The world’s first superhero. Always a good guy. Always classically good-looking. Always a clean-cut, upbeat ‘gee wizz ‘ kinda guy.
This is not that Superman.
Krypton is a planet about to self destruct. The inhabitants have been tampering with their planet’s core, against the advice of their own scientific community and are now paying the ultimate price. In this world, children are not born but created. They are created to serve a single purpose in their society and there have been no natural births in over 300 years. Jor-El (Crowe) is an elite scientist and he and his wife have produced a son the old-fashioned way. This child,Kal-El/Clark Kent (Cavill) is only a newborn when his father sends him into space in the hope of finding some kind of life away from his dying home planet.
