BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
We’ve already seen official and unofficial images of Henry Cavill as Superman, and even some snapshots of Michael Shannon as General Zod, but now we get our first look at Russell Crowe as Jor-El on the Vancouver set of Man of Steel.
The photos, which come courtesy of the Daily Mail, show the 47-year-old actor in a flowing robe and cape, with shoulder pads and the familiar “S” emblem on his breastplate. But beneath that outer garment we see glimpses of a tight-fighting bodysuit similar to those worn by Cavill and Shannon, right down to the basketball-like pattern.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Man of Steel also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Ayelet Zurer as Lara Lor-Van, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Antje Traue as Faora, Harry Lennix as General Swanwick and Christopher Meloni as Col. Hardy. The film opens June 14, 2013.
