Do You Believe A Man Can Fly? (I Mean, After Superman Returns Flopped)
It Came From Outer Space
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
— The official synopsis of Man of Steel, Zach Snyder‘s Superman film, produced by Christopher Nolan, and written by David S. Goyer and Jonathan Nolan.
Eeeeenteresting. Lets be honest, superhero movies based on a character of the big two are kind of mandatory viewing for me these days. Yeah, I’m looking at you Green Lantern, your Rifftrax better come out soon. But a Superman movie about the man more than the superhero? I’m interested in seeing whether Zach Snyder can pull that off. Time will tell, and your milage will undoubtedly vary.
