As you can see below, Henry Cavill graces the cover of Studio Cine Live magazine as Superman from Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel. As you know, WB rarely releases any new stuff related to this movie, so I guess that some kind of jaggy praise is due.
They are really holding back on it right now (What did you expect? They announced the trailer before The Hobbit, didn’t they, you ungrateful, insolent bunch!), but I expect that the marketing push is going to be insane once the release date is near. Until that day, we’ll take what we can get, but you’re free to open up a wee bit more, WB!
The film follows Superman’s origin story, from Krypton to Clark Kent’s journey to becoming the Man of Steel. Now, you might have read my ‘rant’ and the problem I had with the post-Christopher Reeve Superman films, but I’ve also said that I will give it a shot, nevertheless, and I must admit that I’m not hating what I’ve seen so far. And he doth look decent on this cover, or it’s just my hormones, heheh.
In any case, as long as it keeps the heart and soul of who Superman is and what he represents (with no mushy story parts), I won’t be ‘butthurt’.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething 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. But 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.
The movie also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and others. The new trailer will be released with The Hobbit on December 14th, and the film itself on June 14th, 2013.
