Superman Is In Cuffs In New Poster For ‘Man Of Steel’

Superman Is In Cuffs In New Poster For 'Man Of Steel'

You might want to stay up late on December 13th. With “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” hitting theaters at one minute after midnight on December 14th, audiences will be treated to the brand new trailer for Zack Snyder‘s “Man Of Steel” and it will arrive online around the same time. But to help alleviate the wait, a new poster has dropped and it will certainly help spur lots of speculation.

The one sheet features Henry Cavill in his Superman gear, but cuffed and flanked by some military types. Is Clark Kent in some trouble with local authorities or is it all a ruse to help nab Michael Shannon‘s General Zod? Either way, it’s pretty exciting stuff, one that certainly suggests that the imprint of screenwriter David Goyer and executive producer Christopher Nolan will be felt in the approach on this one.

Let us know your theories below. “Man Of Steel” gets arrested on June 14th. [HeyUGuys]

Why is Superman rocking a snakeskin Costume?


Who bedazzled Superman costume?


Can Superman get a mug shot, please? That would be rich.


This is direct still from the comic con footage which looks better than any trailer released this year. If the next trailer is as good as that footage people will be surprised.


as hinted at in the teasers…
Superman reveals himself – public and govt fear him, is 'apprehended' and because he's a good guy doesn't wipe them all out but goes along with it to show he is safe and can be trusted etc…
pretty obvious really.


what a bizarre poster!

Why is Superman in handcuffs? He's Superman? Unless they're made of kryptonite, I don't get it. Still pumped for the movie, though.


I love Superman, do I love him enough that I hope Snyder makes a good movie? not yet.


Props on concept, but looks like shoddy photoshop based on a screengrab, no design intent whatsoever.


Please be good!


Why is the poster so grainy? It almost looks like a mistake rather than "atmosphere".
