Manohmanohman. So here it is. Our first image from Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel movie, the Superman reboot due in theaters on June 14, 2013, and I’m split between rolling my eyes at Henry Cavill (The Immortals) and his Kryptonian Mitt Romney hairdo, as well as his Superman suit, which looks more like something out of Joel Schumacher’s book of horrors than it does from Christopher Nolan’s book of everything-I-touch-turns-to-gold. However, with that said, I suppose that is the exact reason I don’t fret too much about the final Man of Steel product we’ll see in 2013. Here’s why:
1. Christopher Nolan: Considering the fact all his films are critical and commercial successes and that he and David Goyer came up with the story for Man of Steel and that he’s serving as executive producer, I feel confident the movie will be nothing short of phenomenal.
2. Zack Snyder: Love him or hate him, you can’t deny his style of filmmaking is eye-grabbing and stylish. If anything, Man of Steel will be pretty to watch.
3. The Cast: Henry Cavill (The Immortals), Amy Adams (The Fighter), Kevin Costner (Company Men), Diane Lane (Secretariat), Laurence Fishburne (Contagion), Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), Julia Ormond and Russell Crowe (The Next Three Days). Need a say more?
