Celebrating the “Man of Steel” Movie 10 Year Anniversary

Man of Steel

On June 14, 2013 the movie “Man of Steel” premiered in theaters, introducing the world to Henry Cavill’s Superman.

Directed by Zack Snyder, “Man of Steel” was a polarizing film that divided fans at the time of its release, with controversy surrounding many aspects of the film, not the least Superman’s decision to kill General Zod. However, ten years later, and with additional films added to the series in the way of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and both versions of “Justice League,” many now look back with fondness at Henry Cavill’s initial outing as the Man of Steel, considering it his best performance in the red cape.

The following video attempts to answer some of the more frequently asked questions received by the Superman Homepage over the past 10 years about various plot points in “Man of Steel”. The answers are culled from a variety of sources including interviews with both screenwriter David Goyer and director Zack Snyder, the official movie novelization, and the movie itself.
