Superman returns in the brand new trailer for Man of Steel

Dec. 11, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Holy shit, I have goosebumps!

MAN OF STEEL just debuted the brand new trailer that will be in theaters in front of THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY and it allays all fears I had from the first teasers.

Yes, we will be getting another origin story but it looks like Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan are keeping their promise that this will be a new Superman for a new generation. Yes, the story is the same one we know, but it does look fresh from these images. Snyder's visual style looks more subdued than usual which makes me very happy. it looks....realistic.

We get our first looks at General Zod, Lois Lane, Ma and Pa Kent, as well as Jor-el. We see Superman on fire. We see the creation of the Fortress of Solitude. We see the image of Superman in chains from the poster. We see pretty much everything and it is awesome.

MAN OF STEEL has just gone from on my list to top of my list for next Summer. Henry Cavill looks like the closest thing we have ever had to the comic book Superman. His Clark Kent is still a mystery as we only see him as a young man or with the scraggly fisherman beard. No fedora and horn-rimmed glasses from this trailer.

MAN OF STEEL will open in theaters on June 14, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Anyone else notice Michael Shannon's Zod looks like John Travolta in that awful Christmas music video?

MAN OF STEEL

I gotta say I'm looking forward to this! For one thing, I'll watch any movie with Kevin Costner! I know a lot of people dislike him but, I think he will make a really good Pa- Kent. I'm not a big fan of Zack Snyder though. Aside from the 2004 DAWN OF THE DEAD re-make in my opinion he really hasn't made anything that is what I would consider a quality film. He does have style though and hopefully he will do MAN OF STEEL justice! We'll have to wait till next June to see though.

Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful trailer

But come on - NONE of the story is being presented, and ALL of the film's tone is being hidden behind the trailer's imposed, heavily nostalgic tone instead. Does this really reflect the movie, or was it invented entirely for the trailer? WE DON'T KNOW. Show me some real pieces of the plot, actual examples of character interactions, and an HONEST representation of the movie's tone, and maybe I won't be so suspicious that the trailer is trying to manipulate me into thinking the movie is

Would you prefer a 1970's era trailer, heavy on narrator exposition and walks you through every major scene of the film up to the third act? The criticism you're levying is applicable to just about every trailer for a major studio action film release.

Looks great and this is still really a teaser/trailer.
Two things about this one, it has a feel of Supes power which past movies never really showed. the sequence where he is about to take off and his fist pushes against the ground almost causing a small quake.
And second this shows they are serious about trying to make this the beginning of a combined DC movie universe.

Was very skeptical at first, but now..........wow.

I was ready to rip on this film, until I saw the kids being saved on the bus by Clark, and young Clark asking, "Was I suppose to let them die?" Costner, "Maybe."
That's why I love these style of comic book films, like The Dark Knight trilogy they question everything, especially purpose.

I'd like to point out, even though it's totally useless to do so on Joblo, that it's always nice to see that you cannot have a different opinion than that of the majority for just about any article/news, even though the "strikeback" section is here for that reason. Heck, even Joblo's own writer have to take shit from some/most readers sometime. Kinda ridiculous.

You can have a different opinion, you just don´t have to care about getting "thumbed down" by the majority of fanboys. Personally, I don´t give a shit.

The problem for the thumb system is that there is no way to discern people giving thumbs down because you are dissenting from group think, or because you are posting opinions in a disrespectful way. Given that the "emotional age" of members is about 15, you aren't going to get cut a lot of slack for thinking outside of the box.

Looks awesome...

I had my doubts in the first pics they released, but the more I see the more I can't wait for it. Also Snyder is an unbelievable directed, I wouldn't take too much credit away from him just because Nolan is attached to it. Snyder has always had great looks and feels to his films along with a dope vision. ...btw, the beard is awesome sauce.

I have to agree with John Matrix...

The trailer didn't do much for me. Will I be seeing this movie, of course, that's not even the argument. From the look so far, we may finally get the superman fight we been waiting to see. But so far didn't wow me like the Avengers trailer did. Besides, Im slightly bias cuz Christopher Reeves will always be Superman to me, hands down.

Agreed with Cezar Pena

The soundtrack makes it sound ultra serious & dark. Take the same scenes and add the John Williams score and the entire tone of the trailer changes drastically: [link]

This is epic

And I'm guessing the serious tone people are talking about is mainly because of the soundtrack chosen for the trailer. Now toss in the Superman theme and see the difference.

Well the "strikeback" is kinda here for us to voice if we like or do not like the article (or news) in question. In that case I do not like this trailer and I am not excited for this Superman movie so far. Nothing I have seen has done anything for me so far. Did I say I "hated the trailer" and I being a "hater"? No, just saying what I think based on what I saw. Some people like to hate for the sake of hating or "troll", sorry to say alphatross that I did neither of these things.

Watching the trailer again, I find myself getting a little choked up at the opening lines: "the world's too big, Mum." "Then make it small". That's just beautiful.

The only thing that would have made this trailer better would have been John William's iconic Superman theme.

I'm sold. This doesn't look like an overly dark & realistic Superman (which I was afraid of). It looks like Superman. It looks like the Superman I've been wanting to see since I was a kid. Kudos to Snyder. Though I am still a bit skeptical over Goyer writing this solo (he has an extraordinarily bad track record with his solo scripts).

Nolan is credited with story, not screenplay, which means he didn't write it. Nolan has already said that this is 100% Snyder's & Goyer's movie.

Superman inspired Neo's "Superman thing," namely the take-off, and now Neo inspired Snyder/Nolan to give Supes a Neo-style take-off. The circle is now complete.

Nolan brings the much-needed dark tone from THE Batman Trilogy, but I can't help but notice the lens flare effects inspired by J.J. Abrams, albeit more subtle and less frequent. Moderation is the key. Now if we ever get this in 48fps then we know it's also got Jackson's influence. I hope The Man of Steel also becomes a trilogy, one that rivals TDK Trilogy.

On a side note did any one else think of Gladiator with the music in the background. Maybe its just because I watched it two nights ago. But still, the work excited fails to convey this feeling properly. Come on next summer!

It is beautiful. This sounds, appropriately, no matter hard as it is to imagine, like Superman is the next Dark Knight Trilogy. Don't want to get ahead of myself, but this is definitely a pointer in that direction. Love it. Love it. Love it. Hope it works out or I'm going to be crushed. Amy Adams may not look the part but anyone whose watched her knows she's got the attitude and depth. Snyder can work with actors to get the best result while making it exciting, hence "300" and "Watchmen", he

I could eat my words next summer, but so far, Superman is getting exactly what he needs.The TDK treatment while recognizing it is the opposite character and how it would relate in our world, like if in a few minutes someone came from the sky, what mass religious hysteria and what would be the government's response...keep it coming :)

IMHO they should offer Zack Snyder the directors chair for the Justice League movie. Man of Steel looks fantastic and he has demonstrated he can handle himself with an ensemble cast what with the Watchmen and what not. Anyways, really looking forward to this.

Before, I was looking forward to this and hoping it would be great...now I think I'm just about completely sold. I'm also glad to see Zack Snyder's visual style toned down a little, and I got chills when I saw that shot of Superman's cape billowing from behind. It looks realistic without being the Dark Knight trilogy, which is exactly what Superman needs to be.

I really liked Superman Returns, and Superman 1 & 2. This looks awesome as well. I like how they made this version stand-out and took their own approach to the characters. The time was right for Superman to be rebooted for the big screen, unlike the Amazing Spider-man which was a good film but still to similar to the others to really stand -out.

Well making the world not ready for someone like Superman is about as close as you can get to making it more realistic & a better origin story. It's a better approach to the way movies are made today as compared to the first set of Superman films where people embraced him as a hero from the get go. Bottom line is that was a very good trailer in comparison to the earlier teaser & yes has finally caught my interest.

I love it.

I love it for the same reason I love Ang Lee's Hulk more than any other Hulk. It's about characters, and it doesn't pander. It takes fantastical characters, and gives them realistic reactions. It feels like it has a point, other than to entertain with action sequences.

I just hope

I just hope it still has that fantasy world feel to it....like a comic book spin. The Amazing Spiderman for instance had that great pop to it like a comic book would. Don't care if its dark I just don't want it to be so realistic that it's boring.

Don't worry, we had plenty of boredom in Superman Returns. If it's one thing everyone can say about Snyder, it's his passion of including loads of action.

To those complaining about the 'dark' and 'emo' Superman

This is a story about an alien coming to a foreign planet who has the ability to fly, is indestructible, and can do other wondrous things no other person on this planet has seen; I'm sorry he's not pictured as the savior of humanity in this trailer with the World welcoming him with open arms. It's called putting a realistic spin on a fantasy character. Gosh, you guys will find anything to complain about.

OMG!

Wow! I'm stunned and had the chills/near tears as well, but a trailer is like a picture these days...it could be worth a thousand words. Although I have never been a huge Supes fan and I still hold the original in my mind as the best...I am now very curious to see this...I really do hope it turns out well. And not to go out on too much an emotional note but with as tough a times as the country and the world is having right now as a whole seeing a symbolic figure and event like this can still

Very nice, like the darker look

I am glad it seems they make this a darker more serious superman instead of the boyscout superman with slapstick kent.
I think it makes it more of an emotional ride with some real suspense.

It's a gnarly place and you find inspiration where you can, usually in dark places.

You'll be the first one singing the praises of this masterpiece upon its release.

Not bad but his looks very bleak, like they drained all the colours from this one. Hope Snyder and Nolan dont made this one too grim and gritty. One of the things about Superman, his origin and stories was always that sense of wonder and I cant quite feel it there.

Seems like with this trailer they wanted to show more of how the movie will "Feel" rather than just showing all the cool action. Maybe next trailer we will get some fighting footage. Looks good none the less :)

Considering Amy Adams is 38 and Christopher Meloni is 51, that seems like a little bit of a stretch. I realize Adams can play younger and Meloni can probably play older, but it still doesn't seem quite right to me.

Honestly, I am speechless on what else to say right now.

Keeps Looking Good

Being a general fan of Superman since I got the pajamas w/ footsies as a little tyke, this was always on the top of my must see for 2013. I do like the trailer. It takes a minute to build up to some actual action, but at least it shows that there WILL BE ACTION in the movie (seriously, looking at you Singer). And even when it is not showing the action, it had me interested in how this origin story will play out. Very excited about the movie.

Jonathan Kent: Maybe

Batman is the depressing and lonesome character in a dark and muted world.
Superman is the boy scout character in a bright and affirmative world.

I hope the film knows this difference, because the trailer doesn't so much.

i see a very superman feeling like movie, unfortunately most wont recognize this feeling, since its origin related superman. and represents a more scared insecured Kal-el

post superman is very different from origin superman
once he is superman he is very confident in who he is

definitely the right Superman tone, once he discovers himself and who he is there its the "bright world", but supermans origins is more about self discovery and being unsure with himself and can be seen as "dark"

Ok

The other trailers for this film just plain sucked. This trailer was good and actually looks like there is a story here worth seeing. The very Nolan-esque twist of being rejected puts a whole new spin on Superman. Now there is something to tie it to the Dark Knight. I think Zach Snyder makes good movies. I am skeptical of Man of Steel. But less skeptical after seeing this trailer.
