Warner Bros. recently premiered the first clip from this month's Man of Steel. It debuted on Ellen and features Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White. Historicallly, Lane has been portrayed as a plucky reporter who's always out for a good story, while White is her stern editor-in-chief. The clip reveals that the dynamic between the two still fits that mold.
Lois is getting reprimanded by White for disobeying orders. Yeah, that sounds like the Lois we know.
Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.”
Man of Steel opens in theaters June 14.
