DC comic's most popular superhero may have a new face but his superpowers remain the same.

New Delhi: The original superhero is back on big screen! DC comic's most popular superhero may have a new face but his superpowers remain the same.

Actor Henry Cavill takes up the role of one of the post popular superheroes of all time in Zack Snyder's 'Man Of Steel'. The premise remains the same. Then film narrates the story of a reluctant Clark Kent who takes on General Zod to save Earth and mankind.

Written and produced by Christopher Nolan, the film is expected to have a dark undertones, which have become a staple of Nolan films.

The film boasts of a super cast. Russell Crowe, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane join in the cast to make this film grand.

In the times of superhero films, will Man of Steel match up to other films.

2:03 PM: Stay tuned for the tweet review of #ManOfSteel.

2:05 PM: Of all the superheroes, Superman can easily be called one of the most popular superhero of all times. #ManOfSteel

2:07 PM: But will actor Henry Cavill be able to justify Superman's role?

2:12 PM: Such a delight to watch Russell Crowe. #ManOfSteel begins.

2:30 PM: Any superhero film is incomplete without a powerful antagonist. Talented actor Michael Shannon plays General Zod in #ManOfSteel

2:39PM: 'People are afraid of what they don't understand' #ManOfSteel

2:53PM: The new Lois Lane is a Pulitzer prize winning reporter. Okay then. #ManOfSteel

3:07 PM: Superhero's foster father is also a superhuman. Well a mild one. And he is not from Krypton. #ManOfSteel

3:21 PM: 'S' in planet Krypton stands for Hope. #ManOfSteel

3:31 PM: #ManOfSteel is taking a leisurely time to establish its plot. Can be a bit daunting at times.

3:54 PM: So far very few thrilling moments in the film. #ManOfSteel

4:13 PM: General Zod is no Joker or Bane or even The Lizard. #ManOfSteel

4:24 PM: Henry Cavill as Superman gives a restraint performance. #ManOfSteel

4:26 PM: But the high points of #ManOfSteel are Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Michael Shanon as General Zod.

4:27 PM: #ManOfSteel has its moments but lacks that awe inspiring feel.

4:28 PM: Watch it if you are a fan of Superman. #ManOfSteel ends on a good note.

4:30 PM: Thanks for staying with us throughout the tweet review of #ManOfSteel. Have a super weekend at the movies.
