When Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster Dark Knight trilogy came to an end, Warner Brothers needed a new superhero franchise to fill the void, and it's only logical that they chose Superman. Directed by Zack Snyder (of Watchmen and 300) and written by David S. Goyer (of the Dark Knight trilogy), Man of Steel hits theaters this Friday, June 14th, with the hopes of propelling the character back to the top of the pop-culture landscape yet again.

Starring Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as the evil General Zod, and Henry Cavill as Supes, Man of Steel looks to re-imagine the character for a new generation of fans. We’ll have to wait for the box office returns to see whether or not he's back for good, but with the trailers we've seen so far, it looks like he’s in good hands.
