Just because we won't be seeing a trailer for The Wolverine with The Hobbit doesn't mean we won't be seeing one for Man of Steel. Zack Snyder has confirmed with MTV that there will be a trailer attached to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and he says it's going to be crazy.
It's fun. I can't wait for The Hobbit, so it will be fun to see our crazy Man of Steel trailer and then enjoy the Hobbit because that's going to be great. It just feels like a fun Christmas thing to do, drag the whole family out for that action.
It's not like we need another reason to see The Hobbit, but it's going to be so freakin' cool to see a full on trailer for Man of Steel. I want to see more! Snyder also went on to talk about Michael Shannon's performance as General Zod.
Shannon is great, he has such great enthusiasm and dedication constantly. You can imagine that you could get actors who go, 'Oh right, it's Zod, it's not 100 percent serious,' or [you can play it] slightly with a wink, there is none of that with him. His effort is to make it realized and to understand this character and what he has to go through, so you have that on one side and you have Henry, who basically is Superman, on the other side and that dynamic.
He went on to talk about working with Henry Cavill and Shannon in the film saying,
I was just incredibly fortunate to play with those guys who really were giving all they had to bring a level of commitment to the scenes they have together so that audiences will get an opportunity to really have their heroes taken seriously. As serious as I was taking it, and I don't mean that from a depressing kind of way but from a, 'This is important and fun and needs to be given the respect that it deserves,' from that perspective it was so exciting to watch them drink the Kool-Aid of that concept and go all the way.
Snyder is currently working on post-production for the film, and he seems extemely excited about it.
I'm super psyched. It's really fun. I have no superhero fatigue.
The film also stars Amy Adams (The Fighter), Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves), Diane Lane (Unfaithful), Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix), Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, Michael Kelly, Richard Shiff, and of course Russell Crowe.
The movie will be released in theaters in 3D on June 14th 2013.
