Your First Look at Russell Crowe as Jor-El in Man of Steel

Jor-El Comic BookHey, kids, wanna see what Russell Crowe as Superman’s biological daddy Jor-El looks like two years before the film opens? If you answered No, then good for you. But if you answered Yes, then go learn some self-control — and take a gander at the set image of Crowe in full Jor-El costume on the film’s Vancouver set below. No looks at Ayelet Zurer, Superman’s native mom yet, who recently replaced Julia Ormond in the cast.

Crowe joins Marlon Brando, Terence Stamp, and Julian Sands as people who have played Superman’s pops in various incarnations of the character’s existence over the years.

POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW

Russell co-stars with Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Michael Shannon as bad guy Zod, along with Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Christopher Meloni, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, and Harry Lennix.

The Zack Snyder-directed reboot soars back onto the big screen on June 14, 2013, a whopping two years away.
