Following the great success of rebooting Batman in the Dark Knight Trilogy, DC and Warner forges a new Man of Steel bringing the last son of Krypton back to the silver screen. This new origin of Superman is helmed by visionary director Zack Snyder with producer Chris Nolan of Dark Knight infamy together and veteran superhero film writer David S. Goyer. Henry Cavill dons a new blue suit and red cape (but without red underwear on the outside) as Kal-El / Clark Kent with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, supported by Hollywood heavy weights such as Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, etc. With powers akin to a god, only a global threat to humanity from fellow Kryptonians led by General Zod provide a comparable adversary to Superman, with their battles resulting in cataclysmic destruction to landscape. Man of Steel is now showing at cinemas nationwide in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.

Find out more at Midvalley website and head over quickly to Centre Court as this Man of Steel exhibit ends on 16 June 2013. If you've already missed out, the Outpost Movie Recon Team (MRT) has identified the following Man of Steel promos to appease your appetite:
For those who haven't gotten tickets yet to Man of Steel, Maybankard Visa Debit card users spending over RM200 at participating shopping mall in Penang, Kuantan, Kota Kinabalu and Melaka can redeem 2 passes for movie screening at GSC cinemas. Goto Maybank2u.com for more details.
Or if you can wait till 20 June to watch Man of Steel, purchase your tickets online with TGV cinemas and stand a chance to official movie merchandise.
While at the cinemas, you can take home your experience of the Man of Steel with these exclusive merchandise. Superman will be bursting out of your drink from the exclusive cup toppers sold at Cathay Cineplexes, while GSC Cinemas offers a cute red caped drinks tumbler.
Whilst there are assortments of Man of Steel merchandise available like kids tshirts, apparel and stationeries, the MRT prefer to highlight more thematic memorabilia for movie fans such as the Movie Masters series action figures below from Mattel. Find them at the nearest Toys R Us or department store.
And brick builders would also be delighted with official Man of Steel LEGO sets recreating scenes from movie, and subsequent destruction once Kryptonian fists clash (just drop your LEGO on the floor and watch them fall apart like Metropolis in the movie!). These sets seem bit hard to find and might have better pickings at various Toys R Us or LEGO themed hobby shops.
For those who are looking for Man of Steel apparel, you can use your ticket stubs from Cathay Cineplex to receive 20% off from DC Comics Super Heroes.
Needing a close shave? Purchase your shavers from Schick and you may win some Man of Steel merchandise; enter online with proof of purchase.
When shopping at Parkson, receive a limited edition Man of Steel mug with purchase of over RM100 Superman / Man of Steel products.
Conclude your shopping day or movie date at KFC and you can even get a Man of Steel umbrella with order of Movie Combo Meals. Kids ordering Chicky Meals get a Man of Steel toy or stationery instead.
Hope the Outpost MRT has provided some useful fan engagements above for the Man of Steel. Until the next recon report... up, up and away!
