Man of Steel

Man of Steel

In ‘Man of Steel,’ Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twentysomething who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. He was sent here to Earth many years ago from the planet Krypton and has since struggled with the question, “Why am I here?” His adoptive parents – Martha and Jonathan Kent (Diane Lane and Kevin Costner) – have helped shape his values but soon Clark will discover that his super powers means he also has to make very difficult decisions. When Earth comes under attack from a fellow Kryptonian named Zod, Clark must become the hero called Superman, the hope the world needs and the protector of the ones he loves.

Unfortunately, the same can't really be said of Henry Cavill's reveal, primarily because it's not even of him as Superman, but rather his journalistic alter-ego, Clark Kent.

How ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Succeeds Where ‘Man of Steel’ Failed

Captain America Superman

Admittedly, I never felt too outraged over the ending of last summer’s ‘Man of Steel.’ (Yes, there will be major spoilers ahead.) The complaints over Superman breaking the neck of his foe were certainly valid – therefore changing the very definition of the character – but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the film. That changed after seeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’

With all of its wanton destruction and neck-snapping and general grimness, 'Man of Steel' really isn't the most kid-friendly superhero movie out there. However, it has major one young fan in the 16-month old boy featured in the video above, whose joyful reaction to a key scene in the film should melt even the most cynical of hearts and remind you that as cool as superhero movies can be, they're still at their best when they're instilling wonderment in kids.
