My whole point not been about the aspect ratio but the way the comparisons have been faulty presented. we all seasoned viewers(well in the conversation) here and know all about above
Here you go how’s about this then, as good as it gets using my phone.

TVs do not shrink the image and add black bars.
Well according to Samsung your home theatre adds the black bars.

Most current films have an aspect ratio 2.35:1. Many recent theatrical releases distributed on DVD and labeled as "widescreen" retain this very wide aspect ratio. Because the image of these movies is wider than a widescreen TV, your home theater places black bars on the top and bottom of the screen. Most widescreen DVDs on the market will not fill the entire screen on your TV because they have been recorded in an aspect ratio that is different from your TV's.

If people want to watch it in widescreen then just zoom it, nothing wrong with providing the full image and letting people choose, same goes for grainy films where it is far better to offer an accurate presentation complete with grain and if people want the super sharp de-grained look they can just use the settings on their TV to alter it rather than scrubbing it clean resulting in a waxy mess being the only option.

I have a different take on the 4:3..... i think this is Zach's way of showing it's his show and no one else's , i think more of a personal statement than just an artistic choice..... he's showing his power. JMO.

Yeah that would be a logical option however not all TVs allow that option with a 4K signal, don’t know if that’s something that’s changed recently but my Panasonic certainly doesn’t allow it.

Ok..just to get the thread back on topic...do we have any info about the discs and what they contain?

Zooming it is not watching it on widescreen, that's just making things worse.
Granted a bit of the framing might be off but if they had put out a 1:85.1 release it would have just been the 4:3 release we have with sections of the top and bottom masked, sure some fans are already hard at work doing their own "Widescreen" version on their computers by doing just this.

This is the last I am going to talk about the aspect ratio (he says and 10 minute later there will be 10 more posts :)) the issue isn't that it is in 4:3 or wanting to watch it widescreen, its that it is a odd decision to begin with. How many times will the average person see this in a IMAX? How many people have IMAX screens at home? It seems like people are talking more about this then the actual film.

I can't see the benefit of the the taller framing, directors have been using 1.78:1 for decades to frame taller is they need to (even Spielberg or Jurassic Park). If he had just filmed this at 1.78:1 or 1.85:1 no one will be saying oh I wish I could see more of what's going on at the top or the bottom of the frame.

If the movie is in 4:3 I will watch it that way no way will I zoom and stretch, but still think its a gimmick and not a good one.

Does the menu screen spoil the fact
superman
is in this movie like the original did? I never saw the trailers so maybe the trailer ruined everything like they always do.

What are you meaning by menu screen?
It’s not that much of a surprise though when he’s been in every piece of promotional material.
