The Talent: Director Zack Snyder, stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Michael Shannon.
The Pitch: Superman rebooted, taking us back to his roots as an Earthbound Kryptonian baby and his battle with rogue General Zod (Shannon).
The Hook: Produced by Christopher Nolan, this is D.C.'s attempt to muscle in on Marvel with a Batman Begins-style 'dark' reimagining. But with the divisive Snyder at the helm, can it emulate the Caped Crusader's success?
Defining Feature: After missing out on the role of Superman in 2006 (and James Bond, and Edward Cullen, and just about every other major franchise lead), this is Henry Cavill's long-overdue moment to shine.
