If you had asked me a few years ago if I wanted to see yet another Superman movie my answer would have firmly been no. Why? Because Superman Returns was a complete debacle that focused far to hard on trying to channel Christopher Reeve and not enough on being a great film of substance.
When Warner Brothers announced we would get yet another kick at Superman I moaned and then they did something that changed everything. They announced that Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder would be involved in bringing the film to life.
Zack Snyder is best known for Watchmen and 300 but for me his best film was the Dawn of the Dead remake. Any director that can take one of the greatest genre films and remake it without completely alienating the die hard fans deserves serious props.
If Zack Snyder can do for Superman what he did for the remake of Dawn of the Dead we are in for a blast.
Some haters are not fans that General Zod is returning when there is a sea of other great potential villains but I am willing to look past that. There is no question that much like The Dark Knight Warner Brothers is looking to launch a new franchise and General Zod will be just the first of many villains to take on the Man of Steel.
Getting to the point you can checkout a brand new Superman Man of Steel trailer below aptly titled ‘The Future of the Planet’. My favorite line in the trailer? For every person you save, we will kill a million!
