Trailer: Man of Steel

I know this is a few days old at this point, and you’ve no doubt already seen it. However, I figured it was worth posting because I’m fascinated by the way Warner Brothers is marketing the new Superman movie by Zack Snyder. Superman is a tricky character to make sexy in this current superhero landscape because he’s basically an indestructible god among mortal men.

We also don’t really need yet another superhero origin story, but I love that Superman got a job doing the most dangerous job in the world to keep deep sea fishermen safe as he discovers his true potential. Also, for the first time it feels like the technology to make a larger-than-life Superman movie, like the crazy shit they can create on a comic page, is finally possible.
