As a navy brat and someone who works with a lot of members of the National Guard and teaches kids who’s parents are active military the fact that they’re putting Superman and the National Guard together to promote the good they do made me cry a little. Loved this so much.
I totally agree.
The National Guard is a particularly special fit because the Guard specifically encourages civilians who maybe don’t have crazy fighting skills or intense training that they can join and make a difference in their communities. That’s the message of Superman. It’s the idea that you don’t need to have physical power in order to have power for good.
Exactly! I think the National Guard is often overlooked and that TV spot did a great job of highlighting the ways they help their communities all the time.

“Lois Lane, who is as much a threat as a love interest in Man of Steel. The intrepid Daily Planet journalist is chasing down reports of a wandering stranger who is capable of superhuman feats of strength. It’s not much of a spoiler to say that gradually Lois starts to see something more in him than a good front-page story. ‘She ends up rescuing him, I always say,” Deborah Snyder (producer of MOS) says.” -EW
