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.
Now that 'Iron Man 3' had its run through big screens across the globe, it's time for the Man of Steel to have a go. Thanks to early, glowing reviews and a promotional campaign as grandiose as the superhero legend himself, 'Man of Steel'™ easily leaps to the top of many moviegoers' must-see lists. As excited as we know you are to see the newly rebooted Superman, we've got a prize pack filled with goods that'll have you just as pumped ... if not more!
"It's not an S. On my world, it means hope."
Everything about 'Man of Steel,' from the goosebump-inducing trailer to the slew of promotional material, has us psyched to see Superman return to the big screen. 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).
'Man of Steel'-ers beware of potential spoilers ahead...
Amidst all of the Superman hype for Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot, hitting theaters June 14, Warner Bros. unleashed a breathtaking trailer a while back that revealed a Lex Luthor Easter Egg, foreshadowing a possible appearance from the Man of Steel's famed rival down the road. But now it looks like we'll get to see another MAJOR DC character teased in 'Man of Steel'... and this one's a superhero.
There was a time when superheroes were associated with just one actor (Christopher Reeve, for example). Of course, in the age of reboots, we're getting pretty used to there being multiple actors as Batmen and Supermen
