We’ve seen Henry Cavill’s Superman outfit, and personally, I thin it’s rather cool. It’s good to see ol’ Superman getting a bit of a makeover and it would appear director Zack Snyder is planning to spruce everything up a bit. New images have recently appeared online, courtesy of ComicBookMovie, of Russell Crowe as Jor-El, and you can view them at the bottom of this post.
It looks to Me like Crowe is having way too much fun in his almost Medieval King type of look, in fact, had these not been pictures from on-set of the new Superman movie, you could argue that Crowe was sneakily filming some historic movie about a King, could you not? The design looks pretty sweet, and even the straight talking, take no crap Russell Crowe seems to suit the outfit.
Man of Steel boasts are superb cast, alongside Cavill and Crowe there is also Kevin Costner, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne and Christopher Meloni. The new film is written by David S. Goyer and Jonathan Nolan. The expected date of arrival in cinemas is 14th June 2013.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question ‘Why am I here?’ Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. When the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as Superman, not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
