So before The Dark Knight Rises (that I will not spoil here under penalty of death), DC revealed their newest Christopher Nolan related ace in the hole. He & Watchmen director Zack Synder are teaming up to bring a more telling representation of Earth’s protector to the big screen. After the failure that was Superman Returns, a darker more engrossing story about the Man Of Steel should be welcomed. After all, DC still has the crown in its battle with Marvel for true-to-form depictions of its greatest heroes. David S. Goyer penned the script, Henry Cavill steps in the red boots of Kal-El and the film also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Diane Lane as Martha Kent and Michael Shannon as General Zod (!).

Watch the trailer for Man Of Steel below and expect it to own the box office next summer.
