Man of Steel Takes Flight With New Images, Details

man of steel-ew coverUp until now, everyone involved with Man of Steel — from director Zack Snyder to the stars to the Warner Bros. marketing machine — has kept a pretty tight lid on the details of the franchise reboot. Questions about plot and tone are met with vague responses, the few movie stills haven’t been particularly illuminating, and the first television spot included a whole second of new footage.

That lid begins to loosen, however, with the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features Superman himself Henry Cavill on the cover. A preview of the article reveals some intriguing details, most notably that a mainstay of DC Comics mythology doesn’t make an appearance. “I’ll be honest with you,” Snyder says, “there’s no Kryptonite in the movie.”

Also: Kal-El’s “specialness” apparently isn’t limited to Earth and the effects of its yellow sun. EW reports, “This film reveals that even on Krypton, young Kal-El was a special child, whose birth was cause for alarm on his home planet.”

Luckily, /Film also snagged seven photos from the magazine’s iPad edition, providing us with an advance look at new images of Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Russell Crow as Jor-El, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent, Antje Traue as Faora, and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White.

Man of Steel opens June 14.

    Man, I do NOT like the colours on that costume. It’s just too dark. Especially since Superman is supposed to be a beacon of hope in the DCU.

    Well, navy blue is common in school uniforms.

    Hey Clark I know this great tanning place.Looking a little pale there Supes.Not getting enough sun? But in all seriousness I’m getting a really good feeling about the movie.

    It’s darker than the traditional look. All of the colours are, and it just looks wrong on him. Specifically the symbol.

    The color is indeed a bit too dark, and I guess I will get used to the scaly texture (which is probably better than the alternative overall). But hey, does this Jim Lee redesign of Supes’ costume disappoint me. It was a definite turn for the worse. The traditional design looked goofy with the cape and red briefs, but removing the briefs is no improvement at all.
