Not long ago, we were graced with the presence of two of the most exciting trailers Ive seen in recent years, and both were for the same movie: The Man of Steel. Some will tell you these trailers are boring oh look, theres a seagull; oh its some rocks, great these people are ignorant.
If youre a fan of Superman, Ill wager that those trailers shook your very foundations. Maybe its just hype, Ive been duped by it before, Im only human after all, but I cant fight the excitement thats bubbling within me for this newest Superman adventure.
Even if youre not hugely sold on the character, surely you can recognise that theres something there, right? I mean, Superman, as a character, is over seventy years old, there have been several movies made and believe me, some of them have been terrible, but still he lives on. People still want to see him made flesh. And millions cant be wrong can they?
Superman means so much, to so many. So much so that when the trailer was first shown at Comic Con, some fans openly wept; finally, a movie viewed Superman in the same way that the fans viewed him. Those trailers are a cathartic validation of our love for the character, and they present us with a lot to be excited about.
