Superman Sells Hamburgers and New Man of Steel TV Spot

Good God, do people actually eat these Hardee’s hamburgers? Two of these things in a week might just cause your heart to explode. Or close enough, anyway. Superman could probably eat 50 of these things and not feel any effects whatsoever, but us lowly mortals, on the other hand? Anyhoo. Check out a new Hardee’s commercial featuring Cavill himself helping to sell the Super Bacon Thickburger (that name, yikes), and a new TV spot (the 6th, if you’re keeping track at home) that pours on even more footage.

I promise, I’ll stop posting these TV spots as soon as they stop making them worthwhile. Right now, though, these spots are just too cool and offer so much new footage, it’s my duty to keep posting them.

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.
