New Man Of Steel Trailer Is Here!
First look at Michael Shannon's Zod

12 December 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Warner Bros.

submit to reddit

The first Man Of Steel teasers (one is at the bottom of the page) opted for a moodier tone for Zack Snyder, Chris Nolan and David Goyer’s take on Superman than most Supes adventures when they first appeared back in July. It’s a tone that’s most definitely continued in the first official full trailer, which you can watch below.

 

It’s clear that Snyder and co. are going for a heightened reality feel, but this new footage also offers a little more of the hefty scope of the film. Yes, we get lots of shots of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent looking solemn, but there are also visions of a big battle, Clark on fire, Russell Crowe’s Jor-El and Amy Adams. Oh, and a certain Mr. Michael Shannon as Zod. Kneel!

But the real co-stars here are Diane Lane as Martha Kent and Kevin Costner as Jonathan, both trying to impart wisdom to the young Clark as he struggles with his place in the world. It also appears that we’ll get to see a teenage Clark helping some schoolmates out of a hairy bus crash and that giving him something of an existential crisis.

It’s definitely looking promising, and we quite like how they’re holding back some of the spectacle while giving us enough of the flavour to whet our appetites. What say you lot? Tell us on Twitter and in the comments below.

Man Of Steel touches down on June 14, and we’re seriously looking forward to it. 

 

P.S. If you want to get a closer look at the characters seen in the new trailer, take a look at this screengrab gallery we've put together for you below...

RE: SUPER-AWESOME!
I'm not sure Superman is worthy of a second reboot, the first film was fine but looks a tad dated in terms of effects, what new are they going to bring to the table, trailer looks fine but it's just looks like a remake of the first story, which has been done before. More

This looks really good to me. I think Goyer's idea will be more complex though, than an angsty god in primary colours. When you really strip it down I think it will be: How do you bring up a child who could destroy the planet? How do you send Kal-El to his room? I think the angst will be on Jonathan and Martha, who will have to do their best to raise someone whose destiny is to save or enslave 7 Billion people.

Man of Steel trailer
Absolutely stunning trailer, and it looks like the Superman film many have been waiting for. It looks modern, relevant and the tone looks just about perfect. Too many people throw the word 'dark' around, but 'dark' is just a word (and this film doesn't look very dark, btw..it just looks moody). The tone is what it is, and as I said above, it looks in-keeping with the times. Can't wait to see this one, been anticipating this kind of Superman film for many years. More
