'Man of Steel' Blu-ray: The Superman story that needed to be told -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

“He’s the king of all superheroes. He exists in a weird way outside of comic-book culture.” — Zack Snyder

If Man of Steel wasn’t the king of all superhero movies, it was still an ambitious and exciting starting point for a new take on our most iconic caped character. Henry Cavill’s son of Krypton is an alien — always has been — and as writer David Goyer explains in an exclusive bonus video from the new Blu-ray, the Superman story that demanded to be told was one of first-contact. “You’re the answer,” Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) tells his adopted son in the film. “You’re the answer to, ‘Are we alone in the universe?'”

In a lot of ways, and most certainly for the future of DC Comics’ grand plan, Superman is a giant gateway. His very existence opens the doors to a bigger, almost infinite, universe that an established — but Earth-bound — box-office brawler like Batman can’t really deliver, and Man of Steel set the table. Perhaps Superman is that White Knight that Bruce Wayne once envisioned who would make Batman’s burden unnecessary — but we know it won’t be a smooth or cordial handover in the upcoming sequel, Batman Vs. Superman.

In the exclusive video below from the Man of Steel Blu-ray, which arrives Nov. 11, the cast and crew discuss the never-ending obsession with the character of Superman. Love, like, or simply shrug at this past summer’s reboot, it’s difficult not to be excited about the next chapter.

Christian Bale: About that $50 million offer to play Batman...

Extra! Extra!! Christian Bale offered $50 million to play Batman again!

If you’ve scanned the superhero sites, you’ve inevitably read reports that Bale is being lured back to the Batcave with a $50 meeellion offer to square off against Henry Cavill’s Superman in Warner Bros.’ Man of Steel sequel. Fans of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and Bale’s dark portrayal of the Caped Crusader immediately rejoiced, convincing themselves that Bale’s previous denials and his desire to pass the torch to another Batman could quickly be erased by cold hard cash. Perhaps that will eventually be the case. But not today.

The recent online buzz erupted after the British Sun newspaper reported that “Bale is facing extraordinary pressure” to return to the character for a huge payday. The Sun‘s sources, however, aren’t exactly Warner Bros. insiders or members of Bale’s inner circle. Instead, the tabloid was blindly relying on a new ebook titled Beyond Batman: The Unauthorized True Story of Christian Bale and His Dark Knight Dilemma. It’s a 27-page mini-book from an author named Vincent Russel, who’s also written an unauthorized biography of WWE superstar CM Punk.

Henry Cavill talks 'Justice League': 'It won't be right away'

Man of Steel has grossed close to $400 million worldwide. That’s good news for Warner Bros. The reboot wasn’t just designed to relaunch the Superman franchise; it was explicitly intended to establish a whole expanded DC universe, with the potential to craft a multi-spinoff franchise series leading up to a Justice League movie. It’s a simply Marvel-ous plan — get it? GET IT? Despite the film’s success, Warner has been mum about any plans for future movies, outside of fervent rumors that they’re fastracking Man of Steel 2Steel Harder for a 2014 release. READ FULL STORY

Fresh off the news that Tom Cruise exited the long-gestating production of Man From U.N.C.L.E., it looks like Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) may take on the now-vacated starring role.

Brolin has wrapped a number of projects recently including Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Spike Lee’s Oldboy, and Jason Reitman’s Labor Day.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… another new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, which combines this staticky message from General Zod with the darker tone, battle scenes, and shots of Henry Cavill’s Bearded Super-Fisherman we’ve seen in other spots.

Man of Steel won’t be hurting for an audience when the latest cinematic incarnation of Superman swoops into theaters next summer.

The supporting players ooze quality and clout: Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne. That’s an all-star team-up of acting Avengers right there. Behind the camera, a marketable, geek-cool, movie-smart brain trust: producer Christopher Nolan, screenwriter David Goyer, director Zack Snyder.
