Trailer Trashing: Man of Steel.

There's a new action-centric trailer for The Man of Steel take a gander kiddies...

First thought: If Kal-El is worried that people will reject him, a hunk in a cape, simply for being an alien, then poor Martian Manhunter is doomed to develop an eating disorder.

Second thought: The trailer shows Zack Snyder's visual flair coupled nicely with Christopher Nolan & Co.'s ability to update and expand on the modern folklore nature of the superhero story. Finger's crossed that the script keeps that up.

Third thought: The action looks properly "super" with lots of high speed heavy walloping.

Fourth thought: Amy Adams looks like she can pull off Lois Lane, which is not an easy job.

Fifth thought: Superman's biological and adoptive father were both Robin Hood.


Those are my thoughts. 

What are yours?

    As I said earlier, cautiously optimistic...

    Kevin Costner as Pa Kent. Oh, h*ll yes! If Kevin Costner can work his sons-n-fathers mojo a la 'Field of Dreams', I may just be one sobbing-wreck-of-a-Hardcheese come opening night.

    Amy Adams can do no wrong in my book, not after her amazing turn in 'The Master'. (Psst...Amy...get one of yer arty director pals to cast you in an updated Macbeth, Stat!)

    The shot where Supes is holding up the collapsing oil rig gives me chills. And no, it's not because Henry Cavill's got his shirt off.

    Overall, it looks like they took Kevin Smith's advice and made it all about Superman punching things.
