Clark Kent Is a Super Boy: Not a shocker, but the displaced alien boy growing up on earth is brave from the get-go. In the clip, he saves a classmate from a school bus accident, revealing his superhuman strength. His father later reprimands him for his heroism, reminding him, "You have to keep this side of yourself a secret." Even if, Pa Kent (Kevin Costner) says, that potentially means letting good people die.
Superman Scruff: Who knew this action hero was rocking some fierce facial hair before he slipped into that spandex suit—or that he could find a shaver strong enough to handle him? In any case, he loses the razor aversion before his full superhero transition, though we're really liking the Jon Hamm in-between-roles look.
Lois Lane Is a Looker, Too: We usually envision Clark Kent's love interest as a brassy brunette, but Amy Adams' strawberry-blond hair and gentle strength is working for us. Adams isn't featured all that much in the trailer, but the raw emotion and feeling shown in her eyes is enough to convince us she's perfect for the part.
Man, He's Got Some Funky Shoes: No way we could walk a mile in those things. In a quick close-up of Superman's costume reveals his odd, Croc-like wedges that are attached to his rubbery-looking suit. We know this is a function over fashion thing, but those things aren't exactly GQ approved.
Still, He Is Superman!: A voiceover of Clark's dad telling him he has to "decide what kind of man you wanna grow up to be" plays as Superman walks towards rolling mountains, cape flying behind him. At the end of the trailer, he flies straight upward, ready and eager to save the world.
