Man of Steel Trailer

Check out the latest trailer for Man of Steel, the new Superman film directed by Zack Snyder, produced by Christopher Nolan, and starring Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe, Amy Adams, and Michael Shannon:

The Christological themes in the trailer alone are fantastic.

A father sends his son to Earth in order to show to save the world, to show them a better way of life.

"He'll be an outcast. They'll kill him." "How? He'll be a god to them."

Kevin Costner's "you are my son" is nearly the same phrase the Father speaks at the baptism of Jesus.

Michael Shannon's demand for power and that Superman kneel before him resonates of the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness.

The image of a lone man willing to be rejected by the world, only to save the world from its own violence and depravity.

This is gonna be a great movie about Jesus. (Except it's about an alien superhero who can fly and has a sweet red cape.)

  1. Thanks. And, just for the record, to me the "S" stands for Savior.
