Find out what director Zack Snyder and the writers/producers of “Man of Steel” were thinking when they decided to “re-imagined” everyone’s favorite Big Blue Boy Scout. I’m not sure how “relatable” he really can be, to be perfectly honest with you. It’s still Superman. He still wears a really tight latex suit and flies around and can bounce bullets off his eyeballs. (Or at least, the Bryan Singer version could, and I’m guessing this version can, too. Or not.)
In any case, there’s certainly a lot to like about Snyder’s version of Supes. Check out a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the movie that features tons of new footage sprinkled among the over 3-minute long video. There’s nothing here that diminishes my excitement to see this movie. If anything, I’m even MORE excited to see this thing in a theater full of people. I anticipate lots of hoopin’ and hollerin’.
Clark Kent/Kal-El 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 and Jonathan Kent, 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.
Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe.
