Following up on the creepy video message from General Zod comes the third trailer for Man of Steel, which gives us a better look at the villain of the film. The newest trailer begins with a glimpse of Russell Crowe's Jor-El, saying goodbye to his son and stating that he'll be a god to the people of Earth. From there, we see Clark Kent's slow and uncertain rise to heroism. and later, an amusing conversation between Superman and Amy Adams' Lois Lane, who questions him about the "S" on his chest.
The three-minute trailer features some snippets of footage previously revealed in the first and second trailer, and shows us Clark Kent as a boy, after being sent to Earth by his parents. We see him coming to discover his abilities and then, on the advice and encouragement of his adoptive father, Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), he sets off to discover the reason he was sent here. That leads to some exciting, fire-filled footage of Clark saving people on a boat.
Then there's the thrilling, silhouetted shot of our hero in his cape with Jor-El's voice behind him, telling him he'll give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. "They'll race behind you. They will stumble. They will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders." That exciting and inspirational message leads to a glimpse of Zod screaming, "I will find him!", which just so happens to be the name of the countdown site that now shows the above trailer (IWillFindHim.com).
We also learn that the "S" actually means hope. I like that, but Superman does have a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
