The first full length trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man Of Steel has hit the Internet and I have to say that it may have rekindled the ashes of my desire to see the movie. Listening to Kevin Costner‘s voice as he (Jonathan Kent) tries to raise his adopted son to become the man . . . no, the HERO, the world deserves sent chills down my back.
We only get a couple of glimpses at what may turn out to be the villain of the piece and a few glances at Superman using his powers, but the over all feeling I get from this trailer is one of hope. Hope that Snyder may have gotten it right. Hope that Henry Cavill can take a place beside Christopher Reeves and others who have successfully taken on the mantle of Superman.
The Man Of Steel flies it’s way onto theater screens June 14th, 2013

With as much drama as there was in Tennant’s Tardis a sitcom parody couldn’t have been far behind. Rose loved him, Martha loved him, Jack, umm, just wanted to do him. And whose Donna, Phoebe? (TheMarySue)
Working with Zack Snyder really pays off, at least in the case of Matthew Goode. Goode, who played Ozymandias in Snyder’s Watchmen is now in the running to play bumbling reporter Clark Kent in his reboot of Superman. I’ve gotta say, I’m pretty excited about the low-key British actor playing the role! Clearly, Jon Hamm is too old for the role and I wouldn’t see the fucking thing if they recast Brandon Routh, even though he looked the part (he just didn’t do it for me).
Another nice thing about Goode being considered for the project is that since Snyder plans on relying mainly on CGI for the suit (just like The Green Lantern) this means that Goode wouldn’t haven’t to “beef up” for the part. And I’ve gotta this guy definitely seems like a “good” fit.
In other “Man of Steel” news, next month Mattel will be releasing a 12″ Christopher Reeves Movie Masters Action Figure! The figure will have a cloth-like replica from the suit in the movie, as well as a more muscular build. The action figure will also consist of interchangeable hands, one for flight and one for punching. Also included is a piece of the Fortress of Solitude with removal crystals. The Superman action figure is the first figure being released in a series. Next to follow will be General Zod on December 15th and a Lex Luthor as portrayed by Gene Hackman. It seems like no matter how old, we get we never outgrow sweet toys like this and going for only 60 bucks we can add it to our bookshelves in no time! Check out pics of the action figure after the jump!
