You know who people like? Wolverine. He’s a cool dude. Perhaps it’s that line of thinking that has led to this scene in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel. We previously saw some set photos of Superman (Henry Cavill) bearing a beard, but there he simply looked like a homeless person. But as you’ll see in these new set photos, Supes has gone a little feral and has decided that perhaps he should be the best at what he does even if what he does isn’t very nice. Then hopefully he remembers that he’s Superman. I don’t know where Snyder, screenwriter David Goyer, and producer Christopher Nolan are taking this thing but set photos like this make me slightly anxious about the final product.
Hit the jump to check out the set photos. The film also stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Harry Lennix, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe. Man of Steel opens June 14, 2013.

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.
