First Look at Henry Cavill as Superman


Warner Bros. has released the first official image of actor Henry Cavill as Superman in the Man of Steel reboot [see all of our Superman news].  Why they released it almost two years before the film is out is a little confusing to me.  This looks like a promo picture and won’t be the real deal when it comes time for it.  The cape for starters is very big, like look at that thing, massive.  We have the raised “S” chest symbol and the texture of the costume is looks like what we have for the new Spider-Man costume.  It looks like rubber, not that there is anything wrong with that.

I’m still excited for this movie and must say that as much as I support Brandon Routh and what he did with Superman, Cavill was a great choice too even if he does use his powers to rob banks apparently.

Warner Bros today released a first photo of British actor Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel, the franchise reboot that’s being directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan. Cavill stars with Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Julia Ormond, Russell Crowe, Chris Meloni, Harry Lennix and Laurence Fishburne. Currently in production, Man of Steel is slated for release on June 14, 2013.
