Clark Kent is believed to be the guardian angel of the people of Earth and destined to give them 'an ideal to strive towards.'
A new trailer for director Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" has been released on the web. The video takes fans to see how Clark Kent has been searching for the ultimate reason of his existence on Earth since childhood and tries to fulfill his destined duty. Rather than a mere superhero, the red cape-donning man is seen as a mythical, legendary figure.
Born in Krypton and sent to Earth by his father Jor-El, Kent grows up knowing that he possesses superhuman abilities, which he tries hard to hide. The trailer then lets several characters speak about his existence on Earth, saying that he is "the answer" and "the guardian angel" of the Earth people.
Near the end of the trailer, a humorous scene of Kent and Lois Lane is previewed. When asked about the meaning of "S" on his blue costume, he explains that the letter means "hope," hinting at the purpose of his existence on Earth. Lane quickly responds to it with a joke, "Well, here it's an S."
The Warner Bros. film stars Henry Cavill as the superhero and Amy Adams as Lois Lane. Additionally, the cast ensemble includes Michael Shannon as the villain General Zod, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent.
The superhero film is set to hit U.S. theaters on June 14.
