We may have our first official plot concept to pass along to fans in regards to Warner Bros. Pictures' Man of Steel. With director Zack Snyder still early into the shooting process for the next Superman adventure, all we've had to report on plot details is the actors' names attached to their respective characters. Until now.
Superman Homepage is reporting that an open casting call has showed up in the Vancouver Island area for production that will be taking place from September to January 2012. Asking specifically for older extras who could double for loggers and commercial fisherman, the casting call also had the following plot concept attached to it.
Plot Concept: 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.
We probably won't have to wait long before Warner Bros. Pictures either confirms or denies this plot concept. Stay tuned, Maniacs. And if you are a Canadian resident and would like to be part of the casting call, click here for more information.
