New 'Man of Steel' Poster Arrives

Things don't look too good for Superman.

There's a new teaser poster for Man of Steel hitting the internet.

No Caption Provided

The shot looks a little fuzzy but apparently this shot was seen in the footage shown at Comic-Con this past summer.

As part of an exclusive reveal for the home video release of The Dark Knight Rises, the new Man of Steel poster was revealed on the Dark Knight Facebook page. The movie will be in theaters on June 14, 2013.

The new costume looks like Martha made it out of her old sofa.

I actually don't care for this. I can understand the absence of the red speedo but no S curl?

Oh my, he is one beautiful Superman! I wonder if he'll pull off an American accent.

Could care less. I don't like the "edgy" look. Super man in jail... so Clark would just disappear? Wait... I don't care. :)

Actually, he obviously got arrested for destroying public property while being heroic. So cliche, but I would bet on it.

Looks dark and edgy, I'm actually excited for this movie as it gets closer.

Anything purposefully "dark and edgy" usually pulls the opposite opinion from me these days. Although this looks more "moody" than "grim and gritty".

I think people seem to mix up realistic with dark an gritty

Yeah, it's a delicate dance. Verisimilitude, the art of making a flying man seem "realistic" lest the viewer feel disengaged from the experience. It'd doubly problematic in that Superman is supposed to be a hopeful, bright character and yet we find those "unrealistic" as well.

i think just you, it just the base for whatever is mounted on their helmet

I was a bit iffy on the film before, but seeing this actually made me think it'll be good. Or at least semi-good. Maybe we'll luck out and this is based of off New 52 Action Comics.

First of all, I think someone might have watched JJ Abrams' Star Trek one too many times.

Second of all, look at Supes' face. He kinda looks like he's thinking "Really? Handcuffs and four guards? You guys know I'm Superman, right?"

Nolan is taking care of the movie, I have high hopes Superman will finally have movies that will amount to something.

@kriminal: Not exactly. It's kinda like the New 52 suit, only you can see his neck and it doesn't look like rubber armor

Feels really lazy to me. Especially considering I've seen this exact shot in an on-set picture taken by someone. I bet this is where Superman is trying to prove he's not threat. Willingly giving himself up to talk to the brass and explain that he can help or something. Would have been cooler to see him in chains to get that iconic chain breaking shot in the film.

The poster actually makes complete sense. In the trailer, Jor-El says that mankind will stumble and fall but eventually join him in the light. I thought from the start that humans would shun him. I figure he'll still try to save them despite their hatred (because that's how Superman rolls) and when he gets in trouble towards the end, the humans will stand up for him and help him out...in some minor MINOR way but just to get the message across.

@BlueLanternBeast: Seems similar to ACTION COMICS. He's an alien? Those look like soldiers and not regular police officers.

Arrested because he's an alien? Racists.

Speciesist. He's not technically a homo sapien.

I know, but it's a silly word.

This looks awesome! Love the nod to the New 52 Action Comics arc.

It's a cool picture, but it's kind of silly in a way. Superman in handcuffs is funny. He could break them with ease.

I think he is trying to go along with the human protocol on things and prove that our system works.

I think it is just the attachment bracket that the military uses for night vision etc...

In all honesty, The superman Narrative sucks. The only good story event in it is the orphan of dead planet idea. I can't see this comming close to what Nollan did with Batman.

@RedOwl_1 said:

OoOoOh interesting, a bit silly through (The Man Of Steel with metal handcuffs

There is more than enough ways to trap superman the most obvious: Kryptonite handcuffs...

It takes place not long after that photo of him in that dented safe. He gets punched or something of that nature by Zod or another Kryptonian and goes flying through several buildings and landing into that safe and denting it considerably as he stumbles of it, I believe it's not long after the armed forces come, and since it's Supermans first outing, they obviously have no idea if he's friend or foe, and Superman being superman, obviously has no problems with them cuffing him, it's not because he can't break out of it, it's because he's establishing a trust with authority. This looks awesome, peronally!

new 52 suit.? if so then awsome

Yup, enhanced package as well.

Women love it!

I'm sure they'll do some photoshopping wonders like they had to in Superman Returns with the suit. Gotta keep things at a decent rating for the masses of unsuspecting children and mothers bound to view this film!! xD

God, he's the spitting image of Superman. Two thumbs to the person heading the casting department. And I trust that Nolan is not going to "make Superman into Batman." He's not stupid. Still excited to see DC's powerhouse hero gain some respect with the general population again, too. About time.
