Hot on the heels of the final Star Trek Into Darkness trailer comes a brand new look at the Zack Snyder-directed, Christopher Nolan-produced Man of Steel, and it absolutely blows away every other blockbuster trailer in recent memory. This sensational three-minute preview promises a bold and epic new interpretation of the Superman mythology — one with spectacular action, a stellar cast all delivering (including some tantalising glimpses of a manic Michael Shannon as General Zod), a wondrous score (that sounds nothing like Hans Zimmer’s work on The Dark Knight series), and perhaps most importantly, an emotionally resonant story rooted in character and credible reality. It’s hard to imagine a Zack Snyder film being as good as this looks, so I’m trying my best to temper my expectations, but this is easily the best trailer of the year so far and Man of Steel is fast becoming one of the most anticipated film events of 2013.
Man of Steel opens in theatres everywhere on June 14. Watch the latest trailer below.
