‘The Man Of Steel’ To Take Place Partly In West Africa?

Saturday, April 16 by

Rumors about Zack Snyder‘s Superman reboot The Man of Steel are easy to come by. For example, here’s one I just made up: The Man of Steel will feature fashion model Clark Kent being trained and brainwashed by a shadowy criminal organization that uses male models as assassins to assassinate the Prime Minister of Malaysia. But it’s not as easy to make something up when it’s the plot premise listed on The Baseline Studio System, a movie industry database for media professionals. Here’s the synopsis they have listed for The Man of Steel:

“A young reporter named Clark Kent roams the world covering various news stories. When he is compelled to use his secret powers to intervene in a crisis in West Africa, he returns to Smallville to learn more about his origins and the hero he was born to be.”

Remember, this isn’t an official announcement, but Baseline apparently has a pretty good accuracy rating as far as movie news is concerned.  No General Zod listed in the premise, unless Snyder has turned Zod into an Idi Amin-like African warlord, which would pretty much be the best idea ever. But I’m guessing he probably just comes in later. (Bleeding Cool)
