Re: How would you make Superman Relevant?
Man Of Steel appears to be mostly a story about self discovery and that's something everyone can relate to. We all have it in us to do great things but first we need the courage to overcome ourselves.
In my opinion no other hero symbolizes that journey more than Superman and it appears from the trailer that they're going to nail that aspect of the character. Granted I don't know the context of it yet, but I love that brief moment of him looking to the sky right before take off. It's as if he's had a spiritual awakening of sorts and understands his purpose, and it is after that awakening in which he take towards the sky. It's the perfect metaphor.
Superman is and always will be the greatest superhero. And if Man Of Steel does it's job, everyone in the audience should leave the theater thinking the same thing.
