A new behind-the-scenes image of Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel has surfaced online.
Nearly six years ago, Henry Cavill made his debut as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and while the film itself received mixed reviews, this incarnation of the DC Comics hero earned a legion of fans who would love to see him return for a second solo movie. For now, however, a new behind-the-scenes photo offers fans a glimpse at Henry Cavill as Superman on the set of Man of Steel while filming the battle against Zod’s forces in Smallville.

Henry Cavill’s future as Superman is currently in question, with Warner Bros. reportedly planning to put the character aside for the time being. Instead, Henry Cavill will soon trade in his Superman suit for the lead role in Netflix’s adaptation of The Witcher. Based on the fantasy series of novels and short stories by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher will follow Henry Cavill as the monster slayer for hire named Geralt of Rivia.
Here’s the official synopsis for Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel:
A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, and Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent.
Man of Steel is now available on Digital HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
