I have not seen any of the original Super Man movies. Un-American? Maybe. But I was pretty young when they started and didn't care later. Then I got into Smallville and fell in love with the story of Clark Kent. I haven't watched all of Smallville yet, due to the amount of other stuff I have to do! But I have seen almost 3 whole seasons of it and own up to season 5! I hope to have the time to finish watching them this summer! I've been seeing trailers for Man of Steel and know that this is one I want to watch! It looks awesome!And it has a rockin' cast!
Here is the synopsis from Fandango:
Superman flies back onto the big screen in this Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures production directed by Zack Snyder (Watchmen), produced by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), and featuring a screenplay by David Goyer (Blade, The Dark Knight).
Born on the alien planet of Krypton, Kal-El is sent by his parents to
live on planet Earth, where he is given the name Clark by kindly farmer
Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) and his wife, Martha (Diane Lane),
who raise him as if he were their own son. As a young boy,Clark
displays incredible superpowers that instill him with a profound sense
of personal responsibility. Later, the amiable Clark (Henry Cavill)
becomes a reporter for the Metropolis newspaper "The Daily Planet," and
strikes up a friendship with crackerjack journalist Lois Lane (Amy Adams).
But when his new world is attacked by a force that humans are powerless
to defend themselves against, Clark assumes the identity of Superman
and fights to protect the entire human race. Academy Award-nominated
actor Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, Boardwalk Empire) co-stars as General Zod and Laurence Fishburne steps into the role of "Daily Planet" editor-in-chief Perry White. Russell Crowe and Christopher Meloni co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
