Superman, however, has never been a favorite of mine, I think because he's the hardest for me to relate to.
People love Spiderman because he's young, dumb, and makes mistakes- something we can all identify with. Batman doesn't actually have any super powers except his intelligence and resourcefulness. And if money is a super power I guess he has that. But Superman is special because he is an alien, and frankly, that's just not fair.
Man Of Steel looks like it will tackle that exact issue by making Superman much more human.
In an interview for Total Film with the director, Zack Snyder, and the actor playing Superman, Henry Cavill, they discuss Clark's humanity.
"We’ve tried to make a Superman movie where he does stuff and you go, ‘Yeah, if I was Superman, that’s what I’d do. Even though he’s an alien, he’s more relatable, more human."- Zack Snyder
I'm actually looking forward to seeing the movie, and I think the all star cast definitely helps- including: Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, and Lawrence Fishburn as editor in chief Perry White.
I know this type of post isn't typical of my blog, but I'm excited for the movie, what about you? Who's your favorite superhero?
