My Reaction to MAN OF STEEL – Plus Nightline Special & New Posters
Well, I didn’t expect the day to come so early, but this past Thursday, I was fortunate enough to check out Warner Bros.’ highly anticipated Man of Steel for myself. After the jump I’ll be posting a short reaction to the film, but I will be posting a full length review after I’ve seen the film for a second time next Tuesday. Long story short, Man of Steel is everything that I hoped it would be, and much more. Along with my reaction is a great piece from Nightline highlighting interviews with the cast, Zack Snyder, and even Christopher Nolan. There are also three new posters that have been released for the film. We’re less than a week away from its release, so get excited! Hit the jump to check out my reaction and some other cool stuff!
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Antje Traue, and Laurence Fishburne and hits theaters next summer in IMAX 3D on June 14th, 2013.
Below is my reaction to the film:
Finally, the Last Son of Krypton gets the film that he so rightfully deserves. Many fans were weary when director Zack Snyder took the reins of the much beloved comic book character, but those fans can rest assured for the next week. On the surface, MAN OF STEEL is a story about the most revered character in all of comic book lore. But at its core, this is a story about fathers and sons, faith, discovering our own humanity and the importance of what it really means to be human. Awe inspiring visuals accompanied by intimate and stunning action sequences bring Supes to the big screen like never before. MAN OF STEEL is everything that I hoped it would be, and Henry Cavill embodies everything that the character represents both physically and emotionally. This is a film heavy in action, intimate in its storytelling, and powerfully emotional. Move over Marvel, this is the Summer of Steel.
Here is the Nightline special:
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
