A brand new trailer for Zach Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel has arrived online, and apart from some amazing visuals, and a slew of familiar faces including Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon and Russell Crowe, a reluctance to tell people who you really are for fear of being rejected seems to be a major theme throughout these three minutes – and presumably in the movie itself.
Watch as Supe’s mother laments “He’ll be an outcast. They’ll kill him!” before loading him into his Earth bound pod.
“What if a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society had intended?” questions Crowe’s Jor-El in voice over some moments later.
Despite laying it on with a trowel, the trailer does an admirable job at presenting an altogether human superhero, plagued by doubts and insecurities which prevent him seizing his destiny at an earlier age.

Man of Steel, produced by Christopher Nolan, directed by Zach Snyder and starring Henry Cavill in the title role, hits theaters June 14 in the US.
