Superman, also known as the Man of Steel, is back in a new movie aptly titled Man of Steel. While the movie won’t be on the big screen until summer 2013, two highly anticipated trailers of one the most recognizable superheros was recently released, depicting two different point of views on Clark Kent.

The two trailers show the same images but feature two different voice overs from Superman’s dads. One is Russell Crowe, who plays Jor-El, Clark Kent’s biological father. The other is Kevin Costner, who plays Clark’s adoptive father, Jonathan Kent. The opposing view points depict one of choice and fate and the images are dark and mournful, showing the human side to Kal-El (Clark’s Kryptonian name).

The trailers portray Clark, played by Henry Cavill, working on a fishing boat and hitchhiking, trying to find himself. In between those brooding shots, Clark is presented as a young boy in the fields of Kansas wearing his improvised red cape and pretending to be a hero. In Papa Kent’s voice over, Clark’s future as a superhero isn’t so clear but there is one thing dad knows and it’s that Clark will change the world.

Jor-El’s narration however describes Clark’s good nature and his fate to help the people even though there are certain challenges he will have to face. As the trailers end, Superman is seen rising in the air, no longer wearing his make shift cape but his real one.

The new movie is directed by Zack Synder (300 and Watchmen) and is produced by Christopher Nolan, the Batman Trilogy director.

Are you anticipating the movie?
