‘Man Of Steel’: Zack Snyder Shares First Pic Of Henry Cavill As Superman

Cavill
Director Zack Snyder has shared the first ever picture taken of Henry Cavill suited up as Superman from his audition for Man of Steel.

The director shared the photo on his Vero account revealing a clear look at Cavill in a replica of the Superman costume worn by Christopher Reeve in the original 1978 film directed by Richard Donner along with the caption: “I knew when I saw him he was my Superman.” You can check out the photo below.

On top of the spectacular directing and visual effects, Cavill himself received the most praise for his performance in the big budget blockbuster that kicked off the DCEU taking in a total of $668 million at the global box office.

He’ll be seen once again later this year as Clark Kent/Superman in the upcoming superhero team-up flick Justice League also directed by Snyder.

The film also stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ezra Miller as  Barry Allen/The Flash, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Amber Heard as Mera, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielson as Queen Hippolyta, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon. Here’s the official synopsis:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League hits theaters November 17, 2017.

    Um Cavil’s Superman is the main thing people complain about. They’ve been complaining about him since MOS. Research man

    • 12stepCornelius

      Nope, wrong. They complain about the script and Cavill not getting enough lines. Not about Cavill himself. Most just want more material for him.

      • razorstar90

        Notice that I said Cavil’s Superman, not Cavil the actor. I’m talking about the character. Superman in the DCEU is the character that needs the most work. After BvS, Superman came off the worst. It was Gal Gadot who everyone loved. People liked Affleck’s Batman, but no one was talking about Cavil’s Superman.

          This article is about Cavill’s performance as Superman in Man of Steel – a role that most people agree he carried well despite that movie’s various numerous flaws.

          If the article were talking about BvS you might have a point*, but take a look at the heading of the article again and then read it once more and see if your comment still applies.

          (*and even then you still might not be fully right since most of the problems of BvS,…AGAIN, revolved around writing and the script/story, the direction and the editing more so than the performances.)

          • 12stepCornelius

            For real though. I thought Cavill gave a great nuanced performance as Superman. I could understand people wanting him being more outspoken and whatnot in BvS, but based on the story and the kind of Superman they’re setting up, it worked that he remained largely reserved and careful about what he said and when he said it. Reminded me a whole lot of Paul Dini and Alex Ross’ Superman in Peace On Earth. In fact, Cavill’s Superman in BvS is like 85% THAT Superman.

            And don’t forget some tips from Brithright and All-Star 😉

      It’s just you, dude.

      Nobody else complains about Cavill.
      The script maybe.
      But certainly not Cavill’s performance.

  • Nick Farina

    Cavill has been spectacular as Superman. Hoping Matthew Vaughn is confirmed very soon for the next film!

    • Peter James

      I’m still holding out hope that we get a George Miller Superman if the Vaughn deal falls through.

      • Nick Farina

        George Miller, Mathew Vaughn or Brad Bird would all be wins for Supes.

    Thanks. This was really interesting the first time the photo was leaked in 2014. https://www.flickeringmyth.com/2014/03/see-henry-cavill-in-christopher-reeve/
