“Man of Steel” doesn’t hit theaters for another six months, but you only have to wait a few weeks for an all-new trailer to premiere.
Director Zack Snyder confirms to MTV News that a new “Man of Steel” trailer will be attached to “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in December, in two different versions: one in 2-D, the other in 3-D. Those trailers could very well give fans their first look at the dynamic between hero Henry Cavill and villain Michael Shannon, two actors that Snyder described as going “all the way” with the material.
“I was just incredibly fortunate to play with those guys who really were giving all they had to bring a level of commitment to the scenes they have together so that audiences will get an opportunity to really have their heroes taken seriously,” the filmmaker told MTV’s Kara Warner while promoting the “Watchmen Collector’s Edition” release. “As serious as I was taking it, and I don’t mean that from a depressing kind of way but from a, ’This is important and fun and needs to be given the respect that it deserves,’ from that perspective it was so exciting to watch them drink the Kool-Aid of that concept and go all the way.”
“Shannon is great, he has such great enthusiasm and dedication constantly,” Snyder added of his film’s villain. “His effort is to make it realized and to understand this character and what he has to go through, so you have that on one side and you have Henry, who basically is Superman, on the other side and that dynamic.”
