Over a month ago, the viral marketing for Man of Steel started to ramp back up with a message from Michael Shannon’s character, General Zod. The original video was a message for the people of Earth and for Superman himself, Kal-El.
Now, the messages have returned and are appearing in different languages when users visit the official Man of Steel website. The last time these messages presented themselves, a new trailer for the film followed only two days later. A new trailer for Man of Steel trailer has been confirmed by Deluxe and is expected to launch sometime this week and will likely premiere in theaters with The Hangover Part III this weekend.
Hitting 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters, the action adventure also stars Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Russell Crowe, Michael Kelly, Harry Lennix and Richard Schiff.
In Man of Steel, a young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
