The stars were out in full force for the European première of Man Of Steel. The reboot of the iconic Superman saga is sure to be the film of the summer, with Henry Cavill taking the lead role as Clark Kent/Superman and Adam Adams in tow as Lois Lane. Both braved the weather along with fellow stars Russell Crowe and Michael Shannon, director Zack Snyder and co-writer/producer Christopher Nolan.
Fans queued up over night despite the weather to catch a glimpse of the Hollywood stars whilst Cavill and co made their way down the Blue Carpet, posing for pictures with fans and signing autographs. Once again London showed the world how to do film premières, even in-spite of the rain!
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman and Amy Adams as Lois Lane, under the direction of Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen).
A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Oscar® nominee Diane Lane and Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner whilst Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne stars as Daily Planet Editor Perry White.
Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Ayelet Zurer, and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe.
