'Man of Steel' flies to 2013

2012: The Year of the Superhero Movie just lost one of its biggest stars. Long assumed to be targeted for late 2012, Warner Bros. announced today that its new Superman film, Man of Steel will instead bow on June 14, 2013. The shift benefits ginormous December tentpoles, such as The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Lone Ranger, but sets Man of Steel up in a more appropriate summer-movie slot. The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-man, and The Dark Knight Rises will battle for summer 2012 supremacy, while Superman will now likely compete with Iron Man and Thor sequels in 2013.
