As filming continues on Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel, we have a new gallery of set photos to share, which were snapped on the Vancouver set of the film, and feature Superman (Henry Cavill) making what looks to be an impromptu rescue early in his career.
Check out the new photos in all their green screen glory below.
For those who don’t know: Man of Steel will explore the origins of Superman from a modern day perspective, with a script from Dark Knight Rises writing team Chris Nolan, Jonathan Nolan and David S. Goyer. A lot of a hints point to the story incorporating the revised and updated Superman mythology featured in graphic novels like Superman: Secret Origin, Superman: Birthright and most recently, the DC Comics “New 52″ reboot of the character, which is more serious in tone. Fans are, as usual, divided over this attempt to revitalize superman is a bad or good thing.
If nothing else, Man of Steel has an impressive cast of lauded actors, including Oscar-nominees/winners like Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. We’ll know more about Henry Cavill’s ability to play Superman when we see the actor leading the Greek epic Immortals this fall.
With Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) at the helm, many are expecting this film to at least have some epic action – if the gallery below is any indication, they may not be disappointed on that front. The pics show Cavill (presumably as Clark Kent) aiding a rescue crew on the scene of some disaster. There’s a lot of green screen, but we imagine that the environment will be a pretty harsh one. Cavill is still sporting the plain clothes and facial hair we saw in some earlier Man of Steel set photos:
Those worried that Henry Cavill wouldn’t bulk up enough for the part should be able to put their minds at ease.
There are plenty of other pictures, but you’ll have to head over to SuperHero Hype to see them.
Man of Steel will be in theaters on June 14, 2013.
