Warner Bros. has released a brand new TV spot recently as part of their ongoing marketing campaign for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel. This one showcases more of the U.S. military than in other spots and trailers including one Captain that thinks Superman is “kinda hot.” Now, I didn’t get much sleep last night so my eyes may be deceiving me, but is that captain Erica Durance from Smallville?? If it is, then that’s one great cameo! Check it out and tell me if I’m right or wrong.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
Man of Steel is being directed by Zack Snyder, produced by Christopher Nolan, and stars Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Amy Adams, Christopher Meloni, Lawrence Fishburne, with Russell Crowe and Michael Shannon. It is set to release in theaters on June 14th in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.
