Teaser trailersÂ have beenÂ released for directorÂ Zack Snyderâ€˜sÂ Man of SteelÂ Â - they’re both the same aside from the voice-overs provided by Supes’ Earth and Krypton Pa’s. TheÂ visualsÂ play more like an ad, with veryÂ ambiguous ‘slice of life’ style imageryÂ that’sÂ tied into the Man of Steel’s conflicted emotional/moralÂ dilemmaÂ -Â whetherÂ or not be a super hero is the message.
TheÂ visuals areÂ handheld and gritty, and theÂ coloursÂ are washed out and naturalistic. Â This puts a new spin on the genre -Â especiallyÂ the Superman mythos which has alway been presented using very pristine visuals. With Christopher NolanÂ shepherding the project asÂ producerÂ - he’s keen to see the flick come across inÂ aÂ less stylised way, and from the looks of the teaser it seems thatÂ Zack Snyder has done exactly that.
As a teaser- with little or no effects work complete at this stage, we’re only shown Superman’s'Â sound breaking’Â ascentÂ through the clouds – howeverÂ closer to the next yearsÂ releaseÂ we can expect someÂ enticingÂ CGI enhanced visuals which will no doubt be impressive – seeing as Snyder excels in theÂ departmentÂ of super freaky imagery.
Hans ZimmerÂ will be handling the score for directorÂ Zack Snyderâ€™s Superman rebootÂ despite initial conflicting reports, and there’s also theÂ possibilityÂ that the film may be post converted into 3D.
Man of SteelÂ starsÂ Henry Cavill,Â Amy Adams,Â Michael Shannon,Â Costner,Â DianeÂ Lane,Â Laurence Fishburne,Â Antje Traue,Â Ayelet Zurer,Â Christopher Meloni, andÂ Crowe.
