I’m sure geeks everywhere were a little disappointed to find out that the first trailer for James Mangold’s The Wolverine would NOT be attached to Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit, but you can rejoice with the knowledge that a new Man Of Steel trailer is. MTV News spoke with Zack Snyder who confirmed that information and gushed about it’s unveiling, “It’s fun. 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.”
While Zack sounds like a kid who can’t wait to unwrap his Christmas present upon the world, he also took the time to praise Michael Shannon’s take on General Zod. “Shannon is great, he has such great enthusiasm and dedication constantly,” Snyder said. “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.”
Synopsis: Next summer, “Man Of Steel” is coming to the big screen. The film is from director Zack Snyder and producers Charles Roven, Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel Joe Shuster and and published by DC Comics.
