A new trailer for Man of Steel was released by Warner Bros. that gives fans a more detailed look at the upcoming Zack Snyder directed Superman reboot.

The third trailer for Man of Steel opens with Krypton under the threat of war, as Russell Crowe’s Jor-El (played by Marlon Brando in the 1978 version of Superman) prepares to send baby Kal-El to Earth. “He’ll be a god to them,” says Crowe before the baby is shot off into space and the new trailer begins.

Years later we see a young Clark Kent on his farm, aspiring to be something greater before he saves his schoolmates and begins to learn from his new father Jonathan (Kevin Costner) that he’s the “answer” to whether humans are alone in the universe.

The third Man of Steel trailer flashes ahead to Henry Cavill as Clark who leaves home in search of his true identity only to save the lives of others on his way to becoming Superman.

For anyone thinking that Man of Steel would be a sub-par comic book reboot, the third trailer is filled with empowering messages of hope and inspiration. Although Man of Steel is a modern, more mature coming of age of tale of Superman like we’ve never seen before, it’s a relatable story for anyone who’s lost and strives to find their true purpose in life.

“I have to believe you were sent here for a reason,” says Kevin Costner through voiceover as Jonathan Kent. “And Even if it takes the rest of your life, you owe it to yourself to find out what that reason is.”

Say what you want about the trailer itself, but it’s clear Man of Steel will help many fans find their own purpose in life. Now that we’re three trailers in before the June 14 release, it’s starting to look like this is the Superman movie we’ve all been waiting for.

Do you owe it to yourself to find your own reason?
