The first trailer for Warner Bros. Superman film, Man of Steel aired during College Basketball tonight. So far, each one is getting me more and more excited about the movie. Still… Zack Snyder. I haven’t loved his stuff in the past and I’m hoping that he’s gone for a less is more approach (at least in the scope of how overblown he usually does stuff.)
The big gimmie, in regards to new footage is Clark Kent, shirtless and on fire.
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, and Russell Crowe also star.
It hits theaters on June 14th.
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.
