We've heard rumors that there would be a point where we could see multiple 'Star Wars' films in a single year, much like what Marvel is doing with their superhero universe. What would that mean outside of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and its sequels we didn't really know but now we've got a much better idea of Disney's plans. Director Zack Snyder ('Man of Steel') is developing a 'Star Wars' spinoff that would be loosely based on 'The Seven Samurai' but with Jedi.
'Man of Steel' is following the lead of 'Star Trek: Into Darkness'! Both films are set to premiere new footage along with screenings of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' starting December 14 -- for 'Star Trek,' that means nine-ish minutes worth of screen time, and for the new Superman flick, it's a brand-new trailer! But what about that sneak peek Warner Bros. promised us of 'Man of Steel'? Remember that? Well, it turns out that's a new 'Man of Steel' poster, which seems appropriate as 'Star Trek: Into Darkness' just premiered one as well.
'Man of Steel' is premiering its first full-length trailer in just a few weeks time when 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' hits theaters on December 14. And while fans having been waiting ever-so patiently for this new footage of Zack Snyder's vision of the Superman story line, we have to remember that this is just the beginning... that is, 'Man of Steel' is just the beginning.
Just as Christopher Nolan launched his 'Dark Knight' trilogy for Batman, this next Superman movie is also expected to launch a new franchise with new adventures for Henry Cavill. The actor signed on for three Superman movies, including 'Man of Steel,' so now the question is: Will part of Cavill's 'Man of Steel' journey take him to the 'Justice League'?
This holiday season, you'll probably be giving a geek you love a copy of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' which hits shelves on December 4. So, if you're going to be purchasing a copy anyway, you might as well get an "exclusive reward" out of it, right? Like a brand new look at 'Man of Steel,' Zack Snyder's Superman reboot?
Find out how you can help unleash Supes on the world early after the break.
We might be stretching things a little too thin when we say there are some potential 'Man of Steel' spoilers hidden in the upcoming Superman toys... but what if we're not? Work-in-progress commercials for Mattel's latest line of toys, which are said to tie into Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' movie, have leaked online, one of which features the rumored appearance of Black Zero from the comics... but it's not what you think.
Other than the footage of 'Man of Steel' we saw at Comic-Con, and the two teaser trailers we saw featuring the voices of both Clark Kent's human father (Kevin Costner) and his Kryptonian father (Russell Crowe), we've still yet to learn the details about what major trials Superman will be facing in Zack Synder's movie reboot. Thankfully new information has seemingly been revealed from a source we all love so much -- LEGO!
As with 'The Avengers' and 'The Hobbit' promotions, LEGO leaked the names of their primary sets that will be sold as accompaniments to its corresponding films. This year, they revealed what can be expected from their 'Man of Steel' sets and may have, perhaps unknowingly, hinted at the possibility of another villain for Superman to face other than Zod.
Though the film isn't due out until June 14, 2013, that doesn't mean we won't get a steady stream of promotional material for Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' until it comes out. It's only fair: they've been shooting since August of 2011 and, with shooting scheduled to finish in February, they should be in post-production now. It's been quiet on the 'Man of Steel' front but now we have a new image from the film - a banner showing off the new Superman's shield.
