At Last, a Man of Steel Trailer That Showcases Hot Crazy Action

The Man of Steel aims to reinvent Superman as the ultimate cosmic outcast — but rest assured, he'll still fly and punch stuff and get in the middle of deadly conflagrations. This brand new trailer gives us the Super-brawls and explosions we've been craving.


Among the other new stuff in this trailer: a glimpse of the Fall of Krypton, and Jor-El sending his baby son into space; Lois Lane searching the globe for the elusive man who saves people but never sticks around to take credit; the moment where Superman gets his name; and some snippets of General Zod freaking out. Plus lots and lots of glimpses of action set pieces, which look suitably insane. Here's hoping there's enough action to counterbalance the angst in this film.

That whole trailer was like listening to two hours of grief counseling. Why did they have to make this movie so dark and depressing? Curse you Christopher Nolan and your family and your accountant and the guy who occasionally sells you a bagel from his sidewalk stand! I don't like my Superman with a beard! I don't like my Superman on a fishing boat! Why can't it have more musical numbers?!

Yeah, that should just about cover it.
