Tease Me, Baby – Man of Steel
When it comes to this article, me and Aaron often nip off to the STRATUS hangars to duke it out with “borrowed” mecha until one is left a smoking pile of parts and the other, the victor. Or we call dibs, whichever we feel like on that day. Why is that relevant, you ask? Because we got a new Man of Steel trailer and you can guess where this bit is going…
I called dibs. HA! Weren’t expecting that, were ya? Suck it, nerds! Wait, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, Das Übermensch. The new Man of Steel is a drastic tonal shift in comparison to Supey’s last outing with Brandon Routh. This is much darker, being produced by Chris “Dark Knight” Nolan and directed by Zack Snyder and if the trailer is any indication, we’re looking at one beautiful movie! Let’s dive into trailer!
Wet Behind the Ears
We see a lot of scenes of tiny Clark Kent, a prototypical Superboy struggling as his powers manifest and struggling with the responsibility, culminating in saving his class mates as their school bus falls into deep water.
Field of Screams
Kevin Costner is our new Jonathan Kent and we definitely get a different take on him, much more protective of his adopted son and, shockingly, willing to let children die to keep his son safe. I don’t know whether that’s a genuine fatherly emotion or pants-shittingly terrifying…..
Two things I love in this world; Lens flare and tundras and this ties into what I said before about this being a beautiful looking movie. Just look at it! GORGEOUS.
Man in Irons
This script is seemingly taking cues from the New 52 incarnation of Supes, not just the suit but the distrust of him by the military. He obviously can’t be contained but our boy scout will no doubt be cooperative to the authorities. Speaking of the costume….

Some people have got beef with the costume but I look at it this way; shut your whore mouths. It’s got the cape, it’s got the shield, it’s Superman’s costume. It rocks my socks and no mistake.
So that’s it for now folks! We’ve got an all-star cast, some beautiful looking cinematography and what’s shaping up to be a damn fine Superman movie. Man of Steel is due for release June 14, 2013.
