Godzilla & Superman at Comic-Con!!!!
Yesterday we were treated to some good information concerning two of my most favorite fictional characters. Superman and Godzilla. A teaser trailer for both were presented although they are not on line yet. But a poster for each has been released. Here are the posters and a description of each of the trailers.
Man of Steel
“This looks VERY different from Superman films of the past
None of the trademark Snyder shots in the trailer. No slo-mo or shuttery frames
We see flashes of Smallville. The farm house. Clark running in a red cape as a child.
An older, bearded Clark walks a snowy road in an arctic town.
We hear Russell Crowe’s voice talking about children being inspired to greater things
It sounds like it’s cut with Kevin Costner’s voice. Both fathers are giving Clark/Kal advice on how to become who he wants to be
We see Clark being brought to the Kent barn and shown the spaceship that has been hidden there
Clark holds a small piece of metal with the S logo on the end
We’re jumping back and forth through time periods
Clark, as a teen, saved a bus of kids
The bus crashed in the water and we see him swimming, pulling the door off.
“People are afraid of what they don’t understand,” says Costner
We see Clark talking to Jor-El. They’re standing right in front of one another, but I think it’s a holographic projection (though it looks live)
We see Superman in the suit. First from a distance and then walking across a snowy plain
There are flashing of Superman flying and one of him catching someone falling off a building
A single flash of Amy Adams’ Lois Lane
One flash has Superman (in costume) — seemingly in handcuffs — being led down a hallway by a security force
We see Clark (without seeing his face) stepping into an elevator and begin to lift glasses to his face
There’s a flash of Clark, shirtless, with his whole body on fire
Another of him crashing into the bank vault we saw in the first still. It looks like he’s been thrown.”
There’s a major discussion in the narration about the world turning against Superman because they don’t trust him if he ever appears
We also hear a woman’s voice saying “My son saw what Clark did on that bus.”
Apparently someone witnessed young Clark as a child saving the bus with his powers
There’s a flash of Zod, but literally so fast you just see his face
The opening WB and Legendary logos are B&W with a font like original Japanese writingThe footage pans across a city that has been utterly destroyed.
We hear a voice over a radio talking (the voice of Robert Oppenheimer) about the end of the world.
It looks like another giant creature’s body is in the wreckage.
We hear the classic Godzilla scream from the smoke, we see something enormous. We’re following a camera up Godzilla’s back, showing his scales.
We see his face, but it’s almost a silhouette. It looks a LOT like the classic Godzilla design but with a slightly fatter face.
I cannot wait until these trailers are released!!!
Man of Steel hits theaters on June 14, 2013. No release date for the Godzilla film though. 😦 It hasn’t even been cast or filmed yet but I am glad to know the project is sill moving ahead!
