Man of Steel trailer is stunning
I am one who talks about the virtues of Superman Returns (Filmstalker review) and how good it was, yes there were faults in the latter half particularly with the child thread but overall it was a great return to Superman, we can't knock it for that.
Neither can we compare it to Man of Steel which looks like it is genuinely going back to the beginning and reworking the story from scratch. You hear that a lot about re-whatevers, but with Man of Steel and this new trailer it definitely looks to be the case.
Once more with this new Man of Steel trailer we also see the same sort of model for the film and the character that we did with Batman through Christopher Nolan, we're seeing a film that's heavy on the emotion and building a human character first and foremost, in fact Superman doesn't really appear till late on in the trailer and then it's all kept low key with the voiceover still strong on the human side of the story.
It is interesting that it's all about acceptance in the trailer and that the poster we saw recently has Superman in handcuffs with soldiers around him, the same ones that we see at the end of the trailer perhaps just as he voices his concern over whether he will be accepted or not.
That could also be taken as a reference to the film itself, will it be accepted as the new Superman film, the character and indeed the actor as the new Superman? From the looks of this trailer Nolan has passed on a lot of positive learning and Zack Snyder has steered the film in a strong direction as well as David Goyer's script and story.
Let's get straight to that trailer through TrailerAddict and see what you think of the new Superman in Man of Steel:
