MAN OF STEEL: Official Plot Synopsis Revealed





Throughout the last couple of weeks, we’ve been bombarded with unofficial behind the scenes images, video and details from a few of the most highly anticipated movies hitting theaters over the next 12 months. Of course I’m talking about director Christopher Nolan‘s forthcoming batflick The Dark Knight Rises, director Joss Whedon‘s super her team-up The Avengers, and director Zack Snyder‘s Superman film, Man of Steel.

Now, thanks to the good folks over at SupermanHomepage.com, we have our first look at the synopsis for Snyder’s Man of Steel, which was revealed in an open casting call for the film. Check it out, along with the entire casting call details below!

Synopsis:

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.

 

The Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Entertainment, and Legendary Pictures feature film “Man of Steel” will be holding open casting calls in Nanaimo and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island. The film is seeking local people to work as background artists in scenes to be filmed in early October. This is fully paid work.
