Warner Bros. have released a great new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. I don’t consider myself a Superman fan as I find the character outdated, and I found Sucker Punch to be more video-game than movie, but this is a Superman film I can get behind.
Snyder, with influence from Christopher Nolan, looks to have created a movie Superman fans have been waiting for. We’ve only heard brief clips of it, but Hans Zimmer’s score is already pretty memorable. Warner Bros. have a lot riding on Man of Steel so here’s hoping it lives up to the bar these trailers are setting, and it lays a path for the studio towards the Justice League movie and beyond.
Watch the trailer below:
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here?
Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
Man of Steel opens on June 14th, 2013.
