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.
While struggling to discover his true identity and purpose, Clark Kent 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.
How many superpowers does Superman have? So many that you could create an entire series of 'Man of Steel' featurettes on the subject and not even begin to get to the bottom of it. Three new videos have arrived online, each highlighting one of the character's powers and showing off a bunch of new footage in the process.
With 'Man of Steel' only a month away (and the the juggernaut release of 'Iron Man 3' in the rearview mirror), the marketing for Zack Snyder's new Superman movie is officially in full swing. A new TV spot for the highly anticipated film has arrived and it shows off a ton of big moments that the previous trailers have been hiding.

And now, as we're nearly a month away from actually seeing this latest reboot of the saga, Warner Bros. has delivered a brand-new 'Man of Steel' poster banner and some inspirational words from our hero's birth father, Jor-El (Russell Crowe).
With 'The Avengers' and 'Iron Man 3,' Marvel now owns the records for the two biggest opening weekends of all-time. They've had an embarrassment of riches with their films and it all started with a plan to lead their superhero properties into one epic franchise. While Warner Bros. has found success with the 'Dark Knight' trilogy, they've had difficulty launching their own epic franchise, 'Justice League.' So what words of advice did Marvel head Kevin Feige have for team Warner Bros.? Time for some unsolicited advice!
'Man of Steel'-ers beware of potential spoilers ahead...
