‘Superman: Man of Steel’ Trailer Details & Wonder Woman Cameo Rumors

Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, is poised to make a big splash at Comic-Con 2012. A teaser trailer for the film is due to be released online soon, in coordination with the Warner Bros. panel at the Con (which will undoubtedly showcase additional footage from Snyder’s reboot of the Superman movie franchise).

We’ve speculated that Man of Steel could be fashioned as the first installment in a shared DC comics movie universe, following the announcement that Warner Bros. is resurrecting the Justice League film. New reports indicate that is indeed the plan, which puts even more pressure on Snyder to deliver the goods.

Warner Bros. can do its part to help out by getting the marketing for Man of Steel started on the right foot, with the one-two punch of the Comic-Con showing and official teaser trailer release. The teaser has been given a G rating by the Alberta Film Ratings, and is said to be about 1 minute and 27 seconds in length. Snyder’s movies never fail to suffice as feasts for the eyes, so there’s good reason to think the Man of Steel teaser could easily make a strong impression in that brief amount of time (see: the spell-binding Watchmen teaser trailer).

Whether or not the Man of Steel trailer will be an accurate representation of the actual film’s quality, well, we won’t have a concrete answer to that question until next summer.

Meanwhile, CBM has received the following tipoff about how, exactly, Man of Steel might pave the way for future DC movies set in the same universe:

According to our source part of WB’s plan is to use ‘Man Of Steel’ and drop hints that Superman is in a shared universe with his DC counterparts. The hints will be very subtle such as character mentions. The one character that DC is really wanting to reference is Wonder Woman. The source was unclear on if this would be to set up a solo movie for the Amazon Princess or to the Justice League, but with the info that was just posted it seems more likely to be the JLA.

Michael Goldenberg (a co-writer on Green Lantern) is reportedly at work scripting the Wonder Woman movie. However, there’s been some question as to whether DC will imitate Marvel’s approach to building a shared universe and release solo superhero films, as buildup to Justice League. The alternative, of course, is to jump feet-first into a JL movie, and then branch-out into standalone ventures. The latter option would allow the studio to stave off from having to successfully reboot the Superman, Batman, and (possibly) Green Lantern franchises, prior to JL.

Marvel’s Avengers undeniably benefitted from having five movies and four years of anticipation as lead-in. So, if DC elects to not imitate its rival’s strategy for constructing a shared universe, the comic book studio will be banking on Man of Steel having cross-over appeal to the wider moviegoing masses – and, playing well with the immediate fanbase. So, again, all eyes are going to be fixed firmly on Snyder’s project, beginning with the trailer kickoff this week.

For more Man of Steel news, keep a close eye on the Screen Rant Comic-Con page.

Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, and Laurence Fishburne. It is based on a story co-created by Christopher Nolan and Davis S. Goyer (the latter co-penned the script), and directed by Zack Snyder.

Look for Man of Steel to open in U.S. theaters on June 14, 2013.

  1. I am a HUGE DC fan and one sentence in this article really upset me: Michael Goldenberg (a co-writer on Green Lantern) is reportedly at work scripting the Wonder Woman movie. WHY? Why on earth would any company want somebody already known for failure to tackle a new project you’re looking to make huge?!?! When all the DC news came out how they’d invest in the DC characters I was mad reading one of the GL writers would take part. Now I learn it’s WW who is going to take a very special and creative person to create a good story.

    IMO the GL acting was not bad at all and the effects were just fine – it was the story that was absolutely horrible. Horrible, Horrible story & you are going to let someone that helped create that awful story on a bigger project when more marbles are at stake?

    I really hope DC pulls this off no matter the direction & order in which the movies occur but please put your best people forward for crying out loud!

    • Well David S Goyer is responsible for trash like Blade Trinity, Ghost Rider. But on the other side, he had a hand in doing The Dark Knight and TDKR. I reckon they need to pair him up with someone talented who knows his thing like how Goyer teamed up with the Nolan Bros

    • First: Was I the only one who liked Green Lantern?!
      Second: Martin Campbell changed a lot from the original script, so it might not get as bad ratings as Green Lantern did.

      • I liked Green lantern. thought it was a great storyline

        • Green Lantern was a HUGE disappointment.The story was alright except that they made GL a complete whimp for 70% of the movie, which was ridiculous. The movie was edited so terribly that it gave it a bad vibe. The special effects were too bright and childish in some aspects. BUT I would give Goldenberg a chance I believe the director chosen for Green Lantern was a complete bust…BUST. If they are to continue or reboot the series they should have a sci-fi director like JJ Abrams direct the movie to have a more effective transition unto big screen

      • No your not I liked green lantern I thought Ryan Reynolds was a good Hal Jordan/Green Lantern but the special effects of Green Lantern was awful I think they should have build some of the sets than making everything cgi and they should have got a better director like JJ Adams that are good in making a Scifi/action movies and they should of have a much stronger script

  2. When the MOS teaser is released online, I’m not gonna watch it. I want to see it on the IMAX screen before TDKR and really be surprised and blown away.

    • Ditto!
      Can’t compare a computer screen to an IMAX one. Too bad Snyder isn’t filming it in IMAX though.

  3. I think they could pull off a stand alone JL movie with at least a two and half hour runtime. I think it would give each character involved enough screen time. Then do the character spin off solo films after otherwise we’ll be waiting at least 4+ years if they follow Marvels formula.

  4. Let Joss Whedon do Wonder Woman. He spent years trying to get a WW movie made, but the execs wouldn’t do it because the character is a woman.

    • No, he has to direct all coming avengers movies.

  5. I don’t pick sides between DC and Marvel like some people. I want to see both sides succeed.

    One thing that bugs me about the JL (I don’t know much about the comics at all, so I am probably wrong) but, Superman is perfect, right? Strong, fast, has crazy abilities. Basically indestructible. If there is a villain that can actually match Superman one-on-one, how the heck can Batman fight him? Batman has no powers, how does he stand up or help at all against a villain that can beat Superman? Again, this is an actual question.

    • Just because Batman does not have super powers does not mean he’s useless. In the comics, Batman vs Superman, Batman actually defeated Superman. The reason is because he essentially is the world’s greatest detective. He’s also very smart. So he found out Superman’s weakness is Krytonite. He can hold his part of the team, don’t worry :)

      • Batman is, “the man with a plan”. I would bet money on him over Supes any day of the week because he always has something up his sleeve (or in this case belt)

    • I haven’t really read the comics, but from the animated movies he seems to contribute with strategy and cool tech… and by being cynical.

    • One of Batman’s greatest strengths is his ability to find anyone’s weakness. Sure, if he never heard of Darkseid and then meets him in battle, I doubt Batman would stand a chance. But since he has heard of him, and knows what to do to fight him (the comic book version, not live action version), then he can defeat him (or at least make him go back to Apokolypse).

    • Hey! I just wanted to answer your question, because I see only stupid Batman fans actually answer it and that with those classic “Because Batman is the best!” and “‘Cause he’s batman” arguements. Well it’s very clear. When it comes to Hand to Hand fights against let’s say against Doomsday, Batman doesn’t do anything apart from thinking of a plan and getting his ass kicked ^^ But Superman helps him survive of course ’till he comes up with a plan. Well mostly he doesn’t come up with a plan, it just ends by having Superman kicking he supervillains ass. ^^

  6. I enjoy marvel and dc and i am not pick and the new superman reboot movies wil be big hit in 2013 and they will bring other dc heroes live action movies and other superman vilain will bring them to life.

  7. Why are they f****** up s***. First you drop a SuperMan Batman movie then introduce WonderWoman in the second SuperMan Batman movie! Then a JL movie.

  8. Why are they fing up s***. First you drop a SuperMan Batman movie then introduce WonderWoman in the second SuperMan Batman movie! Then a JL movie.

  9. Why are they fing up sh**
    .First you drop a SuperMan Batman movie then introduce WonderWoman in the second SuperMan Batman movie! Then a JL movie.

  10. I am severely disappointed in Warner Bros. I grew up with Justice League and looks like they aren’t going to be doing a good enough job.

    DO SOLO FILMS FIRST

    *Don’t care about if Marvel did it first or not. It was the right thing to do. There was no origin/backstory-exposition for half the movie before they got down to the good stuff. Sure you can say that the cartoons jumped after Batman and Superman right to Justice League, but they didn’t have to limit themselves to 2-3 hours of run-time like this film will.

    *The masses who are ignorant to comics were very important in making Avengers a success. They were cultivated and introduced to the characters through solo films. They didn’t even watch the post-credits scenes and if they did, they didn’t understand them. So for them, it wasn’t about ‘Avengers coming together’, it was ‘Four Superhero franchises crossing over’. It was an event film to them. Trust me, most of them don’t even know that Spidey, and X-Men or any of the DC Heroes won’t be crossing over, because they’re ignorant to contract issues and the fact that Marvel and DC are separate companies. This is why Avengers needs to either negotiate to have Spidey cross over (Fox is too stubborn), or create new successful superhero franchises, to maintain this EVENT feel for the masses rather than fall into the rehash category for them.

  11. Brainiac could be a good way to start the first movie. Doomsday in the second movie removing superman in the third act. Then in the third movie the justice league attempts to picks up the slack believing superman is dead, jl attempts to hold their own against Darkseid until superman has enough time to come back from the dead.

  12. I would love to see a WW (& even a Batman) cameo in the upcoming MoS movie. It would be nice to see a prelude to kick off a DC team up movie, the JLA. But before a JLA movie, I feel DC/ WB need to make a Supes vs. Bats movie and have events in it leading up to a JLA movie. The execs should aim for Supes vs Bat and WW movies for 2014 and JLA for 2015. Or S vs. B and J L movies in 2014 with more than a cameo by WW in S vs. B movie.

    I agree w/ the opposite of a Marvel approach. It can work. Nothing wrong with having a JLA movie w/ brief back stories of The Flash, Aquaman, Martian ManHunter and Green Arrow. Then spin-off some of them in their own movies. Not all the superheroes need a movie of their own. WW, The Flash, Aquaman and Green Arrow should be made into movies. The main challenge would be how many of the main heroes of JL will they be able to feature in the first one? WB/ DC should get screenplay & story writing help from the Nolan bros. to assist the other writers so they don’t screw it up like the Green Lantern movie.

    • There some reason why you felt the need to post the same exact post with 3 different formats?

  15. They are right about Snyder making phenomenal trailers. The trailers for 300 and Watchmen (with the remade Smashing Pumpkins song) are some of the greatest trailers of all time (and 300 and Watchmen were damn good flicks too).

  16. Am I the only person who thinks the idea of multiple superheros in a movie is f*ckin lame?. I don’t ever want to see Superman in a movie with Batman or anyone else.

    • Maybe you’re not the only one but you and those two other guys are severely outnumbered.

  17. Yes, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Aquaman are teaming up together at the Hall of Justice to face off their arch-nemesis enemy Darkseid of Apokolips for taken over Earth. Michael Chikilis who played “The Thing” from the Fantastic 4 films he can make a great villain playing Darkseid. What do everyone think ?

    Ben Kingsley can also play Brainiac and Mark Strong who played Sinestro from The Green Lantern film can he return and face off The Green Lantern.

  18. Geoff Johns and Jeph Loeb did great work on Smallville- it would be nice to see one of them write a Flash movie. Gail Simone should write a Birds of Prey movie.

  19. lol sorry, but the moment I can smell b.s on this report is when the “source” comes from cbm aka comicbookmovie.com which is comprised of plagiarists and fanboys who contribute to articles. Look at the link name above and what does it say square on the middle? FANSITE.

    Just as they posted that Clark Kent makes a cameo in Green Lantern and even TDKR, they’re recycling crap and seeing what sticks to the wall.

  20. Superman in Justice League film won’t be the same for me without the yellow belt & red briefs to break up the blue on the costume. Could of used a red belt atleast. Also feel the cape is too long that it touches the ground all the time.

  21. Here is the supporting characters to the Justice League movie

    Amy Adams as Lois Lane (Return)
    Michael Cera as Jimmy Olsen (Unconfirmed)
    Laurence Fishburne as Perry White (Return)
    Tony Goldwyn as General Sam Lane (Unconfirmed)
    Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth (Return)
    Gary Oldman as Detective Jim Gordon (Return)
    Cate Blanchett as Queen Hippolyte (Uncomfirmed)
    Claire Danes as Athena (Unconfirmed)
    Paul Walker as Steve Trevor (Unconfirmed)
    Kate Hudson as Iris West (Unconfirmed)
    Jennifer Love Hewitt as Tina McGee (Unconfirmed)
    Angela Bassett as Amanda Weller (Return)
    Blake Lively as Carol Ferris (Return)
    Jay O’Sanders as Carl Ferris (Return)
    Kirsten Dunst as Princess Mera (Unconfirmed)
    Taylor Lautner as Aqualad (Unconfirmed)

    • That is total B.S

  22. I feel so bad for the people who try to make wonder woman movies, it just seems like so many times they try to write a script or get a director or do something to stir up that project and they end going through a zillion rewrites and getting into arguments with the studios and people exit the project it’s basically spider-man 4 times a thousand. I really didn’t like Green Lantern at all it really seemed like one of those movies they just forced to try and compete with Marvel, that’s what it seemed like to me, I’m a bigger marvel fan than DC fan but even if I was a die hard DC fan I still think I would’ve disliked it. But im looking forward to Man of Steel it sounds like they really know what theyre doing they’re really into making the film, and they’re working hard and they know what needs to be improved on superman. I hope Wonder Woman has a cameo I actually think she’s a pretty good superherione and I’d like to see her in a shared DC universe. All I can say is that I hope this writer for Wonder Woman doesn’t screw it up, fingers crossed.

  23. Superman nearly kills batman in “Superman : crisis”…… & Darkseid kills batman in “Final crisis” batman is useless (-_-)

    • @Da, to say Batman is useless is completely ignorant. Cases can be made for both Supes and Bats in a one on one confrontation. People love Superman because he embodies the American spirit and is everything we humans are not and fantasize about being. People love Batman because he skillfully and resourcefully accomplishes superhuman feats while being human. Read The Dark Knight Returns, Hush, Tower of Babel, etc. and then tell me Batman is useless.

  24. I fear this Superman is going to as bland and ham-fisted as the Nolan Batman movies.

  25. Supermans greatest competition in the comic books is ICON

  26. I think a Batman and Superman movie would be a great way to go. You could setup Batman/Superman for an ending that shows them starting up the Justice League. Man of Steel, Batman and Superman, Justice League

  27. Gina carano as wonder woman

  28. I personally don’t care for the justice league theyre all just too powerful in the avengers each character had or has a human side which makes them fallible and imperfect and sometimes villains use it as a weakness against them, the justice league is basically a round up of gods and goddesses that are all unstoppable and are all friends i mean every single one of them has powers except for batman and do any of you notice that all their powers are generally the same thing they all have super strength which makes them the strongest beings in the world and they can all fly and therye all bulletproof and they all have super speed, and they all wear the same colors to blue, red, yellow, green i mean theyre all basically the same character whenever i read any of their stuff i just think i really could just read any of their comics and pretty much the same stuff will happen in them. I like Batman as much as the next guy i like him a lot, i think one of the reasons i like him though is because he is not your average DC comics super hero he doesn’t have the same old power because he has none, he doesn’t have the same old origin, he doesn’t wear the same lame colors he is his own thing and its interesting that DC has a character like that. I was actually kind hoping that Superman wouldn’t be in a shared DC universe and i was thanking god when i read an earlier screen rant article about Zack Snyder saying that his superman will be in its own universe like Nolan’s batman because Batman did great when he was just his own thing and not working along with any other super heroes i could never picture Nolan’s batman being in the justice league that just spells terrible to me i don’t see that working at all. I think that if they rebooted DC and actually changed some of the character’s powers around then maybe the League could work better (i didn’t notice any of that in the New 52 which was what i was hoping for) what the DC universe really needs is to take all its characters and have them placed in the real world thats half the reason why everyone likes Batman a lot he is in the real world he isn’t in this little fantasia universe where all of the other characters are from but if DC does that then they might accidentally do whats called make the character interesting lol… and you know thats just not their thing they only want one dimensional stuff thats all they ever give me.

    • This is a real Question. Are you really so immature? Either that or you have no idea about the DC Universe clearly. Or you wouldn’t talk like that…

  29. I have a feeling whether the events of Man of Steel movie and Justice League would be set much before the events of The Dark Knight Rises. You know what I mean.
