There’s not much in the way of new revelations here, but an updated synopsis for Superman’s new adventure, Man Of Steel, has been revealed.

We’re over a year away still until the release of Zack Snyder’s take on Superman, Man Of Steel, although production is all but done on the project. There’s just the small matter of the extensive post-production work to deal with.

Over at DC, there’s been a website relaunch though, and part and parcel of that has been the introduction of a page dedicated to the forthcoming Superman adventure. There’s not much there at the moment, inevitably, but there is this new synopsis, which gives us a clue as to what to expect from the movie.

It reads:
 
“Superman takes to the skies once more as acclaimed actor Henry Cavill (The Tudors, Immortals) dons the suit, cape and S-shield of the MAN OF STEEL.

With an all-star cast that includes Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as John and Martha Kent, Clark’s earthbound parents; Oscar® winner Russell Crowe as Superman's Kryptonian father Jor-El; The Fighter's Amy Adams as intrepid Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane; The Matrix's Laurence Fishburne as editor Perry White; and Boardwalk Empire's Michael Shannon as Superman’s otherworldly archenemy General Zod, populations from Smallville to Metropolis are psyched for Superman. With the directorial stylings of 300's Zack Snyder and the superheroic production team behind Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, the sky's the limit for the last son of Krypton”

It doesn’t tell you a fat lot, granted, but we’ll keep you posted on the film as we learn more. The DC Comics page is here.
