It’s a Really Blurry ‘Man of Steel’ Trailer

The Man of Steel trailer was shown at Comic-Con and will be released this Friday. But why wait 3 days when you can watch a really blurry, hard to make out version that hit the web a few days ago?

You can’t actually see much in this copy because the person recording it thought aiming the camera in the general direction of the screen would be good enough. At least the audio is clear.

You can pretty much tell by the dark colors and the Hans Zimmer score that Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight pretty much set the stage for every DC comic movie from now on. That Batman jerk is always setting the bar too high.

Here’s a breakdown of the trailer courtesy of WGTC.

  • We see flashes of Smallville. The farm house. Clark running in a red cape as a child.
  • This looks VERY different from Superman films of the past
  • An older, bearded Clark walks a snowy road in an arctic town.
  • We hear Russell Crowe’s voice talking about children being inspired to greater things
  • It sounds like it’s cut with Kevin Costner’s voice. Both fathers are giving Clark/Kal advice on how to become who he wants to be
  • We see Clark being brought to the Kent barn and shown the spaceship that has been hidden there
  • Clark holds a small piece of metal with the S logo on the end
  • We’re jumping back and forth through time periods
  • Clark, as a teen, saved a bus of kids
  • The bus crashed in the water and we see him swimming, pulling the door off
  • “People are afraid of what they don’t understand,” says Costner
  • We see Clark talking to Jor-El. They’re standing right in front of one another, but I think it’s a holographic projection (though it looks live)
  • We see Superman in the suit. First from a distance and then walking across a snowy plain
  • There are flashing of Superman flying and one of him catching someone falling off a building
  • A single flash of Amy Adams’ Lois Lane
  • One flash has Superman (in costume) — seemingly in handcuffs — being led down a hallway by a security force
  • We see Clark (without seeing his face) stepping into an elevator and begin to lift glasses to his face
  • There’s a flash of Clark, shirtless, with his whole body on fire
  • Another of him crashing into the bank vault we saw in the first still. It looks like he’s been thrown.
  • I’m not great at describing music, but it’s decidedly more somber than Williams’s score.
  • The whole look of it has a very dark, autumny feel to it all.
  • There’s a major discussion in the narration about the world turning against Superman because they don’t trust him if he ever appears.
  • There’s a flash of Zod, but literally so fast you just see his face.
  • Apparently someone witnessed young Clark as a child saving the bus with his powers.
  • None of the trademark Snyder shots in the trailer. No slo-mo or shuttery frames
