Man of Steel
Director: Zack Snyder
Cast: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe
Origin: United States
Just in time for Superman’s 75th anniversary, director Zack Snyder gives the franchise yet another theatrical facelift, with a cast of familiar faces in iconic roles: Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as original Superman dad Jor-El, Kevin Costner as adoptive Superman dad Jonathan Kent, and many more. This looks like the darkest, grimmest, most exciting Superman reboot to hit the big screen, an expansive (and expensive) blockbuster that dodges Superman’s cheesiest aspects and addresses the hero on a grander scale than ever before.
