Man of Steel: First Look

It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's the first official image of Henry Cavill as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel!

Following the confirmation of Laurence Fishburne cast as Perry White, the Editor in Chief of the Daily Planet in Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot of the Superman film franchise, Man of Steel, today Warner Bros. took everyone by surprise by releasing the first official picture of Henry Cavill in full Superman costume.

With no further ado, lo and behold! The Man of Steel, Superman!

And yes, we here at The Daily Zombies kinda like it.

No crazy-ass redesign and more importantly, no freaking iconic hero poses like the first official image of Brandon Routh's version of The Last Son of Krypton in Bryan Singer’s disappointing Superman Returns in 2006 (embedded below for your reference).

The costume is suitably classic with a touch of retro, evident from the seemingly scaly texture. So Superman maybe breaking in (or out) of bank vaults in the film, but make no speculation on the film's plot now as the image may just be a photo shoot intentionally set up. Nevertheless, things looked promising.

Here's the official press release from Warner Bros.:

BURBANK, CA, August 4, 2011 – 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.

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.
