The superhero blockbuster will be rebooting the Superman franchise, and if all goes well at the box office next month, then it stands to set up a new DC Cinematic Universe, giving Warner Bros. a counterpart to Marvel’s game-changing Universe.
The studio have been doing a brilliant job in recent weeks in stepping up their campaign ahead of its release. And now we’ve got another epic TV spot to share, along with the new Kryptonian Glyph Generator, which will help you discover your inner superhero.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark 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.
Henry Cavill is of course front and centre as the Man of Steel himself. And starring alongside him is a fantastic ensemble, led by Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Richard Schiff, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, and Laurence Fishburne.
Snyder is directing from a script penned by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Trilogy), who co-wrote the story with Christopher Nolan.
Man of Steel will be released in 2D, 3D, IMAX, and IMAX 3D on June 14th in the US and UK. And it’s going to be mind-blowingly epic. A must-see movie of the year.
