Get ready for a treat! Today, Warner Brothers released the first theatrical trailer to Man of Steel. The Zack Snyder directed Superman film, ready to hit theaters next June. Take a look at the trailer, I have a lot to tell you after!
Well?! Wow. What a trailer. It totally achieves what it's supposed to. Whet the appetite and tell us nothing! This trailer has a lot of new footage, that the teaser did not. I feel Christopher Nolan's presense in this trailer by the way. It may be too early to tell, but a "real life" approach to the Fortress of Solitude appears to be in the trailer. Also 'grounded in reality' are the Kents, trying to comfort Clark as a child. He saves a bus full of children, and doesn't know what to make of it.
An older Clark (Henry Cavill) is trying to understand his powers, and seems to runaway to an Alaska-like land, where he can figure out what to do. This part of the trailer was the most intriguing to me. Have any of the movies REALLY delved into the Clark Kent character? I'm sure an argument could be made for the Richard Donner '78 Superman film. But that's about it in my opinion. Back to the trailer... and then the action shots appear! We see alien like spaceships hover upon Smallville. We also get our first glimpse of the Daily Planet team. And, a very short look at Michael Shannon as General Zod is also in the trailer.
Last but not least, we see the beautiful Amy Adams as Lois Lane. She seems to be calming our hero down, as he is surrounded by military personnel. What an impressive trailer. Check it out and let me know what you think. I am very excited about this film!
Fun Movie Fact: Before changing the release date to June 14th, 2013... the movie would have been released THIS Friday. I wish!
