MAN OF STEEL: Open Casting Call & Official Synopsis

Warner Brothers, DC Entertainment and Legendary Pictures have announced that Man of Steel will be holding open casting calls in Nanaimo and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island.

Filed Under: Superman

The film is seeking local people to work as background artists in scenes to be filmed in early October. This is fully paid work. There will be some casting for speaking roles in Vancouver, however this open casting call is for extras only. "Man of Steel" is currently filming in the Chicago, Illinois area and shooting will move to British Columbia on September 21, 2011. Filming will continue in Vancouver and surrounding areas through January 20, 2012.

The official synopsis for Man of Steel reads as follows: "In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. 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."

supermanallstar - 8/17/2011, 8:02 PM
Pretty much how a smallville movie or ending SHOULD have happened. Seriously that just screams smallville, We might get the suit for what like.... 20 minutes? Still... better then some crappy CGI i guess :P
CaptainDC - 8/17/2011, 8:08 PM
Now that's a synopsis, can't wait

I found out about this two days ago. I live in Nanaimo! I sent Andrea my application :D:D:D:D:D:D:D [frick]ING. Stoked.
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:09 PM
This sounds like the same synopsis we heard MONTHS ago...[frick]. So it is completely an origin story...damn. I just want to see Superman hitting something.

Oh well...

Bryan Singer, Brian Peterson, Kelly Souders and yes...even DONNER...

This is the part that pisses me off the most-

"Clark struggles with the ultimate question - Why am I here?"

Please god- NO MORE [frick]ING SELF DISCOVERY CRAP. We've already had to suffer through 10 years of Clark's lame self-discovery. I'm sick of Clark asking himself questions and trying not to use his powers. He needs to be SUPERMAN. This should NOT be a 'Clark Kent-film' Clark Kent had 10 years already to be a little puss and not even wear the suit- EVER. Now it's SUPERMAN'S turn.

[frick] CLARK KENT.

"But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack." 'nuff said.
thereverendjonnynemo - 8/17/2011, 8:20 PM
its amazing how these synpsis are awesome at saying nothing.

thatcoldblackcloud - 8/17/2011, 8:21 PM
Sounds like we'll have to sit through 145 mins of foreplay before Cavill puts on the Supeman duds and takes on zod. *****YAWN******
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:21 PM
^ nuff said.
Macksimus - 8/17/2011, 8:23 PM
Wow, that's the most half-assed movie synopsis I ever read.

It's basically just a synopsis of Superman in general.

DCfan89 - 8/17/2011, 8:23 PM
seriously? ugh........
valeriesghost - 8/17/2011, 8:25 PM
not to upset about this. actually isn't this exactly what everyone expected after what we've seen so far?
rbfn04 - 8/17/2011, 8:28 PM
@theWorld not everyone know superman origin. Not the whole story anyways.

IMHO it's good they said CLARK needs to become Superman. For some reason, it screams "Clark is who I am, superman what I can do" to me...
WellDrawn - 8/17/2011, 8:28 PM
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:29 PM
This is basically Smallville: The Movie

Only positive thing is- We'll probably see Clark put the suit on at the very end of the very last scene in the movie while he goes to the bank ;P

Superman in live action is always sh*t and I know people are going to rag on me about what i said but it's true. I mean we've suffered enough with Routh and Welling. Superman is FINALLY leaving Reeve's shadow. But then...we get this utterly shitty synopsis?

Give me a [frick]ing break. WB lose the rights to Superman, you assholes don't deserve that character.
LP4 - 8/17/2011, 8:32 PM
Well I for one am not interested in a Clark Kent self-discovery movie. I HAD high hopes, now...[frick] this and [frick] snyder and [frick] WB.
BooYah - 8/17/2011, 8:32 PM
I should defintely go to this I love right by there!
