Man of Steel has already been using its promotional super-breath to send various trailers and promos flying our way. However, the latest TV spot officially released online by Warner breaks the trend, since it arrives filled with mostly new footage of next month's big-screen return of The Blue Bomber starring Henry Cavill.
While one should hardly call it a significant game-changer as far as perception of the film goes, this brief 33 second spot manages to cram enough eye-popping action to pack big enough of a wallop to send Michael Shannon's General Zod and his crew of Kryptonian convicts back to the lonely confines of The Phantom Zone where their megalomaniacal musings will go mostly unnoticed amongst the apparent abyss.
The clip starts with foreboding lines by Laurence Fishburne's Daily Planet publisher, Perry White anticipating a not-so-warm welcome from the hard-to-humble human race of a virtual god. After that, a mind-blowing montage of madness with the wise voice of Kevin Costner's Jonathan Kent takes us through some of the intense obstacles that the space-orphan-turned-superhero will have to endure in order to come to terms with his true self. (A goal that hipsters merely think they can accomplish by backpacking through Europe.)
Man of Steel never accepts the option of "not" when it hits theaters on June 14.
