SAN DIEGO —You would think that Hollywood is lined with Kryptonite. The beloved DC Comics character Superman has been a no show on the Silver Screen since "Superman Returns" in 2006. In need of a serious reboot, the Last Son of Krypton will have just that in the new "Man of Steel" movie slated to open next summer. Yesterday, Comic-Con hosted a "Man of Steel" panel that featured director Zack Snyder introducing both new footage from the film, as well as Superman/Clark Kent actor Henry Cavill.
Cavill was asked about filling the famous tights and becoming the iconic superhero. "It's a dream come true," said Cavill. "It is pretty intense." While relatively short, the footage from "Man of Steel" did feature Cavill as both a bearded Clark Kent and later as Superman locked in battle with General Zod (Michael Shannon). Lois Lane (Amy Adams) is seen embracing our hero, while Jor-El (Russell Crowe) also appeared in the demo.
Snyder commented on how this film will try to show Superman in a more down-to-earth manner. "The big challenge, of course, is if you can make people feel, 'What would you do if you were Superman? How would you feel?'" Snyder offered. "How to make it personal, I think that's the thing we went after."
Fans anxiously awaiting this Friday's opening of "The Dark Knight Rises" will get a special treat before the screening. The first trailer for "Man of Steel" will appear prior to the motion picture.
"Man of Steel" stars Henry Cavill (Superman/Clark Kent), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Kevin Costner (Jonathan Kent), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Russell Crowe (Jor-El), Michael Shannon (General Zod), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Jadin Gould (Lana Lang) and Antje Traue (Faora).
Zack Snyder directs the screenplay by David S. Goyer, based on a story by Goyer and Christopher Nolan. "Man of Steel" opens June 14, 2013.
