Here’s one for the fanboys! The superhero hype doesn’t seem to end even after Cap went on screens. Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have provided the first look at the new Man of Steel, revealing star Henry Cavill as Superman in the film from director Zack Snyder. (See picture below)
Looking at Supes’ new costume, it definitely clear that the producers opted to go for a sleeker and toned down look as evident in the dark blue suit and the dark rich-red cape—both of which remind us of a certain friendly neighbourhood superhero that’s getting his reboot as well.
Also gone is the mini-me ‘S’ insignia on his chest which fan-boys went all up in arms against during Superman Returns. Here, we see the return of a more prominent version of it—just perfect to show the baddies what they’re up against.
The film also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent, Julia Ormond and Russell Crowe as his Kryptonian parents, Michael Shannon as General Zod and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, editor of the Daily Planet.
The Man of Steel flies into theatres June 14, 2013.
