First Official Screenshot/Picture of Henry Cavill As SUPERMAN in Zack Snyder’s “Superman: Man of Steel”

Stop EVERYTHING you are doing DC fans! The very first official image from Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot Superman: Man of Steel has finally been unleashed, revealing rising star Henry Cavill in full Superman costume! Check it the motherfuck out…

Well it certainly looks like we are in for the Superman film we’ve all been waiting for. The Superman from the comic books has yet to be seen on screen (I love the Reeve films, but come on, Superman is a badass now a days in comics), but here we have it; clearly a much more edgy and action-oriented Superman. Little-known actor Henry Cavill is taking the reins (you may remember him from mini series The Tudors). He is being joined by an all star cast that includes Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon and Amy Adams.

Now, back to the picture, it looks like they’ve decided to drop the silly red underwear which is a good thing in my eyes. Instead they’ve opted for a costume that resembles the newer look of Superman in the comics, like this:

The new costume in the rebooted series of DC comics "Superman", out this September.

Overall I’m extremely happy with this, and it looks like we’ll finally get to at least see Superman throw a fucking punch. And no, the lame-ass fight scenes in Smallville don’t count. If you want to check out a REAL Superman vs. Darkseid fight scene, then check out the clip below:

Superman: Man of Steel will hit cinemas some time in Summer 2013. It stars Henry Cavill as Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishbourne as Perry White, and Russell Crowe as Jor-El. It is written by David Goyer, directed by Zack Snyder, and produced by Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros.

Thoughts? Think this new edgy and gritty tone is exactly what Superman needs? Or do you think it should be a more brighter, family-friendly affair like the Christopher Reeves films? Comments below…





  1. Yes, I’m just as excited as you are. I hope they really allow Superman to show audiences what he can really do.

    • Indeed, we have yet to see the *real* Superman in live action films. The Bruce Timm-produced animations portray him perfectly, but the Reeve movies (as brilliant as they are) don’t really show the Superman for the powerhouse that he is. Apart from the Richard Donner cut of Superman II of course, when Supes delivers that killer punch.
