Seven years after the release of Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns,” Warner Bros. and DC Comics are taking another crack at reviving the onscreen presence of the most recognized name in the comic kingdom. “Man of Steel,” directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill in the red and blue tights, pretends Singer’s movie never happened. The stakes for the reboot are high for many reasons, and there is a lot on the line including a big budget for the film and reputation of Snyder who, since 2006’s “300,” has endured various slings and arrows thanks to "The Watchmen" and "Sucker Punch." However, with Christopher Nolan’s name is attached as a producer, hopes are high that his involvement can yield some of that "The Dark Knight" magic. Finally, there’s little known Henry Cavill stepping into a role that many consider cursed. Suffice to say, there’s a lot more riding on Superman’s shoulders than the fate of Metropolis.
