The third full-length "Man of Steel" trailer has arrived and man-oh-man does it deliver. Whereas previous trailers and TV spots have been criticized for being a bit to mopey, this one absolutely soars. Yes Clark Kent is angsty, being pulled in different directions by a father who wished him to be a champion of Earth and a father who wanted to protect him from Earth. Despite that, The tone of the entire 3-minute clip is entirely different. It's optimistic, almost triumphant. Hans Zimmer's score is the real star here, as it pushes "Man of Steel's" scope outward past the narrow moods of our first glimpses. It's percussive and epic. It's a theme that sounds like a theme. Is it sacrilege to say that John Williams finally has some competition here?

See and hear for yourself by checking out the full trailer.

Electro

by Brett White

Hello, Electro! Just a few days after picking up the MTV Generation Award at this year's MTV Movie Awards, Jamie Foxx was caught filming "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" in the middle of Times Square in his Electro makeup. I'm pretty sure this shoot took place in the actual Times Square and not the elaborate set recreation in Bethpage, NY, unless director Marc Webb is busing in fans and photographers to document the recording process. So this means that Jamie Foxx made his big debut as Electro just outside our offices and I didn't even catch it.

Electro's look is a drastic departure from the comic, but considering the 2-D Max Dillon wears a green spandex jumpsuit and an enormous lightning bolt mask, this update makes perfect sense. You can make out some lightning bolt-ish veins on Foxx's face, which is a nice nod to the character's signature mask. The makeup itself looks great, so I can't wait to see how it looks on the big screen.

It may not have much in the way of clear footage, but this new TV spot for "Man of Steel" still sheds a lot of light on the upcoming Superman film. The clip features an ominous, static-y image of General Zod wearing his alien helmet and giving Superman an ultimatum. The ultimatum threatens to put the people of Earth in harm's way, thus giving us a glimpse at Zod's master plan. Just judging by this threatening voice over alone, "Man of Steel" seems to have much more punching-potential than "Superman Returns." The spot also ditches the previous trailers' more contemplative and serious tone, switching that out for a creepier, more thrilling angle. I have to say, this is the clip that finally got me excited about "Man of Steel."

Check out General Zod's full message below.

If you missed out the exclusive "Iron Man 3" clip debuted during last night's MTV Movie Awards, you're in luck! The clip is online and awesome. The awards show, which gave "Marvel's the Avengers" a Quinjet full of awards, contained an extensive look at the assault on Tony Stark's oceanside property. The clip gives us a look at Tony Stark's new prototype armor and features one of the most original uses of a grand piano ever captured on film.

Check out the full clip below!

Man of Steel

by Brett White

The promotion around "Man of Steel" is starting to heat up, with the Zack Snyder film's first TV spot debuting just a few days before this issue of Entertainment Weekly hit the stands. The issue seems heavy on the "Man of Steel" content, with Henry Cavill's Superman taking over the cover. The magazine also contains seven new photos from the upcoming film, including clear shots of General Zod and Perry White, and another two glimpses of Amy Adams as Lois Lane (including one where evil Kryptonian Faora is getting a bit too close).

Check out all of the pictures below.

To whet your appetite for this weekend's never before seen footage, check out the teaser below. The clip acts as a "greatest hits" montage of all the amazing "Iron Man 3" footage we've seen so far, and features a monologue from the Mandarin (oh, to hear new words said in Ben Kingsley's signature tone) wherein the bad guy gives Iron Man a choice.

Marvel

The Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled Blu-ray box set is the gift that keeps on giving. It's already given us "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" concept art and an "Iron Man 3" featurette today. It looks like the Thor corner of the box set contains a first look at the filming of this November's "Thor: The Dark World," which has since made it's way to Tumblr in GIF format (because of course it did). Not only that, but more GIFs featuring new shots from "Iron Man 3" have surfaced, as have moving versions of all the concept art AND a cool animation of Captain America jumping out of a Quinjet.

This is a GIF wall you don't want to miss!

Guardians

by Brett White

GeekZenith has revealed four new concept images from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Guardians of the Galaxy." They come via the just-released Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled Blu-ray box set. One image clearly depicts how they're translating the Winter Soldier character to the big screen (by seemingly not changing a thing). Another, as seen above, captures "Guardians of the Galaxy's" "Star Wars vibe". The other two photos reveal an otherworldly landscape and a spaceship; both could be from "Guardians," but it'd be unwise to rule out "Thor: The Dark World."

Check out all four images below.
