SYNOPSIS

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.

  1. They’re not really giving much away, though, are they?

  2. Sounds like maybe Superman will be caught in the middle of a war and struggles with should he use his powers and get involved.

  3. Sooo not an origin film.. good. But still has that hollywoody overcome all odds underdog vibe to it. Which is probably necessary with a hero who is unstoppable. . . but it would have been cool to see Snyder to wild with a fully developed superman against saaay Amazo or Metallo or something. But overall i’m happy.. at least they didn’t pull a spidey.

  4. Sounds like he will be faced with a decision to either join Zod and spread Kryptonian power, rebuild Krypton on earth, or to save it and fight Zod, he will probably be faced with getting beaten to death or going along with Zods plan, and he will risk himself, sacrifice himself to save earth, but obviously because Superman is Superman he will over come and win.

    I could be wrong, but if I’m not, then this movie will rock peoples socks off.

    I can see it now…ahhhh
