“What was I supposed to do, just let them die?” … “Maybe.”

That’s part of a conversation had between a young Clark Kent and his adoptive father Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) after Clark saves a bus full of kids from certain death, and a good indicator of what kind of movie Man of Steel, the latest take on iconic superhero Superman, aims to be.

Directed by Zack Snyder, the movie opens on the planet Krypton with Jor-El (Russell Crowe) witnessing the birth of his son and then going to try and warn a council of leaders of the planet’s impending doom before General Zod (Michael Shannon) attempts a coup and things begin escalating toward a state of chaos and destruction. Thinking quickly, Jor-El recovers a crucial item in preserving the Kryptonian race and sends it along with his newborn child, Kal-El, the first naturally born baby on the planet in centuries, off to planet Earth.

There he lives for the next 33 years, dealing with many of the things we all dealt with growing up, while also trying to keep his special abilities as secret as possible. But when General Zod finally locates the adult Kal-El (Henry Cavill) he comes to Earth to get what he’s been seeking all these years, no matter what the cost.

A trio of new Man of Steel character posters have been released by Warner Brothers, and can be seen below.

The posters show off star Henry Cavill as Superman, which we’ve seen plenty of; Michael Shannon as General Zod, which we’ve seen some of; and a nice close look at Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Superman’s father, who we haven’t seen much of…including his massive Kryptonian boomstick.

It’s easy to see why Hollywood loves a good superhero story. The genre has become so popular over the past couple of years, it’s no wonder why everyone is in such a rush to strike while the iron is hot and cash in on the trend. While the story in a superhero movie like The Dark Knight is a great one, providing the essential themes of good versus evil and the power of one man, etc., The Cape tries to follow that same method for success.

The difference between these two is that the television series The Cape, which debut on Sunday January 9, 2011, isn’t The Dark Knight. Not that it’s really intending to be, but it’s not even as good as other superhero television shows.

The premise for The Cape sounded like something that, on paper, should be a great execution of the genre. A cop gets framed for a crime he didn’t commit! He turns over to a life of heroics to protect the ones he loves!

But that sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Maybe even a little bit too familiar?
