It’s been a long wait, to get a peek under Man of Steel‘s cape. Born from a tightly-guarded storyline crafted by Dark Knight Trilogy architects Christopher and Jonathan Nolan and David S. Goyer - and crafted by the hand of visionary director Zack Snyder (300), the Superman reboot has been considered to either be the best of both worlds (in terms of filmmaking), or an experiment that could blow up in DC Comics and Warner Bros.’ faces.
Teaser trailers have revealed that this modernized interpretation of the Superman origin and mythos will include some deep, probing questions about what it is to live as a god-like orphan on an alien world; however, we’ve seen little to no action from this Superhero blockbuster. Today’s Man of Steel trailer is here to put that complaint to rest, for good.
It’s hard to see the footage here and not give Snyder props; more so than his predecessors – like Richard Donner and Bryan Singer – Snyder has captured the aesthetic and concept of super powers in action, according to “realistic” standards. That is to say: the actual physics of Superman’s powers is something we can definitely feel – which is going to make for an awesome experience in the theater. Blockbuster superhero flick, indeed.
