Zack Snyder‘s upcoming DC comic book adaptation of Superman, titled Man of Steel, is slowly increasing its advertising and awareness around the world. The film is scheduled for a release on June 14th and up until now I think only the die-hards and film buffs have really been attracted to the project.
The general audience still hasn’t really weighed in on their thoughts of a darker and much more serious version of Superman, similar to Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight trilogy.
Nolan’s a producer this time around, with director Zack Snyder coming off of the massive disappointment Sucker Punch and the poorly received Watchmen adaptation (which is my all-time favorite comic book movie).
I think together the two will strike gold and bring the Superman character back up to the top, resting directly next to Batman and not below him.
The full-length trailer for the film really sold me and now today we’ve got the first official TV spot, which is basically the same trailer, but cut down to size, with a few brief new shots added in.
I like it, but I’ve liked it since I saw the trailer. We should be getting a new full-length trailer shortly, so keep checking back for it!
Here’s the TV spot below:
