There is a lot more going on this summer than just Superman, but there is a lot of Superman. Here is what’s up this week.
Man of Steel, opening Friday, features Cleveland’s own Superman. The movie, if you’re really still unaware, features Clark Kent being transported to Earth from the dying planet of Krypton, getting adopted by the Kents and struggling to find his place in the world having unique super powers but becoming Superman when the world is attacked. The film stars Henry Cavill as the man himself, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Russell Crowe as Jor-El. Jonathon and Martha Kent are played by Kevin Costner and Diane Lane.
I’m sure by now you have bought your ticket to see Kevin Costner and his band play at Brothers Lounge next Friday since it’s sold out. Rumor has it he will be in full Water World gear. That’s a lie, but it’s what should happen (We weren’t expecting this to actually exist).
