It’s a bird, it’s a plane! No, it’s the modern day Superman to the rescue. “Man of Steel” trailers reveal a brand new Superman, with a darker, more mysterious superhero side.
If you’ve been at Comic-Con this July it’s likely you heard director Zachary Snyder and actor Henry Cahill talking about Christopher Nolan’s “Man of Steel”. Set to premiere June 14, 2013, the new Christopher Nolan film is an amazing revamp of the classic Superman comic story. And with the “Man of Steel” trailer just released we’ve got goose bumps just thinking about this brand new Superman we’re going to see next year.
Everybody who’s a fan of the real Superman character worries they might never see a good movie featuring their favorite superhero. For the most part, fans are worried Christopher Nolan might pervert Superman’s story following the lines of hi tech mystery Batman we just got to see in “Dark Knight Rises”.
Obviously it’s a Hollywood movie any way you look at it. But at least the new Superman we caught glimpses of in the two “Man of Steel” trailers looks more like a modern day superhero than ever before. Plus, we might just get to see that darker side of Superman most often other movies failed to highlight.
Both “Man of Steel” trailers feature the same footage, without giving in too much about the action.
One of the “Man of Steel” trailers features Kevin Costner giving fatherly advice to the child that will grow up to become Superman. In the movie, Costner plays adoptive father Jonathan Kent.
“You’re not just anyone. One day you’re going to have to make a choice” says Kevin Costner ,“you have to decided what kind of man you wanna grow up to become”. “Whoever that man is – good character or bad – he’s going to change the world” says Kevin Costner to his adoptive son.
The other “Man of Steel” trailer features fatherly advice from Russell Crowe, who plays Jor-El, Superman’s biological father. Russell Crowe narrates: “You will give the people an ideal to strive towards. They will rest behind you, they will stumble; they will fall. But in the time, they will join you in the sun”. Russell concludes his short piece of fortune telling: “In time, you will help them accomplish wonders”.
