Man of Steel

A new trailer for Man of Steel is just over week away when it plays before The Hobbit in December 14th (and hopefully online before or shortly after that). Well, hot on the heels of the first poster for Star Trek Into Darkness (another film getting a big push with The Hobbit in the form of a 9-minute prologue and standard trailer), is a new poster for Zack Snyder's new Superman movie has arrived. We're not sure why the image of Superman himself is so blurry, but it does raise some interesting questions as Superman seems to be under arrest and in military custody. Is General Zod framing him for destruction on Earth? See below!

Here's the new poster for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel from The Dark Knight Rises Facebook page:

Man of Steel - New Poster

A child sent to Earth from a dying planet is adopted by a couple in rural Kansas. Posing as a journalist, Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) uses his extraordinary powers to protect his new home from an insidious evil.

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 on June 14th, 2013 next summer. You in?

Like it. Snyder did a great job bringing Dr. Manhattan to the big screen and it looks as if he has done an amazing job bringing Supes to the big screen. He may over use slow mo but the man is a damn fine director in my opinion.

Hate to say it but slow mo in the case of Superman might even make sense,since the man moves faster than the speeding bullet.I hope it does not get overused though.

You know the more I think of it the more it makes sense...some needs to be used...just not a lot.

This is where the other superheroes should start to come together and form the Justice League of America! And help Superman out of whatever this mess he got into.

It's obviously voluntary.Maybe not if those handcuffs are kryptonite.

Hope Snyder doesn't overdo slo-mo scenes, it's annoying! But "Smallville" did some scenes like that. Just don't overdo it, please!

Weird six-pack. Cool poster though

Still interested in seeing this one, can't wait for the new trailer.

Chris Groves on Dec 3, 2012


This looks all wrong. Wrong wrong and more wrong. The actor is just not superman. Sorry. And that outfit? WTF? Fuck Snyder. Really, besides some cool fighting scenes in Slowmo, WHAT has this guy done? I have zero hope for it with the exception that im curious to hear what Zimmer will do with the score.

there has been a lot of superman movies already, if this one looked the same and was made by a director other than one as unique as Snyder it would be boring because it wouldn't be refreshing. I for one am excited to see how Snyder brings a new style to superman because of how long he has been around a new style is much needed.

I couldn't agree more. It feels like Green Lantern all over again.

12 this....superman can break solid rock as big as the matterhorn... why is he wearing sm cuffs....????

michel on Dec 3, 2012


instead of raging out on a teaser poster without context maybe try to be logical and put some sense into it. like maybe super man is made out to be a monster by the human race and so he is being compliant instead of breaking out to prove his worth to them.

Zade_92 on Dec 3, 2012


Hello...if you look at the title it too is pixelated. Explanation, los res photo! BAM!!! I know, I just blew your brain!!!!

Today's history lesson: Socrates. Ever stop to think that maybe the "boy scout" will be faced with his place in society? Does he adhere to the laws of man or is he above it? This type of dilemma is great for the development of a character that is basically God-like. Think! Or perhaps those cuffs are simply made of kryptonite... ; p

Remember the movie 'Hancock', he had powers but he still went to prison and did his best to abide by the laws (when he was trying). He may or may not have his powers, but being a boy scout, he would abide by the laws and allow the cuffs to stay on.

Michael McRorey on Dec 3, 2012


There is a huge problem with Superman...he can move faster than bullet, but then a lot of times you see how some villain defeat him in some lame way...if he used his senses and fast movement he would be undefeatable

David Darida on Dec 3, 2012


I like the movie shot for the poster, but I hate the fact that they dilberately put the shot out of focus and is almost blury. This shot should be clear and in focus... IMO

DarthVerous on Dec 3, 2012


Got to admit, no one saw this coming for a Man of Steel poster....

conradthegreat on Dec 3, 2012


I can only imagine their reactions when they realize those handcuffs aren't really doing anything... O.o

Fidel Reyes on Dec 3, 2012


Superman has given up his powers once again like the last time he faced General Zod..that's why he's in handcuffs....

I have no faith in Zack Snyder and WB stable of behind the scenes "talent". If you look at the crew list behind each film it's the same names as garbage like Green Lantern and Superman Returns.

Legion on Dec 4, 2012


I actually thought Superman Returns was a good movie.Sure it had Lex Luthor with another mad scheme, but it had a lot of heart and got Superman/Clark's small-town boy scout charm across well.
