We've seen what Henry Cavill looks as Superman, but now we finally have a chance to see Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
Warner Bros. released a new trailer that sees Superman reflecting on his childhood on Earth. We also catch glimpses of Russell Crowe's Jor-El and Kevin Costner as Superman's adoptive father, Jonathan Kent. The film, directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan, is set for a June 14 release next year.

Christopher Nolan will "never" make another 'Batman' movie.
According to the director's wife and producing partner Emma Thomas, there is "no possibility" of the filmmaker - who has helmed Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and forthcoming film The Dark Knight Rises - taking charge of another motion picture containing the superhero because he wouldn't be able to get "excited" about a fourth film in the franchise.
"No, that's truly a never. I can't imagine a world in which he would ever want to come back. At a certain point it's fun to go off and do something different, you know. We've spent almost 10 years of our lives making Batman films. He was very excited about this film, and the story that he'd come up with, but I just cannot imagine that he would get that excited about another version of the same thing."
Emma believes a third movie in the series still feels like part of the original movie, but she insists doing a fourth motion picture in the franchise wouldn't be appealing to Christopher because the story will have veered so far away from 2005's Batman Begins.
Cillian Murphy has hinted he may appear in The Dark Knight Rises.
The Irish actor - who starred as villain Scarecrow in Batman Begins - could reprise his role for the third and final movie in Christopher Nolan's franchise.
"Well, it's coming out in July isn't it? That's not long to wait. All these questions!" he said when asked if he would be appearing in the film.
Scarecrow made a brief appearance in The Dark Knight, and Cillian previously revealed he would be happy to take on the role for a third time: "It's not for me to start campaigning for the Scarecrow to come back, but if Chris wants me back in that role, yeah, absolutely, I would love to do it."
Cillian combines a Hollywood career along with theatre - most recently picking up New York's prestigious Drama Desk Award for his Outstanding Solo Performance in Enda Walsh's Misterman - and he revealed he unpredictability is one of the best and worst things about being an actor.
Chrisopher Nolan will executive produce Wally Pfister's directorial debut.
The Dark Knight Rises director and his producing partner Emma Thompson have confirmed they will be working on the Oscar-winning cinematographer's first film as director, an unnamed thriller. Alcon Entertainment will fund the project. Christopher and Emma had previously joined forces with Alcon for their 2002 thriller Insomnia.
"Chris and Emma, with whom we worked so closely on Insomnia, are supremely talented, as filmmakers, as collaborators, as storytellers, in all ways large and small, and we are delighted to be in business with them again," commented producers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.
Christian Bale would ''love the challenge'' of playing Batman for a fourth time.
The actor portrays the Caped Crusader and his alter ego Bruce Wayne for the third time in The Dark Knight Rises and though it is expected to be the final film in director Christopher Nolan's series, the 38-year-old star hasn't ruled out returning to the character again in the future.
"My understanding is that this is the last one. I think it's appropriate, I think it's going out at the right time. But... if Chris came to me with a script and said, 'You know what? There is another story,' then I would love the challenge of making a fourth one work," he said.
However, the director appears to have suggested there definitely won't be a fourth movie, saying the third film marks the "end" of the superhero's story: "What drew me to Batman in the first place was Bruce Wayne's story, and that he's a real character whose story begins in childhood. He's not a fully formed character like James Bond, so what we're doing is following the journey of this guy from a child who goes through this horrible experience of becoming this extraordinary character. That, for me, became a three-part story. And obviously the third part becomes the ending of the guy's story."
With all the box office record breaking The Avengers is doing, Warner Bros. wanted to leak a little reminder to movie-goers that they have a blockbuster superhero film coming out, too...
Although the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises hasn't revealed too much about Anne Hathaway's Catwoman, the teaser poster above doesn't look like she'll be serving too much as an ally to Christian Bale's Batman.
The film hits theaters on July 20.

Christopher Nolan feels a "tremendous challenge and responsibility" to finish his Batman trilogy in a satisfactory way.
The director is preparing for the release of The Dark Knight Rises, the third and final installment in his series of films, and he admitted the pressure the getting to him.
"We feel a tremendous challenge and responsibility to finish our story. We have to give the audiences something they haven't seen before, but also fulfill their expectations of what they enjoyed in the first two films. That's the tricky balance," he said.
The movie was filmed across the globe with locations in the US, UK and India and Christopher revealed this was a conscious decision because he wanted a "broader canvas."
"With a sequel there is always the challenge of trying to meet or indeed exceed expectations. And some of those are based on the size, scale and world of the film. We traveled to many different places because we wanted to give it a broader canvas," he added.
Tim Burton believes his Batman movies are like a "lighthearted romp" compared to Christopher Nolan's rebooted versions. The Dark Shadows filmmaker was in charge of 1989's Batman and 1992's Batman Returns, which he believes were a lot lighter than Christopher's latest installments of the superhero movie, The Dark Knight and the forthcoming follow up The Dark Knight Rises.
"I always get told that my material is dark, but nowadays my version of Batman looks like a lighthearted romp in comparison to Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight."
Michelle Pfeiffer thinks Anne Hathaway will make a fantastic Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises.
Michelle played the role in Batman Returns and is thrilled Anne will tackle the formidable character in the forthcoming Christopher Nolan-directed movie because she can "go to the dark places" needed for the villainess: "I think she's great. I'm actually very much looking forward to seeing her in that role. I'm a big fan of hers and I think she has everything you need for that role. She has the humor, she can go to dark places, she's obviously very talented. I think she's going to be really good."
Anne Hathaway had to "physically transform" to play Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises.
The One Day actress is the latest in a long line of stars including Eartha Kitt and Michelle Pfeiffer to play the formidable character in the forthcoming Christopher Nolan-directed sequel, and she admits it was tough to get into shape to fit into the famous suits she wears.
"I had to physically transform. Chris sat me down at the beginning and said, 'Joseph Gordon-Levitt did all his own fighting in Inception. That one zero-gravity fight. He trained for two months.' I basically left his office and went to the gym and just came out about five minutes ago," she said.
Commenting on the character, who is also known as Selena Kyle, Chris claims she represents an "underlying" sense of darkness in the film, which is the last he will direct. "She has a very strong way of protecting herself and those she cares about, which implies an underlying darkness," he told Entertainment Weekly.
