13-Minute Man Of Steel Featurette Crash Lands
Kiss goodbye to (some of) your lunchbreak...

There have been many TV spots, trailers, teasers, posters and stills for Man Of Steel, and Superman fans have been eager to see them all. This 13-minute featurette, however, is something really rather special, chock full of new footage and behind-the-scenes goodness. Set aside a chunk of your lunchbreak and feast your eyes...

There's much to be taken from the super-clip, but stand-out moments include the fanboy hot button topics of Supes' "S" glyph and why director Zack Snyder decided to forgo The Big Blue Boy Scout's unfortunate underwear-outside-the-tights habit. Blame the Victorians, basically.

Man Of Steel finds writer/producers Christopher Nolan and David S Goyer working with director Zack Snyder to cook up a new, re-interpretation of Superman’s (Henry Cavill) origin. The usual story of the Kryptonian orphan who displays super powers thanks his alien roots is present and correct, but filtered through more self-discovery and wrangling with his place in our society. 

And even as he’s discovered by humanity at large, there is fresh danger from General Zod (Michael “I WILL FIND HIM!!!” Shannon), who arrives on Earth and decides that Kal-El should really be more loyal to him than to this planet of weaklings. Cue conflict!

Man Of Steel lands in UK cinemas on June 14.

Great featurette! This movie looks bloody awesome!!! Diane Lane still looks so gorgeous in the featurette. I didn't think they could make her Martha-ish, but looks like they've succeeded. More

RE: 13-Minute Man Of Steel Featurette Crash Lands
Brilliant Featurette! I felt this gave a wonderful insight into the amazing world that has been created and is propelling the DCU into it's initial phases. What a great way to start it off other than Superman! The featurette keeps the secrets at bay still and really focuses on the crew that brought this thing together and the motivation behind the characters. I feel they shed light onto the world they created out of the DC comics and the changes they have made, again without giving away anythin More

They appear to have captured some of the heart of...
...the Salkind movies. From all the footage I've seen, and there's been a huge amount, I have noticed what appear to be numerous nods to the original films. This can only be a good thing. There are moments in those films that haven't been surpassed by any contemporary comic-book movie. More

Not listening, fingers now in ears etc
I've wisely decided to cease and desist all contact with this film until I see it as I was beginning to act like a junkie desperate for the next fix with each new trailer/tv spot. If I hadn't stopped the eventual product would never top my already lofty expectations. NB I still love Superman Returns etc your all wrong etc etc More

Enough Footage already!
Will be watching this in 2D IMAX on the 17th, so have banned myself from watching any more footage! Please let this be good Mr.Snyder! More

Sooo much footage being released!!
I remember about 6 weeks ago when the geeky boards for this film were filled with moaning about the lack of marketing. ''Waaaa didn't they learn from Superman Returns, where's the action?!!'' ''Waaaa, why are there only three trailers with hardly any new footage in them, Iron Man's got 50 trailers?!!'' It appears to have gone the opposite way now, with sooo many TV spots and features. :/ Thankfully, with super levels of control, I've only seen the first three trailers, so I know I have loads More
