Man of Steel will be missing Superman's greatest weakness

Everyone seems to be really excited over the cover photo for Entertainment Weekly, but haven't we seen it before? Indeed we have. I posted the photo in its full glory on here a couple of months ago, but had to removed it because the studio willed it to be so. It was one bad ass cover photo on Facebook. I've included the cover below for you to glance at. If you want to read more about the film and many others coming our way in the near future, the issue will be out on June 14th.

Entertainment Weekly previewed some of the MAN OF STEEL deets from the issue, one of which kind of surprised me. Apparently Superman's number one crippling weakness will not be in the film:

“I’ll be honest with you, there’s no Kryptonite in the movie."

But why? It's mention that the audience should be able to relate more with the character, and not to mention that it has been used in every Supes film.

Snyder on Lois Lane (Amy Adams):

I think she’s very transient. She’s ready to pick up and go at a moment’s notice. I think that definitely could be part of what she sees in Superman — not really laying down roots, not developing trust.”

So less action and more relatability? Producer Charles Roven (THE DARK KNIGHT) thinks it's about more than the wow factor:

You want to give the audience great spectacle. You want them to go to the movie, be eating their popcorn and be like, ‘Wow!’” But it’s just not good enough to give them the ‘Wow.’ You want them to be emotionally engaged. Because if you just have the ‘wow,’ ultimately you get bludgeoned by that and you stop caring.
