It’s almost here, fan boy hero Zack Snyder takes on the Legendary Superhero Superman. In just seven days Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, will hit the cinemas and to say “lots of people are very excited” would be a massive understatement.
What’s the synopsis?
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something 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 (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin 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.
Henry Cavill takes on the role of the Man of Steel aka Kal-El / Superman / Clark Kent. Taking on the role of Lois Lane is Amy Adams and they’re joined by Michael Shannon (General Zod), Kevin Costner (jonathan Kent), Russell Crowe (Jor-El), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Richard Schiff, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White).
