According to the Alberta Film Ratings, the teaser trailer for Superman: Man of Steel is rated G with a running time of 1 minute and 27 seconds. I suppose this means we should keep our eyes peeled for it very, very soon! Like, potentially within the next week because of a particular convention happening in a particular place right now.

During his presentation at the Art Center of College and Design, Zack Snyder talked about his career and discussed a few things about the casting and pre-production of Man of Steel:

We had about 500 guys initially. We did this massive auditioning madness. It got down to the usual suspects in a pretty quick order. Henry Cavill was actually the first one we physically tested on film. We actually tested him in the Christopher Reeve Superman suit. And that was a big deal. That’s a hard suit to pull off. Trust me. If you’re just standing there in that suit, it’s dodgy. It felt like we just bought it a costume shop. Plus, there’s no mask. I’ve been around a few superhero costumes, and it’s weird because when you’re in the Superman costume it’s just you from the neck up. And somebody just combed your hair. But Henry came out of the trailer when we were shooting a test and everybody thought Okay, that’s Superman. He was awesome and did a great job.

Hans Zimmer is a busy, busy man. He just finished up with The Dark Knight Rises, and Man of Steel is his next project. He spoke with Danny Graydon about taking on the Superman tunes:

I don’t feel confident at all. I never feel confident. But, a little bit of fear has gone a long way to being inspiring in the past. John Williams is the master and I am not even going to try and go in that direction. I’ll try my best not to embarrass myself and my colleagues on the film. I’m definitely going to have a go! In a funny way, it’s exactly because Superman is such an opposite character to Batman that I am welcoming the opportunity to do the music.

Isn’t it interesting to hear that one of the best film composers out there is never confident about his work? I think so, at least.

Anyway, more Superman goodness to come during the SDCC, I’m sure!
