Although this summer has been full of highly-anticipated blockbusters, 'Man of Steel' may be the one that has worked fans into the biggest tizzy. The long-overdue follow-up to Bryan Singer’s 'Superman Returns,' conceived as a reimagining of the character from the ground up, promises the kind of moral complexity of the last three Batman movies, while still retaining the energy and frenetic action of, well, all of the earlier Superman movies. Director Zack Snyder created a singular vision for Superman’s beginnings, rebranding the character as an outsider struggling to find his place in a world that he knows is not his own.
At the recent Los Angeles press day, we got to speak with the cast and crew of 'Man of Steel.' In addition to discussing the challenge of bringing Superman back to life, the actors talked about their physical and psychological roles within the film, while the filmmakers offered their perspective on why the character endures – and why that enduring persona had to be reinvented for a new generation.

Yesterday, it became clear that DC and Warner Bros. were intent on following the Marvel model for successfully building a superhero movie universe. So does that extend to ripping off Marvel's fondness for teasing their upcoming projects with a 'Man of Steel' post-credits scene at the conclusion of the film? The answer may surprise you.

'Man of Steel' Review

I believe a man can fly -- and beat the living hell out of Michael Shannon for close to 40 compounded minutes in ways hitherto unseen on film. But Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' is no mere slugfest. It goes for broke, faces the legend and tackles the iconography of one of modernity's largest-shared myths, Kal-El of Krypton, on its own terms. It is among the finest "franchise reboots" of all time, which may sound like a bit of a backhanded compliment until you realize that this is, in fact, a genre unto itself. It manages, somehow, to be "the same but different," a new film that everyone under the yellow sun knows from beginning to end. It is the film of summer 2013.

The biggest problem facing 'Man of Steel' from the get-go was how to make Superman relatable to an audience who likes their heroes flawed and human. How can you possibly relate to a near-invincible being who can fly and shoot lasers out of his eyes? Simple: you ground him in the real world and let the audience see him struggle with his enormous powers. But don't take our word for it -- an excellent new featurette goes into a little more detail.
