‘Man Of Steel’ Trailer Opts For Alternate Voice-Over -----

Jul 25, 2012 at 10:50 AM | RadioDanny  in Voiceovers

Just a day or so ago we brought to you the first teaser trailer for the big screen return of Superman in Man Of Steel. Voiced over by Kevin Costner, playing the hero’s adopted human father Jonathan Kent, the footage gave just a hint of what we can expect from next year’s anticipated release. To add to that, a new second teaser has been released, boasting no new footage but simply an alternate voice-over from Russell Crowe, representing Superman’s Kryptonian father, Jor-El.
Whilst many will be scratching their heads in puzzlement over the marketing decision, it does seem a logical and intriguing option adopted. The differing trailers do offer the suggestion that the family dynamic surrounding Clark Kent (Henry Cavill), or Kal-El if you are Kryptonian, will remain a focal point in Man Of Steel, with Clark’s emotions thrown into play with his two fathers at the forefront of his mindset and life decisions.
Personally, the influence (and possible opposition) of both fathers becoming somewhat of a difficulty to choose between for Clark, would enable the film to garner some much needed realism and throw emotional grit into the proceedings – something that has proven successful in the likes of the Batman trilogy of late.
They will stumble. They will fall…In time, they will join you in the sun.
If Jor-El’s words are an early indicator, Man Of Steel is set to be unleashed on an epic scale and revitalise another of DC Comics’ trademark heroes.
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Kevin Costner, Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe and Amy Adams, Man of Steel is out 14 June 2013.
