FIRST IMAGE OF HENRY CAVILL AS SUPERMAN
Well, I had my doubts, but this Superman reboot looks like it’s going to be damn good. British actor Henry Cavill (Stardust, The Tudors) will play Superman/Clark Kent in Superman: Man Of Steel, which will be directed by Zach Synder (Watchmen), produced by Christopher Nolan & Emma Thomas (The Dark Knight, Inception) and written by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight). A production team like that is a superhero film dream-team, and it looks as if Mr Nolan has the Midas touch when it comes to men in capes.
Superman: Man Of Steel is set for release on June 14th 2013
The eternal question…
(For sticklers and fanboys, this can be taken as the entire franchise, or just the films, or just the comics, or any combination of things involving the two caped crusaders)
LEAKED /// ON-SET PHOTOS OF MAN OF STEEL
Well everyone’s seen the promo image, so here’s an on-set pic of Henry Cavill in Superman: Man Of Steel. Our first proper look at that famous suit reveals the red undies have been done away with (good move), whilst the Super-logo on the chest looks a little odd. Those wondering where the cape has disappeared to, the likelihood is it’ll be created digitally in post-production.
Teaser poster #2 of the day: Oooooh, this actually looks quite good. Henry Cavill looks suitably all-American/Kryptonian to fill the cape vacated by Brandon Routh, and whilst the supersuit seems to be made out of basketball, the team of Zack Synder, Chris Nolan and David S Goyer are sure to have crafted a fine start for DC’s Justic League project.
Morbid reminder of the day: This infographic (created by Designbysoap) sorta kills the image of the invincible superhero doesn’t it? Also shows that unless you have either a) superpowers, b) genetic mutation or c) shedloads of cash and training, then your tenure as a hero will be very very short.
