Target Age: Older Tweens and Teens
Buzz Factor: Any reboot of this pillar of the American comic book canon is going to get the fanboys excited. With Zack Snyder ("300") directing and Christopher Nolan (the "Dark Knight" trilogy) producing, hopes are high that this latest version of the Superman origin story will relaunch a durable franchise. British import Henry Cavill anchors this version of the Man of Steel story, mentored by Krypton father Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and earth father Jonathan (Kevin Costner). It promises to be darker and moodier than previous incarnations. —Common Sense Media
