The previous Man of Steel trailers we’ve seen thus far have all more or less focused on the same thing—Kal-El’s journey from his home planet of Krypton to Earth, and the dueling influences of his two fathers. His Kryptonian father predicts that he will help humans accomplish great things, while his adoptive Earth father wishes for him to hide his identity for fear of persecution; the trailers have more or less focused on that tug of war within the boy in blue. But the newest clip focuses solely on one thing—the spectacle of seeing Kryptonian criminal Zod and Superman clashing all over Earth.
It’s a fun little trailer, doing its best to remind viewers of how fun it was to watch Zod and Superman toss buses at each other at the end of Superman II. In short, Michael Shannon’s Zod comes to Earth demanding that we turn over Kal-El/ Superman to him, and that the fate of our planet will be determined by our decision. And then Zod and Superman make things go boom and it’s exciting. Check it out:
Pretty cool, no?
