Clark Kent is a humanoid alien who after being transported to Earth from the dying planet of Krypton, was adopted as a child by Jonathan and Martha Kent. Raised with the values of his adoptive parents, he feels alienated because of his unique super powers and struggles to find his own place in life. When the world is attacked, he becomes the hero named Superman to protect Earth and its people.

SEQUEL(S) On June 10, 2013, it was announced that director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer would both be returning for a Man of Steel sequel, "Son of Krypton" which is being fast tracked by Warner Bros. Goyer had previously signed a three-film deal, which included Man of Steel, its sequel, and a Justice League film featuring Superman. Christopher Nolan is also expected to return as producer, albeit in a lesser role than what he had in this film.
In April 2013, Warner Bros president Jeff Robinov revealed that neither Nolan nor Bale are in involved with the film. On April 24, 2013, Snyder revealed that if Man of Steel were to be successful he would be asked to direct the film. On June 7, 2013 regarding a potential shared universe Snyder was quoted saying, “Do the DC characters exist in the universe I created? The answer is yes,” Snyder said. “In my mind, we have this fantastic character of Superman. It’s not madness that there would be others.” On June 10, 2013, it's reported that Goyer is confirmed to write the film.
