With one hero franchise ending (“The Dark Knight Rises” is Batman’s farewell), it’s the perfect time to tease on the rebirth of another superhero icon — Warner Bros. has released two teaser trailers their upcoming film Man of Steel. Both trailers are essentially the same just the voiceovers are different (Russel Crowe who plays Jor-El does one, Kevin Costner who plays Jonathan Kent does the other). Neither of them provide details to the plot (which is said to have everything to do with favorite nemesis General Zod), instead they build up the anticipation — readying audiences for the rebirth of their childhood hero. I believe that was the way to go, because even after I swore off Superman after the last reboot attempt (“Superman Returns“) I am excited to check out this Zack Snyder re-imaging. See for yourself by watching the trailers now.
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne and Christopher Meloni.
Man of Steel saves US and UK theaters on June 14, 2013.
