Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Look! Up in the sky! Who is it?…you know full well who I’m talking about right? But this isn’t your father’s Superman. Earlier this year two brief teasers for Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot Man of Steel were released and they got started quite a buzz. Starring an impressive cast let by Henry Cavill as the titular MoS, Snyder looks to take us up up and away to a Superman story right for the times and to please scores of comics fans. This looks like it’s gonna rock…enjoy!
Zack Snyder is at the helm for this reverent and glorious looking new Superman film. But while he’s given up Dawn of the Dead, Watchmen and 300 (which we just love all three) he’s also given us the beautiful but bland and boring Sucker Punch. Whether it’s a sign of approval or a way to assuage fans’ fears Christopher Nolan (squee!) is on board producing and involvement exactly can’t hurt things. Also, he co-wrote the story so that should all but guarantee the substantive narrative and free Snyder to make it look all pretty and actiony.
Cavill is joined by an amazing cast including Kevin Costner, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe and Michael Shannon as General Zod. Warner Bros. is still full steam ahead to bring Man of Steel to theaters (probably everywhere) kicking off Summer next year on June 14, 2013. Are you ready??? Better question, who’s not ready??
