Man of Steel attempts to win over new fans
Hopes are high for this year’s Superman movie "Man of Steel". For one, its 2006 film “Superman
Returns” didn’t live up to box-office expectations. British actor Henry Cavill, the first non-American
to play Clark Kent, may be a little pressured to make this $175 million movie worth producers’ time.
But perhaps like anyone who celebrates a milestone in life (it’s turning 75 years old this year), Clark
Kent is reportedly struggling to come to terms with his own super powers in this dark and gritty
movie by director Zack Snyder.
Judging from the plot of the latest Superman movie, the comic book superhero that inspired several
movies and TV shows wishes to gain new fans among digital natives as the story sticks to its
traditional, 1978 movie.
And if you’re too young to remember Superman, here’s an infographic that will reintroduce you to
the character that produced generations of die-hard fans.
The “Man of Steel” premieres in Philippine theaters on June 12 or one week ahead of its screening in
the United States.
