While Warner Bros. is holding open casting calls in Nanaimo and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island, a plot synopsis for Superman: Man of Steel has emerged online. According to MTV, the studio is neither confirming nor denying the authenticity of the synopsis, but you can read it for yourself 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.”
The superhero movie will see Henry Cavill's Clark Kent tackle with being a being from another planet. Christopher Nolan and David Goyer (the braintrust behind The Dark Knight Rises) worked on the storyline, which will find Supes coming into his own as the world comes under attack by Michael Shannon's General Zod.
Man of Steel looks to be in tip-top shape to save audiences from boredom on June 14, 2013.
