These aren't Man of Steel's opening credits, but they should be

Let me make it abundantly clear this is not a leaked version of the opening title sequence to Man of Steel. It's a fantastic fan-made creation by a production company called Will & Tale, but it's almost certainly better than whatever we'll get in the actual movie.

Admittedly, I'm biased here because I'm sick to death of seeing Superman's origin on-screen, and this video sums up everything anyone would possibility need to know about Superman wonderfully and eloquently, and in less than 100 seconds. So for those four people who have somehow never experienced pop culture at any point over the last 80 or so years and somehow missed hearing what Superman's deal is, they'd be perfectly caught up, while the rest of us wouldn't have to sit through the shit we already know for the umpteenth time. I KNOW HE GROWS UP ON A FUCKING FARM. I DON'T NEED TO WATCH HIM DOING FIVE MINUTES OF SUPER-POWERED YARDWORK TO REMEMBER HIS HUMBLE ORIGINS GODAMMIT.

"I DON'T NEED TO WATCH HIM DOING FIVE MINUTES OF SUPER-POWERED YARDWORK TO REMEMBER HIS HUMBLE ORIGINS GODAMMIT."

Considering this has him using his powers for athletic success, perhaps you do because there's no way the morals instilled in him by Martha & Jonathan Kent allow that to happen.

Personally, I love seeing Superman's origin. I loved it on Superman in the 50's. I loved it when Super Friends did it. I loved it in Superman The Movie. I loved finally seeing it on Lois & Clark. I loved seeing it on Superman The Animated Series and loved finally seeing it on Smallville. I'm actually glad they saw fit to show it here too.

Oh, in terms of live action depictions that the general public would have seen that breaks down to:

50's - 1
60's - 0
70's - 1
80's - 0
90's - 1
00's - 1

So this will be the 5th time in 61 years. Yeah, we're just drowning in it...
