General Zod Demands Earthlings Hand Over Superman In ‘Man Of Steel’ Teaser

It seems like only a few days ago we were posting a tremendous pile of Man Of Steel promo pictures. Oh, right, it was only a few days ago. And now we have a brief teaser which aired during last night’s MTV Movie Awards. It’s thirty seconds of static with General Zod speaking to Earth and to Superman. “For some time your world has sheltered one of my citizens. I request that you return this individual to my custody,” he says, before addressing Kal-El (Superman) directly, “Surrender within 24 hours or watch this world suffer the consequences.”

So Zod can learn English and patch into a TV broadcast, but he can’t make the picture not be static? Pfft, whatever, Zod. We could totally send Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith and some cigars up to your spaceship to hack the Gibson and give you a virus.

This teaser seems to go along with a billboard spotted in LA which links to a countdown clock with Kryptonian symbols at I Will Find Damn it, Warner just squatted on the domain we were going to use for our Waldo slash fiction.

The countdown clock runs out on Tuesday night, presumably when a new trailer will come out. In the meantime, we also have a TV spot as well as a new picture released by Kellogg’s. Yep. Cereal is breaking Man Of Steel news now. What a time to be alive.
