'Man of Steel' Official Synopsis Reveals Superman's Internal Struggles

Aug 18, 2011

An open casting call for extras on Vancouver Island for Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman movie Man of Steel has put forth a meatier synopsis for the film than we've seen previously, revealing the internal struggles Clark Kent will face in this film as he comes to terms with his powers and what he must use them for. Check it out below ...

“In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (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 (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.”

That attack will come from the familiar villain General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and his right-hand woman Faora (Antje Traue). Perhaps they'll bring along some of their alien friends too.

Man of Steel hits theaters on June 14th, 2013.
