Following on from last night’s epic new TV spot, we’ve now got two more brilliant things to share from Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.
The Superman reboot movie will be hitting theatres in just over a month, and all we’ve seen from the film so far has us immensely excited.
One of the many things that we’re looking forward to is the film’s score, composed by none other than Hans Zimmer himself, one of the greatest (and most prolific) composers in the industry. And so naturally, when we get to preview a full track from Zimmer’s Man of Steel score, entitled ‘An Ideal of Hope’, revealed through a QR code on the new poster, we can’t help but share it.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something 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 (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), 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.
Henry Cavill takes the lead here as Kal-El / Clark Kent / Superman. And he’s joined by a brilliant cast, led by Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Richard Schiff, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, and Laurence Fishburne.
Snyder is directing from a script penned by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Trilogy), who co-wrote the story with frequent collaborator Christopher Nolan.
Man of Steel will be released in 2D, 3D, IMAX, and IMAX 3D on June 14th in the US and UK, and that is definitely a release date you’ll want to commit to memory. This is going to be incredible.
