It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Superman (Henry Cavill) in handcuffs! Wait, what? Check out the new poster for Zack Snyder’s upcoming film, Man of Steel.
You’ll notice that his handcuffed wrists are covering the very controversial lack of red underpants on Supes. It’s a pretty provocative image. I have to say, the marketing for this film is overcoming the initial hesitation I had when I heard about another Superman film. I loved the two trailers, which dealt with the duality Superman will face. His Kryptonian father wants him to grow up to be a hero among men. His Earth father just wants him to be a good man. Now this poster indicates that the rest of the world might not get him in either guise. What do you guys think? Man of Steel will hit theaters on June 14, 2013.
