Watch: Young Clark Kent Confused About Puberty in 'Teen of Steel'
It's almost time for audiences to witness Man of Steel on the big screen, the return of Superman that hopefully will finally give fans the cinematic version of The Big Blue Boy Scout they have always dreamed of since he first appeared in comic books. Early buzz has been pretty damn good for the film, and if that last trailer is any indicator, it will be an action-packed superhero romp to keep summer going strong. But it's still only Monday, so let's take it easy with a funny little parody video from the comedy masterminds at the Upright Citizens Brigade improv theaters in Los Angeles as they look at a young Clark Kent trying to understand his powers. Kids grow hair in weird places, but outrunning a speeding train is normal too, right?
Here' the UCB Comedy sketch video Teen of Steel, straight from the UCB YouTube page:
A child sent to Earth from a dying planet is adopted by a couple in rural Kansas. Posing as a journalist, Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) uses his extraordinary powers to protect his new home from an insidious evil.
Man of Steel, the new DC Comics Superman reboot, is being directed by Zack Snyder, of Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen & Sucker Punch previously. Christopher Nolan is producing, and co-wrote the story with David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, The Unborn, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance), who wrote the script. Warner Bros will open Man of Steel in theaters everywhere on June 14th this month. Will you be there?
