With his Batman trilogy completed, director/producer Christopher Nolan has turned his attention to one of the most beloved American superheros of all time, Superman. As a producer for the upcoming film, Man of Steel (releasing in 2013), Nolan will work with director Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300) to give the franchise a much-needed makeover. As Superman's story goes, an alien infant with superhuman abilities is raised on Earth, then uses his powers to protect his adopted planet. In this movie, Superman (played by Henry Cavill) will grapple with a choice between using his power for good or being socially accepted.
