First Look At Henry Cavill As Superman

The Man Of Steel Is Here

It won't hit screens until 2013, but here's your first sneak peek at Henry Cavill as the Man Of Steel, in Zack Snyder's new take on Superman. It's immediately apparent that the primary colours of the costume have been slightly toned down, and that this is one Kryptonian not afraid of getting his hands dirty. But some things don't change; he's clearly still capable of crumpling a bank vault up like a normal man crumples unwanted sheets of paper.

The film also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as the Kent parents, Julia Ormond and Russell Crowe as his Kryptonian parents, Michael Shannon as fellow Kryptonian General Zod and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, editor of the Daily Planet. Harry Lennix, Antje Traue and Christopher Meloni also star.

Christopher Nolan is producing, as well as having worked on the story with David S. Goyer, who then wrote the script. We can expect to see the finished piece on or around June 14, 2013 - so expect a steady trickle of news from now until then.
