man of steel poster comic con wb Comic Con 2012: 'Man of Steel' footage and Superman Henry Cavill soar into San DiegoThe packed audience at Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment’s Saturday (July 14) panel at Comic-Con was already flying high after sneak peeks at upcoming films “Pacific Rim” and “Godzilla,” so director Zack Snyder’s presentation of new “Man of Steel” footage sent fans through the roof.

The movie’s star Henry Cavill also made a surprise appearance, telling the audience, “It’s a dream come true” to play Superman.

The clip screened at the panel shows only flashes of the film, including images of a young Clark Kent and Cavill in full Superman attire, as well as Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Russell Crowe as Jor’El. We also see a shirtless Clark Kent on fire and Superman crashing into a bank vault.

Snyder tells fans that “Man of Steel” will show a more relatable Superman than previous iterations, which he says depicted the superhero as “a big blue Boy Scout up on the throne.”

Are you ready for “Man of Steel” to hit theaters?
