Zack Snyder of 300 and Watchmen fame is directing the new film, while Goyer and Nolan have written its screenplay and story. Hans Zimmer, who provided the score for the recent Batman trilogy, will compose the soundtrack for the new Superman film. The film stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, aka Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent.
Man of Steel is set to release on July 14, 2013. Many fans are hopeful that the Superman franchise will receive the same Nolan treatment Batman was provided, and many believe this film could redefine the character. The tone appears to be much different from previous Superman films, and the original John Williams theme will not be used. The teaser trailer debuted in cinemas across the globe yesterday, marking the end of Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy and the beginning of his and Snyder's new Superman project.
The final trailer has been released:
