Man of Steel Trailer to Play Before The Hobbit

By Liza Foreman

LOS ANGELES ( - Director Zack Snyder has told MTV News that a trailer for "Man of Steel" will play before "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," when it opens on December 14.

"It's fun. I can't wait for ‘The Hobbit,' so it will be fun to see our crazy ‘Man of Steel' trailer and then enjoy ‘The Hobbit' because tat's going to be great," Snyder told the network.

A teaser trailer for the feature was released earlier this year. "Man of Steel" opens on June 14, 2013.

Both films are distributed by Warner Bros., which declined to comment.

Earlier this month, it was announced that nine minutes of the "Star Trek" sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness" would be shown in 500 select theaters before the IMAX version of "The Hobbit."

Russell Crowe stars in "Man of Steel."
