If you were watching the Louisville-Michigan National Championship game tonight, then you saw the first TV spot for Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Man of Steel”, his Superman movie reboot. I guess you don’t really need to have “Superman” in the title when Superman is, well, up front and center in all the footage.
In terms of new footage, there’s nothing here that you haven’t seen before in the three previous trailers, but it’s new, so you know, watch some new “Man of Steel” stuff. Even though it’s not technically new, new. If you know what I mean.
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.
Taking off this June 14, 2013.
