Man of Steel: New Poster

Posted by Grey Tuesday, December 4, 2012

It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's the second poster of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and Henry Cavill's Superman is apparently in trouble with the authorities. 

Thanks to the fans who were asked to share/embed a countdown clock to the release of the Blu-ray/DVD of The Dark Knight Rises (it's today!) in order to unlock an "exclusive reward" for Man of Steel, a new poster has been released for Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot of Superman.

Featuring Henry Cavill's Superman apparently running into trouble with the authorities, the Man of Steel is handcuffed and escorted by soldiers under a perturbing lens flare in this rather lacklustre poster. Nevertheless, the poster gives us our first official close look at the full costume. Hit the jump and click on the image to check out the poster in high resolution.

Meanwhile in Gotham... In a related news, Christopher Nolan, who will be the executive producer of Snyder's film, was interviewed by the folks over at The Playlist and touched on some aspects of the connection between Man of Steel and his epic Dark Knight trilogy. In short, none. In details, hit the jump to check out what Nolan has to say when asked if Superman fits into the Dark Knight Universe

“Well, somewhat, but I wouldn’t want people to think we're doing for Superman what we did for Batman.

It's very much Zack’s film and I think people are going to love what he's done. I think it's really remarkable to take on that character. Superman is a completely different character than Batman. So you can't in anyway use the same template. But David Goyer had this, I thought, brilliant way to make Superman relatable and relevant for his audience. Zack has built on that and I think it's incredible what he's putting together. He's got a lot of finishing to do on that. Superman is the biggest comic book character of them all and he needs the biggest possible movie version which is what Zack's doing. It's really something.”

Here's the official synopsis of the film:

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.

Man of Steel is currently scheduled to be released in 2D, 3D and IMAX on June 14, 2013.
