"Man of Steel" proved that the third time's a charm for Amy Adams, who discussed how her approach to auditioning for Lois Lane this go round differed from her previous two.

"I think that I definitely was at the right time to try something new," she says. "I think had I done it in the past I would have been trying to emulate something I saw or one of the comics as opposed to creating something new." You can check out the interview below.

Adams also discussed her history with Superman in a recent appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Her first crush, she told Kimmel, was actually Christopher Reeve who portrayed Clark Kent in four films, starting with 1978's "Superman." She also revealed that her appearance on "Smallville" was at least partially fueled by her Super crush.

"Man of Steel" opens on Friday, June 14th.

The only way to pump up anticipation for "Man of Steel" after that killer last trailer would be to release a dizzying spectacle of a scene. And, well, that's just what this is. The first 20 seconds of this new clip from "Man of Steel" is more intense and personal than anything we've seen before. Check it out now, unless you want to save this jaw-dropping action piece for the big screen.

Even if he spends all of this clip getting punched in the helmet and then falling to the ground in pain, General Zod still comes across as a menace. I mean, going after Kal-El's human mother? That's nothing but trouble, Zod!

If this clip is any indication, and I think it might be, we're in for a Superman film that delivers on the action in a big way.

Welcome to Level 7... again. A new TV spot for ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." aired during the NBA finals aired over the weekend, condensing the previous trailers into one quick 20 second montage. The only new footage in the quick spot, which still does a great job of hyping us up for the series, is the reveal of a mystery hologram man being analyzed by Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker). Check out the TV spot, and then take a peek at the man in question after the jump.

Ever since Marvel Studios made the bold move to tie all of their solo hero films into one shared universe, leading to the massive team-up in last year's "Marvel's the Avengers," DC Comics fans have been clamoring for something similar to happen for their favorite heroes. It didn't happen in Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy, but Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" might give fans a little bit of what they've been looking for. And that's how Snyder likes it, as he related to MTV News in the video below.

"There's no conference I have with DC where we sit down and go like, 'Is there any way we can get LexCorp [in the movie], or Wayne Enterprises?' I just am like, this is cool stuff and we need to put it in the movie. It shows that there's a big DC universe out there and anything's possible as far as that goes." Snyder does say that there's not much to read into regarding the Easter eggs he carefully placed in "Man of Steel," but that shouldn't stop fans from speculating.

Check out the video below for this and some of Snyder's thoughts about "Justice League."

FROM MTV GEEK

Yeah, people are pretty excited about "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", Marvel's first foray into modern live action television. People are excited to see Coulson back, they're excited about Ming-Na Wen's new character. Yes, those are true statements. But more than anything, people are excited to find out who J. August Richards is playing. Anticipation has built up around his character so much that pretty much every interview tries to get to the bottom of this mystery. MTV Geek sat down with the man himself in an attempt to break the actor's vow of silence. Did they...?

What can I possibly write about this "Man of Steel" trailer that you can't get just from skipping ahead and watching it right now? Could I write about how gorgeous every shot is? How it hints at an intense feud between Jor-El and General Zod? How Hans Zimmer has created a score that could go down in history as one of the greatest superhero scores of all time? That it sets up stakes that are impossibly large and can only be met head-on by a man that is so believably relatable and grounded? How it makes this seem like the biggest, most important film event since "Avengers"? That it basically sums up everything we've come to love about superhero films in one mostly dialogue-less montage? How it could be used for decades to come as the example of how to make a perfect trailer? That it still has that creepy shot of Superman drowning in skulls?

All of this is conveyed in this trailer. Just watch it. Right now.

June 14th, you know where I'll be.

There are very few roles that come with as much scrutiny as Superman, if any actually even come close. So when "Man of Steel's" leading man, Henry Cavill, took on the role, he knew that the world's attention and 75 years worth of passionate fans would be on him. The actor sat down with MTV News and discussed when the enormity of his new alter-ego hit him, and how he dealt with it.

"We all have bad days," Cavill says after relating what it was like to shoot in a town proud to be the film's Smallville. "We all have days where we're not feeling one hundred percent, especially on a six month shoot with fifteen hour days. And it was the memory of that kind of stuff [in the town that made me think] 'You're not allowed to have a bad day, Henry.' You've got to do this."

Spoken like a true Superman, am I right? Check out the full interview below.

We speculated a while ago that Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy would grow up a bit for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," and now there's a video that confirms our hunch. Here's a low quality sneak peek at our protagonists' high school graduation, complete with Gwen Stacy's valedictorian speech and Peter Parker picking up his diploma in style. Of course, the contents of the video could be considered foreshadowy spoilers, so beware. We'll get into the maybe spoilers after the jump.

After appearing on "Ellen," "Man of Steel" actress Amy Adams stopped by for a lengthy chat on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Kimmel kicked off the interview by mentioning that Superman fans had lined up early to get a chance to see Adams on the show. After mentioning that the fans seem to have latched on to Adams as Lois Lane before even seeing the movie, Adams joked that she's not going to get half the attention that Superman is.

"I think Henry's in for it," Adams says of co-star Henry Cavill, "because he's really something." Adams then tells a story about her first day on the "Man of Steel" set after having just wrapped up filming the intense drama, "The Master." Her first day as Lois Lane saw the actress face to face with Henry Cavill in full Superman-mode, dangling from a wire after having just met. You can check out the first part of the interview below.

The next two parts can be found below, and contain a new Lois-centric clip from the film.

A rare non-Superman centric clip from "Man of Steel" debuted on "Ellen" today, alongside an appearance by Lois Lane herself: Amy Adams. The clip shows Lois getting a stern talking to from Daily Planet Editor-in-Chief Perry White, played by Laurence Fishburne.

Listen, I may not know exactly what Lois did to make Perry angry, but this clip is great and I can't wait to watch it in the context of the entire movie. We've already seen from previous trailers that this summer's Superman film has the Kryptonians on lock. Superman looks great, Zod looks menacing, and Faora is surprisingly sinister. But this clip shows that director Zack Snyder has also put equal amounts of care into the human half of the film. Seriously, I could watch Adams and Fishburne bicker and banter back and forth for a whole movie. Consider it, Warner Bros.

Check out the clip below!
