Celebrate Superman’s 75th birthday today with this newly-released image from Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. Henry Cavill (Immortals) shows off the new super-suit from head to toe which is closer to the more modern comic book styles, notably the lack of red trunks. Also, according to the most recent trailer that fired up fanboys everywhere, that “S” on his chest may not really be an “S” after all.
Also starring Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne and Russell Crowe, Man of Steel opens June 14th. Hit the jump to check out the new image.

Here’s the official synopsis for Man of Steel:
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.
