Warner Brothers, DC Entertainment and Legendary Pictures have announced that Man of Steel will be holding open casting calls in Nanaimo and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island.

By EdGross - 8/17/2011
The film is seeking local people to work as background artists in scenes to be filmed in early October. This is fully paid work. There will be some casting for speaking roles in Vancouver, however this open casting call is for extras only. "Man of Steel" is currently filming in the Chicago, Illinois area and shooting will move to British Columbia on September 21, 2011. Filming will continue in Vancouver and surrounding areas through January 20, 2012.

The official synopsis for Man of Steel reads as follows: "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."

Sounds great. I really can't wait for this.
supermanallstar - 8/17/2011, 8:02 PM
Pretty much how a smallville movie or ending SHOULD have happened. Seriously that just screams smallville, We might get the suit for what like.... 20 minutes? Still... better then some crappy CGI i guess :P
CaptainDC - 8/17/2011, 8:08 PM
Now that's a synopsis, can't wait
hoperidesalone - 8/17/2011, 8:09 PM
I found out about this two days ago. I live in Nanaimo! I sent Andrea my application :D:D:D:D:D:D:D [frick]ING. Stoked.
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:09 PM
This sounds like the same synopsis we heard MONTHS ago...[frick]. So it is completely an origin story...damn. I just want to see Superman hitting something.

Oh well...

Bryan Singer, Brian Peterson, Kelly Souders and yes...even DONNER...

eat your hearts out in 2013 ;D

Hey I live in Canada!!! No wait I live in Ontario... fvck that's not to far away? Right?
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:17 PM
This is the part that pisses me off the most-

"Clark struggles with the ultimate question - Why am I here?"

Please god- NO MORE [frick]ING SELF DISCOVERY CRAP. We've already had to suffer through 10 years of Clark's lame self-discovery. I'm sick of Clark asking himself questions and trying not to use his powers. He needs to be SUPERMAN. This should NOT be a 'Clark Kent-film' Clark Kent had 10 years already to be a little puss and not even wear the suit- EVER. Now it's SUPERMAN'S turn.

[frick] CLARK KENT.
superotherside - 8/17/2011, 8:17 PM
sound like a mixture of Birthright and Earth one both of which were awesome! :) hope this is just as good! :)
jroka - 8/17/2011, 8:19 PM
"But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack." 'nuff said.
thereverendjonnynemo - 8/17/2011, 8:20 PM
its amazing how these synpsis are awesome at saying nothing.
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:21 PM



thatcoldblackcloud - 8/17/2011, 8:21 PM
Sounds like we'll have to sit through 145 mins of foreplay before Cavill puts on the Supeman duds and takes on zod. *****YAWN******
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:21 PM
^ nuff said.
Macksimus - 8/17/2011, 8:23 PM
Wow, that's the most half-assed movie synopsis I ever read.

It's basically just a synopsis of Superman in general.

...A MAN WITH SUPER POWERS FROM THE PLANET KRYPTON STRUGGLES TO SAVE THE WORLD AND THE ONES HE LOVES...okay, and????????????????????????
DCfan89 - 8/17/2011, 8:23 PM
seriously? ugh........
valeriesghost - 8/17/2011, 8:25 PM
not to upset about this. actually isn't this exactly what everyone expected after what we've seen so far?
rbfn04 - 8/17/2011, 8:28 PM
@theWorld not everyone know superman origin. Not the whole story anyways.

IMHO it's good they said CLARK needs to become Superman. For some reason, it screams "Clark is who I am, superman what I can do" to me...
WellDrawn - 8/17/2011, 8:28 PM
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:29 PM
This is basically Smallville: The Movie

Only positive thing is- We'll probably see Clark put the suit on at the very end of the very last scene in the movie while he goes to the bank ;P

Superman in live action is always sh*t and I know people are going to rag on me about what i said but it's true. I mean we've suffered enough with Routh and Welling. Superman is FINALLY leaving Reeve's shadow. But then...we get this utterly shitty synopsis?

Give me a [frick]ing break. WB lose the rights to Superman, you assholes don't deserve that character.
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:32 PM
Well I for one am not interested in a Clark Kent self-discovery movie. I HAD high hopes, now...[frick] this and [frick] snyder and [frick] WB.
BooYah - 8/17/2011, 8:32 PM
I should defintely go to this I love right by there!
BooYah - 8/17/2011, 8:33 PM
Live not love
AVEN - 8/17/2011, 8:34 PM
The plot sounds "MEH"
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:35 PM
@Froggy- Dude, it's another self-discovery load of garbage for Clark Kent. The difference between Superman and Batman at this point?

We already had 10 [frick]ING YEARS of Clark Kent's self-discovery. With Batman we didn't have to suffer like that.

So Batman Begins was very refreshing. But with Superman it's different- no one wants to see Clark Kent continually being a baby about his powers. We waited 10 years to see FOR ONCE a fully-costumed Superman- using his abilities and kicking some ass.

This does not sound like that. And as for the Batman Begins point you made- it's flawed. batman has no powers therefore that type of story works for him. But for a character like Superman who HAS powers and is capable of doing amazing things with them...it makes no sense to weigh him down with a weak synopsis from a Batman film.

This synopsis is actually quite insulting to all the fans who've waited 10 years to finally see Superman. Oh well.
rbfn04 - 8/17/2011, 8:36 PM
@Froggy exactly, man...

@LP4 please dude, nothing like Smallville. Smallville ain't even about Superman. Reminds me of Birthright, Earth One a bit. Exactly what was expected, no?
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:39 PM
@rbfn04- Smallville was about Clark Kent developing his powers and the road he took to becoming Superman.

This synopsis describes a Clark Kent who is developing his powers and isn't sure who he is or what he's doing on earth and why he's so different and alienated from everyone else.

Sounds like more whining from Superman...er sorry I mean Clark Kent. I keep forgetting this is a Clark Kent only movie. No Superman. I guess that teaser of Cavill in the suit was a cock-tease like the shitfest that was Smallville.
nailbiter111 - 8/17/2011, 8:39 PM
reused plot, reused villain, wow how could this not succeed. what a joke.
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:40 PM
I wonder if the whole movie is about Clark Kent whining? Or maybe just a quarter of it he'll be whining.

nailbiter111 - 8/17/2011, 8:40 PM
will i be charged with pirating if i show people a copy of superman and superman 2?
rbfn04 - 8/17/2011, 8:40 PM
@theWorld for real? Go ask any kid or early teen, or girls. They'll know the "world blew up, super powers' but not everything.
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:43 PM
@nailbiter111- Dude I know what you mean, I was soooooo on-board for this movie. Now this reused plot...[frick] ME.

This is lame. They're seriously going to dumb-down Superman with this lame WEAK plot from a BATMAN movie...Batman...a character who HAS NO [frick]ING POWERS. So are we to seriously see a Superman movie get weighed down with a Batman synopsis? WHY CAN'T WB MAKE A [frick]ING SUPERMAN MOVIE. [frick]!!!! Someone on CBM please become a director and go work for WB and actually make a movie for the fans. Exclude Clark Kent for once please, we've had 10 years of Clark Kent being a little baby BITCH. I'm sick of it!!!!!!!!

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGHHH!!!!
