If you saw The Dark Knight Rises in theatres, you probably saw one of two versions of a teaser trailer for next summer's new Superman film, Man of Steel. Today, Warner Bros. has released the first full-length trailer, and if this doesn't have Christopher Nolan's fingerprints all over it, I don't know what does. Check it out after the jump and we'll talk about it after you watch it:
I have to admit, when I first watched this this morning I got chills because of the imagery, the score, and the exchange between young Clark and his father, "What was I supposed to do? Let them die?" ".....maybe."
I'm loving the direction this film looks like it's going to be taken, and while I still think Matt Bomer would have been a great choice to play Superman/Clark Kent, I'm quickly liking the way Henry Cavill looks and sounds in the role. I'm also excited because every single actor they've cast in a main role sounded good on paper and looks to be even better on screen.
What do you think of this first trailer, readers? Does it look too serious for a Superman movie for your tastes? Or are you glad Christopher Nolan produced it, with his brother Jonathan writing it, to give it that Dark Knight Trilogy feel?
Man of Steel hits theatres on June 14th, 2013.
