While rumors that the first trailer for The Wolverine would premiere before the The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, in theaters on December 14th, have been http://movieweb.com/the-wolverine-trailer-wont-premiere-until-2013-says-director-james-mangold/shot down by that film's director, James Mangold, this morning, another director has confirmed that an even bigger trailer is confirmed for this upcoming release.
Yes, director Zack Snyder has revealed that we will get the first full-length look at his upcoming Superman adventure, Man of Steel, this holiday season, attached to prints of Peter Jackson's epic Middle Earth prequel.
"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 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."
The director also spoke out on Michael Shannon's performance as the menacing villain 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.
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."
The Man of Steel trailer makes its premiere in cinemas December 13th at Midnight. We will have it online shortly thereafter.
