‘Man of Steel’ Story Description

Warner Brothers Pitures’ capsule description of the in-production MAN OF STEEL comes via the Superman Homepage:
MAN of Steel_CAVILL_large“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. There will be some casting for speaking roles in Vancouver, however this open casting call is for extras only.

“Man of Steel” is currently filming in the Chicago, Illinois area and shooting will move to British Columbia on September 21, 2011. Filming will continue in Vancouver and surrounding areas through January 20, 2012.”

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.
