Man of Steel Trailer with Williams’ Superman Theme
By now you’ve probably seen the new Man of Steel Trailer which as expected dropped earlier today. It was in my opinion much better than the teaser trailer that ran with TDKR earlier this year and not just because it has women seen and heard (and yay for seeing BOTH of Clark’s moms!) or that it had Lois Lane which ALWAYS makes everything that is Superman better, but because it had more action, less fishing and felt more epic.
Here’s the trailer with the original Superman theme by John Williams. See what you think.
I have to admit I wasn’t “wowed” by the Man of Steel trailer when I first watched it earlier today. I’m honestly just not that big of a Superman fan. I like Supes, but he’s never been a favorite of mine.
I did love this cut of the trailer with John Williams’ famous Superman score, though. Actually, it gave me chills. The score is so iconic part of me wishes they would use it.
But I understand why not, they need to establish this Superman with his own theme, make him iconic in his own way. They didn’t rehash the Danny Elfman Batman theme for The Dark Knight trilogy, and I’m glad they didn’t.
What are your thoughts on the new trailer? Do you like it better - even a little bit? - with the Williams score instead?
