General Zod Has A Message For Us All
Have you seen his Kryptonian pal?

15 April 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Warner Bros.

While the team behind Man Of Steel – including producer Chris Nolan and director Zack Snyder – and studio Warner Bros. have chosen to keep the marketing for the movie relatively scanty compared to other superhero/sci-fi franchises up to now, things are moving up a notch. General Zod, played in the movie by Michael Shannon, has a message for us all with the viral title You Are Not Alone. It’s so nice of him to think of us, because we’ve been feeling awfully vulnerable lately. Take a look below. 

 

Wait… Was that a threat? Was he threatening us? He starts out sounding like he’s looking for a lost dog, then says if we don’t hand some guy called Kal-El over, or if that guy won’t surrender within 24 hours, our world will suffer the consequences. That’s charming, that is. Next thing you know, he’ll be asking us all to kneel.

The movie’s official site is also now pointing to a newly static-filled page called iwillfindhim.com, which has a countdown, presumably to our eternal doom. Or, more likely, to the new trailer, which is scheduled to arrive soon.

In case you’re worried, Superman will be here to save us on June 14 when Man Of Steel lands. Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Antje Traue are all among the cast. You can see the most recent trailer below.

RE: Still not sure!
Looks great to me. SHANNON looks to be great casting. CAVILL... impressive so far. DIANE LANE - hottest Martha Kent ever. The fights look... epic. More

Still not sure!
I love Superman but these trailers are very underwhelming so far. I only hope that this is Nolan's influence and they are simply not giving us anything in the trailer. Obviously I will be queuing up to see this regardless, I just hope I am not disappointed. More

Zod This
Well, that was underwhelming. Some people on here are praising the marketing of Man of Steel. Hey, Prometheus had excellent marketing and was a complete dog of a movie, so marketing means fuck all in the end. The finished product is all that matters. I'm not hooked on this movie yet. I haven't felt the "Wow" factor in anything I've seen or heard so far. Worrying. More

Why?
Does General Zod have an American accent? There is still hope for this film, but an Aliens American accent takes something away from the bad guy. More

Why so serious, Kal-El?
Seriously, doesn't Zod sound a little... Joker? To which I say: Fine! Can't wait for this. More
