ZOD IS COMING FOR KAL EL IN NEW MAN OF STEEL TRAILER
Scriptwriter David S. Goyer has previously stated that he wanted to emphasise the first contact aspects of the Superman myth and this trailer certainly demonstrates that. Clark Kent has been wandering the Earth performing good deeds, but always keeping his identity a secret. It seems now his own people force him to become Superman, or they will destroy Earth.
It seems the iconic bespectacled Daily Planet alter-ego version of Clark Kent won’t really appear in this film but that Lois Lane’s investigation plays an important part in discovering the truth about Kal El. The convention with most modern origin stories tends to put the established world on hold until the very last scene just as with Kirk taking command on The Enterprise in Star Trek or even Skyfall with James Bond finally meeting Miss Moneypenny. Rather than having Superman put on the suit at the end of this film, expect him to take up work at The Daily Planet and put on those glasses.
Man of Steel is released 14 June 2013 in the US and the UK
