In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant 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 discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world's beacon of hope - Superman.



Man Of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne with Christopher Meloni and Harry Lennix, the reboot is slated for theaters June 14th, 2013!

Wouldn't expect anything less from the Man Of Steel. I guess his got the character down pat
thetrojan - 4/22/2012, 4:35 AM
uh oh he had the ol christopher reeves persona thing going on there,I know it was a millisecond but hey...heres hoping I am wrong.

If the creators of the superman movies dont completely destroy the christopher reeve mythos,then all superman films will reek of old idea.

christopher reeve was fine at the time,for two movies at least,but let it go please.

Acutally belive this movie to be great. It is looking good. With a solid production, they know what it takes.

Marvel and Nolan has showed the way. For every CBM success story, it undoubtedly affect the whole franchise. With higher estimation of total demand follows higher allocation of money into productions.

It will probably redeem the classic Christopher Reeves movies.

watta shit gimick!
HavocPrime - 4/22/2012, 5:39 AM
Thats really cool of him, got a good feeling he will be an awesome superman
Reverend - 4/22/2012, 6:15 AM
Mr. Cavill is a class act. When he did that photo op with that little boy who was a Superman fan I thought it was just a publicity stunt. Now, I'm convinced he's the genuine article now.

Suck-ass ;P

@BIGBMH

hahaha i was thinking the same thing Gym Jone = Jim Jone
"BALLIN" lmao
Devastator335 - 4/22/2012, 7:30 AM
Henry Cavill is so cool! He's going to be the best Superman ever! Can't wait for this movie!
Otisburg - 4/22/2012, 7:44 AM
BECAUSE the movie was such a long shoot, im sure the crew wants more than just a coin...so you'll see these on EBAY real soon...especially when even the crew knows this movie will suck.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/22/2012, 7:46 AM
@supersaiyanfan1
Just because two DC films sucked, doesn't mean they all will.
Marvel has made a lot of shitty movies but that doesn't mean that they didn't make good ones
JULEZ13 - 4/22/2012, 7:54 AM
Henry Cavill is the BEST choice to play Superman and this is just another example as to why. He is the man. And he will be the BEST Superman of all time.

Step aside Christopher Reeve! Henry Cavill is coming to take the throne!!

Cavill > Reeve

He looks more like Superman too IMO.

Not trying to start a Reeve vs. Cavill fan war, I'm just tired of everyone thinking that Reeve is the ideal Superman. Time to move on to bigger and better things.

And I also hope they replace the John Williams theme. The way this movie is sounding, I don't think it'll fit anyway.
thetrojan - 4/22/2012, 8:08 AM
totally agree julez13
complete re-boot or there is no point whatsoever
the whole world knows who superman is,he is established,now lets get creative with him.
the avengers are a hell of a lot younger than supes and therefore to see them almost exactly as their stereotypes is needed at this satge and welcomed.

Henry Cavill is a great actor in these type of roles and should play both characters well.
I want the cinema to shake when superman and zod start trading blows,and at the start of the watchmen movie,comedian and ozymandias- that was superhuman fighting going down.so that is a good sign.
thetrojan - 4/22/2012, 8:14 AM
also I need to add that In my opinion the ALL-STAR SUPERMAN by Grant Morrisson was probably the best superman book ever written.
I dont like everything Grant has written,but this was a genius book.
The animation was lousy though.

i think that when filmmakers are allowed to be artists regardless of budgets and demographics and sales figures.. we may be allowed to go to a cinema or sit at home with a new treat and not a constant retelling of the mythos.

ooops,losing the plot there

ALL-STAR SUPERMAN would have been a wonderful movie.
The film company could just bombard the world with documentaries and reminders of the Superman story and then BAM!
ALL-STAR SUPERMAN.
GreyChaos13Zero - 4/22/2012, 8:37 AM
why was Cavill walking away, great find tho?)
thewolfx - 4/22/2012, 8:54 AM
@julez

how about you wait till you see his performance before such brash assumptions

im just sayin -_-
jazzman - 4/22/2012, 9:45 AM
@THEDARKKNlGHT1939

other film studios made sh!tty Marvel films not Marvel Studio themselves.
Jollem - 4/22/2012, 10:19 AM
i want that coin
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/22/2012, 10:27 AM
@jazzman
Its a co- Production so they were still involved.
BIGBMH - 4/22/2012, 10:39 AM
I agree with thewolfx. Cavill might be amazing. He also might suck. There's a difference between being an optimistic, supportive fan and getting ahead of yourself. We have seen nothing of his performance. We don't know how the character is written. Let's wait a second before we all kneel and hand him the crown.

In regards to Reeve, there is definitely something special about his performance. He was the Superman of his era and it speaks volumes that over 30 years after his first movie as the character, most still agree that he is the best. That said, I'm excited to see if Cavill can do for modern audiences what Reeve did all those years ago. Even if he is more suitable for our era, I'm not sure if it'll be fair to call him better than Reeve because times are always changing and there will come a day when Cavill's Superman is retro and outdated. Only time will tell.
soberchimera - 4/22/2012, 10:43 AM
Sucks that they've already finished filming and we'll still have to wait an entire year to see this. Damn you Bilbo Baggins!!!!!
gamecreatorjj - 4/22/2012, 10:55 AM
i have seen cavil do like a thousand kind things since he was given the role of superman, i think he will fit in just fine
Knightrider - 4/22/2012, 12:43 PM
@Jazzman Marvel studios has made in my opinion bad films, IM2 and I thought Thor wasn't well done, especially when he arrived on Earth it felt, well cheesy. To accuse WB of what it does putting heroes on screen is hardly fair, when they helped put Supes and Batman on screen at a time no one else would.
Dev7 - 4/22/2012, 1:00 PM
I agree with Argo, the whole time superman was in plain view in what seems to be an open area while this dude focused his camera on the production crew with their umbrellas, makes no sense.
johnnymarr - 4/22/2012, 1:42 PM
Cool

jazzman - 4/22/2012, 2:00 PM
@THEDARKKNlGHT1939

Marvel Studio dont produce them movies other studio does.

@Knightrider

WB only produce Batman and Superman they dont give a sh!t about other characters that needs a movie. look at what they did to Jonah Hex and Green Lantern and now this horrible news about Lobo solo movie
LP4 - 4/22/2012, 3:26 PM
@JULEZ- I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU!!!!

On a scale of 1-100% I 120% agree with you. :)

Reeve era is DONE...FINISHED and people need to finally let that guy go. He wasn't the best or even the ideal Superman. I could never connect with his Supes.

Man of Steel will be the best Superman movie ever. Donner-heads and Routh-fans...take a hike :)
LP4 - 4/22/2012, 3:32 PM
@Jazzman- Haha I figured you'd be the most excited about the solo Lobo film? :) you're the main lobo guy here on cbm
