The film also stars three-time Oscar® nominee Amy Adams (The Fighter) as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got to Do with It) as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Oscar® nominee Diane Lane (Unfaithful) and Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves).

Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Julia Ormond, and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).

Behold Superman in all his glory and whats this? Did he manage to put his underwear on underneath his clothes?

After having the misfortune of seeing Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, it will take more than just a picture of Henry as Superman to get me back on track for this movie.

    It’s a good picture, but they will have to do a lot more to get me on board for this Superman movie. I’m a life long Superman fan and I was greatly disappointed in the last installment. I am very skeptical towards this film just by looking at the cast list, but I will try to hold my judgement (most of it) until after I see the movie.

    Cant wait for this movie, they need a GOOD modern superman movie, because the last one sucked -.-

  • norberto

    I just hoped they put more imagination into the suit, whe whole thing has the same look as always and even the same texture for all of it, and belt buckle? Come on! Put some sense on it and ditch it or at least make something useful out of it.

    More of the same I say

  • norberto

    Where the hell are his eyebrows?

  • Lawrence

    Hope they don’t screw this one up. They already messed up Green Lantern. Fanboys want a true balls-to-the-wall action-oriented/fight-oriented Superman movie. Maybe Zack Snyder should ask Michael Bay for advice on the action scenes for this movie.

      Why do that? he’s already the king of stylized slo-mo.

      • MadMax_007

        Dude, did u pay attention to the action scenes in Transformers 3? Snyder is just the prince of stylized slo mo, BAY IS KING!

        ;0 Shit! I forgot…..My Bad, My Bad.

        Prince will do

  • Andrew

    Actually, the more closely I look at it, I think that Henry Cavill looks more like a pissed off Christopher Reeve. Well, since I love Christopher Reeve as Superman, this could work. I just hope that Zack Snyder doesn’t decide to make this dark like the Nolan Batman trilogy. I can tolerate a certain level of darkness in Superman, but not Batman level of darkness.
