First Clip from MAN OF STEEL is Big on Character, Short on Action and Absent a Superman

     June 4, 2013


We’ve seen a lot of action from Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel in the last few weeks by way of trailers and TV spots, but the first clip brings the energy level way, way down.  In a nice showcase of the acting ability of the stars embedded in a big comic book actioner, Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne exchange harsh words as reporter Lois Lane and editor Perry White.  It’s a nice reminder of the caliber of this cast and that strong character work is certain to be found amidst the heat vision, explosions and super punches.

Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon and Russell Crowe, opens in 3D June 14th.  Hit the jump to watch the first clip. 

The first clip from Man of Steel comes to us via Bleeding Cool:

Here’s the official synopsis for Man of Steel:

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