The teaser trailer for Man of Steel, the Superman reboot directed by Zack Snyder of 300 fame and Watchmen and Sucker Punch infamy, has dropped, and it shows a Clark Kent (played by Henry Cavill) wandering in the wilderness, having seemingly abdicated his claim to superhero-dom. (Sort of the same wanderjahr Bruce Wayne undertook in Batman Begins–makes sense, as Christopher Nolan, the Batman franchise director, is co-writer here.) By teaser’s end, though, Kent has become Superman and taken to the skies. Hopes of fans are surely high, given the crashing thud that met the last attempt to reboot Superman, 2006′s Superman Returns.
