Viral marketing has unveiled a brand new trailer for Superman’s return to the big screen, Man of Steel.

The new trailer puts the focus on General Zod, played by Boardwalk Empire‘s Michael Shannon, and his plan to lure Kal-El out of hiding.

This is the most action packed preview yet. As we move closer to the release date, expect more of this.

The previous trailers have been more cerebral and thought provoking. If the film manages to be both, under Zach Snyder’s direction and Christopher Nolan’s guidance, it could be a return to form for the hero.

Superman last appeared in 2006’s Superman Returns, directed by Bryan Singer, which saw a warm critical reception but an almost completely dismissive fan reaction.

Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill in the title role, with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent.

The film hits theaters June 14. Check out the new trailer below!
