From Barnes & Noble

On June 14th, Superman will once again rock the world in The Man of Steel, a mega-major motion picture starring Henry Davill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, and Diane Lane. Recreating the core Krytonite to Earth to Daily Planet double identity story, the film captures the mythic force of this 80+-year-old narrative. In turn, this instant collectible renders the genius of director Jack Synder's reinvention of Superman, one superhero we just can't seem to get enough of.
