New MAN OF STEEL Spoilers: What Makes Superman Different From Other Kryptonians

Hit the jump to read excerpts from Entertainment Weekly's Summer Preview issue on Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. The information is spoilerific and explains what makes Kal-El so special as compared to other Kryptonians.

Screenwriter, David S. Goyer, reveals to Entertainment Weekly that the children of Krypton (Superman's home planet) are engineered. "People were bred to be warriors or scientists or what-have-you, and there's a whole element in the movie about nature versus nurture," Goyer says. EW adds, "Kal-El is unique because he's a natural conception, free from genetic manipulation to choose his own course in life - which also makes his existence highly illegal."

Another major revelation from the article is that Superman's main bugaboo, kryponite, will not be making an appearance in Man of Steel. "I'll be honest with you, there's no kryptonite in the movie," says director Zack Snyder.

Henry Cavill explains that this time Superman deals with a different type of kryptonite, instead of the green radioactive element fans have grown accustomed to. "Although he is not susceptible to the frailties of mankind, he is definitely susceptible to the emotional frailties." Or as Snyder puts it: "It's all emotional kryptonite."

Terrance Stamp portrayed the character as an icy warlord in Superman II, but Shannon sees him as more of a die-hard supremacist. "He actually has some affection for anybody who's a Kryptonian, including Superman," Shannon says. "He doesn't really have any malignant feelings toward him; he just wants him to be patriotic."

"All their armor goes on top of the suits," Deborah Snyder explains. But because Superman's a refugee, his iconic outfit in our world doesn't have the snap-on battle gear, which would make him a defenseless man on his own Kryptonian turf.

Traue's Faora isn't choking Lois Lane (Amy Adams), but activating a device to help the mere mortal breathe aboard a Kryptonian spacecraft while General Zod negotiates with Superman. (Faora's translucent helmet, meanwhile, helps protect her from sensory overload under our power-giving sun.) "I'm not threatening her, " explains. "I'm a good girl in this shot." Faora "is a psychopath," says Traue. "She is an engineered being, and driven by the need and pleasure of killing."
....................

Lois Lane (Amy Adams) - chasing down reports of a wandering stranger who is capable of superhuman feats of strength. "She's very transient. She's ready to pick up and go at a moment's notice," Adams says, noting that the trait is shared by Lois and Clark. "That definitely could be part of what she sees in Superman-not really laying down roots, not developing trust."





Man Of Steel was directed by Zack Snyder, from a script written by Chris Nolan and David Goyer. The cast includes: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Ayelet Zurer, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Chris Meloni, Harry Lennix, Laurence Fishburne, Julian Richings and Richard Schiff. Man Of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013!
