The Epic Renaissance of the “Man of Steel”

“One day, you’re gonna have to make a choice. You have decide what kind of man you want to grow up to be. … Whoever that man is, good character or bad, is gonna change the world.”
–Mr. Kent

“You will give the people an ideal to strive towards. They’ll race behind you, they will stumble. They will fall. … But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.”


It’s a bird! It’s a Plane! It’s Super-I mean, It’s the Man of Steel!

The day has arrived when the superhero of all superheroes will again appear as a heroic savior from the skies. As the description the late Jay Morton coined reads, he’s, “faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.” The, “man of steel” will attempt to protect the people of Earth from General Zod and his army while wearing a modernized (by Kryptonian standards) blue suit with a red cape, donning the most famously symbolic “S” ever known.

How will fans react to Henry Cavill’s adaptation? Was he up to this enormous challenge?

Music is a vitally important partner to any television show or movie featuring Superman. The opening few seconds of John Williams’ score for the 1978 motion picture is definitively beautiful as it sets the stage for a grand journey. Hans Zimmer, a composing mastermind and movie soundtrack maestro, put his orchestral talents to work to create the right sound that had to be, quite literally, super!

In the short video below, Zimmer describes a new listening technology he helped develop when he composed the, “Man of Steel” soundtrack.

Innovative- Brilliant-Wow!

Did Zimmer write a new, modern anthem or score that will overtake the iconic, “Superman” soundtrack by John Williams? No, because that task is essentially impossible. However, as the music from the multiple trailers and his past movie scores have indicated, the new soundtrack will undoubtedly be epic. That’s an investment you can take to the bank.

Will, “Man of Steel” be as epic as the soundtrack? Will Kal-El fly off the screen without the assistance of 3D glasses?

June 14, 2013: The time has come to buy the tickets and watch the greatest superhero of all-time grow up in confusing wonderment on a strange planet, somehow meet Lois Lane and then battle the powerfully evil General Zod and his destructive army.

As Jimmy’s Daily Planet’s current headline indicates, the expectations for this Super-I mean, “Man of Steel,” are epic.

Will we join him in the sun…?
