A new poster for director Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel has been released, and Supes doesn’t look to be doing too well. We know very little about the film so it’s tough to make any assumptions about the story based on this image/poster, but it’s safe to say that Henry Cavill’s Superman won’t be loved by all. The poster does give us a great look at the full suit, however, and it’s certainly in keeping with Snyder’s “serious” approach to the character. The new trailer for the film will be attached to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, so hopefully we get a better idea of what to expect plot-wise later this month.
Hit the jump to check out the poster in full detail, and be sure to leave your thoughts/speculation in the comments. The film also stars Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Michael Shannon. Man of Steel opens in 2D, 3D and IMAX on June 14, 2013.

Here’s the 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.
