June has arrived, and with it will come some of the biggest films of the year. Most notable of them all is of course Zack Snyder’s immensely anticipated Man of Steel, which is set to reboot the Superman franchise for (hopefully) years to come.
Warner Bros. have been doing a brilliant job of pushing the movie in recent months, and every little thing we’ve seen has made the wait simultaneously that much more unbearable and exciting.
The latest TV spot gave us another awesome look at Snyder’s blockbuster, and now Warner Bros. have released another epic thirty-second preview, featuring a wealth of explosive action balanced with dramatic tension that we can expect in just under two weeks’ time.
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 the Man of Steel himself, Clark Kent / Kal-El / Superman. And he is joined by an all-star 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 Christopher Nolan.
Man of Steel will be released in 2D, 3D, IMAX, and IMAX 3D on June 14th in the US and UK. Its release date is very much fast approaching, and we cannot wait to see how things unfold next weekend. This is destined to be epic.
