So this is supposedly the trailer for the new Superman film, Man of Steel, that premiered at Comic Con yesterday. We say supposedly because it’s almost impossible to make anything out. It’s honestly the worst quality video we’ve ever seen.
Not that we’re complaining mind. An almost unwatchable trailer is better than no trailer at all, and the sound seems ok. However, mitigating the general uselessness of the clip somewhat, we’ve do have a description of what actually happened by the fellow who uploaded it onto YouTube:
Flashes of Smallville were shown, including the Kent farm house and a shot of a young Clark Kent running in a red cape. A grown up and bearded Clark then walks on a snowy road with a voice-over from Russell Crow’s Jor-El (talking about children being, “inspired to greater things”) and Kevin Costner’s Jonathan Kent giving Clark advice on becoming the man he wants to be. Clark is then shown in the Kent barn looking at the spaceship he crashed to Earth in, and holding a small piece of metal with the iconic “S” logo on it. The footage then flashes to different periods in his life, offering a look at Clark as a teenager saving a bus full of children who have crashed in the water as he pulls the door off.
