This weekend is huge for “Superman” fan’s because “Man of Steel” with Henry Cavill playing the American superhero and Amy Adams, as Lois Lane. We’ll both see when it open’s theatrically, based on the DC Comics character Superman, the film directed by Zack Snyder, and produced by Christopher Nolan, will be a reboot of the Superman film series, portraying the character’s from it’s original comic book story.
The “Man of Steel” will launch a shared fictional universe of DC Comics characters on film. With it’s co-star’s, who include 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.
This series has rebooted since the 2006 film “Superman Returns, that starred then actor Brandon Routh, remember in that one he was castrated as Clark Kent after he found out
Lois Lane had premarital relations with another guy after Clark. Taking the sails out of his cape and turning him into a flying peeping tom, outside her bedroom window. Since his 2006 appearance in that version, Brandon Routh, has been type cast in various gay film and tv roles.
In the premise of “Man of Steel” after being transported to Earth from the dying planet of Krypton, baby Clark who is a humanoid alien, is adopted by Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent.. Later growing up he feels alienated because of his unique super powers and struggles to find his own place in life. But all the while he’s raised with the values of his adoptive parents, finally he becomes the hero named Superman.
When the world is attacked, in the name of what is good in the American way, he protect Earth and all its people. Which is tough, on the “Man of Steel”, having his multiple identities
including his birth name, Kal-El, and his alter ego, Clark Kent. Superman’s all alone because there’s no one like him,. It’s incredibly scary and lonely, for Clark, not knowing who you are or for that matter what you are, and trying to find out what makes sense.
Luckily, Lois Lane, Amy Adams, is there for some romance that’ll whip Clark Kent into a real Man of Steel in one night! Let’s face it, Amy has all of the qualities we love about Lois, like she’s smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful.The film will feature Amy, a Lois Lane protrayed as an “independent, feisty woman…while still a free ranging journalist, someone who likes to be hands on…on Superman that is. Oh My!!!
Playing the Kryptonian general and megalomaniac with the same super-powers just like Superman, is protrayed by “Michael Shannon as General Zod.Who’s one of Superman’s most formidable enemies, he has insights into Superman that others don’t. There’s only one actor can tacle both the intelligence and the malice of the character, like Michael, who is a powerful actor who can a true cool villain for this movie?
Russell Crowe as Jor-El is Superman’s biological father, at least the casting has moved past that old 70’s footage of the late Godfather star, Marlon Brando, whom for a while there we seemed uncertain if he wanted Superman to fight crime or join the mob?
With Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder will be dressing Henry Cavill in a cutting-edge concept for Superman’s suit and cape, looking a little knight of the round table. Revealing actor Henry Cavill as Superman in a brand new suit, in this $225 million dollar Hollywood blockbuster, making it a special occasion like no other.
Which you’ll see for yourself on Friday, June 14, at a theater near you!
