What Kind of Superman will Henry Cavill be in 'Man of Steel'

"This is a Superman for a modern age. It's not betraying anything that Superman is, but it is grounding everything in reality. It's the story of this incredible being who can do incredible things, but whom we can associate with. Because he's gone through troubling stuff and had to make tough choices."
Says actor Henry Cavill on the kind of Superman he will be portraying in the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed film, as well his research into playing the Man of Steel:
"I managed to piece together this character, maintaining that baseline and having all the differences and nuances that our script adds, [But] this is our own thing. Stand-alone. It's about Superman, but we're not copying from any one comic in particular. And that's a good thing, because it's an original story." (Total Film via io9.com )
I have a huge aversion to his claim that this is an "original story", but then again, I'll recognize (or not) when I see it. The thing is, in every on-screen-Superman sense thus far, there have been a slight … "stoic-ness" (aka a kind word for "emotionally vacant") when it comes to the Man in the Red Cape, whereas as "Clark Kent", the actor/s get to showcase more? And yes, I am sure being "stoic" and all, is also "acting", but being able to "fly" does not mean Clark can emote less LOL

All I see in the MoS trailers thus far, is a Superman in distress and dismay tho lol
