Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel synopsis revealed

An open casting call leaks details of new Supes movie

In an open casting call, the premise to Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan’s Superman reboot has been leaked:

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.

If this is true, then it appears Snyder is on the path to creating a Superman that today’s audience can relate to. What do you think of the possibility of a self-doubting, more human Kat-El?
