WB Teasing Two Trailers for Snyder's 'Man of Steel' This Weekend
Here's something exciting for Superman fans. While any other news related to the movies this weekend has been overshadowed by the tragic shooting, there's a story definitely worth hearing about the new Superman trailers playing this weekend. We've expected Warner Bros to finally debut a trailer for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel playing with The Dark Knight Rises this weekend, and while they definitely have, early reports coming in are that there's an alternate version. In fact, there may be two unique, different teaser trailers for Man of Steel playing out there, with slight variations and our first look at any Superman footage.
The news comes from our friends at SlashFilm, who noticed varying reports of trailer footage showing up on Superman Homepage. Apparently there's one trailer that has a Jor-El voiceover, another has a Jonathan Kent voiceover. At first they were thought to be separate for different countries, but multiple versions are being reported as showing around the US as well. "One features a voice over by Pa Kent (Kevin Costner) the other, Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and it seems like the placement is totally random." Other than that, I think the trailers have the exact same footage, but I'm not entirely sure as I haven't see any of them myself.
"You're not just anyone. One day you're gonna have to make a choice. You have to decide what kind of man you want to grow up to be. Whoever that man is, good character or bad, it's going to change the world."
That's the quote that Jonathan Kent states in one of the trailers. This all sounds similar to the footage we saw at Comic-Con in Warner Bros' big Hall H panel (watch our video blog here), but cut down into smaller pieces as teaser trailers. It's very interesting that they're running two slightly different trailers for Man of Steel, definitely adds to the mystique of it, especially when the difference involves Jor-El and Kal-El, played by Henry Cavill. I'm very interested to hear how these trailers play and the reactions to the footage anyway, even though we have to wait until the trailers arrive online for a full breakdown & discussion. We'll update this if we learn more info about the different Man of Steel trailers. For now, catch them in theaters.
Update! You can now see both of the trailers online, as they were debuted officially. The first one definitely does feature a Pa Kent voiceover, while the other is for Jor-El. You can watch both of them online here.
