    First Look: Cavill as Superman in ĎMan of Steelí

    Published by Jeff Leins on August 4, 2011

    As cameras continue to roll on Zack Snyderís Man of Steel, Warner Bros has released the first image of Henry Cavill in costume as Superman. The move is likely a preemptive strike to unveil the first glimpse before the paparazzi and other camera-wielding onlookers snap a grainy photo of Cavill emerging from a trailer sipping some Starbucks.

    The impressive cast officially added Laurence Fishburne to the mix yesterday, according to the LA Times. Fishburne will play Perry White, the tough editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet, where Supermanís alter-ego Clark Kent earns a paycheck. Heís also the first African American to ever play the role, dating back to the characterís first appearance in Superman #7 in 1940. Itís a milestone, to be sure, perhaps even overdue, but the real focus should be on Snyder and producer Christopher Nolanís ability to add yet another top-caliber name to one of the best rosters in recent memory.

    The cast includes Cavill, Fishburne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as the Kents, Russell Crowe and Julia Ormond as Supermanís Kryptonian parents, and Christopher Meloni as a military general.

    The suit itself has a rippled shine, like Thorís armor, rather the Spandex of tradition, but the ďSĒ is still prominent and unchanged on his chest and the cape is classic red. Other than the opportunity for wisecracks about his slick-backed hair, there isnít much notably different from the iconic costume.

    Never a fan of Reeves I must say, though he will always hold a special place in the heart of every Superman fan.
    It's not scales, it's the texture of the suit.
    He does look more like the comic book Superman it seems:
    Psalms 144:1
    Praise be my Lord my Rock,
    He trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle !

    The only scenes I really enjoyed from Watchmen were the ones that involved Dr. Manhattan. I thought his character and story were awesome and original.

    Watchmen was brilliant. And I liked Sucker Punch, too.

    I want to see that so bad. Keep forgetting to grab it at Redbox. Looks like the perfect movie for someone with ADD, lol. Plus, hot chicks.

    Actually, it's not really an action flick. I liked it, but it's a little abstract for some people.
