Snyder's reboot of the Superman franchise will also star Amy Adams as Clark Kent's love interest Lois Lane, while Michael Shannon will play the war criminal Zod.

Man of Steel is centred on Clark Kent's rise from being an alien refugee raised in Smallville by human parents to the protector of the earth following a deadly attack.

Producer Christopher Nolan recently admitted that rebooting the Superman franchise was much more challenging than his own Batman trilogy because of the comics' tone.
Nolan said of filmmaker Snyder helming Man of Steel: "[Zack is] the perfect man to take this on... In my honest appraisal, taking on Superman and creating that world is far more difficult than creating the world of the Dark Knight.

"[Snyder] has a lot of finishing to do on the movie - it has a very long post-production schedule because, unlike Batman, Superman flies."

Man of Steel will be released in cinemas on June 14, 2013.
