Anyone with half a brain could have guessed this one, but now it’s confirmed. Director Zack Snyder told MTV News that we’ll get a brand new full-length trailer for his upcoming Superman film Man of Steel in front of the highly-anticipated release of Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey next month on December 14th.
This is usually the case for all major films released from WB. They attached a trailer for The Dark Knight Rises in front of the final Harry Potter and then they attached the Man of Steel teaser in front of The Dark Knight Rises. The Hobbit will only help ease into Man of Steel (and maybe even Pacific Rim) and then those films will cater to whatever comes next.
I hope we get an actual look at Superman in action and not just some Terrence Malick-looking scenery, which is great and all, but I’m guessing not exactly the majority of the film that we’ll be seeing.
Man of Steel releases in IMAX 3D on June 14th, 2013.
