MAN OF STEEL STORY
Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant
planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary
abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a MAN OF STEEL, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world's beacon of hope - Superman.
