Look, ugh, you’re a Kryptonian general just looking for your boy, Kal-El. He’s causing trouble. You just want the people of this big blue marble that he landed on to help you out to find him. If you have to murder a few people – a few million – them’s just the stakes.
I know I’ve said it before, but as lame as Superman is as a superhero, I have been incredibly impressed by Man of Steel. Seeing the last Kal-El trailer in theaters was enough to get me misty-eyed. The Nolans just want to pull off a good Superman origins story (again) and I think that’s fine after the loud thud that was Superman Returns. Michael Shannon as Zod is an amazing pick from here as he highlights this Joker-ish and garbled propaganda trailer for his manhunt for the Steel dude. I’m excited. Palpably.
