Yesterday marked as a very special day for fans of the DC Extended Universe as Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel flew into theaters four years ago, thus launching the DC Films universe that we have today. To celebrate the 4-year anniversary of the launch of the new Superman franchise, Snyder shared a behind-the-scenes image of Henry Cavill as the Last Son of Krypton on his Vero page.
“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.”
Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is available on Blu-Ray/DVD as well as on Digital HD.
Cavill will be reprising the role of Superman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, starring Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Amber Heard as Mera, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielson as Queen Hippolyta and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon, which opens in theaters on Friday, November 17.
