Man of Steel - New TV Spot and Synopsis Hits the Web
Check out the first TV spot for Man of Steel! Okay, I admit the spot's low on new footage, but we get a couple of images that we haven't seen before. I gotta say, Warner Bros. is playing it pretty cool with the promotion of Zack Snyder's and Christopher Nolan's Superman reboot. We're only two months from opening day and we still have only about three minutes of scenes from a nearly three hour movie.
With all the trailers so far, we've only been treated to two superheroic scenes - Supes taking off in flight and crashing into the bank vault. Oh well, I guess it's better to be patient than to have all the good stuff spoiled before the flick hits.
Have a look at the spot and let me know what you think.
After the video, scroll on down and peep the new plot synopsis courtesy of ManOfSteel.com.
