WATCH: ‘Man of Steel’ Trailer, Featuring Henry Cavill as Superman
Ahead of its release in theaters Friday (December 14) during previews attached to the The Hobbit, Warner Bros. has digitally released the trailer for Man of Steel — 300 director Zack Snyder‘s reboot of the Superman tale starring British Tudors star Henry Cavill. The nearly two-and-a-half minute clip has a decidedly somber War of the Worlds-meets-The Dark Knight tone (unsurprisingly, since Christopher Nolan is producing). Take a look and see what you think. Spoiler, but Cavill, who underwent a 300-inspired body transformation for the part, is both shirtless and on fire at 1:49.
