Warner Bros. has launched the final “Man of Steel” trailer, just eight days before the U.S. opening, setting the stage for the much-anticipated reboot of the Superman story.

The trailer starts with Superman’s origins on Krypton as Russell Crowe’s Jor-El dispatching the baby Kal-El from his doomed world to Earth, the arrival of the child as Ma Kent (Diane Lane) looks on in astonishment and the young Clark Kent making his way in the world.

The trailer then shows off more than a dozen quick special effects scenes of Henry Cavill’s Superman flying, using X-Ray vision and battling  General Zod (Michael Shannon) of Krypton.

Zack Snyder directs “Man Of Steel,” which also stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Jadin Gould, Rebecca Butler and Christopher Meloni.
