When the planet of Krypton is faced with imminent destruction, Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and his wife Lara Lor-Van (Ayelet Zurer) rocket their newborn son Kal-El to Earth. As he grows into a young boy in Kansas, Kal-El (Henry Cavill) (named 'Clark' by his adopted earth parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan (Kevin Costner) Kent), discovers that he has unusual powers, which he keeps hidden...until a spaceship from Krypton lands on Earth, and Krypton survivor General Zod (Michael Shannon) demands that Kal-El show himself or all Earthlings will be annihilated.

Man of Steel is a film reboot of Superman, a comic book character created by American writer Jerry Siegel and Canadian-American comic book artist Joe Shuster in DC Comic's Action Comics #1, dated June 1938. The screenplay for Man of Steel was written by American screenwriter David S. Goyer and English-American film-maker Christopher Nolan, who also produced. It was followed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). Two more sequels are in development -- Justice League, with a release date set for 2017, and Justice League Part Two, with a release date set in 2019.

No. Nolan, Goyer and director Zack Snyder are restarting the franchise, having no close ties with earlier depictions of the Superman character.

No, the Lexcorp logo is seen more than once, but Lex himself does not appear. He appears in the sequel, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Aware that, with the death of Zod, he is the last surviving Kryptonian, Superman downs a drone that he knows the Air Force is using to search for where he 'hangs his cape.'. He is confronted by General Swanwick (Harry Lennix) and assures him that he grew up in Kansas and that he can be trusted to help. Clark then returns to Smallville, and he and Martha visit Jonathan's gravesite. Martha asks him what he intends to do now, and Clark replies that he's going to find a job where he can keep his 'ear to the ground' and where people won't look twice when he goes to some dangerous place and starts asking questions. In the final scene, Clark has landed a job as a reporter at The Daily Planet and Chief Perry White (Laurence Fishburne) is introducing him to the staff. Even though he's now wearing thick, horned-rim glasses, he and Lois Lane (Amy Adams) seem to recognize each other immediately.
