Happy 75th birthday, Man of Steel!

Los Angeles Times: Happy birthday, Superman! A look back at 75 powerful years
It’s an auspicious occasion for the Man of Steel. Exactly 75 years ago today, Superman made his debut in “Action Comics” No. 1.

Superman is celebrating his 75th birthday with a new comic book by DC Comics all-stars Jim Lee and Scott Snyder and an ambitious new film directed by Zack Snyder and co-written and -produced by Christopher Nolan, of “Dark Knight” trilogy fame.
Here is the latest trailer for "Man of Steel."

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes "Man of Steel," starring Henry Cavill ("Immortals," TV's "The Tudors") in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, under the direction of Zack Snyder ("300," "Watchmen").
I'm glad Amy Adams has her hair dyed brown.  Otherwise, I'd be asking, "Why are they calling Lana Lang Lois Lane?"  Never mind.  That's just the lighting.  It turns out that she's going to be a redhead after all.

On the other hand, it may be perversely appropriate that a natural redhead play Lois Lane, since the most recent portrayal of Lana Lang was Kristen Kreug, a brunette.

In any event, happy birthday, Man of Steel, and may you eventually find out that Lois Lane is not made of Kleenex!
