'Man of Steel'-ers beware of potential spoilers ahead...
Amidst all of the Superman hype for Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot, hitting theaters June 14, Warner Bros. unleashed a breathtaking trailer a while back that revealed a Lex Luthor Easter Egg, foreshadowing a possible appearance from the Man of Steel's famed rival down the road. But now it looks like we'll get to see another MAJOR DC character teased in 'Man of Steel'... and this one's a superhero.
Everything we've heard about 'Man of Steel' suggests that it will be one of the films to beat this summer, an epic superhero adventure unlike anything else coming out this year. So why isn't the marketing selling that movie? A new banner for the highly anticipated film has arrived and it's just more of the same.
The new 'Man of Steel' poster has dropped faster than a speeding bullet -- eh, you get the idea -- to keep our adrenaline going for the June theatrical debut and frankly...we're thrilled! Seriously, we've seen countless one-sheets for 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' 'Pacific Rim' and the like, so it's about time we saw more from Zack Snyder's Superman reboot.
Who can forget last summer, when the might Marvel vs. DC war raged on throughout the summer as fanboys feverishly debated whether 'The Avengers' or 'The Dark Knight Rises' was better. We're not sure that was fully settled but the Marvel vs. DC battle lied mostly dormant in the past few months. That is, until now, when 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder threw down the gauntlet with some harsh words for his competitors at Marvel. Find out what he said and let us know if you agree.
'Man of Steel' is a great movie if the early buzz is to be believed. In fact, 'Man of Steel' looks so good that it's inspiring greatness in others. Namely, this fanmade 'Man of Steel' title sequence. It has nothing to do with Zack Snyder's movie but it looks so good you'd swear it actually does. This you gotta see.
