The second full length trailer to Man of Steel has arrived. And it is easily the best trailer of 2013. It is absolutely incredible. Stop reading and start watching. Read my thoughts after.
Where do I begin? How about the incredible score by one of the best musical talents of our generation? Hans Zimmer has been tasked with creating a score for the ages. If the trailer is any indication, we're in for one hell of a treat. How about Lois Lane (Amy Adams) trekking across the country, in search of this mysterious man? Something we've never seen before in a Superman film. Or the wonderful additions of Clark Kent's loving fathers. Played perfectly by Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner. What about the perfectly scary Michael Shannon as General Zod? He's obviously hell bent on getting Kal-el (Superman), back in his grips. And last, but not least, this generation's Superman, Henry Cavill? He's speaking of hope, and not just truth and justice? He was a fragile boy, wanting a normal life. Then a reclusive young man, wanting to be left alone; only to come out from the darkness as "the answer", as Kevin Costner puts it.
Perhaps Director Zack Snyder, and producer Christopher Nolan were the answer. The answer to the age old question... 'how do you make a great Superman film'?
