Well, they're both the same visually, but the teaser trailers that premiered before the screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" have two versions, one is narrated by Jonathan Kent aka Pa Kent (Kevin Costner), and the other features words spoken by Jor-El (Russell Crowe). Both imparts the wisdom of being a hero to Clark Kent/Superman (Henry Cavill). Much like producer Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Trilogy," this Zack Snyder-directed ("Watchmen," "300," "Sucker Punch") version of Superman seems to explore the true meaning of being a superhero to mankind.
Both versions of the teaser trailer use the same visuals -- Clark working on a fishing boat, and then we see him as a little boy wearing a red cape...fade to black...and then, here comes Superman skyrocketing towards the sky! Fantastic!
Here's the Russell Crowe as Jor-El version (via MSN):
"You will give the people an ideal to strive towards...They'll rise behind you. They will stumble. They will fall. In time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders."
And here's the Kevin Costner as Pa Kent version (via Yahoo):
"You're not just anyone...One day, you're going to have to make a choice. You'll have to decide what kind of man you want to grow up to be. Whoever that man is, good character or bad, is going to change the world."
I can't wait for June 14 of next year, when "Man of Steel" opens! Joining Cavill is Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne.
