"Man of Steel" (2013) is a high-octane reboot of the Superman story, directed by Zack Snyder. The film kicks off on the dying planet Krypton, where Kal-El, the last of his kind, is sent to Earth by his father, Jor-El, as Krypton faces destruction.
Kal-El's adoptive parents, the Kents, raise him with love and instill values that shape him into a hero. As an adult, Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) struggles with his alien identity, yearning for a purpose.
When General Zod (Michael Shannon), a ruthless Kryptonian, comes to Earth seeking Kal-El and a world engine to terraform Earth into a new Krypton, Clark must embrace his destiny as Superman.
With breathtaking visuals, gripping action sequences, and a brilliant portrayal of Superman by Cavill, "Man of Steel" offers a thrilling cinematic experience, setting the stage for future DC Extended Universe films...
