New Man Of Steel Images Soar Online
For Zod's sake...

16 April 2013  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: EW

submit to reddit

We now know that Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel will involve no Kryptonite, so there's no chance of Supes being felled by a stray piece of glowing rock this time around. That said, there's a high chance of Supes being brought down to earth by one Mr. General Zod (Michael Shannon) and from the looks of these new stills from EW, he really does mean business.

 

In total, there are nine new snaps over at EW.com for you to take a look at, but may we point your eyes in the direction of Antje Traue's Foara, seen twice here - once with some sort of Prometheus-like headgear as she wraps her hands around Amy Adams' Lois Lane. In Superman and Superman II, Ursa was based on the comic book character of Foara, whose key trait was an extreme hatred of men, save for Zod.

Whether this remains the case in the 2013 take on the beloved superhero's story remains to be seen, but it's something to bear in mind in advance of the next trailer...

With a script by David Goyer, Man Of Steel features Henry Cavill as the suited and booted hero himself alongside Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Ayelet Zurer, Richard Schiff and Christopher Meloni. It lands on June 14.

Sorry, but this Shannon guy looks way to cartoon-villain like. A silly face and that's all. Not impressed. More

So it's a remake of Superman 2? The more images I'm seeing the less I'm liking. More

RE: Could Zack Snyder make a good movie?
But it's his constant use of slow-motion that bothers me. Otherwise, I really liked Watchmen. More

RE: Could Zack Snyder make a good movie?
Erm Zack Snyder has made some really great films. Dawn of the Dead, 300 and The Watchmen. The Watchmen was particularly strong. One of the best Graphic novel adaptations ever made. Sucker punch had some great original ideas as well. With his amazing action direction and visual flare this should be a real action packed Superman movie. Just what the doctor ordered. More

I've seen lots of great Zack Snyder trailers, but I've yet to see a single good Zack Snyder movie, what to speak of one with any heart. Could this be the first? I'm not holding out a lot of hope -- but it would be nice... More
