Epicness Abounds in New 3-Minute Man of Steel Trailer

Hold onto your panties, boys and girls, here’s the new trailer for Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”. And because the usual 2 and a half minutes you usually get from a regular trailer can’t possibly hold all the awesomeness contained within, they expanded it to 3 minutes, with an extra 30 seconds of badassery for you to gawk at. So what are you waiting for? Start yer gawkin, gawkers.

And that whole “S” gag at the end? Cute. I guess they really ARE trying to keep the movie from using the “S” word, which I guess makes sense given the lack of a “Superman” in the title of the movie. Probably saving it for the very end, I’m guessin’.

Clark Kent​/Kal-El 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 and Jonathan Kent, 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.

Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe.
