Comic-Con: Man Of Steel Lands
And the poster is online

15 July 2012  |  Written by James White

Marvel might have brought Iron Man back to Comic-Con and revealed that it would be bringing the Guardians Of The Galaxy to screens, but that wasn’t the most famous superhero to land in Hall H today. That would be Superman, who has returned with Man Of Steel. Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures wheeled out director Zack Snyder and current suit-occupant Henry Cavill to promote it.

Snyder - who tellingly refused to confirm whether the villain is General Zod (despite the news long since being out and actor Michael Shannon having talked about playing him) – brought around three minutes of footage to show to an enthused crowd.

If there was one thing the footage proved, it was that this has a different, more sombre tone than most screen versions of Supes and Clark Kent. The most interesting shot saw gun-toting army troops leading a handcuffed Superman down a corridor.

Elsewhere in the footage, we were treated to narration from Russell Crowe’s Jor-El (choosing to stick with his typical voice rather than trying to do a Brando), a scruffily bearded Cavill as Clark Kent (then clean shaven, reporting for duty at the Daily Planet). And, as you might expect given who it is, we did get to believe as man can fly.

The latest teaser poster for the film was also put up on the screen, and you can see that below.

We're promised the teaser trailer arriving in front of The Dark Knight Rises and Man Of Steel is out on June 14 next year.
