Epic ‘Man of Steel’ Trailer Brings Hope

By  · Published on April 17th, 2013

The first teaser for Warner Bros. Pictures’ Man of Steel – from the director/producer duo of Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan – failed to inspire a number of us, especially those who had been burned before by a new, modern Superman movie. The second trailer didn’t do much either, beyond showing off Clark Kent’s life on the run. This third trailer, released today in conjunction with WB’s presence at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, is pretty major. In one fell swoop, director Zack Snyder answers a number of questions. Will it be set on a grande scale? Yes. Will we see the destruction of Krypton? Yes. Will the flying and fighting scenes be fast, in-focus and at normal speed? Mostly, yes. Does this film deserve a place at the top of Summer’s Most Wanted? Absolutely.

Check out the latest trailer for yourself:

A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.

Man of Steel is directed by Zach Snyder. The film Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Henry Lennix, Christopher Meloni and Laurence Fishburne. It is in theaters June 14, 2013.
