First look at Henry Cavill as Superman, the Man of Steel
Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Thursday, August 4, 2011
Warner Bros. has released the first image of Henry Cavill wearing the new Superman costume we'll see him sporting in Man of Steel.
The suit in Man of Steel has been redesigned from the last time we saw a big screen Superman wear it in Superman Returns. The most noticable change is the "shield" on Superman's chest: it's larger than the emblem worn by Brandon Routh in Superman Returns. Also apparent in the new Man of Steel costume is the coloring: whereas the Superman Returns colors were darker and muted on the suit, here they appear to be close to or the same hue as the classical Superman costume worn by Christopher Reeve.
Also, when Warner Bros. released the photo they issued a press release that included the casting done so far. Included in the group were Russell Crowe as Superman's biological father, Jor-El; Julia Ormond as Supes' natural mother, Lara Lor-Van; and Christopher Meloni's character received a name, Colonel Hardy.
Man of Steel also stars Amy Adams as Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane; Laurence Fishburne as Planet editor-in-chief Perry White; Diane Lana as Martha Kent; Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent; Michael Shannon as General Zod; and Antje Traue as Faora, Zod's right-hand woman and another villainous Kryptonian.
Man of Steel flies on the screen come June 14, 2013.
