The trailer for Man of Steel is now up. As most of you know, a new Superman movie is A Big Deal so I had to post it here.
Hard to say if it’s going to be good. There is barely a glimpse of the villain General Zod (played by Michael Shannon) and he looks nothing like Superman 2’s Zod. Henry Cavill really, really looks the part. And Superman actually throws punches in this movie, not like in that all-but-forgotten Superman Returns POS.
Director Zack Snyder is really hit or miss. He’s got very good movies, but he also has terrible movies. But John Williams’ theme song appears to be missing.
Christopher Reeve, the actor who became famous for playing Superman in the 1978, 1980, 1983, and 1987 passed away last Sunday from complications due to his condition. After he was paralyzed in an equestrian competition in 1995, Reeve not only put a human face on spinal cord injury but he motivated neuroscientists around the world to conquer the most complex diseases of the brain and central nervous system. (from his biography). He played a hero on the screen and in real life.
