Watch the MAN OF STEEL Trailer Set to John Williams’ SUPERMAN Score

     July 24, 2012


The first teaser trailer for director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel finally debuted last weekend with The Dark Knight Rises, and audiences were given their first taste of what the new iteration of Superman will entail.  While the clip didn’t show nearly as much footage as the reel we saw at Comic-Con, it did a pretty nice job of announcing to audiences that a new—and decidedly different—Superman is on the way.  My only minor qualm with the trailer was the use of Howard Shore’s incredibly recognizable (and fantastic) score from The Lord of the Rings.  I was left thinking, “Did Gandalf just die?” instead of being wholly enveloped by this new Superman story.

For fans that weren’t crazy about the music choice, or for classic Superman fans in general, the Internets have kicked up quite the gem.  Someone has removed Shore’s score and replaced it with John William’s classic theme from 1978’s Superman as the backing track for the Man of Steel trailer.  Hit the jump to check out the incredibly swell new cut.

Here’s the John Williams Cut trailer via Giant Freaking Robot, followed by the trailer for the original Superman.
