First Look at Henry Cavill as Superman!

The first official photo from Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel has been released.  Check it out below!

Interesting, to say the least.  The image definitely evokes a more gritty sense than what we’ve seen from Superman in the past.  Actor Henry Cavill sports the new take on the classic costume, which prominently features the classic “S” shield, unlike the Escher-esque design senn in Superman Returns (2006).  Comic artist Alex Ross will be happy that the shield is bigger this time around.  However, the suit bears some noticeable alterations.  The red shorts appear to be absent, echoing Superman’s new look in the upcoming DC Relaunch.  Also, we have yet another superhero costume with a bizarre little pattern all over it.  I don’t know what those little bumps are, but I sure hope they’re not a million tiny “S” shields.

Due in theaters on June 14th, 2013, Man of Steel also stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and the recently added Laurence Fishburne
