"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Film, Comic Books
It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything significant from director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, but ComingSoon.net changes that with the first photos of Jor-El and Faora’s costumes from Licensing Expo 2012 in Las Vegas. There are also new shots of Superman’s updated suit.
Jor-El is, of course, Superman’s Kryptonian father (played in the franchise reboot by Russell Crowe), while Faora is General Zod’s Kryptonian henchwoman (played by Antje Traue). The photos are taken through glass, so they’re not terrific. Still, they’re probably the most we’re going to get until Comic-Con International, where we’ll probably see honest-to-goodness footage from the film. Probably.
Written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer and Christopher Nolan, Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, 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.
