Excuse me for a moment………gotta wait for this to go away……
Look, Zack Snyder gets a lot of shit and a lot of it is not deserved. I love how everyone absolutely loves 300 but says that Snyder is a shitty director. Let’s face it, he has only tripped up once in his directorial career. The Dawn of the Dead remake was good, 300 was great and Watchmen proved that the “unfilmable” graphic novel could be made into a great movie. So I can forgive him for Sucker Punch (which I never thought was as bad as people said). But I digress.
Man of Steel trailer. Now haters are always going to try to nitpick every single thing but I’ll be damned if this trailer isn’t beautiful and get a whole lot accomplished in two and a half minutes.
First off, Henry Cavill (in costume) is fu**ing Superman. I have always liked the new costume because of the New 52 look to it. At the halfway point in the trailer when he leaves the fortress and flies up (who did this music BTW, amazing) into the sky it was over. This movie should be on every nerd’s must watch list.
Second, we only get a quick glimpse of Michael Shannon’s Zod but he certainly has the right look and it appears that Supes will be fighting an interstellar force by the end of the preview. I am seeing a whole lot of Mark Waid’s Birthright story here and that is a great thing.
The entire first part of the preview is Ma and Pa (mostly Ma) giving Clark advice. We don’t see a whole lot of Amy Adam’s Lois but there is plenty of time left before the June release date to show her off more. This trailer needed to hit all the right notes especially being shown in front of The Hobbit this weekend because a very large audience is going to be watching.
Bring your doubts, your Zack Snyder hate. I will be waiting on June 14 when this movie turns out to be the Superman movie this generation has been waiting on.
