The enigmatic trailer for Man of Steel looks very promising as a debut for the re-launch of the franchise. Beautifully shot by Amir Mokri (Transformers Dark of The Moon), it seems a lifetime away from all previous Superman films. British actor Henry Cavill (Immortals, The Tudors) plays the titular hero and Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) Directs.
This promises to be a fresh start for the beleaguered franchise, and one would expect nothing less from a script by David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Blade) and produced by Christopher Nolan. With this combination we should feel like we’re in safe hands. The film also stars Amy Adams (The Fighter, The Master) as Clarke Kent’s famous beau Lois Lane. The cast list also includes Laurence Fishbourne, Michael Shannon, and Russell Crowe playing Superman’s paternal father Jor-El. A role previously played by Marlon Brando. I’m really interested to see how this film turns out hope it lives up to expectations.
Man of Steel hits UK cinemas from 14th June 2013
