Before you blurt, “Not another superhero movie!” just wait… from the looks of the two latest clips for this summer’s Man of Steel, this is not just any old superhero flick.
Man of Steel, which will revive the Superman film franchise, stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, Superman’s secret identity. Under Zack Snyder’s direction, the film allows Clark Kent to unveiling his exterrestrial history as members of his race threatening to invade earth. The future of mankind is put into jeopardy and it’s up to Superman to come to the rescue.
In the first clip of the action-packed film, which you can watch above, we get a look at Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Clark Kent’s love interest. While at work at the Daily Planet newspaper, Lois’ Editor-in-Chief Perry White (Laurence Fishburne) derides her for pursuing a story that she was warned to back off from reporting:
Now we’re in for quite the treat when we get the chance to see Superman in all his glory: hair swept back, slick and gelled as he sits across from Lois Lane. And oh yeah, he’s handcuffed. Lois questions Superman about what the “S” on his tight, abs-snugging costume stands for. Superman mushily says in his sexy, grizzle tone “In my world, it means ‘hope,'” which leaves Louis with a gleeful grin. But then just as the clip cuts off, Lois starts to suggest his “S” could stand for “Superman.” Once again, we’re left wanting more.
