Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have release the first official image from Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Superman: Man of Steel” giving us our first look at Henry Cavill in full costume as Superman.
Despite the horrible angle and over dramatic pose, I’m liking the suit more than the “Superman: Return” version. But I am not a fan of the scales however, as it makes Superman look more like Aquaman. Overall this is a strange look and I hope it’ll dramatically change in the final version, unless this is the final version then Snyder has pretty much dropped the ball and he should be barred from ever making films again. The biggest crime has got to be Superman’s hair. Cavil has the look, I know this. I’ve seen him in person. I’m spoken to him. But in this he just looks like some greasy mob guy with shaved eyebrows. Come on WB. Do better!
“Superman: Man of Steel” is due out June 14th, 2013.
Here’s the official press release:
The film also stars three-time Oscar® nominee Amy Adams (The Fighter) as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got to Do with It) as her editor-in-chief, Perry White.
