Superman returns (again) in a new movie from Zack Snyder with the Man of Steel being played by British actor Henry Cavill.
This film takes the Kryptonian right back to the beginning with a new origin story which seems reasonable given the last cinematic origin was way back in 1978. I mean we all know the origin of Superman but then again, everyone knows the origins of Spider-Man and there will probably be another reboot of that in the next decade.
It’s a reasonably odd little teaser, evoking art house more than Zack Snyder’s usual music video on acid visual approach. It may be something to do with producer Christopher Nolan and an attempt to emulate a Batman Begins approach to the Superman mythos.
Anyway, the movie promises lots of action including boats, hitch hiking and looking at family photos. There are two versions of this trailer one with a voice over from Kevin Costner’s Jonathan Kent and the other from Russell Crow’s Jor El. It’s all about dual identity and fatherhood and destiny or something.
Does the Man of Steel have a place amongst 21st century heroes? Share your thoughts below. Or don’t. Either way the world will keep turning.
