Over the weekend when the "Man Of Steel" viral hit -- "revealing" Michael Shannon's General Zod threatening the Earth -- some uber nerds complained that he was speaking perfect English and didn't have a Kryptonian accent or anything, proving that people will complain about anything. But for the rest of us, "Man Of Steel" is hopefully going to be the superhero highlight (we hope) of the summer, a movie that will flex both brains and brawn and this evening, a brand new trailer has arrived.

Thus far, the actual story has been kept locked down, and all we know is that it's gonna be emotions that get to Clark Kent, not kryptonite. (Somebody make this dude a mixtape). But this latest promo nails down the story a little more, while also providing plenty of spectacle. And perhaps most importantly, it continues to look like the best thing that Zack Snyder's ever done. Will that be the case when the final film arrives?

We'll find out when "Man Of Steel" flies high on June 14th. Watch the trailer below.

    Soooo anyone notice the name of the building at 2:18?

    Clever, Messrs. Goyer, Nolan, and Snyder. Tré clever.

    I vaguely remember everyone on these boards ready with knives out once the first 'official' still hit with Cavill up against the bank vault. People ready to completely write off a film because Zack Snyder had just belly-flopped with Sucker Punch. Now, after some kick-ass trailers and a few glowing test screenings, everyone is now expecting it to be THE event of the summer. I think the truth is that Snyder was ALWAYS a great fit for this material. Seems like this one is destined to deliver the goods.

    im stoked. a director that understands superman. WB chose well, and chose the cast well here.

    Lois: "What's the 'S' stand for?"
    Clark: "It's not an 'S.' On my world, it means hope.'"
    Lois: "Well, here it's... an 'S.' How about... Su--"
    Nolan: "DON'T FUCKING SAY IT!!!"
    Clark: "Excuse me"

    *sighs* It ISN'T the same gag from 'Inception': in the 'Man of Steel' trailer, the editor for the promo CLEARLY edited two different lines of dialogue to create a gag: Lois Lane doesn't have her mouth open in the next shot, which would be a continuity error in the match cut on action. THEY ARE TWO DIFFERENT MOMENTS THAT DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH EACH AND I HOPE YOU HAVE A BETTER ARGUMENT THAN 'err, Inception explains why I am right', BECAUSE THAT AIN'T CONVINCING ...

    Now that I think about it, the same gag was used at the end of the trailer for "Superman Returns".
    Jimmy: [puts a photo on the table] Look, in the sky, Chief.
    Lois: It's a bird.
    Perry: It's a plane.
    Jimmy: No, look, it's-
    Clark: Uh, you wanted to see me?

    It's the same type of end of trailer joke stinger in Inception ("dream a little bigger darling") and The Dark Knight Rises ("...this isn't a car). Whether it be Nolan or WB or whoever, they're allergic to the name "Superman."

  • Alan B | April 17, 2013 12:31 PM

    I'm a little embarrassed for you considering that you posted without thinking. Trailers sometimes edit two different pieces of dialogue together to create a correlation, even if such a connection does not exist in the film. The "how about Sup ..." gag doesn't actually exist: clearly those are two different moments sliced together, considering the continuity error in the next shot of Lois with her mouth closed. If anything, the WB marketing department should be blamed for creating a gag that doesn't exist in the film.

    Not that there's anything wrong with this but even just in the trailer I can see sooooo many parallels with this and Batman Begins. Ten bucks says it ends with a Lex Luthor reference just like BB ended with the Joker card. Still I'll most likely see this opening weekend

  • rodie | April 17, 2013 9:24 AM

    Well, it was written by the same dudes as Batman Begins, and like that film it traces the lines of the archetypical hero's journey with the call, the rejection of the call, the acceptance of destiny, etc....So yeah, it'll have the same beats rendered in a not dissimilar way, but that shouldn't lessen the enjoyment of the film.

    People were complaining about Zod's voice? How about Michael Shannon is better than you and he can do whatever the hell he wants.

  • Thislalife | April 16, 2013 11:03 PMReply

    Yeah I take back my previous shit talking this looks epic. Sheeeeeeeiiiiiitttt

  • Glass | April 16, 2013 10:25 PMReply

    Alright fine I'll fucking see this movie now

  • James | April 16, 2013 8:56 PMReply

    I've heard people raving about Man of Steel for a good while now, but I don't think this trailer was all that amazing. At least it didn't spoil the movie (lord those action beats are cut so fast).

    GOOD GOD Henry Cavill is incredibly good looking. Holy shit. I love the scene towards the end of the trailer with Amy Adams. Also Sarah over at Cinesnark saw the film and said that many ppl will be surprised with how good it is... so stoked! Between this and Gatsby, this will be the best summer ever!!!!!!

    Two months ago, I planned to predict STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS for a Best Picture nom. I'm now holding the blockbuster slot for MAN OF STEEL. I haven't seen the new trailer yet (no headphones), but have talked to a guy who knows a guy who has seen the film & says 'it's SUPER, man!'

    Trailer was cool, but not sure what to feel about the soundtrack.

    you guys are too cute. no one is nominating a super hero movie for best pic

  • hank | April 16, 2013 8:59 PM

    I know I guy who has talked to a guy that saw Star Trek. I'm predicting Best Picture noms for both Man of Steel and Star Trek. As well as The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises. I imagine this year, beyond all doubts, for the first time in history. It's going to be all super hero and blockbusters leading the Oscars race.
