The latest issue of Empire Magazine feature loads of previews from upcoming movies, which includes new images from Kick-Ass 2 and The Wolverine. But Empire has chosen Superman (Henry Cavill) to grace the issue’s cover. I guess this means that Empire believes Man of Steel is the biggest movie of the summer, and that’s a reasonable argument. Like any summer, there are plenty of big movies, but people seem incredibly jazzed for Superman’s return to the big screen.
Hit the jump to check out the covers. The film also stars Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe. Man of Steel opens June 14th.
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.
