More Details for ‘Man of Steel’ Surface About Film’s Plot

In a memo for the Canadian casting call more plot details for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel have been outlined.  For the most part the details are still in line with a post from a few months ago where the film’s plot was compared to the Superman: Birthright series.  Basically, old Supe doesn’t really know why he was sent to Earth with his retardedly awesome powers.  Through internal struggles he has to decide to use his powers for good, or use them to be the God that he could be while living on our crappy, now super power having planet.  For the full write up head on down below, and once you read it let us know what you think.  Yay, or Nay?  You’ve kind of been digging this take on the Man of Steel…

Man of Steel Plot Synopsis from Canadian Casting Call

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time.  Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething 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.
