It’s a long way off yet, but promotion has begun for Man of Steel
which will be released in the summer of 2013. The logo has been released with a shiny metallic tone and a Facebook page
has been launched. Hopefully this means that more updates will be released in the near future.Zack Snyder
is directing the flick, which indicates that it will have a unique visual element. Henry Cavill
stars as the man of steel himself, while Amy Adams
plays Lois Lane. Kevin Costner
and Diane Lane
star as Jonathan and Martha Kent respectively. Michael Shannon
takes on the nemesis role as General Zod and Russell Crowe
will play Superman’s father.
The American release has been lined up for June 14th 2013, although it is expected that Man of Steel will release in other parts of the world around the same time. Will Man of Steel find its place in a market that is becoming saturated with superheroes and origin stories? Time will tell.
