Directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan (who also directed The Dark Knight), Man of Steel is an action-packed blockbuster about the most recognised comic book hero of all time: Superman. Henry Cavill bulked up to transform himself into Clark Kent/Superman, a role previously played on the big screen by Christopher Reeve and later Brandon Routh in Superman Returns. How does he match up? Pretty well, we'd say. Cavill stars alongside an impressive cast, including four-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams as love interest Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El (Superman's dad) and Oscar nominee Laurence Fishburne as Lois' editor-in-chief at the Daily Planet. The action begins on Krypton, where Jor-El is battling to save his planet and protect his infant son. We see a young Clark Kent growing up in Kansas and struggling to adjust to his extraordinary powers and the realisation that he's not like the other kids. Or even from the same planet. Taking advice from his loving Kansas farming parents (played by Diane Lane and Kevin Costner), Clark keeps his powers hidden from everyone and tries his best to fit in. But the burning questions of who he really is, where he's from and why he's been sent here haunt Clark into his adult life. Hiding from his secret, will he embrace his powers to save the planet when Earth and his loved ones are under threat? Or will Clark's loyalties be torn when he has to battle the only two other surviving Kryptonians, General Zod and Faora? The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer & Nolan based on Superman characters published by DC Entertainment.
