Man of Steel Trailer
At the recent San Diego Comic-Con event, Warner Bros. premiered the first “Man of Steel”
trailer. A highly anticipated movie among comic book fans, “Man of Steel” is due for release on June 14, 2013. Henry Cavill leads the cast of the movie as Superman.
Director Zack Snyder revealed at the convention that the filming of the movie is completed, and it is now in the post-production stage.
EW describes the trailer:
The footage began with idyllic shots from the Kansas homestead of the Kent family (interesting fact — it played underneath a Hans Zimmer track from Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line). Intercut with scenes from Clark Kent’s childhood, we see Clark as a bearded adult (Henry Cavill), working, it seems, as a fisherman or longshoreman (perhaps off the coast of Alaska?). As a school bus plunges into a river, we hear a woman say “my son was in the bus — he saw what Clark did,” before we cut to a young Clark, who appears to have lifted the bus out of the water. We hear, then see, Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) warn Clark that “people are afraid of what they don’t understand,” before showing him the ship that delivered Clark to the Kents. “It’s not from this world, Clark,” says Pa Kent. “And neither are you.”
The second half of the footage depicted Clark becoming Superman: Meeting his true father, Jor-El, (Russell Crowe) who bares his chest, revealing the iconic “S” seal; wearing the iconic Superman costume (uniform? raiment?); exploding into the sky with such force, a visible shockwave forms around him; embracing Lois Lane (Amy Adams). We saw a giant blue energy ray tearing into Metropolis, and General Zod (Michael Shannon) racing into an impact with Superman. At least, it’s almost certainly Zod — but more on that in a bit.
The footage ended with Superman/Clark/Kal-El saying that his father (i.e. Pa Kent) “was convinced that the world wasn’t ready [for Superman].
The trailer will be shown at screenings of The Dark Knight Rises which opens in theatres on July 20th.
