark (without seeing his face) stepping into an elevator and begin to lift glasses to his face
Silas Lesnick: There's a flash of Clark, shirtless, with his whole body on fire
Silas Lesnick: Another of him crashing into the bank vault we saw in the first still. It looks like he's been thrown.

I saw the trailer yesterday when I was at the theater. Didn;t realize it was Superman until the end. It's reminiscent of the first Christopher Reeve Superman trailer, though darker nd no as detailed. I'm like you Barbossa, with my antiicipation and curiocity totally peaked.
