General Zod declares his actions in the name of the greater good in the latest Man of Steel TV spot

May. 28, 2013by:

MAN OF STEEL is throwing new trailers and TV spots almost daily as we approach the two week mark before the movie hits theaters. Each seems to build on the anticipation from the third trailer by showing us more and more of the action in the movie. While the initial trailers underwhelmed some (not including myself) with their slow pace and elegiac music, there can be no question Zack Snyder has knocked the marketing out of the park since then. Each new glimpse of the world gives us the action and grand setpieces we have all been wanting in a Superman movie.

This new spot opens with Michael Shannon as General Zod declaring that his actions are for the greater good, but not of humanity. Shannon looks and sounds more maniacal that Terence Stamp's take on the Kryptonian bad guy and I am looking forward to seeing just how crazed he gets.

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 twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyones 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 worlds last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

For all the arguing we do online as to whether MAN OF STEEL is going to be good or not, it is absolutely a step in the right direction for the DC brand. David S. Goyer and Christopher Nolan created a masterful Batman trilogy and their involvement is clear in MAN OF STEEL. I just hope the movie is not wholly dour and serious as Superman is supposed to be fun as well.

MAN OF STEEL starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Richard Schiff, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, and Laurence Fishburne opens on June 14, 2013.

I think Shannon can play unhinged like no other, and I'm looking forward to seeing his take on Zod. Classic though Terence Stamp's version may be, it's hard to get past the pantaloons. He just wasn't very scary on the whole, something Shannon looks to want to change.

Alright already.

If this movie doesn't make a basquillion dollars I'll be completely flabbergasted.

Enough!

Wow Enough with the teasers/trailers/TV spots!!! There are too many already!! Ww know the whole story now, and there won't be anything left to generate excitement and surprises when the movie actually comes out in a few weeks.. It's understandable that Warner is very insecure about the movie having any kind of success, with Superman Returns bombing really bad, and Zack Snyder's lack of box-office success with Sucker Punch and Watchmen under-performing.. And Nolan's involvement pointing to a

And Nolan's involvement pointing to a gritty/dark movie, which doesn't fit at all for the Superman character and his glorious comic-book history, is another bad point for the movie.. Warner looks very desperate to generate any kind of interest, and it's obvious they don't have much faith in this movie.. The only thing that will save this movie are the Nolanites who will flood to the theaters repeatedly to buy tickets to help generate huge box-office gross, like they did with Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises..

I'll agree that WB overall business strategy smacks of desperation, but for everything else you said:

Eat a bag of dicks.

It's called doing "proper marketing". Iron Man 3 was like that for the last few months before its release, too.

I've never heard Michael Shannon's voice before Man of Steel. Does he always sound like he's swallowing his tongue?

You get a kick in the nads for not watching anything with Michael Shannon before.

I agree with Half. How have you never seen ANYTHING with Michael Shannon? Even the Sorority Letter he read was great and hysterical.
