The last and latest trailer of Man Of Steel, the Superman reboot is out and it reveals quite a bit. Beginning with his birth when Jor-El (Russell Crowe) holds him in his arms, the trailer goes all the way till the time Superman is interrogated.

And the best part is that this final trailer shows the first snatch of dialogue between Superman and his Lois Lane, Amy Adams. The dialogue is as follows:

SUperman"What's the S stand for," Adams asks at the end of the teaser trailer.
"It's not an S. On my world it means 'hope,'" a caped Superman responds.
"Well, here it's an S," says Adams, "How about, 'Sup-"
But before she can finish, a burst of feedback cuts her off.

The background score plays a major role in the mood of the film. No points for guessing the music is by Hanz Zimmer, the composer of the Christopher Nolan series of Batman.

The slightly over three minutes trailer is unusually long for film trailers and reveals almost the entire plot. Uploaded by Warner Bros just some hours back, the videos had over two lakh clicks at the time of publishing the story.

More on the film
Zack Snyder is hoping his Superman reboot Man of Steel turns out to be not just a blockbuster, but a movie with a capital M.

There are panoramic aerial battles on Krypton, there are touching moments between young Clark Kent and both his biological and adoptive fathers, there are close-ups of a fist pounding into ice, and there is lots and lots of big-budget flying.

"I wanted the movie to be a big movie-going experience, full of action, full of emotion and full of the biggest super hero in the world," Snyder said Tuesday before giving the Las Vegas movie theater convention CinemaCon a brief glimpse. "I wanted to give to the cinemas of the world a big, giant 'movie' movie."

The film follows in the modern tradition of the naturalistic superhero movies. It takes place in a gritty-looking, color-drained world of grays, brown and icy blues. All the better to set off that red cape, perhaps.

The scenes of Clark Kent's Kansas childhood are drenched in Americana, complete with freshly laundered flannels flapping on the clothes line.



Snyder, who also directed the superhero film Watchmen, said he wanted to find a poignancy to add to the familiar story.
We get some hints of that tenderness in conversations between Kent and his farmer father, played by Kevin Costner, as they struggle to keep the young superhero's powers hidden.

But then we see Kent grow up, learn to fly and begin to take on an assortment of foes. It's this part of the legend - not the troubled childhood - that seems to most animate Snyder.

"I've been a big fan of the character my whole life," Snyder said. "He is the greatest super hero. There's no competition between super heroes, but if there was, he'd win."

The new franchise is anchored by Henry Cavill, a British actor who starred on the Showtime series The Tudors before taking on the mantle of the man of steel. His is the only chiseled face in the trailer not instantly recognizable as a mega-star.

Snyder and Warner Bros. appear to be enjoying teasing fans with snippets of the film, which hits theaters at the height of blockbuster season on June 14.

Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Man of Steel is out in theaters on June 14.
