Man of Steel

Rating: 1/3

The resurrection of Superman doesn’t fare well, either. While Lois Lane is a great character, she nor any of the other female characters have substantive conversations with each other (excepting one conversation which is about Clark), despite opportunities to do so. I guess that’s cause it’s the MAN of steel, but that’s a rather flimsy excuse.
