A brand-new video gives us our first look at Superman’s family, enemies, and of course, Lois Lane.
Man of Steel isn’t due out in theaters until the summer of 2013, but thanks to the first full-length trailer of Zack Snyder‘s new movie, we have a feeling it’ll be worth the wait. Not only are we given many new and exciting views of Henry Cavill in full Superman garb — there’s a particularly excellent shot of him emerging from a burning room that we’ve got on repeat — but it also provides a first glimpse at many of the faces we’ve been dying to see.
Here’s a quick breakdown of some of the best/newest stuff revealed in the trailer:
0:50 — Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent
1:47 — Russell Crowe as Jor-El
1:48 — That “burning room” scene I mentioned earlier
1:52 — Michael Shannon as General Zod
2:00 — Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy
2:11 — Amy Adams as Lois Lane
Needless to say, Man of Steel looks like a major improvement on the Superman franchise’s previous effort, 2006’s Superman Returns. While Brandon Routh certainly looked the part, we have a feeling audiences — and critics — are immediately going to warm up to British-born Henry’s turn as the blue blur.
Watch the Man of Steel trailer in all its glory below, then drop a comment: Will you be first in line to check it out this summer?
