Man-of-Steel-BannerLast night brought with it an awesome new ‘Soldier of Steel’ TV spot for Zack Snyder’s immensely anticipated blockbuster, Man of Steel, which will see Snyder relaunching the Superman franchise, which could in turn become the starting point for the DC Cinematic Universe.

Needless to say, the film has an immeasurably enormous level of potential going for it, and all that we’ve seen so far promises to live up to the expectations, and more.

Following on from last night’s new footage, Warner Bros. have debuted an awesome new UK TV spot, teasing some of the amazing and explosive sequences we have coming our way next month.

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 eponymous superhero, Clark Kent / Superman. And he stars alongside an impeccable 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. If you hadn’t already, you’d better believe you should commit that release date to memory, because this is going to be incredible. The blockbuster event of the year.
