Epic new full-length Man of Steel trailer

The first full-length trailer for Superman reboot 'Man of Steel' has been released… and it'll bring a tear to your eye.

Watch it below.

Henry Cavill dons the costume in Zack Snyder's fresh take on the iconic character. Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh previously pulled on the red pants.

The trailer offers a quick glimpse of Superman's adopted dad Jonathan Kent, played by Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe's real dad Jor-El and Michael Shannon as villainous General Zod.

Christopher Nolan, who helmed the latest Batman trilogy, is producing.

Talking about the project earlier this year, Snyder said: "We took the mythology seriously. We take him as a character seriously.

"I believe the movie would appeal to anyone. I think that you're going to see a Superman you've never seen before. We approached it as though no other films had been made."

'Man Of Steel' is set for release in the UK on 14 June 2013.
