We’ve been waiting for months to see what Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is really about, and now we know. The new trailer is here, and it spills all the massively awesome details.

The latest trailer is loaded with new footage. Like, a lot of new footage. From war on Krypton, to Zod searching for Kal-El, to Superman’s epic battle with Zod’s forces. It’s all here.

We finally get to see a little more of the setup and the story, which really tells us a lot about Snyder’s approach. It’s definitely an origin tale, but it looks like we’ll actually get to see a lot of action set on Krypton before it heads to Earth.

Kal-El was sent to Earth to be a beacon of hope, and we get to see more of how he grapples with his powers. Zod’s role also becomes more clear as he’s sent to Earth to track down the rogue Kryptonian who’s making a name for himself as a guardian angel.

Man of Steel is set to open June 14. What do you think of the new trailer?
