Does Man of Steel fly?
Reboots in the comic book movie adaptation realm have been a lot more frequent nowadays. The Amazing Spider-Man, Batman Begins and The Incredible Hulk are a few that come to mind. The Superman franchise, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, has seen its ups (the Christopher Reeve Superman films, Smallville) and downs (pretty much every Superman video game ever made, Superman Returns) when it comes to the caped hero making the leap outside of the comics. After the disappointing Superman Returns (which was considered a sequel to 1980′s Superman II), 300 and Sucker Punch director Zack Synder felt like the beloved franchise needed to start anew. With the help of writer David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Rises) and Christopher Nolan, producer/director of the Dark Knight trilogy, the highly anticipated Man of Steel was born.
