ComicBookMovie.com has an ad from Warner Bros looking for background actors and holding open casting calls in Nanaimo and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island for Man of Steel. Along with this ad they gave an official plot synopsis, which confirms the suspicions that this will be just another Superman movie. Honestly this could be used as a description for Smallville, proving to me that there really isn’t much more to do with this character. I don’t see this reboot being anything like the reset of Batman with Batman Begins. That being said I hope Goyer, Snyder and Nolan prove me wrong, I hold all of them in great esteem. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
“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.”
