This new action-packed trailer for MAN OF STEEL stands for hope

1 min read


If there’s one thing that Superman movies have really failed to do, unless they’re one of the superb animated ones, it’s to capture an action scene faithfully on the big screen. The big blue boy scout has his fair share of opponents that can give him a run for his crystals, but the big screen has an annoying tendency to stick with characters that are decidedly easier to squish. Take over the world supply of coffee. Superman 3, you bring shame and disappointment to the family.

Here’s the latest trailer then for Man Of Steel, which keeps the action content in your face, with a dash of hope as well.

Compared to previous trailers, this is the money-shot of marketing teasers. Previous videos were a lot more sedated, calmer and only contained hints of the action to come. But this one? Not only does it baysplode, it does so in micro-seconds, teasing audiences even further.

And yet, there’s still a lot of heart here. Dual fatherly themes from Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe, a light-hearted conversation with Amy Adam’s Lois Lane creeps in as well. But most importantly, just listen to that soundtrack from Hans Zimmer. It’s magnificent, and I hope that the entire movie follows a similar approach to that bit of audio.

While merely suggesting that John Williams original score may have finally been beaten will get me lynched by an orchestra of fanboys, I’ll gladly admit that this particular Superman theme can proudly stand tall next to it. It’s fantastic. It’s Zimmeriffic.

In June, you won’t just believe that a man can fly. You’ll believe that he can play ping pong in the sky with the face of an escaped phantom zone prisoner as well.

    I don’t enjoy most DC characters, and Superman is near the top of my least favourite Super Heroes that are well known. But this movie has me more excited than Kickass2 and Thor2 have. God this looks good.

    I really want them to use the original Superman theme. It won’t be the same without it.

      I understand that they’re really trying for a fresh approach, but yeah, I’m really going to miss it. And while I love Hans Zimmer to bits, and it sounds like he’s doing amazing work here, if I had to personally choose somebody to follow on from John WIlliams’ legendary score, I would have given it to Michael Giacchino. He has more of a knack for that retro sound that works so well with Superman.

    I just realized that both Kal-El’s dads are Robin Hood.
