After the eerie General Zod video warning comes the third and most emotional "Man of Steel" trailer: an existential journey to define the heart and soul of Kal-El/Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and his role as outsider/savior.

The trailer is like a superhero symphony (bolstered by Hans Zimmer’s majestic score), beginning with the destruction of the neo-medieval Krypton, but not before father Jor-El (Russell Crowe) casts his infant into space like a celestial Moses. But on Earth, after saving a school bus full of children, Clark is afraid of being discovered and rejected, though adopted father Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) encourages him to find his destiny. Who is he? Ghost or guardian angel?

Warner Bros.' "Man of Steel," directed by Zack Snyder, hits theaters June 14.
