First Look At Henry Cavill as Superman

Here’s your first look at Henry Cavill as Superman in the upcoming reboot of the franchise titled, Man Of Steel, courtesy of the WB.

The movie, which isn’t expected until 2013, is being directed by Zack Snyder, from a script written by David Goyer, with Christopher Nolan producing.

Along with Cavill, Man Of Steel also stars Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Superman’s mother, played by Julia Ormond, and Superman’s father, portrayed by Russell Crowe.

Harry Lennix also co-stars as U.S. military man General Swanwick.

I’m more positive about this, just on this photo. I just hope the conflict in this film is more enticing.


I don’t mind it. Looks like they went for the wetsuit look.

At least it isn’t this mess :-( LOL


@ Dankwa, I don’t know why I’m thinking ‘honeycomb’. Maybe because I had cold cereal for breakfast…or … I don’t know. LOL

Cavill’s hair looks as hard as that suit. And where are his eyebrows? Where have they gone!


Hmm, Amy Adams as Lois Lane?

@Tamara “His suit looks like pliable, ink-stained honeycomb. ” LOL I was thinking rubber, but I’ll defer to your opinion.

Image looks hard though. Gives a glimpse of what should be an action packed picture!



Loved the old Supes. Didn’t particularly care for the latest with that new kid. Smallville sufficed…to the tune of 7/8/9 seasons. More a lover of “the Bat” than the “Man of Steel”…

His suit looks like pliable, ink-stained honeycomb.

Hardly looks like Cavill in the shot.

Is that a busted vault? Who’s the villain in this? Lex again?

Not excited, but mildly interested.


I love Henry Cavill his a great actor, but I’m a little hesitant on how successful this movie will be. I’m not a Superman fan, but I give a shot just for him:)


I like Henry Cavill as well but ummm…well, I’ll just reserve judgement until I see more.


Dope!! Love him!


Large, small… widget size–not feeling this look. I like Henry Cavill as an actor, he had me engaged on the Tudors, there’s only one superman in my mind… Christopher Reeves (RIP).
