Superman Breaks the Sound Barrier on New 'Man of Steel' Banner
The poster campaign for Man of Steel has finally picked up with the film just over a month away from release. A new banner popped up yesterday with an awesome new TV spot, and last week a high-flying new poster surfaced with Superman (Henry Cavill) flying at breakneck speed. Now another banner has popped up with a flying Supes, but this one is from a distance, featuring the superhero breaking the sound barrier. It's an image we saw in the very first teaser trailer for the film last summer with The Dark Knight Rises, and this time there's some lens flare to go along with it. Will Zack Snyder use them as much as J.J. Abrams?
Here's the new banner for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel from the film's Facebook page:
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 June 14th this summer. Will you be there?
Why the lens flare? Silly.

It's like a carrot on a stick for the JJ audience types.

Oh yeah they already used this gag on Iron Man 1. I bet it's the same artist that did it on that show and re-purposed it for this one. One trick pony.

Poster looks quite nice.

Nah, Zack makes a totally different use of lens flare. I don't think we will notice as much, because he tends to use it when it's actually necessary and appropriate. Not that I don't like it, but JJ's use is just overkill sometimes.
