movie news: Man of Steel teaser trailers released3 Comments
In case you haven’t had enough of the dark and troubled superheroes, here comes another. Yes, it’s the latest Superman reboot, the Man of Steel.
If you’ve read my review of The Dark Knight Rises you’ll know that, while I enjoyed the film, I’m not a massive fan of the broody, moody and downright gloomy superheroes. I like my superheroes bright and fun…
… so the fact that Christopher Nolan is heavily involved in this makes me a little apprehensive about what to expect from the superest of superheroes, Superman.
Of course, I’m jumping the gun a little. Just because Christopher Nolan is story writer and producer on this, doesn’t mean it’ll necessarily follow his style. Zack Snyder is helming it and though his films do tend to err on the side of seriousness over fun, he has his own inimitable style. 300 and Watchman were good fun and hopfully this will be too.
It’s not out till next year so there isn’t much known about it at the moment, aside from the cast. Superman will be played by Henry Cavill, last seen in the terribly tiresome The Cold Light of Day, Russell Crowe plays Jor-El, Amy Adams covers off Lois Lane and the villains are represented by Michael Shannon as General Zod and Antje Traue as Faora. Since it’s a reboot I’m kind of assuming it’s re-telling of the origin story… but I could be wrong there.
Anyway, here’s the teaser trailers, which debuted before showings of The Dark Knight Rises this weekend. Let me know what you think.
