The Zach Snyder Man of Steel overcomes some of the deficiencies which marred the 2006 Superman Returns. In Steel, Henry Cavill's Superman is still a serious man with great powers, but at least he seems to be having fun with those powers from time to time during the twist and turns of the plot, something which Bryan Singer's Superman (in his Superman Returns) didn't have, with Brandon Routh reduced to presenting a character who treated his superheroic responsibilities as a job, and not a particularly happy job either.
