The Official Synopsis For Zack Snyder’s ‘Man of Steel’

Well, it would seem that unofficial synopsis we reported on a while back was mostly correct. Thanks to a casting call sheet for extras to be in the upcoming Man of Steel, we’ve been given our official synopsis for the film. In case anyone doesn’t want anything spoiled, we’ve got it after the jump.

From the casting call sheet:

“In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (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 (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.”

Like I thought, it’s an origin story. This seems to contradict earlier statements saying that Snyder wanted his Superman “to be older,” but hey that could have changed. Previously I had stated that I was extremely hopeful that this would follow the same origin story told in Superman: Birthright, and the synopsis definitely seems to reflect that. Hopefully this also means we’ll at least get a teaser trailer soon, but I doubt that given the delay of the release to June 2013.

Well, what do you guys think? Comment away!
