That one "Man of Steel" trailer has sure left a mark on pop culture, hasn't it? Rightfully so, as it's still as powerful and perfect a trailer today as it was when it first debuted. Mash-ups and edits have been popping up all over the place, like this one done in Minecraft. This new one comes from the Hub Network and edits footage from the 54 episodes of "Superman: The Animated Series" into a near shot-for-shot remake of the film's trailer. But here's the kicker: it got original voice actors Tim Daly and Dana Delany to reprise their roles as Superman and Lois Lane. And Christopher McDonald came back to play Jor-El, as did Mike Farrell return to voice Jonathan Kent. Come on, how awesome is that?
Check out the animated trailer below, and keep getting psyched for "Man of Steel," which opens this Friday!

Citizens of Riverdale! You can officially downgrade your threat-level as far as zombie apocalypses are concerned. Though "Afterlight with Archie" is very much still a reality, the zombie-infused "Archie" comic book won't serve as the basis for the recently announced "Archie" movie.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla, the writer-artist team behind the alternate universe "Archie" comic, recently spoke with Hero Complex about unleashing the armies of the dead against Archie and his pals. During the interview, Aguirre-Sacasa denied the rumors that "Afterlife" was the launching point for the new "Archie" movie.
"The movie and this series are completely separate entities," he said, adding that he and Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater have been "talking about the movie for a while now."
Is "Man of Steel" more powerful than a locomotive? All eyes will be on the box-office this weekend to answer that question as the Superman reboot storms into theaters. But regardless of the answer, we now know this: the sequel is coming our way, faster than a speeding bullet.
Deadline reports that Warner Bros. is already fast-tracking a "Man of Steel" sequel before the first film has even arrived in theaters. Two of the film's most important ingredients are already said to be in place: Zack Snyder returning as director and David S. Goyer back as screenwriter.
Ask any random person on the street and they'll more than likely tell you how excited they are for Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel." Although the last "Superman" movie was released only a few years ago, people just can't seem to get enough of the Last Son of Krypton.
As any Superman fan can tell you, a Superman movie isn't quite complete without a few classic Superman tropes. First and foremost, somebody has to mistake him for a bird and somebody else has to mistake him for a plane. Secondly, he has to leap a tall building in a single bound. Click past the jump for more classic "Superman" archetypes that we hope show up in "Man of Steel"!
Time Magazine got some face time with Joss Whedon to promote his new film, "Much Ado About Nothing," and the conversation inevitably ended up where convos with Whedon always end up: superheroes. That's fine, though, because it allowed for Whedon to go into detail about the genre and how he interprets it. After giving praise for Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man," Whedon turned his attention to Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight."
"It felt to me, when I saw 'The Dark Knight,' it was like we'd gone past [the superhero film],
says Whedon. "It was like, 'We understand superhero movies now, I'm going to make 'Godfather' with superheroes. [It was] the post-superhero era. And I was like, 'Whoah, wait a minute! I still want to see the hero part. I feel like the great superhero movies have yet to be made, so let's not deconstruct them completely just yet."
"Marvel's the Avengers" came across at times as a counterpoint to "The Dark Knight," proving that a film can be as great while still embracing comic book style heroics. This quote seems to indicate that this very notion was on Whedon's mind while he crafted his first superhero film. Whedon also talks about growing up in a family full of television writers, his reputation as a character killer (one he's tired of, BTW), what makes vampires an everlasting pop culture phenomenon and much more in this info-packed interview. Check it out below.
"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.

As you all know by now, Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" promises to be a fresher, more modern take on Superman while also potentially acting as a jumping off point for a much greater DC Cinematic Universe. In a recent interview with MTV News, Snyder dropped several big hints as to which key DC buildings may or may not be appearing in "Man of Steel," like LexCorp and Wayne Enterprises.
That said, can you imagine how crazy it would be if S.T.A.R. Labs made an appearance in the film as well? For those of you unfamiliar with the aforementioned reference, S.T.A.R. Labs is a fictional research facility that first appeared in "Superman" #246 but has since gone on to appear in popular DC TV series, such as "Smallville," and another not so popular DC TV series... "The Flash."
