Warner Bros. has released the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, “Superman: Man of Steel.” Nothing too mindblowing here, aside from the even further confirmation that General Zod will be the new baddie in this film. As expected, it will also feature a new origin story of the Superman growing up in Smallville.
Official Plot Synopsis:
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.
“Superman: Man of Steel” is due out June 14th, 2013.
