The handcuffed Superman image comes from the material that the movie studio showed to the audience at this past summer's San Diego Comic Con.- Warner Bros. via Facebook. Comment on this Scoop (3)

Richard Schiff has joined the cast of Man of Steel. He'll play a character named Dr. Hamilton, who may be based on a scientist character that appears in the DC Comics Superman books. That Dr. Hamilton has both assisted and hindered Superman, so it's not clear what side of the fence we can expect Schiff's version to be played.
Schiff starred in seven seasons of The West Wing. He's also appeared in Jurassic Park: The Lost World.- Variety. Comment on this Scoop (0)

More spy photos showing Henry Cavill in his Superman costume have appeared on the Man of Steel Facebook page. In the photos you see the new Superman costume in full light for the first time, and it confirms earlier reports that the traditional red speedo-like shorts -- his super-undies, if you will -- have been discarded from the costume design in favor of a nearly all-blue one-piece suit.
In another photo we're treated to the first front-on look at Faora, one of the Kryptonian villains. Hers is a black costume that bears some resemblance to the costumes Zod and his crew wore in Superman II, but with the addition of a black cape.- Superman: Man of Steel via Facebook.

Casting calls for extras from the Vancouver Island coastal communities of Nanaimo and Ucluelet have been issued by the production (and first reported online by the Superman Homepage.)
Here's what the call sheet is describing as the movie's plot:
"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."
This latest news story doesn't really offer much more detail about who the movie's villains are, or what crisis the world will face, but what's more interesting is wondering how the seaside Canadian towns factor into the story.
One other fact was revealed: Man of Steel will film in Vancouver (and those two towns) between the dates of September 21, 2011 to January 20, 2012.- Superman Homepage. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Today Warner Bros. released the first photo showing Henry Cavill wearing the Superman costume he'll be wearing in Man of Steel.
The costume has been changed from its last big screen appearance in Superman Returns.

The costume also seems to give the appearance of having scales or an armor-like texture. [Full story]- Warner Bros. Comment on this Scoop (0)

While David Goyer is busy doing a rewrite on the Godzilla screenplay for director Guillermo del Toro, it falls upon writer Kurt Johnstad to perform a quick tune-up to the words. The writer has been working with Zack Snyder on many different projects including a polish on 300. We've also learned that Jonah Nolan (The Dark Knight) also performed a pass on the Man of Steel script before Johnstad's turn.- Moviehole. Comment on this Scoop (0)
