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'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.
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).
In addition to the spectacular line-up of celebrities and pulse-poundingcategories, the 2013 MTV Movie Awards will contain never before seen footage of "Iron Man 3." As the film is still a few weeks away from its release date, the MTV Movie Awards are guaranteeing that you will get your needed dosage of Tony Stark action. 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.
The first three minutes cover "Iron Man 3," with new interviews and behind the scenes footage about the upcoming film, and the last two dive into the rest of Phase Two, with a taste of Phase Three's "Ant-Man" thrown in as well. Check out the full featurette and tons of new concept art, featuring detailed looks at Ant-Man, the Winter Soldier, Rocket Raccoon and Falcon, below.
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.
