Man of Steel: Modern Superhero (Review & Trailer)

Man of Steel is a 2013 American modern superhero film directed by Zack Snyder, produced by Christopher Nolan, and scripted by David S. Goyer. Man of Steel's red carpet debut in the U.S. was attended by its principal cast members in New York City on June 10, 2013.

The film stars Henry Cavill in the title role with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Russell Crowe as Jor-El. Man of Steel is intended to launch a shared fictional universe of DC Comics characters on film.

Man of Steel re-imagines the legend of Superman in modern movie fashion – beginning with the story of his home planet, Krypton. In Man of Steel, Superman is no longer an impenetrable, godlike figure. Instead, he is portrayed as a young Clark Kent, in conflict with his identity.

As he grows older we see his emotional side as he grapples with human issues such as love, loss and divided loyalties.

To create a "true reboot" of the film series, Snyder, Nolan and scriptwriter David S Goyer - another Dark Knight collaborator - set out to base their Superman solely on the 75 years of "dense" history created by the comic books.

What Man of Steel displays in highly visual and dramatic set pieces, it lacks in humour.

The fumbling, bumbling characteristics of the Reeve movies have been replaced by a po-faced Cavill, whose no-nonsense attitude leaves little time for romance with prize-winning journalist Lois Lane, played by Amy Adams. However, there are hints of a burgeoning romance.

The film was released to the general public on June 14, 2013, in conventional, 3D and IMAX theaters.
