Plot summary

What is Superman: Man of Tomorrow movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Superman: Man of Tomorrow" movie plot summary.

Following his homeworld Krypton's destruction, Kal-El (Darren Criss) is sent by his parents to Earth, where he is adopted by Jonathan and Martha Kent (Bellamy Young), who named him "Clark", and raised in Smallville, Kansas. Growing up, Clark became isolated from humanity due to his superhuman abilities which he had developed overtime due to Earth's yellow sun. In the present-day, Clark works as an intern for the Daily Planet in Metropolis in which he also serves coffee to the workers. One day, he meets S.T.A.R. Labs janitor Rudy Jones, who informs Clark about extraterrestrial experiments going on inside the lab, while attending the launch of a LexCorp orbital rocket telescope hosted by Lex Luthor (Zachary Quinto). After reporter Lois Lane (Alexandra Daddario) exposes Luthor of gross negligence leading to his arrest, the rocket misdirects to Metropolis. As the Flying Man, Clark throws it back into space. Unbeknownst to Clark, he is being watched by a mysterious figure dressed in a trench coat.
When S.T.A.R. Labs detect a UFO coming towards Earth, Clark heads to investigate, only to find himself confronting an alien bounty hunter named Lobo (Ryan Hurst). Lobo reveals that Clark is the last of his kind and has a bounty on him, which Lobo is after, leading into a fight between the two across Metropolis. Clark takes the fight elsewhere to S.T.A.R. Labs causing an explosion with Rudy caught in the crossfire and gets covered in purple liquid. Lobo discovers Clark's weakness is Kryptonite that was forged in his ring and uses it to beat him up with it. The figure arrives, exposing himself as a Martian, and intervenes the battle. As the Martian distracts Lobo, Clark uses the sun to heal himself, returning to finally defeat Lobo. Afterwards, Clark faces a dilemma of whether he should reveal himself to the world or keep his identity a secret despite the consequences. That night, a hospitalized Rudy awakens and discovers he has the ability to drain energy from life and turn people into husks. The Martian visits Clark in his home in Smallville and properly introduces himself as J'onn J'onzz (Ike Amadi). J'onn reveals to Clark his true origins and that they must keep themselves a secret to humanity due their history of Xenophobia.
