New High-Resolution Image from MAN OF STEEL

     March 25, 2013


Warner Bros. has released a new high-resolution image from Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman film Man of Steel.  This new image—which shows Supes in handcuffs being escorted down a hallway by a barrage of military personnel—is actually pretty familiar, as it was used to construct the pic’s most recent poster and it’s a notable part of the film’s latest trailer.  In addition to giving us a brief glimpse at Christopher Meloni‘s Colonel Hardy character (in the back on the far right), this image also poses a number of questions like why is Superman in cuffs to begin with and why doesn’t he just bust out of them?  Hopefully all will be answered when the film finally hits theaters this summer.

Hit the jump to take a look at the high-resolution image.  The pic stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, and Russell Crowe.  Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.

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.

  • Type \”Whatever\”

    Sorry, I have to say it. This is an image we have seen before (duh?), and frankly the latest iteration of Superman just walking along a corridor doesn’t build any excitement for me.

  • Chase

    Ummm we’ve seen that pic like 30 times.

    • Sean

      But have you seen it so wide you could an out of focus dimly lit Christopher Meloni?

  • sean kay

    this isnt new, title should say “newer”

  • Convoy

    I still say it’s a gesture of good will. Of course he can break out of them at anytime. It’s Superman! No man, no matter how many of them there may be, can overpower him enough to get handcuffs on him. So he must have allowed them to be put on him.

    • Chris Nolan Hype Train Derailed

      And I still say this will be bullshit because Chris Nolan is a hack fraud money whore punk bitch.

      • Sander

        Well…that escalated quickly.

      • Fisher


        I really wonder why people like you are so angry. 12-year-old…or mentally unbalanced? Hm.
