While the source raises some questions about the validity of the information, someone over at the SHH Boards has posted some detailed descriptions of Man Of Steel Concept art that was shown at a WB Tradeshow. I ran this through my source that works at WB and they told me the description is legit. The show started off with the Jor-El trailer that has been released in theaters. After that the concept art was shown that seems to confirm information I brought to you earlier, that Man Of Steel will showcase a war torn Krypton. The art was drawn by James Acheson who worked on Daredevil and Sam Raimi's Spier-Man as well as Michael Wilkinson who worked on 300 and Watchman. Check out the detailed description below, and final WARNING contains spoilers.

- Henry Cavill in Supes suit full body, and then a half body shot of cavill using the monochromatic suit possibly, the uncolored suit for some early test shot.
- Jor-El suit minus his armor full body, and Jor-El with his intricate Kryptonian battle suit with some rifle.
- Zod with complete suit with cape and rifle, Zod with his black undersuit full body and then Zod being shackled in neck and hand, connected.
- Zod's prison structure, called Black Zone, floating, also function as a transport kind of vehicle. Guards are patrolling the rooms inside the prison.
- an artwork of a specific scene showing the arrival of the Black Zone in the sky of Metropolis.
- Zod's using helmet and different armor when his first arrived on earth, possibly adjusting the air and all.
- Jor-El scout ship, who floated and landed in Artic i guess, consist of Supes Kryptonian suit inside. there's an artwork of the cockpit also.
- The design of Some sort of KEY to activate the ship that were shown in Comic Con.
- two designs of bad ass rifle and handgun courtesy of Planet Krypton
- a highly rendered art of Henry as Superman


UPDATE:

Along with this info the poster gave some details about what General Zod's suit looks like. "From the picture that i saw, definitely dark, the same color with Faora's which is black," he describes. He also said that Zod's cape is normal on Krypton but torn and ravaged on earth. He also has a helmet that he wears that the user said looks like a combination of Stormtrooper and Engineer's helmet breathing apparatus from Prometheus. As far as Zod's crest you can expect it to have the same outer shape as the El's shield Jor-El's, the inside is swirls and basically it looks like a fat C shaped but facing the other way around.

Along with Zod's suit there is a was a piece of concept art of the Black Zone floating over alien terrain that the user believed to be Krypton. To bring this visual to life he said that it looked like a mixture of Deathstar surface and Hades landscape of Blade Runner.

Hopefully we will be getting some new visuals from the movie soon. While none of the art has been released, these descriptions will have to do for now. You can catch Man Of Steel when it is released June 13, 2013.

@Jaoroar whats your avitar?
inkslinger616 - 9/12/2012, 9:05 PM
One word describes Superman in 2013...irrelevant.
inkslinger616 - 9/12/2012, 9:14 PM
Let me rephrase that with an equation.
DC Films - Christopher Nolan = Deadhorse that they insist on beating.
DioFoRio - 9/12/2012, 9:29 PM
there was also a description of the theme song from the movie on that website.


"Hmmmm -Baaaadooo-mmmmmmm-lalalala-hmmmmmmm"
DioFoRio - 9/12/2012, 9:30 PM
Want a trailer....not a teaser For Worlds Deadliest
superpooper - 9/12/2012, 9:33 PM
Snyder is absolutely the best guy to direct a cbm. Now writing one...eh...no comment, but visually he has a gift. If anyone can resuscitate the blue boyscout it's Snyder. He knows how everything should look and blends just the right amount of fantasy and realism. After Nolans bland all too realistic world Snyder is just what DC needs to breathe some life into their slowly dying film prospects. I'm not saying they should make a Justice League film, but if they do they need to get Snyder involved.
Bandido - 9/12/2012, 9:34 PM
You know what? We probably won't see anything till December :(
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 9/12/2012, 9:41 PM
Sounds awesome! Maybe Snyder can get me interested in Superman, maybe.
Wonder what the running time for this will be. I wonder if they'll spend much time on him as a child, or of him guest starring on Deadliest Catch. Cause with the villain, story, etc, it sounds like this will have to be 3 hours, and if it delievers, I'll be okay with that.

Heya boys and girls, a new member here but a avid visitor to his websites since 2009, but hesitant to jump in since many dangerously commotion happens here some times... I hope i can have a good, fun great healthy discussions here :)

@JULEZ13: thanks, i'm the one who post those thread, and thanks for directing it to the other CBM members.

Feel free to ask me here or there...i'll describe it as best as i can.

Here is some artwork I did
Photobucket
inkslinger616 - 9/12/2012, 10:08 PM
I remember how excited everyone was about that Superman Returns travesty, and look how that turned out and just because a director has had success in the past does not mean it is a home run everytime for example snyder did make Watchmen and it sucked just like Bryan Singer nailed it on the first X-Men but also made the travesty mentioned above. The fact is that Superman in the last 20 years has just been a disappointment and I foresee another epic failure in the works. DC and WB needs to stick to making tv shows for teenagers otherwise you end that sorry excuse of a movie they called Green Lantern.
TheRationalOne - 9/12/2012, 10:11 PM
Did you not bother to proof read this? The typos and errors are completely ridiculous.
astromerc - 9/12/2012, 10:24 PM
@ thosemortalmen Thanks man, I did this 2 weeks ago. I wish I had the description back then. I just used stuff I found on the net and the comic con trailer.
inkslinger616 - 9/12/2012, 10:34 PM
Constatine, V and red, are all great but dont you find it odd that other than Bats DC cant get a decent movie out of any of their staple characters and no for your information marvel has sorely let me down repeatedly I just do not believe superman has anything left in him and the big screen is like krpytonite and i am a purist in the sense that watchmen should not have been attempted the book was enough. The people that will watch a Superman movie are folks like me that love all things
comicbook. I have two kids that are going to make me watch anything animated or superhero related and they have no interest in Superman that franchise is dead and when TMOS fails there goes any chance of a Justice League flick. I would love to be proven wrong but history says i wont be. Sorry, but be realistic.
KingEmperor - 9/12/2012, 10:38 PM
I wanna see what Michael Shannon looks like as Zod.
TayDee - 9/12/2012, 10:43 PM
Besides the action, it sounds like it will be a dull film Just gonna be a Superman 1 and 2, TASM, Batman Begins type flick. Nothings gonna change except the action scenes
AlexDeLarge87 - 9/12/2012, 11:10 PM
Sounds cool.

But why just Description ? :(
WinterSoldier24 - 9/12/2012, 11:10 PM
Man, I can't wait for this flick to come out! A Superman movie WITH action? Count me in!

;P
ShadowlordSavage - 9/12/2012, 11:12 PM
@thosemortalmen What country is that? I'm always happy to hear there's still people crazy for the character anywhere.
ShadowlordSavage - 9/12/2012, 11:20 PM
Judging by the description, there's quite a few liberties taken here, but I actually don't mind most of them at all. It seems pretty cool and very different. However, the only thing that truly bothers me about the description is what others have commented on. Why not use the phantom zone? Why reduce the hellish pocket dimension into floating prison ship called the Black Zone (which sound kind of lame to me)? Ah well, if anything it is still pretty interesting to say the least and I gotta say this definitely separates itself from the previous films.
