'Superman Returns' trailer online

The new Superman Returns trailer hit yesterday. You can take a look here. Why is this on a God-talk blog? Read here why I like comic book movies—and why I think they resonate both with Christians and our culture. Interestingly, Superman Returns (which is scheduled to release June 30 in the U.S.) is using a lot of messianic language, the original trailer in particular. Here's a plot summary from IMDB:
Following a mysterious absence of several years, the Man of Steel comes back to Earth in the epic Superman Returns. While an old enemy plots to render him powerless once and for all, Superman faces the heartbreaking realization that the woman he loves, Lois Lane, has moved on with her life. Or has she? Superman's bittersweet return challenges him to bridge the distance between them while finding a place in a society that has learned to survive without him. In an attempt to protect the world he loves from cataclysmic destruction, Superman embarks on an epic journey of redemption that takes him from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space.
