RUMOR: Possible MAN OF STEEL Trailer Description

RUMOR: Possible MAN OF STEEL Trailer Description

Hit the jump to check out a possible description of the rough cut trailer for the Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot Man of Steel, which apparently Warner Bros. is currently editing...

Now that the filming is complete on the Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot, Man of Steel, it's more and more likely that we will get a first look at the trailer sometime this summer. A couple of days ago, I was sent a very in-detail description of the rough cut trailer for the film, which Warner Bros. has been developing for a while now. I should mention that this might not be the final cut; just one version they're currently working on. So, that explains the "Rumor" you see in the headline, because nothing is confirmed just yet. The person who sent this to me worked on the film. And judging from info he told me personally, the source is very well legit as far as I'm concerned. The description is, like I said, very in-detail and contains some interesting stuff. Check it out below:

"Opens with a shot of space. The camera is panning around the planets and zooming through space. There's a voiceover of Jor-El (Russell Crowe) saying, "My son, our world is no longer safe for you." Suddenly, one of the planets explodes and a small ship is seen zooming out of the flames, and the camera pans around it to face it flying away. Shot of Jor-El and Lara placing a young baby into a ship. "We have been hit by an unexpected force." Shot of General Zod leaping off of a low bridge with a sword, about to hit Jor-El who is holding a shield. The bridge has been sliced in half, as the front is smoking red.

New Shot: The spaceship flies quickly past some satellites. The camera pans around to reveal that it is entering Earth's atmosphere (BTW, that deep "bbboooowwww" sound that keeps on being in trailers for action movies is present in this trailer). Shot of scientists looking at scans, seeing an unidentified object entering Earth. Then the ship crashes into the Kent Farm, with dirt flying everywhere. Different shot of lots of trucks driving down a road. Jonathan and Martha Kent race out of their house and look down at the ship. Jonathan mutters, "What is that....?" The ship starts to make noises and show strange languages appearing above it. The Kent's stand back. The roof of the ship slides back and a chair is erected up, with a small child sitting on it.

A voiceover of Martha Kent, as clips appear. "When you were a child Clark, well, the easiest way to put it was that you were special". Shots of Clark lifting the car off the ground for Jonathan to get underneath and fix it, Clark in school spinning a pencil in the air using telekinesis and finally Clark standing in his room with a strained expression, pointing his head upwards. The camera directly faces his feet firmly on the ground, before they rise about an inch. "You could do things that the other kids couldn't." A bus is falling off of a bridge, and a teenage Clark is seen in the window, looking panicked. Shot young Lana Lang looking terrified. Suddenly the bus stops. The camera pans down to the bottom to show Clark floating in mid-air holidng it up. "Which caused friction with the other kids." Clark is being cornered in the school park and beaten. A new shot of an adult Clark wearing a cap and grimy brown jacket standing in an alleyway, he then pulls up his hood and walks away. "You were extraordinary. You could do amazing things. You were a Superman." New shot of Martha talking to adult Clark in the kitchen. "I know all of this. But why? It's been kept from me all my life. I'm about to go out into the world, and I'm not leaving until I know what they are." "Clark, that's the reason you're leaving." Clark walks into the barn and takes his old ship out of a crate. There are a quick-cut shots of him watching videos, reading documents etc and looking worried.

NEW SHOT: Clark dives into the water in an icy area shirtless. He walks into a massive ice hall (Fortress of Solitude). Clark is in an igloo with an old man, warming their hands over a fire. "We don't get much visitors here. Why are you here?" Clark sits back and says, "I have powers. Unimaginable powers. And I don't know what to do with them." A rock music track starts playing. A plane lands on the runway and Clark walks out. New shot of him pulling a blue outfit out of his ship, with the 'S' emblem. The camera zooms in and the shot changes to a man falling out of a vortex and into a building, looking dirty and rugged. It's Zod. Superman is flying in the sky and flies down, using heat vision to attack an unknown flying thing infront of him (Probably Zod but I don't actually know). The Kent's rushing out of their farm and trying to get into the bunker as a massive Tornado sweeps across the land. Superman flying through different buildings and smashing through the windows, holding a strange monster just bigger than Supes. Superman straight falling off of a mountain (aerial view, shot straight down) and then edging forward in the air, before he is fully flying. Clark Kent talking to Lois Lane in the Daily Planet. "So, you're new here. Good luck trying to get anything first, I'm quick with all the hot scoops." There is then a new shot of stacks of papers being thrown into a van with Clark and Lois standing next to it. On the front of the papers, there's an image of Superman flying through the air with the headline, "SUPER-POWERED VIGILANTE HITS THE STREETS OF METROPOLIS; DUBBED "SUPERMAN". Clark walks away back into the Daily Planet saying, "What was that you said yesterday Lois?" Now it's a montage of shots of Superman punching various different crooks and beating them up. Voiceover of Martha Kent: "I can't believe you're back, it's so surreal." "I discovered my purpose in life. My journey is beginning. And it might have led me to my end." The final shot is Superman and General Zod on the streets of Metropolis, battling using heat vision. The beams are meeting in the middle, and flames are flying all around them. The red light in the middle grows brighter and larger, and consumes the whole screen. The Superman emblem appears, with the words "Man of Steel" written across it. Then the words, "Coming Soon"."

There you go... What do you think?

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.

When can we see this. Possibly with the dark knight
QuietStorm - 2/14/2012, 4:16 PM
Eh, sounds cool, but way to early for a trailer IMO. I think we'll get a teaser poster or something first. They just did the photo shoot right? Something on Variety again for Summer Movie previews.
SHHH - 2/14/2012, 4:16 PM
Cannot Wait..... Bring It!
OdinsBeard - 2/14/2012, 4:16 PM

Natetrix79 - 2/14/2012, 4:17 PM
All these trailers are seriously sick!!! This will be the greatest years in Comic Book MovieHistory baby!
Raptor055 - 2/14/2012, 4:18 PM
Telekinesis? Wtf? Since when? I call BS
vermillion - 2/14/2012, 4:18 PM
This has been my most anticipated CBM since announced... That trailer description sounds so good. Hope it's true.
WolvieCBM - 2/14/2012, 4:19 PM
QuietStorm: Well yeah, I didn't say it will be released now. Like I mentioned in the article, my guess is sometime during the summer.
DaenerysTargaryen - 2/14/2012, 4:19 PM
Bring on the shirtless underwater Cavill scene :D
QuietStorm - 2/14/2012, 4:20 PM
@Raptor055 I was thinking the same thing about the Telekinesis too but earlier today I read this article posted on here and it talks about that being one of Supe's powers.

Sidenote, was CHRONICLE cool or what!
superotherside - 2/14/2012, 4:20 PM
Sounds perfect IMO. Can't wait to see it.

This is what I'm like right now.
Viltrumite - 2/14/2012, 4:20 PM
Telekinesis-pencil-spinning? Why does this not sound legit?
WolvieCBM - 2/14/2012, 4:21 PM
Raptor055: He had that power in some of the comics. It's not new.

ironman53: No, nothing on that. Just that they are working on a couple of edits, and that this is one of them.

" ... spinning a pencil in the air using telekinesis ... "

Since when did Superman have telekinesis?
alex4everdn - 2/14/2012, 4:21 PM
"Clark in school spinning a pencil in the air using telekinesis" WTF!
SageMode - 2/14/2012, 4:22 PM
This sounds awesome. Can't wait to see it
AtomicChipmunk - 2/14/2012, 4:22 PM

Either a reference to Superboy or this is fake!
INSTANTJUSTICE - 2/14/2012, 4:24 PM
Sounds…exactly like what I'd expect which is a bit boring, boring with added speed-ramping.
ManofSteel23 - 2/14/2012, 4:24 PM
erm...telekinesis...WTF!!! I HOPE NOT!!
QuietStorm - 2/14/2012, 4:25 PM
@WolvieCBM I hear ya, just think we'll get a poster first and we've seen a few of these posts in regards to trailer previews that havent panned out. Yours very well likely could, you do awesome work here, I'm just still skeptical about all of the info this early is all. I'd love to be proven wrong because that'll mean we've got a great trailer on our hands. Keep up the good work
SeanTwisted - 2/14/2012, 4:25 PM
I agree.. Going by the 'Telekinesis' bit, I call bullshit. Sounds pretty good otherwise.
DCnerd46 - 2/14/2012, 4:26 PM
WWOOOOOWWWWWWWWW, that is awesome. When does the trailer come out?!?!?! I MUST SEE
MrReese - 2/14/2012, 4:26 PM
Holy Shit!!! 2013 y u so far away :(

Can't [frick]in Wait!!! XD
FightAs0ne - 2/14/2012, 4:28 PM
Oooooo sounds good synder...
CantThinkOfUsername - 2/14/2012, 4:28 PM
I think the telekinesis can go either way.
CantThinkOfUsername - 2/14/2012, 4:29 PM
but it is kind of uncalled for
JDUKE25 - 2/14/2012, 4:29 PM
Sounds sweet. The battle is going to be amazing.
LoneShadow99 - 2/14/2012, 4:29 PM
Awesome!! Also, I thought Clark only had telekinesis over Kryptonian items? Either way....AWESOME! :D
ComradeGrey - 2/14/2012, 4:31 PM
This is so [frick]ing fake. If it isn't, this is the shittiest dialogue I have ever read.
rbfn04 - 2/14/2012, 4:31 PM
"We have been hit by an unexpected force." this makes me think Braniac will be involved in destroying Krypton, maybe? Just, please, don't make Brainiac an AI...
l0rdleg0las - 2/14/2012, 4:31 PM
what the [frick] is this telekinesis shit?

this is supposed to be Superman, not superboy
CantThinkOfUsername - 2/14/2012, 4:31 PM
i hope they give him a golden age Superman fell
CantThinkOfUsername - 2/14/2012, 4:32 PM
@Superman9859 that would be pretty stupid
Jazza815 - 2/14/2012, 4:32 PM
As much as i like this description i doubt highly this will play out

the first trailer should be just like a 20 second teaser to get everybody excited, i doubt we will get a proper trailer until at least August.

It would be pretty stupid to reveal the villain in the first trailer anyway, it builds up much more buzz if they kept it secretive like The Avengers
WolvieCBM - 2/14/2012, 4:33 PM
QuietStorm. Sure, I understand. And thanks.

When I read telekinesis, I was also surprised. But then I thought of John Byrne's run where his ability to fly is described as self telekinesis, and that when he touches some object, it allows him to move it with the power of will.
CantThinkOfUsername - 2/14/2012, 4:33 PM
i ve read this a few times and did it say anything about the S being a family symbol that he is found with as ababy
