DETROIT (WWJ) – The new film Man of Steel brings Superman back to the big screen for the first time in years!
As WWJ entertainment reporter Terri Lee tells us, the former metro-Detroiter who wrote the screenplay has just made history.
Written by Ann Arbor native David S. Goyer, with this film, he becomes the only person to write films about both Batman and Superman.
Man of Steel embodies the familiar elements that fans of the Superman character – and story – know, love and expect. Still, it isn’t a remake of another Superman film.
It’s a fresh take on the familiar story, and in this one, Henry Cavill stars as the Man of Steel, Amy Adams is Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne takes on the role of Daily Planet editor Perry White … and Michael Shannon is General Zod … who tracks the ‘man of steel” to Earth.
While plenty of kids have two sets of parents you may wonder how Superman’s parents groomed him to become a superhero.
Clark gets his DNA from another galaxy, but he gets his character from Jonathan. Russell Crowe stars as Jor-El, Clark’s birth father.
