If “Superman Returns” was the smorgasbord beef, then “Man of Steel” might be the tasty apple crumble we wash it down with.
What is shaping up to be the year’s foremost franchise blockbuster-in the making is only a couple of short months away from us now.
This latest trailer, showcasing even more of the action as well as ‘deepness’ to be found in the cells of Zack Snyder’s ‘Superman’ reboot, reiterates what a good time this is going to be – maybe even a great time.
“Man of Steel” stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, and Russell Crowe, and opens in June.
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.
