First look at Henry Cavill as the new Superman

IS IT a bird? Is it a plane? No… it’s the first image of Henry Cavill as Superman.

As we all know, style-over-substance director Zack Snyder is helming the reboot of the biggest superhero and his choice of Brit actor Cavill did come out of leftfield.

Now we get a chance to take a closer look at the new Supes in this impressive publicity shot for Superman: Man of Steel.

From what we can see, the tones of the suit are much darker than before – following in the footsteps of the new Spider-Man, and THAT ‘S’ on his chest dominates a textured suit.

The image is sure to get fans of Superman talking – and with Snyder involved, it’s certain things will consist of loving it or hating it. That’s just the way it goes with Zack’s movies.

Superman: Man of Steel is due for release in 2013.
