he is hottie sexy warrior
I'm so gonna go see this. Not because of Henry being shirtless and wearing a skirt but because...I do like those Roman/Greek movies/tv shows. *nods nods*
His chest is amazing--covered in hair or not!
He looks sexy as hell all ripped like that! That movie looks really good to me too and I have to see it.
I don't c the trailer ?????????????
you can watch it here
I recognise some of the sets from '300' in that trailer. It look like a remake with a different name.
If Butler didn't drop his pants in 300, I guess Cavill won't either
So is that the only trailer available at the moment? They didn't show Poseidon not once, unless that was supposed to be him skydiving into the ocean and causing that tsunami...which was brief.
but Butler dropped his pants in 300....
Henry Cavill Engaged: Superman Actor To Marry Showjumper Ellen Whitaker
She's not Lois Lane, but on the plus side, Superman star Henry Cavill's new fiance may be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
Cavill, who will star in director Zack Snyder's Superman reboot "Man of Steel," asked British showjumper Ellen Whitaker to be his wife, the Belfast Telegraph reports.
"I couldn't believe it when he asked me to marry him. I thought we were there to celebrate his birthday. It was such a surprise and I am so happy," Whitaker told the paper.
She's certainly joining the Cavill family at the right time; Henry, who will co-star with an all-star cast including Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Ma and Pa Kent, and Michael Shannon as evil General Zod.
Before he dons the blue tights, Cavill will next appear in "Immortals," a Greek action flick.
Hopefully this movie has a decent fight scene unlike Superman Returns which sorely needed one. Does anybody know who the villian is going to be? (please dont say Lex Luther)
"Your life is yours alone. Rise up and live it."
But I guess the latter wouldn't happen unless they made it to a sequel...would it really be proper to have Supes getting his ass pounded (not literally you freaks) in his first re-reboot movie? But I wouldn't be shocked if it was Zod...which it probably will be. =/
Edit: I managed to find this http://superman.bz/ten-villains-for-...ills-superman/
I was on point but was missing Granny Goodness and Mister Mxyzptlk. I would love to see the Female Furies if Granny is involved!
^ Wow thats really cool thanks for finding that! I'm hoping for Zod or Brainiac and Metallo. I dont mind Luther but I really dont need to see him for awhile. Also if he's in it stop making him "the funny" Luther from the first movies. Returns had to much of an 80's feel to it. I'll be seeing this one anyway but they've yet to do it right IMO

Meet the New Superman!
Star Henry Cavill steps out, talks about role
At the panel for the Greek mythology epic "Immortals" this past Saturday at Comic-Con, much of the attention was focused on British actor Henry Cavill, who plays Theseus, the film's lead. But the elephant in the room was the fact that Cavill landed, just a few short months ago, the role of perhaps the most recognizable superhero of all time: Superman. As Cavill, best known to American audiences for a role on "The Tudors," strode out to loud applause in Hall H, it seemed that much of that ovation was for the movie he reportedly begins shooting sometime next month.
That film, "Man of Steel," is an attempt by Warner Bros. Pictures to once again kick-start the saga of Krypton's last son after the less than enthusiastic response to 2006's "Superman Returns," with a then-unknown Brandon Routh as Kal-El and director Bryan Singer behind the camera. This time, "Watchmen" director Zack Snyder is taking a crack at it, with producer Christopher Nolan looking over his shoulder and a cast that includes Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as Gen. Zod, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and Kevin Costner as Pa Kent.
But all the supporting stars in the world won't mean a thing unless two things happen: a) the man playing Superman is convincing, and b) the script works. "Man of Steel" has already been nagged by recurring whispers of script problems, with scribe No. 3 (Kurt Johnstad) currently taking a pass at working out the kinks. The recent news that the film has been bumped from a December 2012 release to a June 2013 arrival has only fueled speculation that the screenplay isn't ready, although Cavill did his bit to defuse that by saying on the panel that it was "one of the best scripts I've ever read."
Although that was all the audience would get out of him, the 28-year-old actor did open up a little more in the roundtable interview he did later that afternoon. Discussing whether the publicity and attention inevitably surrounding "Man of Steel" will affect him, Cavill said, "You make a choice whether you focus on -- and I hate the word -- the celebrity aspect of it or not. I have chosen not to. I know I can't make everyone happy, but I know I can do the most justice I can possibly do to a character or any character if I put my all into it, and that's the choice you have to make."
As for the responsibility of playing the most iconic superhero in pop culture history, Cavill -- who, like most actors working in the orbit of Chris Nolan, refuses to give away anything specific -- simply said, "It's very humbling to be chosen to represent such an enormous character with so much depth to it as well. But at the same time, it's a true honor, and I want to do justice to the character, and I want to be the right guy for the job. I want to prove them right." http://movies.msn.com/paralleluniver...rse/?gt1=28101
They should've used Braniac honestly. Aside from Lex Luthor, Braniac is arguably Supes' most compelling villain intellectually while being powerful enough to pose a physical threat. Arguments could also be made for Mr. M, Hank Henshaw or Bizarro.
Darkseid should be the culmination of this particular run and Doomsday should just be forgotten for being lame.
Note: I personally find Zod boring, but he is capable of throwing hands with Big Blue so I'm not going to complain too much about the choice.
Now where the hell is my Black Adam World War III/Black Reign movie? :P

Henry Cavill: Superman Workout For 'Man Of Steel'
Because he's not from Krypton, Superman-like strength doesn't come quite so naturally to Henry Cavill. Luckily, though, he's got a plan to get his body to Man of Steel proportions.
Cavill spoke with Total Film Magazine about his training for the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed reboot of the classic comic series, revealing his gut-busting diet and routine.
"I'm on 5000 calories a day... You've got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs...you've gotta keep your hunger levels going," he told the magazine. "I'm training two and a half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman."
Luckily for Cavill, he's had plenty of experience pushing his body to the limit; he was in absolutely breathtaking shape for his upcoming ancient war movie, "The Immortals," and talked about the transition and difference between that lean and mean shape to his Superman physique with Movieline in April.
"It's going to be a different kind of shape. When you see the Immortals shape you'll see what I mean," he told the site. "We obviously haven't had the final brief yet, it's going to adapt and change as far as when Mark sees my body adapting to the training he'll go, 'Okay, Henry can do this,' or 'Henry can't do this,' or 'His body will look better like that.' It'll be fine-tuned and tweaked as we go along. But I think it's going to be a different sort of shape from 'Immortals.'"
what a job to have!
when Mark sees my body adapting to the training he'll go, 'Okay, Henry can do this,' or 'Henry can't do this,' or 'His body will look better like that.' It'll be fine-tuned and tweaked as we go along.
He looks great! He seems more Superman to me than any of the other Superman's. This is what he is in the comic. Great.
LMAO.. he looks NOTHING like Superman. Too short, too feminine. I hope this movie bombs, and with the re-writes and delays, it probably will! haha
I like Ryan Gosling, Chris Pine, Chace Crawford, Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, Tom Hiddleston, Kris Allen, Armie Hammer, Teddy Sears, Jon Kortajarena
much bigger pic over at Famousmales- the Superman suit has scales all over it- he looks great, but the scales are weird
I didn't know anything about yet another re boot. But WTF He looks nothing like the superman we all know and love Im thinking George Reeves, Christopher Reeve, Dean Kain, Tom Welling and Brandon Routh all look like the comic supermen.
He is a great looking guy ( don't get me wrong ) but he just hasn't got the geeky look Clark Kent needs, And to be honest if this is an offical photo of superman, then they have got it sooo WRONG.
I mean come on Angelina Jolie looks like Laura Croft
Hugh Jackman looks like Wolverine
Patrick Stewart Looks like Professor X
And to be honest Christian Bale is great as batman ( but any of the others who have played him have been OK ) as were not really bothered what they look like as Bruce wayne and under the batman cowl could be anyone.
But this guy just hasn't got the look of any of the incarnations of Superman, DC has presented us in comic form. And that is a big mistake !!!!!!!!
I love the picture and I can't wait to see how the movie turns out. People keep harping on about how Henry Cavill doesn't look like Superman--well, Brandon Routh ha the "look", and that movie SUCKED! On a similar note, when they did the reboot of the Batman series, how many people thought that Christian Bale didn't have the look of a believable Batman/Bruce Wayne? Yet look how those films turned out. All I'm saying is that we shouldn't get caught up in what may be a superficial technicality.
who gives a crap if he looks like superman? as long as it is a good film that all that matters. Isn't the latest Spiderman black in the comics? Things change
Henry is going to be great and super hot in this role. Hope it is huge, like the last one should have been.
I wonder what all the naysayers will actually say when the movie actually turns out to be successful. You can snap-judge just from one bad photo. A photo hardly represents an entire feature length film... -__-
Also there's a trailer running around the net somewhere, gotta find it watch it.
Henry looks fantastic! He's going to be an amazing Superman!
Not diggin' the new costume. Article link below also features a pic of Andrew 'Spider-Man' Garfield in costume.

the previous Supermen wore synthetic jersey in bright colours but this new suit is looking VERY dark.
I hope the whole film won't be so colourless.
I had the urge to bring a torch to view all those monotonously dark and dimly-lit films Batman, Lord of the Rings and all the Potters.
I liked Brandon Routh as Superman... but that was more nostalgia, as I thought he looked so much like Christopher Reeves, especially when he was Clark Kent.
his hairs didnt work for me for superman pics
please make it look better
I'm not liking the new costume either.
The hairstyle looks like something from the 70's disco era. Give his costume bell bottoms, polyester shirt, and platform shoes, then it could work.
Costume is fine - it's his hair that doesn't see to flow with the character. Henry is a great actor and is certainly beautiful enough to handle what the Man of Steel should look like. His eyes and the looks he gives off his facial expressions speak volumes. That said: this was not a good picture. The costume is fine, although it troubled me to see such a dark atmosphere. -Leave darkness for Batman.- Superman is a great, bright hope. The light in the dark. For the most part the picture is fine; however, it's not his best shot. In this picture Superman looks older and tired with a slight receding hair line.
And for Henry being British : Superman is ultimate foreigner. so.... complaints about Henry's home country don't have a leg to bigotly limp on
Okay, he looks seriously hot as Superman. I will say, though, that I didn't expect the suit to look so different. It might take me a little time to get totally comfortable with it. I kind of miss the red trunks--they're just so...Superman, I guess. In any case, I'm just counting down the days until the first trailer comes out.
Side note: I wasn't feeling his hair in the first pic, but seeing these new shots, I'm feeling much better about the 'do.
Oh Superman! I want your rod of steel!
This guy is hot!
It's a shame they darkened the colours so much but damn, Henry just looks so fantastic as Superman! You really can't fault him!
Removing the underwear was a wise decision.
no underwear yay!!
I always find it interesting that so many people think a character should stay exactly true to the original model or dismiss it as a "forgery" or bad casting. Superman has been evolving since he began and this newest film is just one more view of him. It would be a pretty sorry state in the fantasy industry if everyone stayed exactly the same for years on end. After all, in the end it is the story that counts, not the physical look of an actor. I understand that people get defensive about their heroes because I do as well (Sean Connery IS James Bond) but I also think contenders deserve to bring their own talents and interpretations of famous characters to the screen and to the stage. At least give them a chance without just dismissing them out of hand.
god damn he is gonna be the hottest superman ever
He reminds me of Christian Bale at the start of Batman Begins
