Some more set photos from Man of Steel has surfaced, and Henry Cavill is still shirtless and bearded. They don’t reveal too much, as the background is greenscreen, but it looks like he’s running on a helipad. Someone should probably tell him that he can fly. We’ve seen quite a few set photos of the “homeless Clark Kent”, so I’m wondering just how this fits into the film as a whole and how much screentime is devoted to bearded Superman. Apparently the paparazzi were onset, so we’ll be updating this article if any other images surface.
Hit the jump to see 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. [Update: As expected, more set photos have surfaced giving us a clearer look at what’s going on. They’re included after the jump.]
Here’s a possible 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.
