Faster than a speeding bullet?

That pretty much sums up a few of the new images we see in the latest Man of Steel trailer. Some of the scenes are impossible to figure out without a bit more context, but Entertainment Weekly has some clues that might help explain a few of the more inexplicable shots.

A close study also reveals that director Zack Snyder has slipped in a reference to another major Superman villain.

Here’s a deeper look at what’s hidden in the trailer:

• Lex Luthor hint

• What does Superman find in the ice?

• That’s not a giant spider … Don’t worry.

• Who is that riding a  dragonfly?

• Can’t Superman just snap those handcuffs?
