New ‘Man of Steel’ Trailer Filled with Big Questions, Bigger Explosions

When a movie can manage provocative inqueries about the meaning of life and the nature of humankind, all the while blowing a whole ton of sh** up in really cool ways, you’ve got yourself a surefire winner. Director Zack Snyder seems to have put to rest any dwindling reservations we had left about his forthcoming Superman movie Man of Steel with a new trailer, debuted by Warner Bros. at CinemaCon.

The three-minute-long video spans the duration of our caped hero’s life, introducing baby Kal-El on an apocalyptic Krypton, meeting a bewildered Clark Kent grappling with his unique identity, and concluding with the myserious stranger charged with the upholding of truth, justice, and the American way: Superman. While the trailer does indeed take a good deal of time delving deep into the anchored psyche of Henry Cavill’s high-flying character, with a take on the DC staple that feels fascinatingly both grounded in tradition and wholly fresh, it hardly skimps on the action, employing a vengeful Zod (Michael Shannon) and his explosive army to showcase the threat against the impenetrable alien.

Check out the trailer below, and catch Man of Steel in theaters June 14.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
