Man of Steel

There are some big things riding on the success of ‘Man of Steel’. Word going around town is that this will make or break the progress on ‘Justice League’. Also, the last time the character leaped onto the silver screen in a single bound, it wasn’t really looked upon favorably by its audience. Now, with the aid of Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder, WB is hoping to prove that they could make a great superhero movie without Bruce Wayne getting involved.

One way that the studio is looking to get butts into seats for their new Superman flick is to make the movie extremely accessible to the non-comic book fan audience. That’s why in their latest spots, they pair up awesome new footage with familiar faces like Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, and Amy Adams in the spotlight alongside our Kryptonian hero as played by Henry Cavill. They’re also trying to play up this outsider story looking for a place to fit in, which moviegoers totally eat up. You can check out the two latest spots below:

Personally, I don’t relate too much with an almighty, invulnerable alien with a cape whose secret identity is hidden by a pair of glasses, so I don’t really buy into the whole Superman fanfare. However, these new promos look great. I may not be a fan of Superman, but I do appreciate good filmmaking, so I’ll give credit where credit is due.

For more information on the movie, here’s the official synopsis:

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha and Jonathan Kent, Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

‘Man of Steel’ starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne, Russell Crowe, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, and Michael Kelly debuts in theaters on June 14, 2013.
