Slick, Dramatic, Impressive: New Man Of Steel Trailer Hits The Mark For Superman Fans

The new Man of Steel trailer has been released and we’ve got to say, we’re pretty impressed here at Contactmusic.

It’s looking like a pretty slick, but emotive update of the Superman story, with some tense dramatic scenes between a young Clark Kent and his father (Kevin Costner). Costner tells his son he has to “keep this side of yourself secret,” after he rescues a group of schoolchildren from a drowning school bus.

“What was I supposed to do, let them die?” asks the young Clark. After a dramatic pause, his father’s response comes: “Maybe.” The trailer shows a fairly even mix of a retrospective look back at Superman’s childhood and, from the point that we hear Costner’s voice saying “you have to decide what kind of man you want to be Clark,” a focus on his life as a super-hero. It will of course be interesting to see how the film itself is weighted in terms of drama and action.

So far, the response to the trailer has been pretty positive; it’s hard not to be taken in by the steely grey scenes, punctuated with flames and explosions and, of course, the flash of Superman’s red cape, draped around Henry Cavill’s shoulders. Collider.com’s Steve Weintraub was particularly enthused by the appearance of the trailer, saying “everything I’ve seen thus far on the Man of Steel tells me Snyder has crafted a great Superman film that will deliver everything the fans want and more.” Oh… and Amy Adams fans needn’t worry – you’ll get a glimpse of your favorite starlet as Lois Lane, as well.
