We haven't shown any of the aliens. We want to hold that back. And all the images we're showing are from the beginning, up to the first half of the film. We're not showing a lot of where it goes.

Here's a bit of comic book history I found in my files and scanned to share with you. Between around 1966 and 1968, if you sent a letter in to any of the DC comic books featuring Superman, you might get back a copy of a form letter.
