A new trailer for Man of Steel has hit faster than a speeding bullet. Next summer's big screen return of the baddie-beating blue bomber who can't help being mistaken for either a bird or plane appears even more intense and drama-packed than we thought, which is always a good thing.
Director, Zack Snyder seemed to have no other choice than to take us through the motions of the many-times-told origin story of the super-powered space orphan who grew up on Earth in the sparsely-populated Smallville. However, the conflict and pure pathos that's being exuded by Henry Cavill as the new Clark Kent/Superman is quite in line with the tone of superhero films one would expect to find in a post-Nolan-Batman kind of world.
While the set of teaser trailers we got back at Comic-Con in July seemed to hint a film more centered around the struggles of young Kent coming to terms with his powers and what place he has in the world, this trailer sets that into the broader context. -- The broader context of becoming a world class yellow-sun-soaked ass beater!
