My Man of Steel

I have always liked and admired Superman since the very first time. I've watched the movie not only once, twice or thrice... I have lost count, actually. I have also watched all the succeeding episodes--- be it Christopher Reeve still in Superman II and Superman III, Dean Cain (with Teri Hatcher) in the Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman TV series of the 90s, or Brandon Routh in the Superman Returns. Billy, my husband, would always call me every time any of these Superman movies appear on TV. He knows how an avid fan of Superman I have become! :)

And now, here comes Henry Cavill as the new super hero in the Man of Steel.

Well, I believe it's about time we watch another Superman movie after seven years! I missed the old Superman theme song in the movie, I admit, but I was able to appreciate the Christian undertones in various scenes, to the ire of some critics. While watching the movie, my husband would whisper to me every now and then his observation that Kal-El was presented as a type of Christ when Jor-El, his father, sent him to earth as savior to earth's humans. 

Henry Cavill... after him, I wonder who would portray as the next Superman? Don't you think that's something to look forward to in the next few years? 

I'd like to end this post by saying that, for this (my) lifetime, let him be my man of steel! Oh, I'm sorry, I don't mean Superman this time, but this man...

Oh, wait... 
May I add these two which I find amusing?!

How's that--- Marilyn Monroe and Lois Lane fighting over Superman at the Universal Studios in Singapore. 

Now look, attempting to bring home water supply from Merlion, eh? 

Happy Father's Day to you!
Mwahhh!!! Cheers!
