Man Of Steel Trailer Leaks From Comic-Con

Earlier today, Warner Brothers showed off the Man of Steel trailer at Comic-Con. Though it wasn’t made available online, we did see numerous descriptions and reactions to the footage, all of which have been oh so tantalizing. If anything, the reports have only made us even more eager to see the footage ourselves and now, thanks to a guest in attendance at the panel, we have the trailer itself, in all its low-res glory.

Yes, that’s right. Unfortunately this is not the HD official version, that will pop up on Friday, as the trailer will play in front of The Dark Knight Rises. For now, all we have is a barely viewable cam version that is quite frankly, almost not even worth watching. It’s extremely difficult to make out what is going on but for a film this anticipated and shrouded in this much secrecy, I’ll take what I can get.

I’ve been extremely curious to see what Snyder has been up to with his reboot so for me, any footage I can get my hands on is well worth a watch. I’ve given the trailer a couple views now and though it’s still mighty tough to really see anything, what I am able to see I definitely like.

The music they chose for the trailer is absolutely epic, as is the narration, and there’s a few intriguing images as well, like the one of Superman on fire and the one of the military guards surrounding him.

So, all in all, while it’s not great, it should be enough to tide me over until Friday. Check it out on the next page and let us know what you think.

    The music, the imagery, and the narration are overwhelmingly amazing.

  2. Chris138says:

    The music used in that trailer is “Journey to the Line” by Hans Zimmer from the soundtrack for The Thin Red Line. It was also used in one of the first trailers for Pearl Harbor. Kind of weird to see it used here.

    1. Josh Nitschesays:

      I thought I’d have to wait for the soundtrack. Thanks!!

      1. DorkDadsays:

        Gah! Sorry about the repost. Lo. Gotta read the comments before you try to show off your knowledge. My bad. Bad internet form. (c;

      2. Daniel William Stentzsays:

        I used to think it was weird when i heard the same songs in multiple previews, but aside from the fact that it’s still zimmer’s music, perhaps the real music isn’t finished yet? movie doesn’t come out for another year.

      3. J G d'Estaingsays:

        And You think the soundtrack can beat the Iconic Williams Theme ? pfff…

      4. Hucka Finnasays:

        With time it can. It’s always about time. Time has a way to turn ordinary in to iconic or legendary. It is the great equalizer.

      5. Michael Juliussays:

        My friend, getting people to accept the Williams cues set to newer movies is an impossible feat. You are trying to get little kids to understand how important the main theme is and how it cant be a Superman movie without it. Nobody will ever top The original Superman OST, nobody. +1

    2. Matthew Hernandezsays:

      You may also recognize the music from Inception, because Zimmer uses the exact same chord progression and “theme.”

      1. Geoffrey Shaugersays:

        It’s actually not even close…you might want to either a) get your hearing checked or b) buy some Q-Tips

  3. Duncan Webbsays:


  4. Primesays:

    Duncan you an idiot that was amazing and Hans Zimmer wrote that and he the composer for MOS. So it not weird.

    1. doctuarsays:

      Not even going to point out the irony.

      1. David Leesays:

        I will! He called someone an idiot but did so in a way that actually made him look like an idiot because he is terrible at using proper grammar and spelling!


  5. David Fhimasays:

    Hans Zimmer’s Inception soundtrack sounds very similar to the soundtrack from The Thin Red Line in this trailer

    1. Geoffrey Shaugersays:

      Probably because Zimmer did both

      1. Matthew Hernandezsays:

        And by did you mean Copy pasted it.

      2. Geoffrey Shaugersays:

        I’m sure someone out there thinks Superman is a copy and paste of Star Wars. There’s no accounting for how poor some people’s ears are.

      3. Craig Barnersays:

        I would like to meet these people so I can laugh in their faces.

  6. Billy Morrissays:

    Based on this ‘very blurry’ footage as the assholes at WB block PRIVATE videos (hate that corporate bullying crap) protecting IP’s my ass! #GREED

    Anyway. This just sounds, is narrated and looks like an ABSOLUTE abortion. Batman infused Superman with all of it’s depression. At least Green Lantern was filled with hope, this is just SOOO fucking dismal!!

    Absolute garbage, unless a new ‘clear’ version convinces but I doubt it very much from what little i’ve seen here.

    1. Erick Śolissays:

      Because hey, being an extraterrestrial with super powers on a foreign planet, while finding out that you are adopted and that the whole world can turn on you while looking for your place as a person on a weak constructed society is supposed to make superman happy then I guess you are right. Superman is the image of hope, but in order to get there you have to see where is it he comes from, his personal conflict. That’s proper storytelling, something I doubt you know little from.

      I found this blurry footage completely amazing. Well acted, beautifully shot, great dialogue, great drama and character conflict that seems to drive an actual story rather than setting a film up for action set pieces. The score is from a previous Zimmer film, and if this is any director for his new take for this film, we are for something big here.

      1. spiewak7says:

        I agree , you are absolutely right. That guy billy morris is an idiot

    2. Big Larry Kitchen Knifesays:

      You’re just a dick.

    3. Vryussays:

      Superman is dark and always has been because the only thing
      keeping him from destroying the world is the morals that his human parents
      instilled in him. I hate to mention it
      because so many purists dislike it (like my father), but the quintessential storyline
      for me personally is the Apokolypse Now storyline from the Superman Animated
      Series that showed just how powerful he is when unleashed from his own morals.

      Superman is a dark and tragic character. He provides hope because he overcomes that
      darkness every day.

      1. Hoeysays:

        That was my FAVORITE! Episode . His speech gave me chills. I’ve held back for so long afraid of hurting someone ………. I am a HUGE Superman fan and despite all these changes I will always be a fan regardless through the good and the bad now everybody sit down shut up and wait for the movie and hold judgement til the credits.

  7. DorkDadsays:

    The music is from “Thin Red Line” by Hans Zimmer (most recently of “The Dark Knight” fame). It’s a piece that’s been used in trailers all over since its initial release in 1999. It was most effectively used in the “Pearl Harbor” trailor. If you happen to have the CD, it’s track #3 “Journey To The Line”. I’m sure someone’s got it uploaded on YouTube. Enjoy.

  8. Anthonysays:

    despite them screwing up the suit and things, we shall see.

  9. J G d'Estaingsays:

    There is only one Superman film, it was done at the right moment in timeby Richard Donner. This film, which, if the producers hasn’t wanted to get so much money in cuting the film in two parts, instead on one of 3 hours full movie as it was intended to be done, could have been an unsurpassable super hero movie ever.

    1. mr.csays:

      “i only like the old stuff everything new sucks because it just does”

    2. MiztuhXsays:

      Agree with you whole-heartedly. Superman, the comic-book hero and Superman: The Movie, are the grand-daddy of them all! All heroes derive from Superman, period.

  10. Yezid Ramirezsays:

    I now know what i have to do?

  11. jsavaksays:

    Can’t see anything … Video was taken down?

    1. Mattsays:

      Nope, still there.

  12. jsavaksays:

    excellent writing !! And superb score …I just don’t like cavill and the lois lane actress

  13. camlabarsays:

    the music was also used in inception. ” Time ” is the song title in inception. So now thats Inception, Pearl harbor, The thin red line and Man of Steel

    1. Geoffrey Shaugersays:

      This track was never used in Inception…the two are similar but not identical

      1. camlabarsays:

        Youre right my bad.

  14. Yashalsays:

    The flight scene looked breathtaking,

  15. Alexsays:

    The music is only a placeholder, folks.

  16. Marco DeLausays:

    its not the official trailer Snyder said at the hall that”why give the fans at SDCC something everyones going to see?” its his own cut n paste cenes f the movie…not the official trailer, they didnt show that

  17. Bubbasays:

    Has the vid been taken down I can’t watch it?

  18. Batmansays:

    Saw it, Looks… more serious than the original superman film series. But I do believe they’re going in the right direction. There was one “Superman in action” scene…. sort of, superman is rocketing into the sky and seems to be pushing through the atmosphere at high velocities.

  19. Superman426says:

    As we have all grown up with Superman in our lives, it is nice to see a change that can apply to our time. WB pisses me off with not sharing the Comic Con trailer, but from what can be seen I think this will be a new pinnacle for how the Superman story will be told.

  20. Music is from end scene Lord of the Rings 1. Not thick red line or anything else…..
