The future of the struggling Superman franchise is alive and well, according to the latest trailer for Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot, Man of Steel.
The film re-tells the story of how Jor-El (Russell Crowe) sends his son Kal-El to Earth to escape the destruction of their home planet of Krypton.
The boy is taken in and raised by Jonathan and Martha Kent (Kevin Costner and Diane Lane), discovering that he has extraordinary powers and struggling to figure out what his purpose is on Earth.
The new trailer gives a little more to go on that the previous two, showing more of Krypton, revealing Clark Kent's (Henry Cavill) journey to find the reason he was sent to Earth. We also get some glimpses of the Man of Steel in action, and he reveals that the "S" on his suit doesn't stand for "Superman" -- but is the Kryptonian symbol for "hope."
Lois Lane (Amy Adams) also appears in the new clip, and the film's baddie, General Zod (Michael Shannon), reveals his intentions.
"Man of Steel" was co-written by Christopher Nolan, who revived the Batman franchise with his Dark Knight trilogy.
The film opens June 14. Check out the trailer below...
