The people who watched The Dark Knight Rises last weekend were treated to the first ever trailer for Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel. The trailer seems to uphold the studio’s promise that the new Superman movie will have more depth and will be darker than previous Superman films, seeing as to how the trailer seems more akin to a mood piece than a comic book superhero adaptation.
The short teaser features scenes of Clark Kent as a child interspersed with scenes of him as a young adult, set to an ominous score and a voiceover of Jonathan Kent (played by Kevin Costner) saying ‘You’re not just anyone. One day, you’re gonna have to make a choice. You have to decide what kind of man you want to grow up to be.’ The teaser ends with a wide-angle shot of the sky as Superman flies upward at great speed.
We still didn’t get to see a clear shot of Superman in action, let’s just hope it doesn’t turn out like the Ang Lee ‘Hulk’.
