Superman reboot Man Of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, edges a little closer. Here's a new TV spot and synopsis...

Warner Bros, we suspect, is about to unleash the might of a pretty hefty marketing campaign for its upcoming Superman reboot, Man Of Steel. The film is but two months away now, and if reports are to be believed, the studio's Justice League movie plans lie in the new Superman project succeed. Expect the studio to leave nothing to chance.

The latest phase in the film's marketing has kicked off with a brief, updated synopsis, and the arrival of some footage in the first TV promo spot for the movie.

The bit of the synopsis that refers to the plot says:

"A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind".

In fairness, that entire synopsis could apply to Richard Donner's original Superman film too, letter for letter.

However, take a (brief) look at what Zack Snyder's done with it, in that TV spot here...

Man Of Steel is due out in June. And the official running time of the movie is now being reported as - ready? - 148 minutes. We'll have more on the film in due course...
