Debuting in US cinemas with prints of The Dark Knight Rises, now Yahoo! Movies and MSN respectively have given us our first online look at the teaser trailers for Zack Snyder’s Superman film, Man of Steel.
Next summer (or winter for those of us in Australia), Man of Steel is coming to the big screen. The film is from director Zack Snyder and producers Charles Roven, Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer and Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster and published by DC Comics. It stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne.
The trailers are a mix of Beasts of the Southern Wild and Chronicle (by way of Batman Begins), and as two of the best films of the year so far, this might be Zynder’s most mature work to date. With the The Dark Knight Rises team of Goyer and Nolan involved, this will undoubtedly have fanboy and girl knickers well and truly in a knot.
Man of Steel is released on 13 June 2013 in Australia from Roadshow, 14 June 2013 in the US.
