Speculation began last week that we'd be seeing trailers for Man of Steel and The Wolverine in a few weeks with Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Earlier today, director James Mangold said there wouldn't be a trailer for The Wolverine yet, but now director Zack Snyder says there WILL be a trailer for the Superman movie (via MTV).

"It's fun. I can't wait for 'The Hobbit,' so it will be fun to see our crazy 'Man of Steel' trailer and then enjoy the Hobbit because that's going to be great," said Snyder. "It just feels like a fun Christmas thing to do, drag the whole family out for that action."

He also teased the performance of Michael Shannon as General Zod.

"I was just incredibly fortunate to play with those guys who really were giving all they had to bring a level of commitment to the scenes they have together so that audiences will get an opportunity to really have their heroes taken seriously. As serious as I was taking it, and I don't mean that from a depressing kind of way but from a, 'This is important and fun and needs to be given the respect that it deserves,' from that perspective it was so exciting to watch them drink the Kool-Aid of that concept and go all the way."

Snyder is well into the post-production for the film and is nothing but enthusiastic about it: "I'm super psyched. It's really fun. I have no superhero fatigue."

The film stars Henry Cavill in the role of Superman/Clark Kent, alongside three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams (The Fighter), Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), Academy Award winner Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves), Oscar nominee Diane Lane (Unfaithful), Oscar nominee Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got to Do with It), Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, Michael Kelly, Richard Shiff, and Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).

Man of Steel will be presented in 3D, 2D, and IMAX and is slated for release on June 14, 2013.
