New Man of Steel video explains why Supes lost the underwear

Man of Steel - Behind The Scenes Featurette (HD) with Superman

Only eleven more days (not that we’re counting) until Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel soars into movie theatres, and to further whet our appetites, Warner Bros. has released a brand-new 13-minute behind-the-scenes video featurette that's pretty darn cool.

Filled with exciting new glimpses of this summer’s upcoming DC Comics movie, fascinating interviews with screenwriter David S. Goyer, director Zack Snyder and some of the film’s main stars, including Henry Cavill (Clark Kent) and Russell Crowe (Jor-El), as well as other cast members and producers -- this new video is filled to the brim with pure awesomeness.

If you weren't excited enough about seeing the movie yet, this'll probably do it.

All those talks about grounding the Superman mythos in the "real world" has us itching even more to see the film. Even cooler? That whole discussion about why they kept the cape and ditched the red underwear, and the actual reason behind the iconic “S” our favorite Last Son of Krypton wears on his suit.

Also starring Michael Shannon (Zod), Amy Adams (Lois Lane) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated Man of Steel opens in theaters on June 14th. Will you kneel before Zod?
