A new full length trailer for the upcoming Superman movie Man of Steel has been released.

It shows a young Clark Kent coming to grips with his powers while growing up in Kansas.

His adoptive father Jonathan Kent, played by Kevin Costner, tells him to hide who he is after he apparently saves children whose schoolbus plunged into a river from drowning.

There are also glimpses of blockbuster-scale action at the end of the 2 minute 30 trailer once Henry Cavill takes to the skies as Superman.


Russell Crowe makes a brief appearance as Jor-El along with Amy Adams as Lois Lane.

Watchmen and 300 director Zach Snyder is helming Man of Steel and Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan is a producer for the film.
