Why is the final trailer only like a minute and and half long?

I heard that this trailer is focused on action so I think it will feel a lot longer than it is because there will be a lot of fast cuts I'm presuming.

That's been discussed.
Probably with Iron Man 3, but hopefully with Oblivion.

It's a WB movie and most sites are passing it on.

Total Film:

The plots awash in baseline elements; the planet Krypton; biological dad Jor-El (Russell Crowe); growing up as Clark Kent in Smallville; the Daily Planet; Lois Lane (Amy Adams)... David S Goyer worked up a list of "about 20 or 30 core characteristics" around which he built his script. the choice of villain came "pretty early on" he says, though his and Nolan's approach - as with Batman - was to thrash out a narrative then see which baddie fit best." To an extent, it's a film about first contact, and about him deciding whether or not to embrace his Kryptonian heritage, so Zod was the logical choice. We really couldn't have used any other villain to tell this particular story"

Until now there's only been one General Zod: Terrence Stamp (Superman and 1980's Superman II)' who mustered menace despite looking like a Bee Gee in a space-age jumpsuit. That's about to change with Michael Shannon. He's about to terrorise, tyrannise and really get on Superman's tits. But don't call him a villain "He's not a villain" remarks Shannon. "He's not a villain anymore than any other General fighting to protect his people. He doesn't like to just hurt people and steal diamonds; he's focused on being successful at his job." Which if Shannon's past roles are anything to go by - Revolutionary Road, Boardwalk Empire; Take Shelter; take your pick - he'll pursue with bug eyed intensity.

But still, the modern Zod will be a shaded beast, not someone going full panto. "I think the way Terrence Stamp approached it - and this isn't any kind if criticism of his performance - there was something kind of detached about it" Shannon muses "Pure, hatred, rage, whatever... I think this [characterisation] is more ambiguous." As for the outfit, it's goodbye to the disco-wear and hello to more battle friendly armour - armour so hardy, it had to be realised in motion-capture "because the real thing would probably crush me".
