Trailer for your Weekend: Man of Steel

Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder, hopefully he will channel himself on this film, rather than too much Christopher Nolan.

With The Avengersand Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy both out of the way, Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot Man of Steel is probably the most anticipated comic book film in active production.

After the dirge that was Superman Returns, a lot of people are hoping for a Nolan-esque shot of life for Superman. Those financing the film are obviously hoping for that too as he has been brought on as a producer for this film. This could go either way. Snyder, love him or hate him, is one of the most original directors out there. I want to see his take on the Superman universe, with a little of Nolan’s assured touch in there. I do not want to see Snyder, trying to be Nolan. And on the basis of this trailer, that is what I fear may happen – it’s all very Dark Knightey. What do you guys think?

  1. I’m looking forward to this movie. I love the Superman character. That said, two questions plague me watching this trailer. 1. Why is Superman hitch hiking? Why doesn’t he just fly? 2. Why does he have Jet contrails?

  2. Both valid points. They definitely seemed reluctant to show him flying, or the more fantastical elements of the character, leaving it to the one shot right at the end. I got nothin on the jet contrails though.
