Man of Steel Teaser Trailer 1 + 2

DC Comics releases two teaser trailers for Man of Steel, a reboot film of the Superman film series.

“You’re not just anyone. One day, you’re gonna have to make a choice. You have decide what kind of man you want to grow up to be. Whoever that man is, good character or bad, is gonna change the world.”

In both trailers, we see the same images: Superman/Kal-El/Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) in search of himself, hitchhiking into the wilderness, working on a fishing vessel, and then (as a child) crafting a makeshift cape as he stands in the wind blowing across the Kansas farmland.

The difference between both trailers is that they include different voice-overs from the main protagonist’s two fathers, Kryptonian biological father Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and Kansas farmer and adoptive dad Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner). The narration from the two men offers sharply different points of view: one based in fate (Jor-El), another based in choice (J. Kent).

“You will give the people an ideal to strive towards. They’ll race behind you, they will stumble. They will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.”

The cast includes Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Ayelet Zurer (replacing Julia Ormond as Superman’s biological mother), Harry Lennix, Antje Traue, Richard Schiff, Christopher Meloni, and Michaael Shannon as General Zod.

Man of Steel is directed by Zack Snyder, who also developed the film along with Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer. The film is set to premiere on June 14, 2013.
