When I was a kid, I bought every Superman comic fresh from the printing press. At a cost of 15 cents, the price of three of my favorite candy bars, they were expensive. But I wouldn’t miss a single adventure.
The June 14th release of the Man of Steel offers fans a new approach to the story of the man from Krypton. A “realism” approach is the claim of the producers. They have removed the comic book adaptation of the story of the indestructible super hero, and re-created him as a more realistic character.
“I can’t talk too much about Man of Steel yet, and I haven’t seen the whole thing yet, but overall it’s the story that’s most exciting. It’s a nice re-envisioning of the story of Superman leaving his homeworld and coming to this new one”.
“If you look at what Zack [Snyder] has done you’ll see that they’ve abandoned a lot of the pretense that was in the comics and asked “Can we still make this work?
The film explores Kal-el’s forced migration to earth and what it meant for him and his future. He succumbs to the realization that he is the hope for humanity.
Henry Cavill stars as the indestructible hero. The film also stars Russell Crowe as Jor-el (Kal-el’s birth father on Krypton), Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent (his adoptive parents).
Rounding out the cast is Laurence Fishburne as Daily Planet editor Perry White, and Amy Adams as reporter/love interest Lois Lane. (“She’s fun and sassy, in control, getting into trouble, and always looking for a headline!”, said Adams.
It’s a new approach to depict the human qualities of the “man of steel”. I see a box office bonanza.
