THE MAN OF STEEL Will Be Another Goddamned Origin Story

Is America so clueless of Superman’s origins that we need to see them again?

For those hoping to skip out on the obligatory Krypton blows up/Baby Kal-El gets discovered in a field stuff in The Man of Steel, tough luck. Diane Lane, who plays Ma Kent in Zack Snyder’s take on the Superman story, explains:

“I read the script under lock and key… I was locked in a room with the script and was only allowed three hours with it. I nailed it into my memory. I’m really excited. I’m really not allowed to talk much about it, I think, but it does cover the entire range of years, from infancy on.”

Sigh. Maybe this will be quick flashback business, and not a whole first act? We’ll find out soon enough - as much as the script is under lock and key, this stuff always leaks.
