Man Of Steel Graces The Cover Of EW: New Story Details Revealed


EW unveiled the cover to their June issue. The magazine will run down some of the year’s biggest films, but one movie to beat out all the others for the coveted…cover. That movie was the Man of Steel and its leading man Henry Cavill.

EW also posted a few choice quotes from the issue. Zack Snyder lays some speculation to rest by saying “I’ll be honest with you, there’s no Kryptonite in the movie.” The site also teased some footage they saw that featured plenty of “building-smashing, train-slinging, heat-vision-blasting battles to cut through the emotional heaviness.” Undoubtedly the biggest revelation from the site’s rundown was the new story details that show that Snyder and company are going to do something a little different with the character. I underlined one of the more interesting parts. It’s a slight tweak from what we’ve seen in the comics and other movies:

This film reveals that even on Krypton, young Kal-El was a special child, whose birth was cause for alarm on his home planet. (More on that in the magazine) And once on Earth, his adoptive parents, Ma and Pa Kent (Kevin Costner and Diane Lane), urge him not to use his immense strength – even in dire emergencies — warning that not every human would be as accepting of him as they are. So Clark Kent grows up feeling isolated, longing for a connection to others, and constantly hiding who he is. As a result, Man of Steel presents the frustrated Superman, the angry Superman, the lost Superman. “Although he is not susceptible to the frailties of mankind, he is definitely susceptible to the emotional frailties,” Cavill says.
