Neil Cole has had a super week, which started with attending the red carpet world premiere on Monday in New York for “Man of Steel,” which opens nationwide on Friday.
The Conway resident, who started the website www.supermansupersite.com in 1998, said this movie about the superhero who came from Krypton to Metropolis through Smallville marks the first release in the series since “Superman Returns” in 2006. That sequel came out 19 years after the late Christopher Reeve’s final bow in the role in “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace,” in 1987.
Cole, the office manager for a family accounting firm owned by his wife of 14 years, Jennifer Cole, said he’s been ready for heavier traffic on his website as “Man of Steel” hits the silver screen globally.
Henry Cavill will the Superman for the current generation. Sadly, Brandon Routh, from “Superman Returns,” has become the George Lazenby – who did one James Bond movie [“On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”] – of the “Superman” movie series.
