Man of Steel: What we’ve learned from the new trailer
The second official trailer for Zack Snyder’s ‘Superman’ reboot has finally hit the fan, and it couldn’t come soon enough. Comic book geeks and movie nerds alike have eagerly been awaiting its release since the tantalizing poster first revealed the Metropolis Marvel in handcuffs. Now that it’s finally here, what have we learned, if anything?
Well, for starters, this shiny, new Superman looks to be highly influenced by Christoper Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy. Not surprising, seeing is how it is, in fact, produced by Nolan. Not only that, but Nolan’s trilogy single-handedly (triple-handedly?) re-imagined superhero movies by digging deeper into Batman’s origin and grounding his story. Not only does this ‘Superman’ appear more somber, but the majority of the trailer centers around Clark Kent as a kid and the adversities he faces growing up. This brings an interesting twist to the character and one never before explored in film, at least to this extent.
We also learned a bit more about the actual story. Towards the latter half of the trailer we see what appear to be other other super beings; one of which, wears a beard similar to that of General Zod’s. Could these be the few surviving Kryptonians who have come to conqueror the Earth as it was in Superman II? This is all just speculation on my part, but it’s probably a safe conclusion to draw. Watch it for yourself and draw your own conclusions!
Man of Steel has a scheduled release date of June 14, 2013
