TV spots for upcoming movies tend not to have anything that you wouldn’t find in the movie trailers themselves, but every so often an extra half-second or two from the aforementioned TV spots offers up a tantalizing plot point.
This particular spot from Man of Steel gives us a couple extra seconds of Zod’s attack on Metropolis, revealing that he basically tries to Death Star us with his planet-cleaving laser ship. Why? We don’t know. Just like his greasy haircut, details for its purpose are lacking.
Geez, Zod. What did we ever do to you? Don’t you like Planet Houston?
