Superman: Man of Steel TV Trailer

I know this is an X-men blog and I don't talk about DC Comics all that much, but like finely aged whiskey I have a special appreciation for the classics. And that includes Superman. In case you're brain damaged or joined cult that required you to live without electricity, the internet, and fun you already know that Superman: The Man of Steel is getting the Batman Begins treatment this summer. After finding out that audiences really didn't care for a Superman who knocks up a woman, leaves the planet, and returns only to ditch the kid, DC and Warner Brothers felt it best to just start from scratch. There's no kid. There's no underwear on the outside. And Perry White is black. It's all new for a new generation of hipsters raised on anti-heroes, badasses, and douche-bags. Will it work? Check out the new TV spot and be your own judge.

I think the answer to the question is pretty clear. The world is ready for Superman again. And if you're still among that jaded generation who won't accept a superhero that isn't an asshole, just know this. Superman is now banging Wonder Woman in addition to saving the world. What the fuck have you done with your life, fictional or otherwise, lately?

See this movie or she will hang you by your scrotum and beat you to death with her pinkie toe.
