Remember that complaint people had about the last Superman film being way too introspective and thoughtful and not very action-oriented?
Yeah, I don’t think there’s going to be much complaining along those lines with Man of Steel. Okay, sure, there’s certainly a large amount of hand wringing being done by Clark (Henry Cavill) as he struggles with his place in the world, when he should be out there saving it, but it’s apparent that General Zod (Michael Shannon) quickly puts a stop to Kal-El’s pussyfooting simply by holding the entire planet hostage.
This trailer is crammed full of explosive action, even if it’s all punched out in half-second bursts slammed together in a one minute and forty-seven second package. Is this the Superman film we’ve been waiting for?
