General Zod Calls Out Superman In New Man Of Steel Viral Trailer

In addition to the Catching Fire teaser trailer, the MTV Movie Awards also brought us this piece of viral marketing for Man of Steel! Our first look at General Zod (Michael Shannon) is an eerie one, as he issues an ultimatum to the citizens of Earth and the Kryptonian hidden in their midst.

Along with the creepy subliminal mantra YOU ARE NOT ALONE, this is what Zod has to say:

“My name is General Zod. For some time, your world has sheltered one of my citizens. I request that you return this individual to my custody. To Kal-El, I say this: Surrender within 24 hours or watch this world suffer the consequences.”

And yes, the video is supposed to look like that.

RopeofSilicon also noticed this brief flash of red:

Finally, fans have discovered the viral site, which is counting down 48 hours. Could that mean we get a new trailer?
