“There is no such thing as too much lens flare,” said no one ever. Warner Bros. has released two more character posters for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel featuring Henry Cavill as Superman & Michael Shannon as General Zod. I love the double-chin effect in Cavill’s poster. The film centers on Clark Kent, a journalist in his twenties who was adopted as a child by Jonathan and Martha Kent after he was transported to Earth from the dying planet of Krypton. Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Michael Shannon co-star. Man of Steel hits theaters on June 14, 2013.
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.
