Jor-El Looks Pretty Intimidating on 'Man of Steel' Character Poster

Kicking off what will likely be a series of posters leading up to the release of Man of Steel, a new character poster has arrived featuring Russell Crowe looking quite intimidating as Kal-El's father Jor-El. We've heard Crowe's voice on nearly all of the trailers and TV spots, and this puts him front and center, seemingly ready for a fight. We're not sure how much action Jor-El will see in the film before he sends Superman to Earth, but since the character has his own poster, that implies there's a good amount. Again, the lens flare is prominent, and we're still wondering if this will be akin to J.J. Abrams use of the light element in Star Trek.
Here's the new character poster for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel from Warner Bros. Pictures:
Man of Steel, the new DC Comics Superman reboot, is being directed by Zack Snyder, of Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen & Sucker Punch previously. Christopher Nolan is producing, and co-wrote the story with David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, The Unborn, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance), who wrote the script. Warner Bros is bringing Man of Steel to theaters everywhere June 14th this summer. Will you be there?
