The latest TV spots certainly do a good job of showing just how high the stakes are in “Man of Steel.” There must be some serious shit going down if Superman has to be called to the rescue, that’s for certain. But it’s not just about what Superman does; it’s about what he represents to everyone else in the world. His father, played by Russell Crowe, explains to him what that “S” on his chest really means: it’s a symbol of hope. Will Superman defeat General Zod in time and save the world? You can find out on June 14th.
If you’re having trouble waiting until then, you can kill some time with Metropolis Mayhem, an online video game where you get to fly around Metropolis, using heat vision to destroy objects. It’s no “Superman 64,” but hey, you can make him collide into incoming traffic so that’s pretty fun. Be sure to check that out. You can view the TV spots and Hardee’s commercial below.
