The film is going to be a visually exciting experience in all formats: 2D, 3D and IMAX," said director Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Sucker Punch), in a press release confirming the news. "Anticipating how audiences today embrace 3D, we designed and photographed the movie in a way that would allow Man of Steel to captivate those movie goers, while respecting fans who prefer a more traditional cinematic experience. We’ve taken great measures to ensure the film and the story come first, and 3D is meant as an enhancement."
Man of Steel has been written by David S. Goyer (Batman Begins) from a story by Goyer and Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises), who also produces. The film sees Henry Cavill (The Tudors) stepping into the role of the Last Son of Krypton alongside a supporting cast that includes Amy Adams (The Fighter) as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road) as General Zod, Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves) as Jonathan Kent, Diane Lane (Unfaithful) as Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) as Perry White and Russell Crowe (Gladiator) as Jor-El.
Man of Steel is currently slated for release on June 14th, 2013.
