Man of Steel Trailer Promises Movie More Boring Than Superman Returns

A new 'Man of Steel' trailer will be hitting theaters with the release of 'The Hobbit', proving wrong doubters who thought that it would be impossible to make a worse Superman movie than Superman Returns.

One of the biggest complaints about Superman Returns, the failed Superman relaunch from a few years ago that featured Superman lifting boulders for two hours straight, was that the movie featured too much action. Addressing these concerns, Warner Bros. released a teaser trailer for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel earlier this year, which features Clark Kent sailing and hitchhiking for 95% of the trailer while a narrator drones on about role models and ideals.

"Blah blah blah blah," says the narrator over scenes of clothes drying on a line outside a house in Kansas set to the music of Gheorghe Zamfir, master of the pan flute. "Blah blah blah blah blah."

Finally, at the end of the trailer, we see Superman flying through the clouds, breaking the sound barrier.

"Yeah, nerds complained about Watchmen," Snyder probably told friends confidentially. "How do you like me now, bitches?"

Well played, Zack Snyder. Well played.

Now, the company has announced that a new trailer will be hitting theaters this December, with the release of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey".  Why a trailer being released is news, we can't say, but it did give us the opportunity to make a Zamfir: Master of the Pan Flute reference, so hey, we'll take what we can get.

Man of Steel will hit theaters on June 14, 2013, and you can see the new trailer December 14th if you are attending 'The Hobbit' or know what youtube is.

Here's the original teaser-trailer:

How was that different than the one in front of Dark Knight Rises?

Yeah thats the exact same boring ass trailer released earlier this year. I'll say it again and I'll say it a million more times, with the exception of those last few seconds absolutely nothing about this trailer makes me even think that it is a trailer for a Superman movie. Nothing about that trailer however makes me want to see that movie even a little.

Agreed. It's probably going to be one of my top 5 next year. I'm a big fan of everyone involved behind the lens.

They could have at least added Gina Carrano in it seeing as how she might be playing a certain character which movie will most likely flop when it gets released. :-D :-D :-D

Well.. I wouldn't say I'm a BIG fan of Snyder's, but as far as visual directors go, there's few better. Putting his eye for visuals and action together with a good script (hopefully) and a good actor as Superman, should hopefully lead to good things.

I am hopeful that Superman will actually do super things other than hover outside windows being a creep, and lift heavy objects this time around.. the villain being Zod gives me more hope in this department.

I am a huge Superman fan and I hope we get all those things to but nothing I have seen, hear, read etc about this movie leads me to believe that they will be in this movie or that it will be any more exciting or entertaining than Superman Returns was.

I misread the original news, article updated. The new trailer will be out with the Hobbit, but I was able to keep my reference to Zamfir, Master of the Pan Flute in tact, so it's a win/win situation.

I have high hopes. Snyder seems to be taking the same approach Abrams did with Star Trek.

I can understand that, on a small level.. but we've seen so little I have a hard time being negative right off the bat with it.
