Long suffering Superman fans might have just gotten the best news yet on the upcoming Zack Snyder directed Man of Steel film set to open on June 14th 2013. During this year's San Diego Comic Con, advance footage was screened and it was apparently so good that it brought tears to the eyes of one fan (as reported by The Hollywood Reporter). Also, a special teaser poster/image was released and even though it doesn't reveal much, it is pretty awesome.
I've been pretty hard on what DC Comics has been doing to my favorite superhero this year, but everything about this reboot of the on screen Man of Steel simply seems to be just amazing at this point. It has a stellar cast, a great looking super suit. Image perfect casting for the title character, and now some great advanced buzz on the film's first footage. While I myself haven't seen the footage (hopefully our on the spot reporter for this years Comic Con-Dan Horn-did), I will admit that I got chills when I read about this fans reaction. June 14th, 2013 can't get here soon enough!
