Now that production on The Dark Knight is moving into the sound stages for a period, attention seems to be turning to Zack Snyder’s currently filming Superman reboot Man of Steel for potential spoilerish photos. Members of the Facebook fan community for the film have been snapping away on set and have managed to grab a few intriguing stills of Henry Cavill’s Superman (who from this distance doesn’t have look like Dean Cain’s version of the character from the 90′s!) squaring off against Antje Traue’s Faora (who reminds me more of Master of the Universes’ Evil Lynn!).
The snaps, although far away, do give us our first full body glimpse at Superman’s costume and clearly Snyder has removed the authentic red shorts, going for all blue until the boots. The design is naturally similar to the new costume that will debut as part of DC Comics’ relaunch of their universe.
Thanks to Coming Soon for bringing the snaps to our attention.
Man of Steel is filming now for a June 14th, 2013 release. Henry Cavill is the Man of Steel, a blonde haired Amy Adams is Lois Lane and they star alongside Diane Lane (Ma Kent) Kevin Costner (Pa Kent), Russell Crowe (Jor-El), Julia Ormond (Lara Lor-Van) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White)
