New Superman trailer is all kinds of gritty

Boom. Superman is back and judging by the tone of the new Man of Steel trailer he’s about as dark and brooding as Batman with a hangover.

That’s hardly surprising when you consider that Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan is producing the film. Its director Zack Snyder isn’t exactly a stranger to edgy treatments of comic book characters either. His previous credits include work on 300 and Watchmen.

Man of Steel is set to drop in 2013, and already has a Facebook page and a fully fledged website.
