Man of Steel: General Zod threatens earth to return Superman in new trailer


A new trailer for the Superman reboot Man of Steel has been released today.

The trailer, called “Fate of Your Planet”, focuses on the villainous General Zod as he tries to wage war against planet earth to get Superman back to his universe.

The film charts the story of Clark Kent, a boy who learns he has extraordinary powers. As a young man he tries to discover where his powers came from, but in doing so he realises he must save the world from destruction and become the “symbol of hope for all mankind”.

Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (The Tudors, Immortal) in the title role, alongside Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner and Amy Adams.

The film will be released in the UK on 14 June.
