New Man of Steel Poster Revealed

Well this is an interesting poster for Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel. We obviously see Henry Cavill’s Superman surrounded by military personnel and in handcuffs. Of course the question that is raised by this poster is: Why has he been detained? Perhaps it’s out of good faith that Superman has turned himself in for something he’s responsible for? The trailer for the film is set to be released next week with prints of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, so I’m sure we’ll get some answers to exactly what kind of Superman film Zach Snyder and company have in store for us. We really don’t know much about the movie at this point, except for that this is a more serious approach to the character. What are your thoughts/speculations on the poster and the reboot?

Man of Steel also stars Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Michael Shannon. The movie opens on June 14, 2013 in IMAX, 3D, and 2D.

Man of Steel synopsis:

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

    I do agree that this is an interesting poster, definitely a good teaser. My first impression was also that Superman is turning himself in, but I guess we will have to wait until the ‘Hobbit’ to see if the trailer can answer any of our questions.

      Yeah I’m actually really looking forward to the movie. I’m not much of a Superman fan, but I do appreciate the character’s impact on comics. But man, this material is just screaming to be made into a great film and we haven’t had one since the Reeve’s days.

  2. Those cuffs probably aren’t enough to hold Superman. This seems like a weird character twist and turn. Just a thought.
