I do miss Superman’s trademark hair curl, and was very skeptical of the textured (almost chainmail looking) suit, but I think it makes sense. Superman’s body is indestructible and he needs a costume that can take the same beating. At least it isn’t armored like Superman’s costume in the new DC Universe debuting in September's comic books! Here’s my only question, is his red underwear gone? I can’t tell from the photo above.
Man of Steel also stars Amy Adams as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as her editor-in-chief Perry White, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Superman’s adoptive parents Martha and Jonathan Kent. Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Julia Ormond, and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Russell Crowe. Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.
Man of Steel is slated for release on June 14, 2013.
