I have to say that I’m impressed with the Man of Steel trailer but of course I still have my concerns.
Let’s start with the trailer we received in the summer before The Dark Knight Rises. That one didn’t give us much and left us wanting a larger trailer that included more footage and some ideas of the plot. Yet, we didn’t exactly get that with this new trailer.
With this one we get a glimpse of the tone of the movie, which is what a teaser trailer really does. We can see that this is going to be a movie humanizing Superman, which can go two ways; it can be interesting or just boring.
You can see that the world they’re creating here is dark, conflicted and there is a lot of doubt. I like this, because where everything is working against the hero it just becomes that more satisfying when he becomes Superman.
The villain, Zod does show up very briefly in the trailer. In briefly I mean we just get a glimpse of his face. I would like to see the next trailer focus a little more on him so we can get an idea of what he's up to.
I really hope that this movie works, because let’s face it, if this movie flops and fails we won’t be getting any more Superman movies for a long, long time.
I enjoy Superman, he’s not my favorite comic to read but I always enjoyed the ones that I did read. There is a lot of potential for a Superman movie and I believe that the tone this trailer set is on the right path, let’s just hope that the plot is worth it.
