Superman Man of Steel wallpaper 5
General Sam Lane, Lois Lane's father, is a key figure in director Zack Snyder's Superman reboot. He is, as Zack has described in numerous interviews about the film, a "real world" Superman. I was told that when Superman appears on stage people don't know what to think. He's an alien from another planet. What are his real intentions? He's not human and that scares people. He's a guy who can fly, see through walls, he's insensitive to bullets and he can lift a tank. The military sees him as a potential threat to national security. They find kryptonite, pieces of their planet, and discover that its radioactive elements can be exploited almost as an unlimited source of power, both literally and figuratively. It is a new kind of energy that is secretly developed by the government. The military, under the direction of General Sam Lane, uses kryptonite as fuel for an experimental cyber soldier called Metallo. He will eventually be used as a weapon against Superman.
Facing the superhero are the other two survivors of Planet Krypton, the evil General Zod, represented by Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), and Faora, Zod's diabolical partner, played by Antje Traue. Also coming from Krypton, where Superman is a native, are Lara Lor-Van, Superman's mother, played by Ayelet Zurer (Angels and Demons), and Superman's father, Jor-El, played by Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
