Henry Cavill and Other Images From the Man of Steel Set

14 Comments

Lots and lots of photos from the “Superman: Man of Steel” movie set in Iowa via a fan Facebook page, including a very good look at star Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, denim jeans and work shirt and all. Hey, he is in his farmboy garb, after all. Also, what’s the deal with the military helicopters and what are they doing in Smallville? I bet those two evil Kryptonians have a little something to do with it…

POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW

    Not liking how angry he’s looking, since that’s definitely not Clark, even if Superman falls into it occasionally.

    Still, after Watchmen, I have faith in any Snyder adaptation forever.

      I agree, he doesn’t have that look of kindness and compassion that both Superman and Clark need to exude. These images may be between takes or something. Clark needs to look awkward, goofy and dorky. Otherwise he looks like Superman without glasses!

        I totally agree. I was saying it from the start, this guy looks too mean and grumpy. Superman is peaceful and compassionate, and, wears brighter colours, I don’t like the dull downed costume, he looks like the evil superman. DC are crap at adapting movies, they fear colour. They just change thing too much…. If it works, DON’T FIX IT! I hate the fact that they got rid of the red pants, now superman looks pantless and just plain WRONG!

  • Marc Ohhhh

    I’m iffy on this movie because of Sucker Punch.

    • Epic_Myth

      Eh, that’s only when he’s writing the material himself.
      Watchmen was a triumph and every change practically made it better, something I’ve noticed again after just re-reading it, and 300 was entertaining enough.

    The truth is, all the superman films before this one have been too soft. I don’t know what comics y’all been reading but the past movies have been off in tone, characters, etc. As far as “if it works, don’t fix it”, well….. it is broke. You’re just one of those people who think just because something is from your past that it’s definitive. You do not approach newness with an open mind. You also don’t focus your criticisms on the right things. I read Superman comics as a kid in the 80’s and 90’s…… Clark Kent wasn’t a different person all together from Superman. He was a disguise….a disguise that wasn’t always held together. Superman isn’t a goody goody. Do you really think the pussy performances Reeve and Routhe gave were that of what the creators of Superman were thinking? Then you’re mistaken. Superman is a nice guy yes, but he’s still a firm, bold individual. There’s absolutely no reason he can’t wear a tough facial expression. This is the new millennium people. Embrace the evolution of the depiction of your iconic characters. Without any change, what the hell is the point of making these movies over and over and over. I for one obviously think the uni-color costume is a refreshing change of pace. The actor’s build actually looks like that of a man with “super” strength. The color palate is easy to stomach now also…..no more bright colored cotton. Finally a more believable Superman for a skeptical 21st century. Mark my words……Snyder will be making a definitive Superman movie in the same fashion Nolan did with the Batman films. I mean damn, give him a break. Sucker Punch might have been sub par for Snyder, but damn, didn’t the great Spielberg have a flop or two………….? I’m just saying.

      right on, this is exactly what I was thinking all along.

      One thing in your post I’ll agree with you about Nate, is that with previous Superman incarnations, Singer’s Superman Returns was a bastardized flop & after Superman II with Reeve’s, the franchise took a notable nose dive from that point. But Reeve’s will always be the quintessential Superman by which all others who follow will be judged & compared (with Tom Welling of Smallville fame being the possible exception to that rule). I’ve read & watched Superman since the 60s myself & what a lot of the younger generations fail to discern in what makes Superman “super” isn’t just his abilities, but rather the “man”, Clark Kent, not vice versa. It’s about the morals, values, & principles he was taught by his mere mortal parents growing up & his application of those morals, values, & principles in adopting the personage of Superman through which to utilize his exceptional gifts for the betterment of his fellow man. If you approach Clark Kent as the “disguise”, then you fail to understand the basis of Superman completely. I refer to Smallville again in my example. The show lasted for ten seasons & was made popular because of the character of Clark Kent, not Superman. Superman is separate & apart. The pussy factor you mentioned in Reeve’s portrayal can be traced back to the interpretation of Superman always being regarded as the worlds biggest Boy Scout. That plus there are few challenges in the world to afford the man of steel the opportunity to go full tilt in expending the true extent of his powers, so that by necessity he must restrain himself to prevent from doing unintended harm or damage. But those qualities which most apply to the character of Superman aren’t subject to “evolution” as they’re timeless characteristics which define who he is. That’s not to say he can’t present himself as bold, tough, or rugged given on the circumstances, but if you have to “evolve” those attributes to make Superman other than what he has always been, then you may as well just create a new character altogether & make a movie going with that premise. And this costume from what I’ve seen? Well, for your assertion of needing to adapt with the times, it’s ironic then that the films makers chose to go with a more retro design which predates the classic ‘S’ shield we’re all familiar with today. And the casting of Lawrence Fishburne as Perry White? Fishburne is an exceptional performer I’ve enjoyed watching in a variety of roles, but honestly I’m sick of seeing the gratuitous liberal sensibilities of political correctness behind these asinine decisions to turn previously white characters into ones of color. If all of that PC BS of “tolerance” & “diversity” had any merit to it at all then maybe we could see some “equal” consideration by making established characters of color white then for a change. Funny tho’ how that particular liberal mindset seems rather biased in its own discriminations much like of those they claim to reject & oppose. Anyways….I’d like to see a decent version of Superman make its way to the big screen myself. One which perhaps didn’t continuously pit Supermans exceptional powers & abilities against Lex Luthor over, & over, & over again. Something to actually challenge him & push his abilities to their limits. Darkseid or Doomsday would be cool. Anyway, that’s just my two cents worth. Take ‘er easy…..

    I foresee another botched Hollywood Superman endeavor in the making. The costume’s wrong. Lawrence Fishburne although an exceptional performer but as Perry White is just wrong. What is it with these liberal lunatics who have to bastardize any semblance of traditional Americana they lay their grubby mitts on?? Do these cult followers of political correctness hate their own Country that much they must completely destroy every aspect of it they try to “re-envision” for a new generation of indoctrinated drones?

    Dont forget everybody Nick Fury was established as a white character but now Samuel L. Jackson is playing him and no one has a problem with that and he’s a pretty big character. Perry White is a smaller character in comparison so his skin color shouldn’t matter. What should matter is can he be intimidating as a boss yet compassionate as a man

    That guy, Nathan Blissite said : “Do you really think the pussy performances Reeve…]

    Man you just lost all my respect.
