"Man of Steel" Casting Call! Interesting Plot Revealed! 


Thanks to our friends at supermanhomepage.com, we learn some really cool information surrounding the plot of "Man of Steel," the Superman film directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan.

The Warner Bros. film starring Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel will be holding open casting calls in Nanaimo and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island. Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Julia Ormond, Russell Crowe, Chris Meloni, Harry Lennix and Laurence Fishburne complete the cast of the D.C. Entertainment superhero. "Man of Steel" will fly to theaters on June 14, 2013.

Right now, the film is seeking local people as extras, this will be fully paid work. "Man of Steel" will move its production to British Columbia from Chicago on September 21, 2011 and will continue filming in the area until January 20, 2012.

Here's the interesting description about the plot:

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone's imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question - Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as "Superman," not only to shine as the world's last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
