If you are wondering what Henry Cavill will look like when he dons his duds for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, take a gander at the image Warner Bros. has released.

Though it looks like the Superman costume we are used to, it does look a little thicker and almost looks like the amour costume Jim Lee has cooked up. Can’t really tell in the picture if he’s wearing his underwear on the outside, but I do see the texturing looks similar to that Spider-Man costume we’ve seen recently. Guess that is the new H’wood way…
After Marvel’s big news yesterday, there was really only one way for DC/Warner Bros. to step up – announce that Laurence Fishburne will play Perry White in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel movie.
Yup, we now know what Fishburne will be doing following his surprise exit from CBS’ CSI this past May.
Over the years, there have been a number of talented actors who have played Clark Kent’s boss at the Daily Planet, including Jackie Cooper, who played the newspaper chief in the 1978 Christoper Reeve Superman movie. This is pretty big news, but I really wonder if they’ll make Fishburne say, “Great Caesar’s Ghost!”?
Fishburne now joins a rather impressive cast that consists of Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Michael Shannon.
Variety is reporting that Russell Crowe is in talks to play Jor-El in the upcoming Zack Snyder Man or Steel movie to be released by Warner Bros. If cast, Crowe will join Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Kevin Costner (Johnathan Kent), and Henry Cavill (Superman).
Can Crowe take on the role of Jor-El? Can he pull it off better than Marlon Brando? And in a fight, whose father would win – adoptive father Johnathan Kent, or paternal Jor-El?
Here’s some really interesting news for those hanging on every bit of news regarding the new Superman movie. Warner Bros. has announced that Michael Shannon will star as General Zod, who will go toe-to-toe with the Man of Steel, played by Henry Cavill.
Snyder stated, “Zod is not only one of Superman’s most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don’t. Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role.”
If you haven’t seen Shannon in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, you’re missing out on some intense acting. If he brings the crazy to Zod in the movie, it will be full of awesome.
And if you didn’t catch it earlier, WB announced the movie’s title will be Man of Steel. I’m wondering if this is to distance itself from the last Superman movie, and let audiences know this is going to be something different?
The Man of Steel is written by David Goyer, based on a story by Goyer and producer Christopher Nolan.
Sucker Punch has arrived in theaters, and though there have been few pre-release reviews, there is no doubt many Spoilerites made their way to the theater to see it for themselves.
We want to know what you thought of the Zack Snyder film. Was it awesome? Was it lame? Did it pack the punch you hoped, or do you feel like a sucker for spending your money? And more importantly, does this movie give you any concerns about Snyder’s next film – Superman?
If you make a Superman movie, does it have to take all of the other Superman films into account? Zack Snyder doesn’t think so, and as he told Hero Complex, it looks like the new Superman movie will be a reboot.
“Literally, the one thing that everyone can start to think about is that we’re making a movie that finally goes with the approach that there’s been no other Superman movies. If you look at ‘Batman Begins,’ there’s that structure, there’s the canon that we know about and respect but on otherhand there’s this approach that pre-supposes that there haven’t been any other movies. In every aspect of design and of story, the whole thing is very much from that perspective of respect the canon but don’t be a slave to the movies.”
Henry Cavill is playing Superman, with Diane Lane cast as Martha Kent. Kevin Costner has been reported as signing, but no big announcements have been made. I like the idea that we should go into this new movie without the baggage of all the other films, television series, animated shows, and what not getting in the way. On the other hand, we’ve all heard Kevin Smith tell the tale of the last time someone wanted to re-design Superman.
So there are some new Sucker Punch posters that are floating around the Interwebz, and they once again feature the sexy-sexy done up in an early movie theater poster motive that just screams “WATCH ME! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO WATCH ME!”
Rumors are a great way to fan the flames and get people worked up, often over nothing. However, the latest Superman movie rumor has us smiling with anticipation. Seems Zack Snyder has been mulling over who should play Jonathan “Pa” Kent in the franchise reboot/sequel/relaunch, and came up with Kevin Costner.
Now, while nothing is confirmed, it makes sense that the aging actor, with the soft smile and knowing eyes, to play the man who would give Clark perspective on the world and set him on the right path. While it would have been nice to give a nod to John Schneider, Coster still has cache, and I could easily see him pulling off a Gleen Ford moment in the film.
Rumors are rumors, so until someone steps up and claims this if fact, take it with a grain of salt.
