Man of Steel Trailer 2

An alien infant is raised on Earth, and grows up with superhuman abilities. He sets out to use these abilities to guard his adopted world.

This trailer has heightened my hopes for this film and the Superman franchise in general. WB has proven they can do something great with comic adaptations with the Dark Knight trilogy, but they have also proven they can still miss the mark with films like Green Lantern (2011).   I think Zack Snyder is capable of directing an entertaining Superman flick. In my opinion we’ve never had a great Superman movie. The Donner films were campy light-hearted fare but are starting to show their age. Then you have Brian Singer’s poor attempt to shoe horn his own chapter into Donner’s continuity (if you can even call it that). To this day, I’ve never been able to sit through an entire viewing of Superman Returns (2005)

To be honest, this trailer gives me wood. This seems to be an earnest attempt to make a solid Superman film with some heart and suspense. The trailer is well made, beautiful to gaze upon, and the music gives me goosebumps; which is more of a reaction than I ever got from the Donner films. Henry Cavill (Stardust, 2007) looks damn good in the blue and red; his facial expressions showcase the morality that must flow through Superman’s Kryptonian brain.

There is a lot riding on Man of Steel, I think this will be the blockbuster that proves DC is ready to play on the same playground as Marvel’s Avengers characters. I optimistically await this summer 2013 release.
