New MAN OF STEEL Set Photos Feature Bearded Henry Cavill as Clark Kent

     October 5, 2011

Some new set photos have surfaced for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. They’re not as revealing/exciting as the ones of Russell Crowe in his Jor-El costume that we reported on yesterday, but they do feature Henry Cavill doing his best hobo impression. Cavill is seen sporting a dirty beard in character as Clark Kent. It’s rainy, he’s wearing a jacket that would invoke sad Don Draper, and he’s interacting with a scraggly (but still cute) dog, so one can assume that Kent/Superman falls on some hard times during the course of the film.

Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Harry Lennix, and Christopher Meloni. Man of Steel opens June 14th, 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.
