HOLLYWOOD SPY EXCLUSIVE SPOTLIGHT ON "MAN OF STEEL" WITH HENRY CAVILL, AMY ADAMS, KEVIN COSTNER, RUSSELL CROWE, MICHAEL SHANNON, DIANE LANE AND LAURENCE FISHBURNE

So, my movie fans, are you ready for this summer's biggest action adventure MAN OF STEEL? Coming from Zack Snyder, the director of revolutionary epic 300, enchanting animated tale GUARDIANS OF GA'HOOLE and superhero drama WATCHMEN, the $225 million film, which will trace the origins of everybody's beloved superhero Superman, is about to hit the big screens worldwide this June!

 MAN OF STEEL
SUPER MAN STORY
Clark Kent is a journalist who was adopted as a child by Jonathan and Martha Kent after he was transported to Earth from the dying planet of Krypton. Raised with the values of his adoptive parents, he feels alienated because of his unique super powers and struggles to find his own place in life. When the world is attacked, he becomes the hero named Superman to protect Earth and its people!

 MAN OF STEEL
HENRY CAVILL IS SUPERMAN
Magnetically dashing Henry Cavill from THE TUDORS and IMMORTALS stars as Clark Kent  and Superman, a Kryptonian sent to Earth by his parents as an infant to survive the destruction of his homeworld Krypton. He is raised by Smallville, Kansas farmers, Martha and Jonathan Kent and becomes Earth's greatest superhero, Superman. British star Cavill was cast as Superman, making him the first non-American actor to be cast in the role. Cavill was on the shortlist for the 2006 film "Superman Returns", but lost the part to Brandon Routh.  Dylan Sprayberry was cast as 13-year-old Clark Kent while 11-year-old Cooper Timberline was cast as the 9-year-old Clark Kent in June. Matthew Goode, Zac Efron, Armie Hammer and Matt Bomer were on the final shortlist for the role before Henry won it! Henry changed his body drastically for the job! His muscles are safe since the film won't feature any kryptonite!
AMY ADAMS IS LOIS LANE
Reporter for the Daily Planet newspaper and love interest of Clark Kent. Delightful Amy Adams was selected from a list of actresses that included Olivia Wilde and Mila Kunis, even though she is almost ten years older than Cavill.
SUPERMAN CAST
Michael Shannon is General Zod: A Kryptonian general and megalomaniac with the same superpowers as Superman. Viggo Mortensen was previously considered for the role. Diane Lane is Martha Kent and Kevin Costner is Jonathan Kent: The adoptive parents of Superman. Laurence Fishburne is Perry White: The Editor in Chief of the Daily Planet and the boss of Clark Kent and Lois Lane. Fishburne is the first African American to play Perry White in a live-action film. Antje Traue is Faora: A Kryptonian female associate and follower of Zod. Ayelet Zurer is Lara Lor-Van: The biological mother of Superman and loyal wife to Jor-El. Julia Ormond had previously been announced as cast, but dropped out.  Connie Nielsen was in negotiations for the role before Ormond was cast. Russell Crowe is Jor-El: The biological father of Superman. Sean Penn and Clive Owen were also considered for the role. Christopher Meloni plays Colonel Hardy!

SUPERMAN TIDBITS
If the film proves successful it might lead to JUSTICE LEAGUE being turned into a live action film too bringing DC's most powerful superheroes together in one film! Zack Snyder has gathered quite a stunning group of helpers which includes director of photography Amir Mokri (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”), editor David Brenner (“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”), and multiple Academy Award winning costume designer James Acheson (“Restoration,” the “Spider-Man” films) and costume designer Michael Wilkinson (“Watchmen,” “300”). The music is being composed by Academy Award winning composer Hans Zimmer (“The Lion King"). From Guillermo del Toro to Robert Zemeckis, Ben Affleck and Darren Aronofsky, the negotiations with possible directors lasted for years before Snyder took the job! The film will contain references to the existence of other superheros, alluding to the possibility of a further DC Universe!

  1. WOW! You know darling that my major problem with Superman has always been that travesty of a costume he wore. Now this is a Superman I can get behind of (or in front of, or under).

    1. it's a nice rubber costume, isn't it? :) And Henrilicious Cavill looks swell in it!

    2. He looks mighty fine without his shirt on too. I'm hoping for some partial nudity in this one. At least a shot or two of his bum would be nice :)

    3. he did muscle up for this particular role. He thought he wouldn't win the audition because he wasn't big enough, but he did and later on did tones of buffing up, although he did already have some muscles from IMMORTALS.

  2. Cautiously optimistic about this one - really not sure why we need yet another origin story, and some of the script rumours I've been hearing seem to distance it from the comic book canon, but the trailers at least look great.

    1. they're also distancing the film from the old ones - making this a total reboot of the franchise.

  3. Magnetically dashing...I concur. :)

    I can't say I've ever watched any of the Superman movies before, but I may have to check this one out. It will all be new to me. :)

  9. I think I'm the only person not excited about Superman. He's just not that super to me. But that new leather outfit of his, that I dig!

    1. in the army of morbidly dark and evil and thus dangerous superheroes like Batman and Ironman, Superman is the only light example and the only essence of goodness and innocence in today's evil world

  10. Not a big Superman fan but Christopher Nolan had a hand in this film so I may have to check it out :)

  12. I don't like his hips. Could it be he's a bit too short?
    Okay, I just miss Chris Reeve.
    But I will go and watch this movie on my birthday. I hope it doesn't kill me.

    1. P.S. And I still think it should've been Superblue, but I'm biased.

  13. "the negotiations with possible directors lasted for years before Snyder took the job!"

    Actually the negotiation didn't take that long, when Nolan came on board as a producer, he had a short list of directors he wanted to interview. There were Duncan Jones, who turned down the interview because he felt he wasn't too well experienced enough in the visual effects. Ben Affleck also turn down the gig because he felt the same. Aronofsky was rumored as possible director but he was already prepping for The Wolverine shoot and so they didn't even consider him. Snyder was next on the list and he accepted the role after a long meeting with Nolan and David Goyer.

    After Superman Returns, Bryan Singer was still under contract to direct a follow up which would have been named Superman: Man of Steel and it would've followed the storyline of Returns. Warner wasn't too thrill of the performance of that film but they thought Singer can still churn out a hit with the second film. When Nolan came on board, Warner Bros., decided to terminate their contract with Singer.

    I'm not too thrill with another origin story but I trust Nolan and Snyder and hoping for a great Superman flick.
