Man of Steel Teaser Trailer

Those of you that have seen The Dark Knight Rises might have got a first look at Warner Bros’ Man of Steel, as the first teaser trailer to the film was launched this weekend. The teaser has now made its way online.

The Superman reboot is directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan. Starring Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Kal-El, he finds himself transported from the planet Krypton to Earth. Taken in by adoptive parents Jonathan (Kevin Costner), and Martha Kent (Diane Lane), Clark soon discovers that having super powers means making difficult decisions, particularly when the Earth comes under attack.

Interestingly there are two variations of the teaser trailer, both with different narrators. The US version features Kevin Costner as Johnathan Kent talking over the footage. The UK (international) version features Russell Crowe as Superman’s Kryptonian father Jor-El narrating. Both are giving the hero some words of wisdom. This is also quite a gentle yet moody teaser trailer. Compared to the one that was shown at the San Diego Comic-Con, which featured a lot more action and reduced someone to tears, this one almost makes the film come across as an emotional drama rather than a summer blockbuster. Possibly hinting that Snyder is going in a different direction with this reboot. Press play below, or if you prefer, Apple HD downloads are available by clicking here.
