The snippet of info below (via Ain’t it Cool) is neither a bird nor a plane, but is in fact the synopsis for the Zack Snyder-directed/Chris Nolan-produced take on the Superman legend, Man of Steel.

Affix your X-ray eyes on this:

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 twentysomething 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.

Thoughts? Warner Bros. have been very careful here in not giving much away at all. It does perhaps suggest that Supes doesn’t begin to channel his powers until he’s established in Metropolis and a threat against earth has been made, so that’s a deviation from the original movie’s narrative, although the many iterations of his trajectory to superhero in the comics have undoubtedly covered similar ground.

It will also be interesting to see if the film’s villain, General Zod (played this time around by the formidable Michael Shannon) is given a different revenge arc to that of the previous features.
