Zack Snyder’s new take on Superman (overseen by ‘godfather’ Christopher Nolan) will hope to draw in crowds with a more action-packed and less reverential take than Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns.
The teaser trailer was revealed to the baying crowds (don’t worry, it’ll be attached to the cinema release of The Dark Knight Rises), and the general consensus was that it was a very dark, gritty, Batman Begins-esque take on the legendary character.
Henry Cavill’s Superman appeared to be struggling to find a place in the modern world, and in the footage we saw, there was a notable absence of humour. The shots of a bearded, wandering Clark Kent did nothing to alleviate the BB comparisons.
The inevitable Justice League question arose, but Snyder claimed that they needed to get Superman’s ‘house in order’ before thinking about the bigger picture.
