Man of Steel's action packed new trailer

Man of Steel's latest trailer starts with Clark Kent escaping his ravaged home world and ends with him fighting for the survival of mankind as Superman.

The third official trailer for the Superman origin story ups the ante from previous promos for the highly anticipated film.

It features much more action and delivers glimpses of the roles played by Russell Crowe as Superman's father Jor-El and Michael Shannon as the evil General Zod.

In its final scene, Kent (Henry Cavill) explains the S on his chest is a symbol for peace on his home world, only to be told by Lois Lane (Amy Adams) it should stand for something different on Earth.

She is cut off by a static crackle as she is about to name him 'Superman'.

Man of Steel was helmed by 300 director Zack Snyder and stars Cavill, Adams, Crowe, Shannon and Kevin Costner.
