Action Abounds in New UK TV Spot for MAN OF STEEL

     May 10, 2013


Warner Bros. has released a new TV spot for director Zack Snyder’s take on Superman, Man of Steel, and it’s pretty massive in scope.  The spot highlights quite a bit of new footage from the film, including a couple of scenes that take place in space.  WB’s marketing campaign has moved into full “action” mode with the latest spots and trailers for Man of Steel, as we’re starting to see just how intense Snyder’s level of destruction is in the film.

Hit the jump to watch the TV spot.  Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, and Russell Crowe.  Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.

Via Yahoo! UK.

Here’s the official synopsis for Man of Steel:

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) 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 (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), 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.

    This is by LEAPS & BOUNDS the greatest TV spot!

  • Rob R

    looks amazing!!

  • Jason Richards

    Man this movie just keeps looking better and better.

  • Jason Richards

    Wait, Zod is using heat vision? HOLY SHIT!!!!

    • Elephant

      I didn’t know either that he did that. I just keep getting excited about this movie every day.

    • The Question

      Zod is also Kryptonian. He would have the same powers as Superman.

  • LolatNolan

    This trailer confirmed that the film should be called Man o Shite. Superman does the Jesus on the cross pose? Lol. “What if a man strived to be different?” You mean like every person ever. And Superman’s slow motion “NOOOOOOOOOOOOO” confirmed that Snyder is indeed the director. Get ready for Transformers 4: Man of Steel. LOL.

    • Jason Richards

      Nice job trolling. Now go out and get a life and a job.

    • Kyle Huttson Knaus

      this guy does this with every post related to chris nolan..look at his name..i dont know why they dont just ban people like this

      • LolatNolan

        Silencing dissenting opinion is what fascists do. When you grow up you’ll learn to respect others.

      • NathanArizona

        ha, yes because you are clearly respecting people who worked on a movie you haven’t seen, yet call it shit. And downvoting everyone that opposes you only makes you look more like a whiny baby. Yes, anyone who calls you on your ridiculous posts must be a fascist, thank you for what you bring to film discussions, LolatNolan, you clearly have lots of intelligent and thoughtful things to say.

        Also, your reply to me in the Gravity talkback is so silly I’m not going to reply there. You ignored all my points, instead choosing to focus on an opinion-based argument that David Goyer is an equal writer to Uwe Boll. If you will side-step having an actual discussion with me, I’m done with you.

      • LolatNolan

        Why are you so angry? It’s just a movie. ;)

      • NathanArizona

        Lol at LolatNolan

      • LolatNolan

        Lulz. ;)

      • NathanArizona

        and you delete your comments after you’ve been proven wrong. You won’t even stand by your words. You are useless.

      • LolatNolan

        translation: gotten to. I’m man enough to admit when I’m wrong unlike you. Lulz

      • LolatNolan

        No pithy response to that eh?

      • NathanArizona

        lol that’s cute. No I’m not from Arizona, ask Joel and Ethan Coen where my screen name comes from. You have proven you have nothing of substance to say, and downvote all opposing talkbackers, yet deflect all attempts at an actual conversation to instead talk about Uwe Boll and the state of Arizona. This isn’t even about Man of Steel or your Nolan hate anymore, this about you being a really annoying, one-note talkbacker who cannot back up his statements with a single intelligent thought. Notice how no one is agreeing with you with upvotes, nor coming to your defense in the talkbacks? Take a hint buddy, and take a hike. LOL.

      • LolatNolan

        Lol. You’re positively livid. It’s embarrassing. And I’d be in a sorry state if my selfworth depended on the upvotes from Superman comicbook nerds like your’s does.

      • NathanArizona

        yep, you’re right, you’ve really put me in my place. My whole day has been ruined because I am so livid, as you say, at some faceless pipsqueak on Well done, you’ve had a big week; somebody taught you the word “fascist”, and you participated in an internet war. Have a cookie.

      • LolatNolan

        translation: pwned

      • LolatNolan

        Also, does anybody know if there is a Chris Nolan impersonator that i can hire to come to my house, gather my family in the living room, drop his pants and start pissing in my open mouth while yelling “ACTION”? I’d really like that, in fact, i’m pretty sure that it’ll be the best birthday ever! I’m willing to pay $300 cash. $350 if he can make it taste like asparagus.

      • LolatNolan

        I’ve read about this in the Hollywood Reporter. Chris Nolan comes to this website and writes the above comment. Google it if you don’t believe. What a sicko!

    • NathanArizona

      your posts confirm that you are an idiot.

      • LOLatNathanArizona

        For anyone interested here’s the weird supes stuff NathanArizona posted at Ain’t it Cool. He’s too cowardly to post this weirdness here but I thought I’d share so you all know who you’re dealing with. Behold :

        “lol worst case scenario, you leave her at home to go see the movie, cause she’s on bed rest and all, and she makes you promise to keep your phone on “just in case”. So halfway through the movie, your phone goes off, you ignore it, it’s probably just a buddy calling to see if you wanna do beers next week. Two minutes later, as Zod is ripping Metropolis to shreds, the phone just rings and rings and rings. Now you’re disturbing everyone around you, so you turn the phone off. The next twenty minutes are great, Superman escapes from police and punches a guy across the city, whoa cool, when you suddenly think you hear your name being shouted. You look down to the theatre entrance, and there’s your wife holding her belly, water has broke, and she’s flailing the car keys in the air and yelling your name. In shame, you exit the row saying excuse me as you pass the people, and when you ask your wife to stay five more minutes, she grabs you by the ear and drags you out, saying something like “It’s Superman or me!” but you can’t quite be sure because she’s tugging on your Christing ear so hard”

      • LOLatNathanArizona

        Oh, and one last thing Nathan: Do you by any chance know if there is a Chris Nolan impersonator that i can hire to come to my house, gather my family in the living room, drop his pants and start pissing in my open mouth while yelling “ACTION”? I’d really like that, in fact, i’m pretty sure that it’ll be the best birthday ever! I’m willing to pay $300 cash. $350 if he can make it taste like asparagus.

      • Chris Nolan

        Ah hoy hoy faithful Nolanites. It is I, your messiah, Chris Nolan. I hope you all enjoyed the above comment posted by my brother/boy toy Jonathan Nolan (I call him jon jon around the house;) ). If you ever see this comment copied and pasted into comment sections regarding Chris Nolan (myself) please don’t post glib responses. Jonathan is genuinely offering the above bargain. And I know you’ll not call the police about it because if you let me get away with The Dark Knight Rises, by God, you’ll let me get away with anything.

    • Dallas


      • LolatNolan

        Because of all the reasons listed in the above comment.

      • Dallas

        But why?

    • scottish_punk

      Everyone dislikes you, bro. Just give up.

      • LolatNolan

        Lulz, nah. I’m entertained beyond belief. Why stop now?

      • Guest

        I mean, am i as entertained as i would be if a Chris Nolan impersonator came to my house, gathered my family in the living room, dropped his pants and started pissing in my open mouth while yelling “ACTION”? Of course not, but this is pretty close! ;-)

    • Alan Burnett

      It takes a real HERO to post anonymously.

      • Lol@nolan

        Are you the Alan Burnett that works for Warner Bros? Of course you’d defend your cashcow, lulz.

      • Lol@nolan

        And one more thing Alan: Do you guys by any chance have a Chris Nolan impersonator that i can hire to come to my house, gather my family in the living room, drop his pants and start pissing in my open mouth while yelling “ACTION”? I’d really like that, in fact, i’m pretty sure that it’ll be the best birthday ever! I’m willing to pay $300 cash. $350 if he can make it taste like asparagus.

      • Alan Burnett

        You want to have a man urinate in your mouth? And you want us to organize that for you? OK, then … Yeah, don’t repeat the joke: it humiliates you and embarrasses everyone else. If your idea of humor is THAT joke, then I kinda just feel sad for you more than anything else.

  • sense11

    This movie is going to be so fucking good


    this Nolan/Snyder hater down here can go suck on a bulls dick

  • MEGC

    Aerial shots m/

  • Rich Woa

    Was any of this shot with the IMAX camera? Either way this movie looks super

  • davenetsoo

    This movie is going to expose what crap Iron Man 3 really is

  • Elephant

    Love the shot of Superman breaking out of handcuffs at 0:24. I’d like to see him throw an F-18 at Zod. But that’s just me.
    Man of Steel, we need you after the disappointment that was Iron Man 3.

    • CF no A though

      No doubt Elephant! Can’t wait to see this! I got goose bumps. I really hope this is the movie that redeems Zack.

    Having been drawn into so many great trailers for what turned out to be weak films, I’ve learned not to get excited about pre-release material. However, with Man Of Steel, I’m giving all that up. This looks so damn good! (Don’t let me down!)

    Was that the robot from The Incredibles?

    Watched ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ in 3D yesterday (released in India).
    Whatever the critics say, this movie is a good wacth maybe not as defining as the earlier one in 2009. Fine acting by the crew. Interesting storyline, someone dies at the end (watch the movie to figure out who).

    Ok, the villain. Cumberbatch is a great actor. But I felt there is something missing especially if he is playing …. ;-)

  • Melissa

    what action???? that was the same stuff we have seen already….SHOW us something ……

    • Duh

      yeah please show us more footage so we will know each scene of the movie before we see it!
