Man of Steel

Even though director James Mangold shot down rumors of The Wolverine having a teaser trailer attached to The Hobbit, director Zack Snyder has confirmed that a Man of Steel trailer will indeed be attached to Peter Jackson's fantasy epic. It's not surprising since they're both Warner Bros films and Snyder is excited for the release saying, "I can’t wait for The Hobbit, so it will be fun to see our crazy Man of Steel trailer and then enjoy The Hobbit because that’s going to be great. It just feels like a fun Christmas thing to do, drag the whole family out for that action." In addition, Snyder also opened up about Michael Shannon, and the kind of gravitas he's bringing to the villain role of General Zod in the anticipated comic adaptation.

When asked about Michael Shannon's take on the villain Zod, Snyder told MTV:

"Shannon is great, he has such great enthusiasm and dedication constantly. You can imagine that you could get actors who go, ‘Oh right, it’s Zod, it’s not 100 percent serious,’ or [you can play it] slightly with a wink, there is none of that with him. His effort is to make it realized and to understand this character and what he has to go through, so you have that on one side and you have Henry, who basically is Superman, on the other side and that dynamic.”

And if that's not enough to get you excited for Man of Steel, Superhero Hype has found a special countdown reveal in conjunction with the Blu-Ray and DVD release of The Dark Knight Rises. All you have to do is share this countdown for some kind of exclusive "reward" once a certain amount of people share it as well:

Dark Knight Rises - Man of Steel Countdown

It's not clear if the exclusive reward is a new photo, poster or maybe even a sneak peek at the Man of Steel trailer (much like the lead-up to the Iron Man 3 trailer), but let's just get this thing unlocked so we can open it already. It would be a somewhat exciting early Christmas present. Anyway, stay tuned here for all the hype and excitement surrounding Man of Steel, leading up to the release of the film next year June 14th, 2013.

Haha, Zack Snyder is not the best at stringing together a coherent sentence in interviews. But I'm no less excited about this movie. I keep trying and failing to temper my expectations. Can't wait for the trailer .

I like Zack Snyder from interviews. He seems like the nicest guy. I also enjoy his movies (especially on a visual level). I really want him to succeed, because he has an unique vision and he does the movies he likes. I think people are way too hard on him and I hope this movie does good, because his latest were kind of box office flops.

I have the same opinion about Zack Snyder's work. I like the visuals he uses and the way he developes his movies. He has an unique vision and a very keen talent. I totally loved Watchmen, I've enjoyed Sucker Punch, 300 was amazing in the theater. I'm not a Superman's fan, but I'm going to see this movie for the director.

Im excited to see a realistic version of Superman from Zack Snyder a la The Dark Knight. but the thing i see as huh? is the pattern within the Superman outfit. I looks like his outfit is made up of the flooring of a gym. Just a little quirk that have. Other than that Im hyped.
