Man of Steel Trailer: Superman Is Super-Unsure Who He Is

Man of Steel is directed by Zack Snyder, which is apparent by the richness of the color palette; however, the trailer screams "Christopher Nolan," who is one of the producers. The quick cutting of voiceover and emotionally fraught shots, over angelic singing, is very reminiscent of the Dark Knight Rises trailer in which the little boy sings the national anthem. The trailer is heavy on the "who am I?" angle, but once Superman puts his fist down on the snow to prepare to fly, stuff gets really real, really fast. It's hard to tell what's exactly happening amongst all the carnage, but we are sure that Kevin Costner seems like a good dad, Michael Shannon looks weird, and at one point Superman is just standing there on fire, like it's no big woop. Man of Steel is set to premiere on June 14, 2013, when we’ll hopefully learn what Superman's beard feels like.
