Warner Bros. premiered a new “Man of Steel” preview during a CinemaCon event in Las Vegas. Director Zack Snyder (“300”) was on hand to present the new Superman trailer, which will run before “Oblivion” in theaters.
Snyder discussed the power of Superman when introducing the world premiere of the “Man of Steel” trailer at CinemaCon, notes The Hollywood Reporter. Snyder said of Superman, played by Henry Cavill (“The Tudors”) in the new movie, “There’s no competition between superheroes, but if there was, he’d win.”
The highly anticipated movie will be in theaters on June 14 and Snyder promises a true blockbuster for the latest Superman movie. “Man of Steel” was shot on film and Snyder wanted Superman’s story to be a “big movie experience.”
The latest “Man of Steel” trailer is just over three minutes and reveals more about Clark Kent, Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Superman's father Jor-El (Russell Crowe). The trailer starts off with the war on Krypton and Jor-El saying goodbye to his child. In a voiceover the question, What if a child dreamed to be something other than what society intended? What if a child aspired to something greater?” The trailer focuses on a young Clark Kent as he becomes aware that he’s not a human who was born on Earth.
Lane is briefly shown but discusses in a voiceover that she’s been following Kent’s heroic deeds although he remains elusive. Superman is also shown in his iconic outfit and there are several looks at Superman flying and getting involved in several large-scale action scenes. General Zod (Michael Shannon) also makes an appearance as Superman’s main adversary in "Man of Steel."
There seems to be plenty of action as well as some emotion in the “Man of Steel” trailer. The brief glimpses show off the movie’s budget and reveal the large scope of the film. Snyder is known for his action sequences, and the latest trailer has fans hoping “Man of Steel” could be the first good Superman man movie since Richard Donner’s movie starring Christopher Reeve.
