June 14, today lies the 6th anniversary of the Man of Steel in theatres. The very chapter to be noted in the history of the DC Extended Universe franchise would be Zack’s Synder’s Super Man reboot, a franchise which never ended up fulfilling the potential it started with but has at the end landed in the middle of nowhere.
Despite the DC extended, Universe could not evolve in the best of its form, the fact that the Man of Steel created a huge impact on the history of DC Universe making its creation a prominent and notable one. It does hold a special place in the hearts of the viewers making it an exceptional movie creating a milestone. There have been a lot of debate and controversies, the thing is facing a lot of ups and downs. But at the end of the day, Man of Steel is indeed a great superhero movie probably the best Superman movie till date.

It was never that the fans have seen Clark Kent’s childhood from the viewpoint of being “closeted” or repressive in a manner that a person’s journey of finding himself and his sense of self-accomplishment and finding his place in the modern world.
