Photos continue to leak out from the set of Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel. The latest photos confirm the groundbreaking and terrifying rumors that began to fly when we saw the first official image of Henry Cavill as Superman. “Surely,” we asked, “they wouldn’t deprive Superman of his external underwear?” But as you can see from these new set photos, deprived him they have. I guess now Superman will be cool. The set photos also show villainess Faora (Antje Traue) rocking a badass cape, more shots of a guy in a mo-cap suit, and in the background there’s a newspaper truck for “The Smallville Sentinel”. Seriously, how much of this freaking movie takes place in Smallville? Smallville was on the air for 23 years. We don’t need to go back.
Hit the jump to check out the set photos. The film also stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Julia Ormand, Harry Lennix, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe. Man of Steel opens 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.
