Henry Cavill stars in new Man of Steel trailer

The latest trailer for Zack Synder's Superman reboot is packed full of explosive action and troubled soul-searching


A new trailer for Zack Synder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel, has been unveiled, with a host of new footage set to delight excited comic fans. The 2013 blockbuster – starring Henry Cavill in the role of Superman – will see the British actor step into the shoes of predecessors Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh to portray the superhero on the silver screen.


Directed by Synder, the film also boasts The Dark Knight Rises helmer Christopher Nolan as producer and stars Hollywood A-listers Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon. 


Set for UK release on 14 June 2013 in IMAX and 3D, the latest trailer features glimpses of a bearded Cavill as Clark Kent floating in icy water before previewing him rocketing through the skies in his superhero get-up. Add plenty of moody soul-searching interspersed with shots of his early years – plus a healthy amount of explosives and dramatic music – and, well, you get the picture. Check out the trailer below:
