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

May 20, 2013

Man of Steel

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

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?

      When a man's family is threatened, what does it matter what his profession is? You take up arms and you lay the smack down upon those who wish to harm your loved ones. Fail my ass.

      Lol aside from what vidblitz said, this isnt earth dude. Im pretty sure a superpowered near invincible kryptonian scientist isnt exactly a geeky labrat.

      I agree. It's too douchie, but what do you expect from the director of Sucker Punch and the studio that gave us Green Lantern?
  • So much for an intelectual man of peace. Is he even gonna use that thing in the movie? And who will he kill? We'll probably won't even see the gun... just stupid merchandising to sell Toys.
  • Movie Mike
    The very minute minority of people who don't know who Superman is will think Russell Crowe is Superman ROFL. Do you agree? hahah
