‘Man of Steel’ Teaser

It seems like it’s been forever since it was announced, but Warner Bros’s ‘Man of Steel’ finally gets its teaser trailer. As it stands, there are two versions of the trailer – one with Kevin Costner doing the V/O and another with Russell Crowe. Both actors are on my ‘I’m not going to like this because ________’s in it’ list, so I’m probably a little biased in saying that this teaser trailer is pretty, well… emo. It seems like they’ve taken the dark, broody nature of Nolan’s Batman and pimped it out to Superman all the while lying against a backdrop of stolen LoTR soundtrack.

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question ‘Why am I here?’ Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.

Man of Steel stars opens in cinemas June 14, 2013. Until then…
