Update: Director Zack Snyder confirmed at Comic-Con that the trailer is attached to The Dark Knight Rises.

Man of Steel TrailerThis must have slipped me by -- blame the holidays -- but at the end of December it was reported that the first official trailer for the new Superman movie, the Man of Steel, would be released in about six months.

In addition, new official images are said to be released in June as well, with WB beginning their super marketing blitz surrounding the Zack Snyder-directed movie starring Henry Cavill and Amy Adams. offers the following (via SupermanHomePage)

12/22/11 – Man of Steel Movie Trailer to Debut in Six Months. Warner Bros. will reveal the first trailer and new images this June to prepare for Superman’s highly anticipated return to the big-screen. Warner Bros. will begin promoting its Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot ”˜Man of Steel’ a whole year before it’s 2013 release date.

While no official announcement has been made regarding the first trailer, with Christopher Nolan onboard as producer for the Man of Steel, could we see the trailer pushed back a month to the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20th?

Could be.

However, the "big" Warner Bros. movie getting released in June is Rock of Ages, which stars Tom Cruise and an all-star cast. The trailer just might be attached to that.

Perhaps WB wants to advertise the movie to a different audience, as arguably The Dark Knight Rises shares a similar fan-base, or they want to get a jump ahead on the Summer movie hype, promoting the Man of Steel along side the last few weeks building up to the third and final Batman installment.

The Man of Steel is currently finishing up with filming in California, so some kind of June or July teaser wouldn't be out of the question.

Then again, June would mark a full year's release before the debut of the Man of Steel, and that's when WB released the first trailer for The Dark Knight Rises.

Cosmic Book News will keep you updated.

Man Of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013 directed by Zack Snyder starring, Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Diane Lane as Martha "Ma" Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan "Pa" Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as Zod, and Russel Crowe as Jor-El.
