Cape Town - The first teaser trailer for Superman reboot Man of Steel has been released, showing British actor Henry Cavill take to the skies in the iconic red and blue costume.

Superman was last seen on the big screen in Bryan Singer's uneven 2006 blockbuster Superman Returns, with Brandon Routh as bespectacled journalist Clark Kent and his super-strong alter ego Superman.

Man of Steel
is directed by Zack Snyder (Sucker Punch, 300) and also stars Russell Crowe as Superman's father Jor-El from his home planet Krypton, Amy Adams as love interest Lois Lane and Michael Shannon as villain General Zod.

Kevin Costner and Diane Lane play earth-bound Clark Kent's adoptive parents Jonathan and Martha Kent.

Costner narrates the 90-second clip which shows a lonely and bearded Clark working on board a fishing boat, telling his son he is not just anyone and that one day he will "have to make choice" about the man he wants to be.

Man of Steel is produced by The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan, who also co-wrote the screenplay.

The teaser trailer premiered at Comic-Con earlier this month and extended for theatrical release as it is showing before screenings of The Dark Knight Rises in the US.

Man of Steel is set for release on 14 June 2013. Check out their official Facebook page here.
