Directed by Zack Snyder Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon
Now that Marvel has proved superhero assambles can succeed, DC wanted in on the action and as a first measure rebooted Superman on their way towards a Justice League movie. Some mighty talented names have been working on this from Snyder to Christopher Nolan and writer David S. Goyer (Dark City, Blade). Man Of Steel is a solid blend of drama and epic action with a great supporting role from Russell Crowe. The way of depicting our hero's childhood on Earth with constant backflashes doesn't work as seemlessly as you'd hope but in the end it's a minor problem. I just think linear storytelling might've been better in this case.
