High Resolution Screengrabs From MAN OF STEEL Teaser Trailer

We all saw the very atmospheric teaser trailer for the the Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot Man of Steel, which features our first look at the footage from the film. Now, hit the jump to check out these high-res screengrabs...

Next summer, "Man of Steel" is coming to the big screen. The film is from director Zack Snyder and producers Charles Roven, Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer & Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster and published by DC Comics.

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

Starring Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Costner and Ayelet Zorer, Man of Steel is set to hit theatres on June 14, 2013.

That screenshot with superman flying is beautiful.
AtomicChipmunk - 7/22/2012, 10:11 AM
After teh sonic burst, he takes the classical flight position (with his arms upward).

Superman flying is always done right for each generation this oone feels so right almost like seeing ironman fly in the first but more organic

I just wish that the teaser they had released with TDKR was the same teaser that was shown at Comic Con -__-

so whats with the screen grab of a little kids crotch? just sayin
CrashTest - 7/22/2012, 10:13 AM
Superman flying was freaking great! But it reminded me to much of the first Iron Man Trailer, except he's flying up.

I would have like to see something different.
Vafrous - 7/22/2012, 10:13 AM
I prefer the Jonathan Kent narrated teaser. You guys?
masterhater - 7/22/2012, 10:14 AM
I thought the trailer was beautifully shot. This is going to be a great movie.
JorEl85 - 7/22/2012, 10:15 AM
Wonder why he's hitch-hiking...

This has some of the best cinematography I've seen in a comic book adaptation.
BlackFlash - 7/22/2012, 10:20 AM
From the look of the teaser trailer and the little bits of detail i've gotten, I think were gonna see a Smallville element to this when it comes to his trails in becoming superman. I got a feeling that all those images we've seen of him with his beard that he actually doesn't have any powers and that one of the task Jor-El gives him is to live amongst the people as one of them and everytime he decides to help someone he starts to regain his abilities. I think when he goes back to the fortress of solitude this is when he gains his ability to fly, that clip we see might be the first time he actually flies hence to reason it looked like he was struggling to break to sound barrier until he stretch his arms out in front of him.

I will believe again!
AtomicChipmunk - 7/22/2012, 10:22 AM
Too early to have an opinion?

Spiritual travel?
Travelling toward the Fortress of Solitude?
AtomicChipmunk - 7/22/2012, 10:23 AM

I hope there will be no Smallville elements/inspiration. It would ruin the movie for me.
AsianVersionOfET - 7/22/2012, 10:30 AM
Great cinematography. Cannot wait.

You'll believe a man can fish.
angus666 - 7/22/2012, 10:31 AM
That last pic of him flying is my new background.

Wonderful Teaser!

I finally got a chance to hear and see the Russell Crowe narration and I've got to say, it makes me look forward to the epicness of Man of Steel. Since most people I've talked to have heard Kevin Costner's version, I assume they are going with a more grounded approach to general audience interpretation of the Man of Steel, which totally makes sense. They both serve a very different purpose. Those who cherish Christopher Reeve's presence will remember the great sense of destiny that Crowe now reiterates. And for everyone who is aware of the Man of Steel being the Batman Begins for Superman, then Costner's speech also inspires.

My question would be, what if they fuse the two? While it probably isn't realistic, I think it'd bring depth to a teaser trailer, conveying godliness and humanity all in one. As for the Lord of the Rings track behind the teaser, as a critique for its utilization in this teaser, it captures the essence of a very pure, pristine focus, a birth (or rebirth) if you will. It's like a light slowly starting to shine, shimmering faintly. Sure the track could've been different as it does sound off-putting for those who know its origin, but its purpose is just and rightfully claimed as the initiator to a new Superman.

As this is only a teaser, something tells me we have yet to see what happens when that light is at full burst. And I for one can't wait to see the clouds break.

Great teaser. I prefer the Jonathan Kent one. And I cant understand how Supes is "struggling" to break the sound barrier. He does it in less than 10 seconds.
Nubase - 7/22/2012, 10:47 AM
This is a quote from nolan when he was asked about man of steel, this was before the events in denver.

While promoting 'The Dark Knight Rises', director Christopher Nolan told Yahoo! Movies that new Superman film 'Man of Steel' was "the future of the superhero genre".

l believe that the man of steel franchase will be the birth of the JL Movie thats due to come out in 2016.

Most intriguing however is the choice of director. Snyder has one of the most recognisable visual styles in Hollywood, as seen in the highly stylised and meticulous compositions in '300', 'Sucker Punch' and 'Dawn of the Dead'. He also did a decent job of adapting the notoriously complex 'Watchmen' for the big screen.

He certainly impressed die-hard fans at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego. Similar 'Man of Steel' footage to what you're seeing above had many geeks in tears. One described himself as a "blubbering mess" after the screening. Another said: "Any doubt I had was gone with that trailer."
Snyder himself said that they rebuilt superman totally from scratch, ignoring the previous films and even John Williams' iconic score. He said: "We had to act as if no film has been made. When we approached it, we had to say 'this is Superman for the first time'.
"It's about making him work and making him cool."
ClarkFarley2012 - 7/22/2012, 10:48 AM
Amazing. Him hitch hiking is a very interesting element. Next summer can't come quick enough.
bretlfc - 7/22/2012, 10:50 AM
cannot wait for this film, loving the direction they have taken with it aswell.
Name - 7/22/2012, 10:51 AM
I hope the slow momens dont drag on like tdkr for this film. hey need to get a superman film right. The flyings good but its to be expected, returns had te perfect flyng effects. Please have a lot ofaction and super punches knocking people through buildings etc
GUNSMITH - 7/22/2012, 10:53 AM

JDUKE25 - 7/22/2012, 10:56 AM
@GUNSMITH Maybe he just doesn't feel like it. We'll have to wait till the movie to find out for sure.
Minotauro - 7/22/2012, 10:56 AM
@kemuael - I believe you know nothing about the character. Or you're a marvelite, either one.
GUNSMITH - 7/22/2012, 10:57 AM
inky - 7/22/2012, 10:57 AM
both voice overs worked well and both on different levels, one can only hope that zac has kept within the realms of supermans origins in this and not made too many big changs a superman fans are less forgiving than many others.
i only hope the producers named dont interfere
JDUKE25 - 7/22/2012, 11:01 AM
Jeremy Jahns said it best about the two different versions: One is about choice (Pa Kent), the other is about destiny (Jor El).

Superduper - 7/22/2012, 11:06 AM
I think he's hitching it, because he wants to feel more human? Also the synopsis of the movie says Clark is in his 20's. In some of the Superman story lines, it takes him a long time of being exposed to our yellow sun before most of his powers develop; maybe he's just too young to fly at this point of the movie?
JDUKE25 - 7/22/2012, 11:06 AM
@SuspenseSmith seems about right
Fxrank - 7/22/2012, 11:09 AM
I can only hope Nolan took no part in the writing or directing. I would hate to see another Nolan origin re-write.
sbdc1939 - 7/22/2012, 11:10 AM
trailer was great cant wait to see what everyone at comic con got to see. I like that jor el and pa kent both hav different ideologies on how clark will affect the world
wanzman74 - 7/22/2012, 11:17 AM
It sees that Clark would be hitchhiking for the simple reason that he wants to try and hold on to some sense of humanity. From what I have read about the film he does not fully embrace his kryptonian side and powers and feels very alone in the world. Not using his powers helps him maintain some connection to the people around him. It isn't until his hand is forced by Zod that he is forced to embrace his Kryptonian side to save the people he wishes to identify with....
