Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel starring Henry Cavill as Superman. Rather than focusing on the action, the trailer tries to sell us on what would happen if Superman really existed on our planet and would people really accept someone with God like powers. Of course towards the end of the trailer, we get a good look at some of the big action set pieces and Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Michael Shannon as the villain Zod. But the fact is, every big budget Hollywood movie has action. Without a strong story and characters you care about, the action means nothing. Thankfully, everything I’ve seen thus far on the Man of Steel tells me Snyder has crafted a great Superman film that will deliver everything the fans want and more. It’s easily one of my most anticipated films of 2013. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer and then be prepared to start counting down the days to June 14.
Man of Steel also stars Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe star. Man of Steel opens on June 14, 2013.
Next summer, “Man of Steel” is coming to the big screen. The film is from director Zack Snyder and producers Charles Roven, Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer & Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster and published by DC Comics.
