'Man of Steel' Full Trailer
Now I grant you, this posting is a few days late, but that is what happens during finals time, things get a bit crazy and hectic and little wacky. Regardless, I am here now to dialogue about the full trailer for Warner Bros. and DC Comics new summer release, 'Man of Steel'. Ok, lets a go!
To start out, I really like that we get a full glimpse of Krypton, and Russel Crowe and Ayelet Zurer as Jor-El and Lara. They both look amazing in full makeup and costume, and the scenery for Krypton is much cooler and more alien looking than, dare I say, the Krypton of the classic Christopher Reeves film. Yes, I went there. Maybe it's because as a writer I think a Krypton like this is way cooler to envision than a ice world. But hey, that's just me.
The rest of the trailer, showing Clark's young life, his search for who he is, then full coming into his own as Superman, it is really quite fantastic. And I love the hinting's we get at the true scope of his powers, they are like tiny tasty tidbits of awesome. And the few bit's where we see Michael Shannon as General Zod, oh man oh man that is some good stuff I tell you what.
All in all, I'm very excited for this film, and for all the great films coming out this summer. Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Great Gatsby. As man who loves all things comic book based, as well as literature, I look forward to each of these films with great anticipation. But for now I must get back to work, finals are next week, and I have lots to do.
For all who have yet to see the full trailer, here it is! Enjoy and keep those calendars marked, those tickets pre-ordered and if you are dressing up in costume for the event, keep the costumes clean, neat and wrinkle free!
