Man of Steel

7. Man of Steel

This is the film I’m most curious about for the coming summer because I want to see if Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder can redeem Superman from the 2006 disappointment.  While Superman Returns paid a great homage to the original franchise, the plot suffered and the story dragged on too long.  Screenwriter David S. Goyer stated that he and the Nolan brothers have tried to reinvent Superman in the similar fashion he and the Nolans reinvented Batman.  Henry Cavill (Immortals) stars as Clark Kent/ Superman in a star-studded supporting cast made up of Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe and Laurence Fishburne.  Apparently, a Justice League film adaptation is riding on this film’s box performance.
