MAN OF STEEL (2013) DIRECTOR: Zach Snyder STARRING: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane GENRE: Action, Comic Book Movie CERT: 12A Superman is widely known to be one of the most toughest comic book heroes to translate to the big screen, especially with the hugely popular series of movies starring the late Christopher Reeves.
