New Trailer Tuesday continues. Get ready for Man of Steel.

Remember what I said about this being a great time of year for movie fans? (see The Fall Push for Awards and Blockbusters. Hollywood Hype season is in full swing.) All of those award contenders in release and an onslaught of blockbuster trailers? Let the onslaught continue.

This morning's release of the first feature trailer for Disney's The Lone Ranger is being followed up tonight by the release of the first feature trailer for Warner Borthers' Superman reboot Man of Steel.

The new movie, directed by Zach Snyder, famous for directing the bold strokes of 2006's 300 and a bit infamous for directing 2009's entirely quirky Watchmen and 2011's entirely forgotten Sucker Punch, is scheduled to be released in the US on June 14th next summer.

For my taste, I could leave both the heavy music and serious tone at the door. On the flip side, the film does have an impressive cast surrounding Henry Cavill's Clark Kent. Lending star presence is Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Clark's parents Martha and Jonathan Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Russell Crowe as Superman's father Jor-El and Michael Shannon as General Zod. But so far, nothing from trailers or posters is selling me on Cavill as Superman. What do you think?

It's shaping up to be a busy trailer season.
