SPECTACULAR TEASER FOR ZACK SNYDER'S "MAN OF STEEL" WITH HENRY CAVILL, AMY ADAMS, RUSSELL CROWE, KEVIN COSTNER, DIANE LANE, MICHAEL SHANNON!

I bet you've already seen it by now, since it was the main film event of the weekend, but here's the freshly released mega stunning and totally seductive and alluring teaser for MAN OF STEEL which comes out next year. Directed by amazing Zack Snyder, who gave the world his ground breaking epic 300, the reboot of the Superman saga has Henry Cavill as the man of steel, Amy Adams as "Daily Planet" journalist Lois Lane, and Laurence Fishburne as her editor in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent's adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan
Kent, are Diane Lane and Kevin Costner. Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and Faora, Zod's evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman's native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman's mother, played by Ayelet Zurer, and Superman's father, Jor-El, portrayed by Russell Crowe. Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.
MAN OF STEEL STORY
 Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant
planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary
abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a MAN OF STEEL, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world's beacon of hope - Superman.
SUPERMAN TIDBITS
The budget of the film is somewhere around $175. million! Darren Aronofsky and Ben Affleck were the first choices for the helmer of 
the film before Zack Snyder took over the job by quitting the director's job on 300 prequel BATTLE OF ARTEMISIA. The list of actresses who were in the run for Lois Lane part before Amy Adams took it includes Anne Hathaway, Dianna Agron, Mila Kunis, Olivia Wilde, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman.... The list of the handsome actors who were in the run for the Superman role before Henry Cavill took it is even longer and includes Matthew Goode who worked with the director on WATCHMEN, TRUE BLOOD hunk Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Armie Hammer and even Zac Efron.
Julianne Moore and Jodie Foster were in the run for Martha Kent role. For a very long time Viggo Mortensen was planned for the role of General Zod. Henry Cavill will be the first British actor to play Superman in history.
  
ATTENTION ALL SPY LOVERS! 
First I would kindly ask you all to pop over to the site of my dear friend Anne O'Leary who is interviewing me today on the topic of my profession in the first part of a series of talks with your own spy. Go over and leave a comment, people. I also wanted to thank amazing Dan Feuerriegel, the star of SPARTACUS show, who sent me a lovely tweet today. He liked the post we did on him this Sunday. I also got dozens and dozens of lovely tweets from his loving fans and thousands and thousands of visits to the post on him. Glad you liked it all!

  1. Can't say I've ever been a huge Superman fan. He's just too dull as a character I always found. I'll watch it probably and it surely sounds better than the last three at least. Geez you do know the famous folks, or are just pretending haha Prob really R that tweeted you or something. And Anne pffft.

    1. he is a bit dull, but he and the Flash are the only superheros I like since they are both good boys and there's no morbid darkness around them. They are truly inspiring for young kids, unlike that horrid Batman whose stories inspire.... well, you've seen it this weekend.

      R? You mean one of your numerous alter egos? :)

    2. Cat you're just jealous of how many people love our De. Now go off into your corner and lick your arse until the fur fall off.

    4. Yeah you just like all the nicey nice ones, pfft Superman is way too boring. The Flash is great but he has corny bad guys, some of them are on the level of sesame street bad guys. And the cat will lick his arse and enjoy it.

      Oh and you can't blame the shootings on Batman. That's just dumb. A nutcase is a nutcase.

    5. Pat, tell me you didn't just call me dumb in that context, especially since you are aware on my principles on that topic.
      That horrible thing didn't happen at ICE AGE, nor at SHREK nor at JOHN CARTER. It happened at the screening of a morbidly dark movie, with extremely dark and sick characters and all that done to entertain. The responsibility is there, and no one can deny it. Violence inspires violence and if you chose to use violence in entertaining purposes you will end up with things like this. The world has become way too irresponsible.

    6. I didn't call you dumb, meant the idea that a movie made the nut job shoot people is dumb. The movie may be the trigger that finally makes these whacko's snap, but they are whacko or are fecked up to begin with from something in life, the movie, game or whatever else people try to blame didn't cause the crack pot to pick up the gun, the idea is already there and if it wasn't the movie it would be the mailman, the bills or something else. when they snap there is no rhyme or reason to what makes them snap, it just becomes a media firestorm more because they like to blame the movie, when it was just the nut job all along.

    7. Violence inspires those who are nuts. That's not the same thing, Dezz.

  2. I prefer the Kevin Costner/Jonathan Kent voiceover more than the Russell Crowe/Jor-El voiceover. Great choice to put this one up.

    1. we call him Henrylicious Cavill here, you know :)

  4. I think Cavill is a good choice for this Superman and I did grow up reading the comics, so I'm particular about what I like in this genre.

    It was so lovely for Daniel to have sent you a Thank You for last Sundays post. You've met such a wide variety of actors and actesses through your work and most of them end up being quite charming people. It's nice to know that not all celebreties are are difficult people.

    1. yep, there are the nice ones out there, Annzie :) I know HOLLYWOOD SPY is a small site, but I always knew my mission will be to give actors a support at the beginning of their career. Daniel told me this was the first post about him and I was very happy and honoured to hear it. You've seen how many young actors I wrote about spreading the word about them and I'm extremely happy whenever some of them get big projects later on.

    2. Quite a few of them have gone on to become quite popular darling. I imagine it is nice to meet them when they are just starting out and still full of excitement about the opportunity to work.

    3. yep, the nice ones, although there are those who think they're stars after the first project they;ve done....

  5. I know they needed to update Superman's costume, but it seems odd to see him without his little red briefs.

  9. I'm not convinced by Man of Steel. I think I'd need to see more before I got excited.

    1. yep, especially since he buffed himself up so much for IMMORTALS and for SUPERMAN! Has even better pecs than Kiss Evans :)

  14. That was a sweet trailer. Made my boy and sister happy. I sure look forward to a hopefully grounded version of Mr. S (not the spinning the world to reverse time stuff). :)

    1. LOL, wish we could spin the world to achieve that :)

  15. The international trailer has Russel Crowe/Jor-El narrating. I like listening to them back to back.

    1. yes, but I prefer the one with Kevin Costner :) it's less dark and more emotional.

  16. I don't like Superman either but I liked Henry in Immortals so I'll give it a shot. Plus, he actually makes the suit look good. He got a lot buffer since I last saw him. I always envy how easy it is for them to get so muscular so fast. It took me years to develop my body and I'm still working on it. Geesh.

    1. yep, but don't forget that they have teams of trainers and experts who work with them on achieving the look by sticking to harsh army discipline and who knows what kind of substances .... I've been doing a hundred of situps every day for ten years now and will never have abs like him :)

  17. Oh no! I missed the interview yesterday! I must go check it out now!

    I think I may be the only person who won't be seeing anymore super hero movies. I'm tired of them. I guess I feel the same way about super heroes the way others feel about zombies - they are overdone.

    You got a tweet from Dan Feuerriegel? You rock!

    1. it's the first part :) the second part will have cooking as well :)

      Nope, you're not the only one, I like superheroes, but the films about them are just plain horrid and morbid and ebil. Instead of fighting for light, all of them seem to be promoting darkness and violence.

      Dan is such an awesome possum :)

    2. I loved your interview with Anne and I'm really looking forward to the cooking part - I've always wondered about that part of you, my Dezzy!!

      I agree with you. I don't know what's happened to the super heroes. Not all of them, but as of late, they are getting, I don't know...almost creepy...it's weird. I don't like it. I know you and I disagree on some things about the movies but on this we agree - hooray!! LOL =PP

    3. there will even be a recipe for sharing :)
      The whole world has gone mad, Elsie, bitter and dark and we're losing all rules and principles... it won't come to any good.... :(

  18. Whoa...what happens to his red panty?

    It was always a good joke here in Indonesia. Why is Superman wearing his underwear outside? because if he wears it inside, his name is not Superman but Suparman (Indonesian male's name).

    Can't believe the new superman doesn't wear underwear anymore

  20. $175 million won't be enough to outdo Christopher. There's not an effect in the world that can replace the most important thing in a movie: the actor playing supe.

    2. Like you said a year ago... shit happens, right? I was there when Superman (I) hit the movie theaters. I was, what, 7 or eight, and when the score kicked in ever so slowly, I just knew I was in for a special ride. I guess I can't give this new one a fair chance, I have to be honest with you. Today I saw the latest Batman and the same thing happened. Why can't I switch off my brain and enjoy the new show?

  21. I've never been much of a Supes fan, but I'll definitely give Man of Steel a go. After both Avengers and Dark Knights Rises though, it's a hell of a tough act to follow.
