Already today we’ve had trailers for After Earth and The Lone Ranger, and now it’s the turn of Man of Steel. All these big movie promos are lining up now in preparation to play ahead of The Hobbit. Man Of Steel is certainly one of the most intriguing. The trailer continues the introspective tone of the teasers, at least initially, before offering something a bit more explosive and action-packed at the end.
There’s definitely an attempt to sell this as the successor to The Dark Knight, although don’t be surprise if things get less artful and more bombastic as the June 14th release date approaches.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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 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 (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin 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.’
May we just say that Henry Cavill is looking gorgeous. Few people have ever looked so good in a spandex suit and cape. And when we say he’s looking hot we’re not just being metaphorical. Take a look at the screengrab below and drool.
