The film will also star 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.

Man of Steel is being produced by Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer, from a story by Goyer and Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster and published by DC Comics. Thomas Tull and Lloyd Phillips are serving as executive producers.

Looks okay to me. I think it would better if it was standing shot. We could see it better then.

Interesting.  I like the leathery look of the suit.  The S looks huge on his chest.  Very "throwbacky".  Looks like an action shot.  Presumably, somebody threw Superman into that bank vault.  Must've been somebody pretty strong, huh?

I like.

Ok based on this photo:

  1. The Cape it too long
  2. His hair is too puffy.

I hope that this is test shot that they have tweaked. Other than that I think it's okay. Wish they had released a clearer image.

OK not the greatest shot to be the first released to the public but I'm okay with it. I will say this Cavill definitely looks like he put on some muscle and that alone gets him the benefit of the doubt from me.

I love the cape but the S symbol looks so placed on there, like somebody can easily peel it off like a magnet. Dont like it. Otherwise, good pic! & Im sick of people praising Brandon Routh. Brandon Routh was horrible as Superman!! Too young & pretty boy-ish!

EagleManiac 8/4/2011 7:56:56 AM

Looks pretty good so far. No real complaints due to the shot not being very clear. Will wait and see what else the send us to look at!

TROLLS!!!!!  lol

I think the new suit looks good! I think its on Par with the new costume in the comics for the big reboot. I like it so far :)

C'mon! It's a great shot! Look at the determination on his face, and the way he's standing: straight out of the pages of the comic book. The costume is awesome. I think it's better than even Reeves' costume.

I'm more pleased with this than recent photos of what Bane looks like.
