‘Man of Steel’ coming soon to a movie theatre near you

For lovers of comic book superheroes, the one that made the best crossover into mainstream film would arguably be Superman. Ok, so if you love your comic book characters, you’ll probably like most of the superhero movies that have been made over the years, but whereas even the latest trilogy of Batman movies appeal to a certain type of moviegoer – those who love that particular genre of fiction, for example, the Superman movies produced in the 1970s and 1980s had mass audience appeal.

Perhaps it’s the fact that Superman story is played out in the real world, rather than in a fictional world that makes the difference. Anyway, there’s no denying that the first Superman movie brought all kinds of people out to watch the film, without them needing to be a die-hard Marvel comic fan.

This is what one imagines the producers of the latest Superman incarnation will be hoping to happen again, when Man of Steel hits the theatre screens. It will be released in 2013 and is produced by Christopher Nolan – producer of the Batman trilogy of movies which saw the release of The Dark Knight Rises last summer.

David S Goyer’s script follows the familiar Superman story, where a loner journalist struggles to find his fit in the world, having moved to Metropolis after growing up on a rural farm with his adoptive parents Martha and Jonathan Kent. There’s a bit more emphasis on the Man of Steel’s origins in this version and Russell Crowe will play Superman’s real father, Jor-El. The lead is played by Henry Cavill and Lois Lane by Amy Adams.

Smaller roles also feature famous names including Kevin Costner and Diane Lane playing Jonathan and Martha Kent. Laurence Fishburne is the first African-American to play the Daily Planet editor-in-chief, Perry White.

Of course, for many filmgoers, this version of Superman will be the first they’ve seen, but it’s highly likely that many fans of the original movies will be back to see how Man of Steel cinema listings Edinburgh compares. We’ll have to wait until April though, as the release date is set for 14 April. Until then you can check out other films currently showing with a quick internet search.
