Warner Bros. is set to launch its DC movie universe this summer as 300 and Watchmen director Zack Snyder reboots the Superman franchise with Man of Steel, and thanks to USA Today we now have a brand new shot of Henry Cavill (Immortals) as the Last Son of Krypton:
Man of Steel follows Cavill’s Clark Kent as he struggles to come to terms with his emerging powers and find a place for himself in the world. However, when Earth comes under threat from the Kryptonian General Zod (Michael Shannon; Boardwalk Empire), Clark must become the hero known as Superman, not only to shine as a beacon of hope for the world, but also to protect the ones he loves…
