Get your first official look at the new Superman from Man of Steel!

4 years agoby:

As filming on MAN OF STEEL gets ready to begin, Warner Bros. sent out an official look at Henry Cavill as Superman!

The photo was sent along with a release confirming the cast including Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner with Michael Shannon as General Zod and Antje Traue as Faora. I'm not sure if this was confirmed already but Christopher Meloni was listed as playing Colonel Hardy.

So what do you think of the pic? It's obviously staged and beefed up with some Photoshop and CGI but Cavill himself seems to have the look down (though he looks slightly sinister/Bizarro in this photo). I'll bet there will be some debate about the costume, which continues that honeycomb-design that seems to be ever-popular in superhero movies. (What I find strange is that the honeycomb pattern is visible even in the "S" on his chest.)

What do you think? Does this get you excited for MAN OF STEEL or make you nervous? Read the full press release after the photo...

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. 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. Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Oscar® nominee Diane Lane (“Unfaithful”) and Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves”).

Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon (“Revolutionary Road”), and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Julia Ormond, and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”).

Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.

“Man of Steel” is being produced by Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer, from a story by Goyer and Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster and published by DC Comics. Thomas Tull and Lloyd Phillips are serving as executive producers.

The Bader the Better

Deidrich Bader as Superman! Brilliant. I remember watching the "Drew Carey Show" and thinking he'd make an excellent Clark Kent.

Sorry double post.

I guess I'm in the minority when it comes to being one of the few that liked Superman Returns. One major thing I didn't like about Returns was the suit. This suit looks worse than the one in Returns. I hope the movie does well and it turns out to be a comeback for the franchise, however, the look of this suit is not making me feel any better about this film. Also, where is the curl??

Sorry but not right

Lawrence Fishburn as Perry White??? You know if they cast Vin Diesel as Luke Cage or Jason Statham as Blade we would never hear the end of it. And for the record I wouldnt like those castings either.

HE ISN'T BATMAN

so why do they need to make him dark and brooding...do the execs at warners read their own material before making a movie? Larry Fishburn as Perry White??!! The way things are going Warners should just stick to animated dc movies, cause they can never get the live-action right...do they have access to dc archives, cause they should re-read the material, don't remember him being moody...and can I see a live-action superman fighting somebody else besides Luthor or Zod, he has a lot better

I'm beginning to loathe when they release photos like this because all it does is turn everyone on the Internet into a judge from Project Runway.

Finally a dark and gritty Superman. Sure every comic book movie tries to follow this trend, but Superman needed this type atmosphere the most.

Superman?

This picture makes Superman look like he's a cast member off of the Jersey Shore. I still think that the studio is a complete idiot for not casting Tom Welling or at least second choice Matt Bomer from White Collar. Oh well, so far not so good.

Looks totally uninteresting... but a picture doesn't say much about a movie.

The good thing is that he looks like a man and not like a boy.
Why has every costume today these little cells on it? Spiderman has it, Superman has it, the Star Trek crew shirts have it...

So my point is, rubber is better than spandex?

I just noticed in the hi-res close-up version that he appears to be missing the red drawers, a'la the DC relaunch. He has the original boots though. Trick of the eye maybe?

It's only...

one picture people, granted the hexagonal pattern on the s is weird, but it looks fine. As long as Singer is no where near this one it should be fine. Not too keen on Amy Adams being LL, she's an awesome actress and her work on The Fighter was phenomenal, but something just doesn't seem right. I'll wait and see, it's about time Batman got some company on the good dc movies roster.

I saw it this morning and I still don't like this. There is a lot wrong here, but more than anything to me, it just doesn't set the right tone for me. It doesn't really look like Superman to me. It looks... off.

Oh, I dunno, seems like enough of us are noticing the suit. And, well, these things do matter.
Ask the people who made Green Lantern how much success they had. Granted the suits weren't the only reason for their movie bombing but it's part of the problem.

We are liking or disliking this topic based on the same picture. It's called having an opinion.
And what's with fanboys? The ones who blindly like something just because it's a movie based on a character they like is just as bad, if not worst.
And just a picture? Haha. I remember when the "fanboys" were defending the first pictures, then the first trailers for Green Lantern. And look how much a turd this movie turned out to be in the end.

Suit Looks Okay to Me

But what I like about the photo is more the mood. Subdued colors is kind of a trendy choice of "badassness" now, which is disappointing, but the fact that Superman looks like he is about ready to pummel somebody as opposed to contrite as he stairs into the distance like a freaking Abercrombie AD makes me excited.
Higher expectations can only be heaped upon TDKR and The Avengers I would say, and I will say this: it could have been a ton worse guys.
Oh, and one other thing, I keep seeing this

Oh, and one other thing, I keep seeing this viewpoint the Brandon Routh was amazing as Superman and should have returned. I would like to know what about this performance made the character any better. This is not me being sarcastic, but rather an honest question. I thought his performance was pretty wooden. I mean, yeah he was soft-spoken and farm-boyish but he had none of Reeves charisma and zero character development.

I like the hair but the textured suit can go. This guy looks serious! I'm sure "The Man Of Steel" will be galaxy's better than the new "Spiderman" reboot. What a piece of dung that movie looks to be. I'm now excited about "The Man of Steel"

Is it too late to ditch the honeycomb pattern?
Also his hair looks like Frank Langella's in the '79 Dracula movie.

Won't wreck the movie for me, though, only crappy action and a crappy story will.
The pic actually reminds me of the Viewmaster reel I had when I was a kid- he busts a safe door off or something- bitchin'

I'm digging the costume, though if I had to nitpick, the shiny aspect sits funny. However, Cavill is not selling me in this particular shot. Still totally on board.

image looks great

and I don't mind the costume at all.

But Henry Cavill is just not doing it for me. He looks too generic/bland, he just seems like nothing I ever imagined Kent/Supes to be. And no, I'm not just talking about CR, I'm talking about the character from all the comics and all that.
I would've MUCH preferred they just stuck with Brandon Routh.

I'll still watch it but if they would've just had Routh instead of Cavill this probably would've been my #1 most anticipated flick of 2012 (2013?)

Haters.

It's the same god damn song and dance EVERY time- "I don't like the costume", "I don't like the actor". Most of you haters probably have never picked up a fucking Superman comic in your life, but I bet you have the logo tattooed on you or have Supes floormats for your '95 Mustang. You're called a "poser". Don't open your mouth or type anything unless you KNOW, not "THINK". In my opinion, it looks great. Just waiting to hear "Billy Zane was cast as Lex Luthor" until I'm super excited.

Movie synopsis

Basketball man from the 1950's breaks into a bank vault to steal the cape of Spawn and wreak havoc.
Based on what I've seen, I have very little faith Synder can bring the right humanity and emotion to Superman that it needs.

Why does the suit have kevlar scales!? Bullets bounce off of this man, he doesn't need an outfit that is basically a dark blue bullet proof vest. My expectations for this movie are so low they're in the negatives; this is even coming from a Snyder fan.

First of all its just an early costume test, not a scene from the movie. The bank vault is part of the classic iconography of the character, like breaking chains or holding a car over his head, it just shows his power. Second I like the suit, its very modern while harkening back to the characters original look. The muted tones remind me of the color palette from the Fleischer cartoons, and while I'm not a fan of the texture either, Oh Well, shit happens so shut your mouth and grab an umbrella.

This will be the next in line on DC's failure list. Seems only Batman can do it right. Superman sucks, so basically, he will kick ass until the kryptonite comes out and he'll be a bitch, over come it, and kick ass again.

I could give two shits about the 'S' symbol complaints on his chest, whether the suit looks like a basketball or not, or even the hair. THAT is Superman in the picture, and he's being played by a more than capable actor.

Coolest Looking Yet

By far the coolest looking Supes yet. Digging the suit design.
This is giving off a Nolan-Batman vibe. Classic enough, but still with the proper updating.

Sooo.....Supes and Spidey both get their suits made by Spaulding?
This dude looks like one of those guys the mall would hire to dress up as a superhero for a sale. Maybe if they back it up with some footage I may change my mind, but since it's from Snyder it's not likely I will.

What I like about the pic is it portrays a Superman who can be harmed. He has vulnerability. We don't need the shiny, invincible, plastic Superman.
The feel is good, and Zack Snyder's visual interpretation will most likely be great.
That being said, I hope this is a bad shot of Cavill cuz Superman's supposed to be much more handsome.

One pic, so that's what I'm criticizing...

That hair is ridiculous. And I know the original Spider-man costume taught everyone that texture/shading on tights adds tone and form but this just looks like snake skin... and why have it on the the shield too? Rest looks cool, but if they can't fix that stupid hair they've already messed this up.

What kind of substance were you looking for in a costume test exactly? Cavill is a competant actor, Goyer and Nolan have made two Batman films with incredible depth already, and Snyder's visual flair is exactly what a Superman movie could benefit from.

Well why am I not surprised by WB/DC yet again. They really seems to not be able to get things right.

And well the movie is most likely going to be bad anyways as it seems to be yet again a rehash of the last Superman movies.

Eh.... I'll reserve judgement til the film BUT THE PHOTO

Cavill seems to be doing his best. The costume looks alright. But why is he breaking out of a bank vault?

I have to be honest. The second i looked at this photo I let out a huge groan. Just Snyder's typical after effects grey filters. I dare you to not make a movie that looks like it's being viewed through a digital coffee filter Snyder!

In fact with Nolan "godfathering" this I hoped he would beat the habit out of you!

I like this a lot actually.. and I like it because it tries to push itself away from the Superman that Christopher Reeve created. He was an incredible Supes and one that we will all cherish forever, but it's time to move on. Cavill might not have the "softer, welcoming" look that Reeve had and Routh imitated, but I WANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT. He looks like he's ready to beat the shit out of somebody, and we have yet to see Supes whooping ass and taking names on the big screen in that way.

How the fuck does he look like he's from the Jersey Shore? That's retarded. He looks absolutely bad ass which is something that has failed big screen Superman. I liked Reeve and Routh but it's nice to see a fresh, more modern take. I'm sure he's a friendly Supes but he also looks like he could knock your block off.

I don't like the cape or the actor. He just doesn't look likeable. He may be physically fit and have dark hair but he doesn't look very likeable. The cape looks too formal and it looks like a similar suit to Superman Returns which everyone hated. Just darker.

I'm looking forward to this less and less which each passing day.

Still Too Early

I don't mind the honeycomb on the suit. However i really hope the Cape doesn't have honeycomb affect on it. It's his blanket from krypton, and shouldn't resemble his newly fabricated suit. Im very excited for this movie in general, i still think its to early for people to be hatting, or loving it yet.

I still want to see how it looks in action, but I like this still. Much better than the first publicity photo from Superman Returns. Like a lot of other people, I'm not fond of the texture of the suit, but it's something that is the least of my worries going into this film.

How did Snyder land such a huge job?

His last three movies have been outright flops - and considering his last "superhero" movie was super-hyped and super-underperformed, you'd think the studio would be a bit wary of handing him the keys to a franchise that they're trying quite hard to successfully reboot. Obviously he has a distinct style, but Sucker Punch was god-awful, the Owls movie looked terrible and Watchmen was only somewhat compelling with most of its faults due to his odd choices (the soundtrack, for example). I dunno.

I dunno. Just think it's odd that he can go from a string of flops and critical turkeys to landing such a huuuge gig, Nolan's trust or not.

Oh, and this picture looks as I expected it to look: too dark, too serious, like they're trying to Dark Knight the Superman franchise. Superman is not an inherently dark or brooding character, and this attempt at darkening every comic book character (first Spider-Man, now this) to cash in on the "serious comic book movie" trend is a joke. They're already talking about doing it with Green Lantern 2. At some point these "dark" comic book movies are going to start flopping and they'll switch back to the light-hearted fare. Dark Knight didn't do well because it was dark. It did well because they had a great director at the helm, a great cast, a great script and content dark enough to match the tone. I doubt they'll be able to pull that off as successfully with Superman.

I don't like the washed out colors, the way his hair flares out at the sides of his head (makes him look like a gangster). Also, wtf is up with that cartoony-looking vault? If it's a real set, they sure went out of their way to make it match the CGI version that no doubt gets animated for the actual destruction scene.

I honestly don't know what to think. Singer tried to do a total homage to Donner and it didn't really work so maybe this'll be Supes Batman Begins reinvention. My only hope is that Christopher Nolan is the Executive Producer and that he'll keep a leash on Snyder.

Not liking it...

I can't stand the suit and the patterns that all these lame designers have decided to use. From Spider-Man to Star Trek, it isn't appealing to the eye. Not to mention the color palette. What the fuck?! Superman should be bright and fun, not saturated shit to please the Babymen who want their comics to be realistic. Plus, where is the spit curl??? Is this like the Dean Cain Superman where he didn't have it? Ugh... Superman is in the hands of the guy who gave us Sucker Punch. Holy shit.

uhhhhh

I wanna like Superman, I really do. But this is not a good picture at all. The hair is weird and the suit makes me feel like superman and spidey have the same tailor.

The pattern is too strong and his hair is just weird. Supes must have spit curl, period. Other than that, I'm loving the look here.

What's with the 'scaly' tights?

Captain America could do better with the scaly thingy. You know, if they got rid of the textured costume crap, let BRANDON ROUTH wear the costume, then we might just have something here.

Crap I'm watching Superman Returns and skip to the action sequences...

Hate to say this, but I'm not digging the hairdo or the suit with the 'sewn-on' 'S' emblem. Plus, this isn't really the first picture of Superman you should be releasing. He looks more menacing than heroic, and he doesn't look 'super' at all. Hate to complain, don't wanna judge, but I'm getting a lil' worried now.

Couple things. I agree he needs to look a bit more "savior-esque." Second, the cape looks awesome, but is it practical to be so long? I hope so, because it just looks great.

Oh. And of course, the hair's gotta go.

He looks more sinister than heroic, the costume looks like a wetsuit and what's with the Saturday Night Fever Travolta-hair???

yeah he looks a little more sinister than Superman is supposed to be. This is in action though, we'll see how he does standing up straight and looking noble.

This actually look promising; no red underpants on the outside, darker, grittier (what otherwise cheesy Superman needs), and a guy that looks the part, bulked up a bit evidently. A probably more intense version - this guy can actually act, in comparison to Routh that (honestly) cant act.

Not crazy about the honeycomb...

I like Henry as Supes a lot. Spot on casting in my opinion. His hair is however a little off. If anything it should be slicked back and shorter. But this might just take some getting used to. The costume is looking great with the exception of the honeycomb texture. Just because it worked for Spidey doesn't mean it works for Supes. Maybe just a less noticeable texture would be ok. But I really feel like a smoother look would really represent the true iconic look of Superman's suit.

I'd never think "Superman," but I'm not a huge Superman guy anyway and the costume looks ok I guess. as chambersbone said, the scaley look on the crest is too much.

He doesn't look like Superman. He looks like Zod pretending to be Superman. I don't really have any issues with the costume. The costume looks fine to me. I like the bigger S Shield. I can live with the fact he looks like a giant basketball. It just occurs to me that he looks a lot more like Superman in the trailer for Immortals than he does in an actual picture of him as Superman. That makes me not want to see the movie.

Looks good. I kinda like how the S-shield is bigger than the previous film. Would have rather seen him doing the classic Superman pose though, hands on his hips looking to the stars all heroic-like. Looking at his face, I thought that was Casper Van Dien from Starship Troopers for a second.

The suit itself isn't bad. It's the entire cast of this movie I don't buy. Cavil doesn't look like Superman too me. Amy Adams as Lois Lane is a joke, that be almost as bad if they cast Kevin Costner to play Jonathan Kent... Oh wait they did that as well. I had faith in Snyder till I saw the casting list. They should of Brought back Brandon Routh. He didn't get a fair shake. With the right script Brandon would make a excellent Superman

It's only a publicity shot but looks fine to me. The real test for Cavill will be portraying BOTH Clark Kent and Superman. Christopher Reeve was brilliant in making them two different characters so you could believe why one was never associated with the other by anyone besides Lois Lane. If Cavill can pull that off, that's half the battle. Then it's up to script and director to give us a good story in support of the action.

I love the colors, and Cavill looks like he jumped right out of the comic books.
The texture of the suit does look exactly like Spiderman's new costume, which makes me wonder if maybe this particular rubbery/basketball texture happens to look AMAZING on film. One can hope that's why they went with it. Of course, anything looks better than cellophane or spandex.
