It’s finally here folks! The moment we’ve all been waiting for, footage from the upcoming Man of Steel has been shown at SDCC. The most important thing, however, is that the reaction is overwhelmingly positive and is said to have a “Batman Begins-vibe,” and that “it doesn’t feel like a Zack Snyder movie at all.” Is that enough to whet your appetites? Good. Read the description below:
“We see flashes of Smallville. The farm house. Clark running in a red cape as a child. An older, bearded Clark walks a snowy road in an arctic town. We hear Russell Crowe’s voice talking about children being inspired to greater things. It sounds like it’s cut with Kevin Costner’s voice. Both fathers are giving Clark/Kal advice on how to become who he wants to be. We see Clark being brought to the Kent barn and shown the spaceship that has been hidden there.
Clark holds a small piece of metal with the S logo on the end. We’re jumping back and forth through time periods. Clark, as a teen, saved a bus of kids. The bus crashed in the water and we see him swimming, pulling the door off. “People are afraid of what they don’t understand,” says Costner. We see Clark talking to Jor-El. They’re standing right in front of one another, but I think it’s a holographic projection (though it looks live). We see Superman in the suit. First from a distance and then walking across a snowy plain.
There are flashing of Superman flying and one of him catching someone falling off a building. A single flash of Amy Adams’ Lois Lane. One flash has Superman (in costume) — seemingly in handcuffs — being led down a hallway by a security force. We see Clark (without seeing his face) stepping into an elevator and begin to lift glasses to his face. There’s a flash of Clark, shirtless, with his whole body on fire. Another of him crashing into the bank vault we saw in the first still. It looks like he’s been thrown.”
Well, I can’t deny the movie sounds incredible and intriguing at the same time. Oh, and in case you were wondering, Zack Snyder confirmed that the teaser will appear in front of The Dark Knight Rises and that the movie is in post-production. Because I’m feeling nice, here’s an awesome extra bonus, the leaked teaser poster!
