New Man of Steel Image Arrives

USA Today has debuted a new, if not exactly exciting, image of Henry Cavill in director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.

Judging from the helicopters and tanks in the background, the still is from the scene we saw in the recent trailer where Superman and Lois Lane (played by Amy Adams) grip hands while confronted by the U.S. military. Presumably, that’s shortly before the Last Son of Krypton is marched away in handcuffs.

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question ‘Why am I here?’ Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.

Opening June 14, 2013, Man of Steel also stars Michael Shannon as General Zod, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Diane Lane as Martha 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.

    I’m looking forward to the movie, but I have a feeling that the costume is going to keep irritating me.  It ALMOST looks like Superman to the point of being distracting.  Does that make sense?

  • Michael J. Murphy

    i kind of like it. it looks like some sort of Kevlar mesh. always bothered me that superman was flying through fire and bullets bounced off him and stuff while his costume stayed bright and shiny. im not saying he should be wearing armor, but it looks the slightest bit… practical? is that even necessary? i dont know, i dig it though

    Yes it does, it’s like the uncanny valley effect for superhero costumes, you know there’s something different but you don’t know if it’s good or bad yet.

    I like the costume… but the “Big Red S” is way too dark… very hard to see against the dark blue.

  • WindyCityGamer

    Yeah that always struck me as funny too: does cotton from Krypton get superpowered by a yellow sun as well?

  • WindyCityGamer

    At least Superman doesn’t sparkle in sunlight.

    The suit is skin tight and I believe is able to withstand major damage due to Clark’s invulnerability and being so close to him. That is why the cape always gets ripped apart in fights.
