As the summer movie season begins, material relating to some of the year’s biggest releases is starting to pop up everywhere; one glance into Target or Toys R Us reveals countless items relating to Iron Man 3. With Marvel’s big gun out of the way, Warner Bros. has now started to roll out some of the merchandise for its major superhero pic of the year: Man of Steel. We’ve been sent some photos showing off some of the big Man of Steel items, including t-shirts, artwork, and even a close-up look at the actual suit from the film.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images. Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.
These photos were taken at Kitson on the 3rd Street promenade in Santa Monica. You can buy a lot of it online here.
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.
