General Zod & Superman of MAN OF STEEL Stand Tall on the Cover of Empire Magazine – Plus New Image
Warner Bros.’ Zack Snyder-directed Superman film, Man of Steel, is approaching faster than a speeding bullet. I’m sure many of you, including myself, are still trying to wipe the drool from your mouths after the 3-minute trailer that premiered last week. Man of Steel has already been the center piece of Empire Magazine’s summer preview issue, and now the publication will showcase two collector’s covers featuring Henry Cavill‘s Superman and Michael Shannon‘s General Zod on their June issue. Early indications and reactions imply that the upcoming reboot is the film that Superman deserves, and lord knows we all hope it is. Along with the Empire covers is a brand new image of Henry Cavill in full costume. Hit the jump to take a look.
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Antje Traue, and Laurence Fishburne and hits theaters next summer in IMAX 3D on June 14th, 2013.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
