When ‘Seasons’ by Chris Cornell plays over a scene in the beginning of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, you know that we’re in the era of a new Superman.

Russell Crowe on Getting in Shape for ‘Man of Steel’: “I didn’t realize that I would be wearing spandex. I didn’t realize that I’d have to fit into it as well”

Though Russell Crowe is no stranger to beefing up for a role, it had been some time since he had to do so before he agreed to portray Superman’s Kryptonian father Jor-El in Man of Steel. Crowe is following in the footsteps of Marlon Brando, who played Jor-El in 1978’s Superman (and again nearly thirty years later in Superman Returns, which featured unused footage from the original).

The three-time Oscar nominated Amy Adams is so beautiful that if she wanted to she could have made an entire career out of starring as the ditzy, pretty face lead in cheesy romantic comedies.
