Man of Steel Trailer Before Dark Knight Rises Confirmed

Movie fans in Australia will get to see The Dark Knight Rises a whole one day earlier than the rest of us (good cause to hate the Aussies right now), and consequently, they will get the first theatrical viewing of the Man of Steel trailer.

Superman Homepage has learned that Hoyts Cinema and Event Cinemas, two bigger chains Down Under, confirm that Zack Snyder‘s teaser for next summer’s franchise starter will play before showings of Christopher Nolan‘s franchise ender.

This confirmation of what we heard a couple days ago should hardly be viewed as shocking. These are both huge Warner Bros. and DC Comics properties, and seeing as the teaser will inform millions about Man of Steel, studio execs on both sides are likely hoping the promise of a better Superman will tide over Batman fans mourning the end of the Nolan era (and take their money in the process).

If you need another reason to believe this report, four years ago, a teaser for Snyder’s Watchmen played before The Dark Knight.

The Dark Knight Rises opens in less than a week, on July 20th, 2012, while Man of Steel arrives June 14th, 2013.
