Man of Steel
What do 'Man of Steel' and 'Pacific Rim' have in common? Well, they're both two of the most anticipated films of the summer, they're both geek bait of the highest order, they're both directed by extremely talented directors with unique visual styles and they're both from Warner Bros., who may very well come out of this season as the biggest winner in Hollywood. New action-packed TV-spots from both films do nothing to temper our excitement.
'Man of Steel' is only weeks away and a new TV spot has arrived, reminding us that this looks like the comic book movie to beat this summer. Although we've seen some of this footage before, this spot offers us a glimpse at some new stuff, much of which will be of utmost interest to Superman fans.
Since the massive success of Marvel's 'The Avengers,' everyone has wondered when Warner Bros. and DC Comics would get their act together and start teaming up their roster of superheroes on the big screen. Although the long-in-the-works 'Justice League' movie has started and stalled on numerous occasions, 'Man of Steel' star Henry Cavill was recently asked about another possibility. How about a Batman/Superman movie?
While struggling to discover his true identity and purpose, Clark Kent must become the hero known as “Superman” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
If you're excited for 'Man of Steel' (and how can you not be), you're going to want to see this. It's the official 'Man of Steel' prequel that ties directly in to the upcoming movie. With a story by 'Man of Steel' writer David Goyer and director Zack Snyder, this doesn't feature much Superman but it does include a somewhat surprising lead character: Supergirl. Is this the start of a larger 'Man of Steel' universe? What hints does this hold for the movie? Let's find out!
Two new posters for next month's 'Man of Steel' have crashed on earth (not including the one we previously revealed the other day of Jor-El), showing us the film's hero and villain in all their glowering glory. Of course, we're talking about Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod (Michael Shannon).
