Early reaction to Zack Snyder's MAN OF STEEL is said to be highly praise-worthy, with many people suggesting that the rather dreary tone of the trailers we've seen so far is not indicative of the final product itself. Word is that Warner Bros are attempting to draw in the DARK NIGHT crowd by downplaying the comic-book aesthetic, which is odd considering the biggest film of 2012 thoroughly embraced the silliness of the worlds these characters inhabit. We can’t really see Warner Bros making the same mistake they made with the unforgivably dull SUPERMAN RETURNS, so expect the final product to be big on spectacle. Why bother hiring Zack Snyder if you’re not going to let him go crazy with the action? All this waxing lyrical is a long way of saying this new TV spot delivers nothing we haven’t seen before save for the odd, blink-and-you’ll-literally-miss-it glimpses of new footage.

MAN OF STEEL opens in cinemas June 14th.
