It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… another new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, which combines this staticky message from General Zod with the darker tone, battle scenes, and shots of Henry Cavill’s Bearded Super-Fisherman we’ve seen in other spots. All of it, naturally, is set to Hans Zimmer’s pounding score. The fate of our planet rests on you watching this video:
Tag: Superman (11-20 of 34)
Henry Cavill had nearly 75 years of Superman comics to consider before putting on the red cape, but four books in particular from the character’s recent history helped him shape Man of Steel. READ FULL STORY
Faster than a speeding bullet?
That pretty much sums up a few of the new images we see in the latest Man of Steel trailer. Some of the scenes are impossible to figure out without a bit more context, but Entertainment Weekly has some clues that might help explain a few of the more inexplicable shots.
A close study also reveals that director Zack Snyder has slipped in a reference to another major Superman villain.
Here’s a deeper look at what’s hidden in the trailer: READ FULL STORY
Man of Steel won’t be hurting for an audience when the latest cinematic incarnation of Superman swoops into theaters next summer. The casting of Henry Cavill (The Tudors, The Immortals) has been met with great enthusiasm from fanboys, media, and pretty much everyone with working eyeballs. The supporting players ooze quality and clout: Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne. That’s an all-star team-up of acting Avengers right there. Behind the camera, a marketable, geek-cool, movie-smart brain trust: producer Christopher Nolan, screenwriter David Goyer, director Zack Snyder. With talent like this above and below the line, there’s little doubt people will be buying tickets…
But will they buy Superman himself?
The man who fights for truth, justice, and the American way — a criminal? That’s the provocative suggestion in the newest poster for Man of Steel, which hit the web on Monday. It features Henry Cavill as Superman, flanked by U.S. soldiers, his wrists bound together in handcuffs that you know he could accidentally snap in half if he so much as got the hiccups.

Almost 75 years after Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created Superman, the battle for ownership of the Last Son of Krypton has become an expensive and much-disputed industry unto itself. Four years ago, Siegel’s heirs won a major victory when a judge granted them half of the Superman copyright, at least regarding how Superman appeared in Action Comics #1. As reported by the LA Times, however, Shuster’s heirs have not been so lucky: Yesterday, a federal judge ruled that the family of the co-creator could not reclaim a similar 50% stake in the copyright.

The Project: Man of Steel
The Panel: Henry Cavill, director Zack Snyder. Moderated by Chris Hardwick.
Footage Screened: Before the footage began, Snyder noted that a teaser trailer will be playing in front of The Dark Knight Rises next weekend, but he would be screening a longer version just for Comic-Con. His operating thesis: Making people feel like they could put themselves in Superman’s shoes, instead of seeing him as “this kind of big blue boy scout up on a throne.” READ FULL STORY
Thankfully, they sometimes turn up in animation, such as DC Comics upcoming Superman vs. The Elite, a PG-13 rated adaptation of a 2001 comic tale in which the Man of Steel finds himself fighting alongside — and then against — a quartet of young superpowered upstarts who are famous not just for stopping their foes, but killing them.
In EW’s exclusive clip from the direct-to-video film, out tomorrow, we see Kal-El encountering this team of rivals for the first time. As testament to the fact that this isn’t just a kiddie cartoon, one of them immediately puts the moves on ol’ Supes — who looks like he just swallowed some kryptonite. READ FULL STORY
It’s been nearly eight months since we’ve seen or heard anything official from Man of Steel, the Superman reboot produced by Christopher Nolan and directed by Zack Snyder. Henry Cavill looked all buff and brawny in our first look at his sleek, textured Superman costume, which featured a far larger chest plate for the superhero than the one on Brandon Routh’s pecs in 2006′s Superman Returns.
That strapping sensibility continues with the official Man of Steel logo, which Warner Bros. posted tonight to the movie’s Facebook page. Along with that more robustly sized “S” — usually considered to be the family crest of Superman’s Kryptonian father, Jor-El (Russell Crowe) — there are some finely etched details within the logo that make the emblem feel even more like it’s connected to a long-lost culture.
