As the journey of Batman concludes on the big screen, another hero from the DC Comics’ gallery is preparing to make his return in next summer’s release of The Man of Steel.
One of two teaser trailers attached to The Dark Knight Rises, the clip shows a young Clark Kent working on a shipping vessell and wandering the countryside, in search of his destiny?
Henry Cavill plays Superman in director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. The film also stars Amy Adams as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Laurence Fishburne as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Diane Lane and Kevin Costner.
Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Ayelet Zurer, and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Russell Crowe. Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.
The teaser also plays up the creative team behind this latest re-boot, director Snyder (Watchman, Sucker Punch and 300) and producer Christopher Nolan (The Batman trilogy). The screenplay is written by long-time Nolan collaborator David S. Goyer.
The Man of Steel flies into theaters on June 14, 2013.
