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.

    Awesome Media Pass.

    Those digital watermarks really add that extra special something…

  • TheIceJ

    I’m not sure Ma Kent dresses in white gowns down on the farm, so I’m thinking these aren’t character shots. Nice, though.
    And yes, those watermarks are lush.

    no glasses for Clark Kent?

    alright i have a hunch of how the movie will go, and how his look will change during the course of the movie.
    1. has a beard, finding his role in humanity, is a fisherman
    2. shipwrecked, remembers the last time it happened when the bus plunged into the river
    3. suddenly out of nowhere Zod and his cronies come and decide to take over the Earth, making it their own Krypton they were banished from
    4. Clark knows he’s the only one who can stop them and preserve a free world
    5. revisits spaceship for signs of what to do, is led to the fortress of solitude
    6. shaves beard, gets costume and now this is the superman look
    7. sees Lois in the heat of things a few times, ‘admires’ a reporter’s guts
    8. eventually defeats Zod, embraces his new role as superman, but still wants to live a human life and be as close to the news as possible so he can step in when he needs to
    9. joins the daily planet, and grows beard spontaneously (heck, he can shoot lasers from his eyes) and puts on glasses to totally disguise himself.
    10. to become superman again, he contracts his facial follicles to make the hair drop off…hahaha

      I wasn’t going to read your theories in case of spoilers. But then I thought to myself “oh yeah, he has no idea what the fuck he’s talking about” so I read it. The end.

    The glasses disguise has always been laughed at even to the biggest fans (myself included) so glad they ditched them. I’ve been an advocate for Supes having some sort of mind control/block that keeps people from recognizing him. That’s better than glasses at least. Like all of his powers, he has to learn to use them with restraint and only for good. He did have mind-control kisses in Superman 2.

    I liked to think as the glasses a glamour that disguises Superman magically.

  • Eric Nixon

    I don’t think they’re in character in the photos. They’re all way too well dressed. I think these are just generic publicity photos.

  • fooledagain

    No longer needs glasses for a disguise. Superman parts his hair on the right. Clark, the left.

  • orangey

    Definitely not character poses. Just very pretty actors in nice clothes. You can still find these floating around on the internet.
