When Clark disappears for five years, the world has not had anyone protecting them. Since he has been gone, there has been more crime in the city of Metropolis. It is especially bad when Lex Luthor decides to try to destory the city. Luthor had just gotten out of jail when he decided to use Superman's powers for his own gain. Lois Lane is the star reporter for the Daily Planet, and superman is in-love with her. She has moved on though because she has not seen Superman in a long time.

Kevin Costner might be going from "Tin Cup" to "Man of Steel". The Hollywood veteran is rumored to be in consideration for a "key role" in the upcoming "Superman: The Man of Steel", according to Deadline.
Which role Costner is being considered for remains a mystery for the time being. Currently, the only other actor cast in the film is Henry Cavill, playing Supes himself, so Costner could be cast as any of the older characters in the Superman universe.
