Official Synopsis

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (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 (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (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 has been quoted saying that to prepare for the role he read " Birthright", "Red Sun" and "The Death and Return Of Superman".

In the Jor-El voice over teaser trailer, Russel Crowe is reciting a line from Grant Morrison's All-Star Superman.

Hans Zimmer was named to score the film in June 2012.

On January 23rd 2013, the MPAA gave "MAN oF STEEL [2013]" a rating of PG-13 "for intense sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, and for some language."

As of Feb. 19. 2013, iMDB is listing "Man of Steel" with a run time of 148 minutes. This is approximately 8 minutes longer than Batman Begins and 4.5 minutes shorter than The Dark Knight.

People argue about this film everyday, so I decided to review it to give my opinions on the film without having to do a back and forth with another viner.I liked Man of Steel. Was it perfect? No. Honestly, I didn't like it that much when I first saw it. I blame that on the Dark Knight trilogy. After the Nolan trilogy, I compared EVERY superhero movie to TDK, and since I l...
