Looks like we're going to get the origin of Superman in the upcoming Man of Steel movie.
A casting call for the film was discovered in a Vancouver ad that gives away some of the film's plot. Seems like Clark Kent/Superman will be giving himself an introspective look into what has made him into the man/superhero that he's become.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry 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 (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin 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.
Oh, this is gonna be good! And since the movie is produced by Batman's Christopher Nolan, it will most definitely have a darker feel than the usual upbeat character that we are used to seeing.
We're hoping this will be the TRUE Superman story we've been waiting for
unlike 2006's Superman Returns.
