New ‘Man of Steel’ TV Spot Proves Superman Is Humanity’s Savior
The new ad, running a lean 0:30, utilizes the Russell Crowe (as Jor-El) voiceover we’ve heard before, wherein he wonders if a child could be something other than what society intends. Then towards the end, we hear him that goosebumps-inducing thought: “You will give them an ideal to strive towards.”
The “them” in question, of course, being the foolish humans who don’t quite understand Superman and view him as a potential threat, as depicted in the shots of the military placing Superman under arrest.
Also keep your eyes open around the 0:20 mark, as we get what appears to be a new look at a Kryptonian villain (Faora?) walking toward a ship. Said ship then emerges through a fiery blaze in the next shot. Geekout!
Watch for yourself below as ‘Man of Steel’ will strive towards its own greatness on June 14.
