Man of Steel Countdown – Superman and me
An outstanding, personal piece that really makes me even more pumped for the upcoming Man of Steel, as well as wanting to re-screen this ’78 superhero classic once again. A recommended read.
In just twenty four days (well 21 days for me :D), THE most anticipated movie of the year will arrive in theaters. There have been few movie events in the past decade, but for me, THIS would count as the one of the biggest one to date.

I really hope ‘Man of Steel’ pays off. A number of fans are pulling for it, that’s for sure. Thanks, mummbles :-).
I love this post Ruth did. Very classy of you to reblog this Michael. Thanks!
Very kind of you to say, T. Many thanks.
