Henry Cavill and Michael Shannon face off in a plot revealing Man of Steel trailer
I almost called this the “final” MAN OF STEEL trailer, but given how many trailers, TV spots, posters and images we’ve gotten so far, I doubt this is the last trailer we’ll get for the film. We’re just over three weeks away and the marketing onslaught is almost too much to bare. But this new trailer does give us some actual plot details from the film as opposed to a grand voice over and epic music. It seems that Clark Kent is pushed into becoming Superman by General Zod, who basically wages war on earth. You’ll have to watch the trailer for yourself, but I’m not sure how people are going to react to this new strategy. Instead of the plot driven, grandiose trailers we’ve gotten, this one focuses on the battles and action, which is both good and bad. It’s good because it alleviates some fears that the film wouldn’t have enough action, but it’s bad because I wasn’t impressed with anything I saw. Was Lois Lane being put into a space suit? The trailer isn’t even two minutes long, so we shouldn’t jump to any conclusions and besides, we only have about three weeks before we can all sit back and decide if Zack Snyder was the right choice for Superman.
