Another Look at Future Superman in Immortals

EW has some new images from Tarsem Singh’s “Immortals”, starring Henry Cavill, aka the Man who would be Superman. Plus, Mickey Rourke and Freida Pinto and some other fellas.

Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares. Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion…until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope. Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders—including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and cunning slave Stavros (Stephen Dorff)—one hero will lead the uprising, or watch his homeland fall into ruin and his Gods vanish into legend.

Starring Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Luke Evans, Isabel Lucas, Kellan Lutz, Joseph Morgan, Freida Pinto, John Hurt, Mickey Rourke and directed by Tarsem Singh.

The God killin’ begins November 11, 2011.

    Definitely needs to bulk up for Supes, but this looks like an interesting greek mythological adventure. I’m sure we’ll get that Theseus is actually Zeus’ son (he was in the legend) and all that but this sound spretty interesting as it’s more human vs human than human vs gods. But I’m sure we’ll get some great creatures and such. Cavill looks good with the cape. Let the photo manips begin.
