Warner Bros. has just released a new full-length trailer to their upcoming summer blockbuster Man of Steel. The three-minute trailer promises that Zack Snyder’s vision is going to be massive in scale and epic in its portrayal of a heroic icon. So far, story details are being kept at an absolute minimum. Which, of course, makes sense considering the always-secretive Christopher Nolan is backing the project. Check out the new trailer below.
Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are clearly being smart with the marketing of this film. While the trailer gives away a bit more about the story, offers a closer glimpse of Michael Shannon as the villainous General Zod, and shows off Superman in action, it holds back from being a bit too revealing. It’s safe to assume that Zack Snyder and co. have a few tricks up their sleeves that they won’t dare to reveal just yet.
In Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind. Henry Cavill stars as the man of steel. The film has a fantastic supporting cast that includes Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne, and Christopher Meloni.
The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer and Christopher Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster and published by DC Entertainment.
Man of Steel opens nationwide on June 14th, 2013 in 2D, 3D, and select IMAX theaters.
