August 17, 2011 - Man of Steel / synopsis leaks online
Scooped on Wednesday, August 17, 2011
Casting calls for extras from the Vancouver Island coastal communities of Nanaimo and Ucluelet have been issued by the production (and first reported online by the Superman Homepage.)
Here's what the call sheet is describing as the movie's 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."
This latest news story doesn't really offer much more detail about who the movie's villains are, or what crisis the world will face, but what's more interesting is wondering how the seaside Canadian towns factor into the story.
One other fact was revealed: Man of Steel will film in Vancouver (and those two towns) between the dates of September 21, 2011 to January 20, 2012.
