MAN OF STEEL Trailer Recut With John Williams Score And Marlon Brando

"They can be a great people Kal-El, they wish to be. They only lack the light to show the way..." Zack Snyder's Man of Steel with a classic touch.

I was a little underwhelmed by the domestic and international trailers released for Man of Steel but I managed to snag a look at the SDCC extended trailer before Warner Bros. took them off Youtube and I must say that version is much more awe-inspiring. Now, to no one's surprise, the first teaser trailer has been recut with John Williams original score and Marlon Brando providing the voice over in lieu of Russell Crowe. If you're looking for an example of epic, this is it folks.

You can see the domestic trailer below which has filler music from The Lord of the Rings and Kevin Costner providing the voice over.

Anthrax - 7/24/2012, 8:15 AM
Should have showned the comic con one
Grayson7954 - 7/24/2012, 8:18 AM
the domestic trailer doesnt have a hans zimmer score...hes scoring it currently, so they used filler music for the teaser and its from the lord of the rings soundtrack...
MarkJulian - 7/24/2012, 8:19 AM
@ Grayson7954 You're right.
HelaGood - 7/24/2012, 8:23 AM
i confirm Grayson7954's comment. it's from the scene after Gandalf dies.

not really impressed by the domestic "trailer." i wanted something BIG, not something arthouse.

hopefully the full trailer will knock my socks off. still keeping my fingers crossed...
jedibasswatson - 7/24/2012, 8:24 AM
i hope zack and nolen see this
MartianSupermanhunter22 - 7/24/2012, 8:25 AM
Shouldve started jor-el talking later, not so early.
Matador - 7/24/2012, 8:26 AM
Man I'm starting to hate re-intros to character beginnings how much do we already know them by heart can't they just jump to the meat and potatoes and [frick]ing skip the salad.
hartley07 - 7/24/2012, 8:26 AM
pretty darn good, but its a shame the superman theme kicks in when the camera is zoomed in on the butterfly. lol
rondz123 - 7/24/2012, 8:26 AM
Doesn't fit but I can see what they were going for
codydriscollsrightarm - 7/24/2012, 8:26 AM
I prefer the original version with the Crowe's VO
RedandBlue - 7/24/2012, 8:26 AM
Yeah, the Marlon Brando and classic score make it so cool.
ADDICT - 7/24/2012, 8:32 AM
OKAY I got chills towards the end there but I think the sound could have been done better.
rebellion - 7/24/2012, 8:34 AM
doesn't fit the trailer at all imo
Bodwulf - 7/24/2012, 8:37 AM
Now that gave me chills! See what happens when you use one of the most recognizable and best themes ever (that you own the rights to BTW WB). Instead of the Lord of the Rings music made to emote sadness at the falling of Gandalf. Probably not.........
DK - 7/24/2012, 8:38 AM
I showed my wife the trailer and all she said was "Why did they use the music from after Gandolf dies?" I just stared at her is awe and said, "After watching this, that is all you have to say?" She said "Yeah." and walked off. I liked the trailer because for me, it made me more interested, and got my mind working. Although, when you see Cavill trying to hitch a ride, it made me think of Superman 2 when goes back to get his powers.
MrE - 7/24/2012, 8:39 AM
I'm glad that they haven't gone with the original Williams score for this one. As someone who literally grew up on the Donner Superman films, the original music doesn't allow me to move on. But this was really good. Wow. Great cut.
inky - 7/24/2012, 8:41 AM
now thats a teaser advert and oddly creepy to hear marlon brando and the john williams theme to the new footage.
MJPETTY7 - 7/24/2012, 8:44 AM
Guys, the "domestic" trailer is a TEASER trailer. The teaser from Superman: The Movie only showed actors names and then the \S/ on the screen, do we actually got more in this one than anything we got in the first Superman movie's teaser.
Gonza - 7/24/2012, 8:46 AM
Gonza - 7/24/2012, 8:46 AM
Oh and if u wanna see the comic con trailer
jtown904 - 7/24/2012, 8:47 AM
Classic it is, but i'm deff looking forward to the new music.
BRandom - 7/24/2012, 8:48 AM
I for one, am glad they are rebooting everything ab this, even the music. On the other hand, THAT WAS [frick]ING AWESOME!

Here's hoping 20 years down the road, these movies can be as iconic as the Donner films were
TheDude - 7/24/2012, 8:48 AM
Damn that was cool, almost cried when he started to fly and the music kicks in.
RaleighAntrobus - 7/24/2012, 8:49 AM
Feels a bit dated... I preferred the Costner/Crowe voiceovers with the other score.
CaptainAmerica31 - 7/24/2012, 8:49 AM
I don't see why people don't like the teaser trailer? It's a teaser trailer they're suppose to tease us, the Genreal audience probably had no idea we were getting a superman reboot so I thin it'ls good that they only showed a few things to lets them know we were getting a reboot. The trailer at comic con will be the real trailer, and that's sure to rile up the Genreal audience and audiences alike.
SuperSomething616 - 7/24/2012, 8:51 AM
This just makes my previous case as to why the john williams tunes or a remix of it needs to be used!!!
Ciaran - 7/24/2012, 8:53 AM
Now THAT'S the way to do it! I can't bring myself to accept that John Williams' perfect score will not be in this movie. It was one of my favourite parts of (the not perfect, but not at all bad) Superman Returns.
SamHell - 7/24/2012, 8:56 AM
a little better but......
Spectre94 - 7/24/2012, 8:58 AM
the comic-con footage was brilliant and awe-inspiring. That would have generated more buzz to show this. The current teaser is disappointing
Boyle360 - 7/24/2012, 8:59 AM
That was alright, pretty cool until that part when young clark puts his hands on his hips. It was too cheesy.
The John Williams theme was and always will be brilliant, but it's about time we let it go.
marvel72 - 7/24/2012, 9:01 AM
seeing superman flying with the john williams theme was awesome,really looking forward to the man of steel.

2013 man of steel vs man of iron,which we be better?
Gonza - 7/24/2012, 9:01 AM
@batcavepwnsphonebooth That was a Trailer, this is a Teaser. So i kinda understand why they didnt show all that footage
sups92 - 7/24/2012, 9:01 AM
That fit so perfectly
Spidey91 - 7/24/2012, 9:04 AM
perfect timing
6of13 - 7/24/2012, 9:07 AM
I love the John Williams score but in all honesty it belongs with the Donner films. MoS is a reboot and I am tired of hearing the use of the Willians score used un conjunction with this movie.

I partly agree with Superguy, no more Donner verse or anything associated with it. Please!

Personally, I like the teaser trailers and I liked the SDCC footage even more. I found the teasers to be quite touching.
blvdnoise - 7/24/2012, 9:13 AM
Yes please.
beane2099 - 7/24/2012, 9:16 AM
I'm sorry, but that was GENIUS! SO much better than the actual trailer. It gets the point across and it actually makes you excited for the movie. If I were them, I'd have used that even though they're going to use Zimmer's score.
brickwall - 7/24/2012, 9:16 AM

I agree with everything you just wrote, this Superman film should have no connection to what went before. I think that was part of the downfall of Superman Returns.

The Donner film was great for it's time but we need something new and different. I prefer the real teasers to this one.
BIGBMH - 7/24/2012, 9:17 AM
Pretty good. It works better once it gets to kid Clark with the cape.
