See our REVIEW: Man of Steel here!

Man of Steel is DC Entertainment’s first film in their DC Extended Universe, but that was done retroactively. Upon it’s release, it was just a reboot of the previous Superman films. As the white hot success of Marvel’s MCU grew, DC Entertainment knew they had to get in on the action and create their own interconnected film and TV world, and Man of Steel became the first chapter.

Man of Steel essentially is the origin story of Kal-El, the first naturally born Krypotnian child in hundreds of years. With his planet on the brink of destruction, his father puts Kal-El on a spaceship which crash lands in Kansas. As we all know, he’s adopted by Ma and Pa Kent and goes on to become Superman. Darker and grittier then any of the Superman movies before, Snyder’s take on the Man of Steel is reminiscent of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy – and for good reason, Christopher Nolan was both a producer and contributed to the story.
