Check out brand new stills from Empire Magazine's March Issue which is devoted to Warner Bros.' new Superman film, Man of Steel. The magazine features our first official looks at Jor-El and...Zod. Continue on to view.

With Zack Snyder's Man of Steel inching closer and closer, Empire Magazine will be the first to debut official photos of the movie with three new stills. Thanks to a fan on IMDB, we get a quick look at the inside of the March 2013 edition of magazine. Check out a preview of Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Jor-El(Russell Crowe) and Michael Shannon as GENERAL ZOD!!!

Henry Cavill as Superman..

Michael Shannon as the antagonist, General Zod...

And Russell Crowe as Jor-El!!!

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething 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.”

Man of Steel is set to take flight on June 14, 2013!!! Countdown to epicness!

The more I see of Henry Cavill in the suit, the more he looks like Superman come to life. This pic confirms that fact even more. Hopefully the script will give him the chance to show his true acting ability, unlike Immortals.

Can't wait to see this movie kick ass at the box office :D
Spideyguy94 - 1/28/2013, 3:13 AM
Cavill is the first actor to play superman and actually have muscles like superman, reeve and routh where both very skinny when they played supes. To get muscles like that you need to stuff your face full of protein and weights lift about 4-5 hours a day. Unless he's got padded muscle under the suit.

Cameo of computer Brainiac would be awesome!:)

At least they didn't go with the hideous crystal Krypton sets from the other films. And they seem to have reduced the size of that ridiculous stuffed codpiece on Cavill's suit.

@PatriotsSuperguy change that first photo (which is a users scan) with Empire's photo, which has proper definition and color:

Anyway, Zod and Jor-El look badass. Shannon is going to be the best villain we've seen since Ledger's Joker.
ElShumway - 1/28/2013, 4:12 AM
@SaintSpidey67Re - I agree, but it's just a stupid catchphrase to get peoples (general public) attention and to sell the magazine (and movie) better. Whatever works I guess. MOS looks nothing like TDK so far anyway. It looks way better, thankfully.
JDUKE25 - 1/28/2013, 4:24 AM
Looks so good. All of them. Can't wait to see this
JosephKing - 1/28/2013, 4:25 AM
Looks amazing! But looking in the trailer, the colors of the uniform looks brighter.

Anyway, I don't see much of TDK in these pictures nor in the trailer, but Warner is certainly trying to sell it this way. Nolan has said that Man of Steel will be different, so I'll trust more in his words than Warner's marketing.
Spideyguy94 - 1/28/2013, 4:39 AM
@GordonShumway Agreed. It starting to piss me off when people say they're making superman work dark and gritty. Because for one it doesn't look dark and gritty at all, it looks like a science fantasy/fiction movie. And 2 it's a movie about a humanoid alien that was sent to earth as a baby by his father because his planet was going to be destroyed, who can defy gravity, shoot lasers out of his eyes, freeze things with his breath and has strength that could kill a human by merely bumping into one, and his flies around in a blue and red costume with a red cape. Doesn't sound dark and gritty to me. Apologies for getting of track a bit but it needed to be said.
dodgerfan805 - 1/28/2013, 4:47 AM
This Superman outfit looks silly. Is Superman going surfing with a bathrobe attached to his back? What's the deal with his head/neck? Did they Photoshop his head on another person's body? I'll pass on this movie entirely. Fool me once shame on you...fool me twice, shame on me.
DCjohnny - 1/28/2013, 4:48 AM
wow.... i like it..... man of steel is the most anticipated movie of 2013.... there is no dough

Possibly the most anticipated Movie Year ever! (since last year of course)
JDUKE25 - 1/28/2013, 4:54 AM
I added a little New 52 style to the suit

ElShumway - 1/28/2013, 4:57 AM
@JDUKE Thanks for making me puke. And you could at least use the proper empire cover, not the poor scan, lol.

Zod looks like a man you don't want to piss off.
JosephKing - 1/28/2013, 5:11 AM

Yeah, the suit looks silly. Because the original Superman suit is just soooo badass, right? I have no words to describe how cool was the Christopher Reeve's uniform, that all bright leotard... just pure epic!

But serious, I don't mean anything bad about Donner's, I love the first Superman movie more than any other superhero movie, but let's face it: it was back in a time where superheroes were campy freaks. The original suit worked well at the time, but nowadays anyone can make that with some rags in the basement.


That's a fallacy. There's a huge difference between being darker and grittier in relation to something and being dark and gritty as absolute values. Avengers is darker than Toy Story and yet is not a dark movie.
But I kinda agree with the second part, though.
JDUKE25 - 1/28/2013, 5:13 AM
Complete New 52 design

BruceWayneNewton - 1/28/2013, 5:14 AM
This could be better than TDK. I would not be surprised at all if this turned out to be the best CBM of all time. We are talking about f#cking SUPERMAN!!!
2gold - 1/28/2013, 5:18 AM
I think a little more color would have helped it, just a touch more brightness would make it pop more. Nothing wrong with it one way or the other, just feels like it could benefit from a little more light. I think I might blame the photographer though, dark background did not help those colors.
P862010 - 1/28/2013, 5:21 AM

to be fair the entire nolan trilogy has been called the dark knight trilogy
R888 - 1/28/2013, 5:22 AM
Michael shannon as Zod looks Epicly badass
datNAMEtho - 1/28/2013, 5:28 AM
Is that Zod's CG costume? Looks ridiculously real!!!

Can't wait for this film!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gonna be epic!!
thewonderer - 1/28/2013, 5:32 AM
Comparison to TDK is inevitable, especially with the title of this being a direct influence from that one.

This movie will rock, so much. Cavill and Bale are Superman and Batman to me, what I would pay to get them on screen fighting side by side.

Its so incredible because I can see Cavills good natured aura clashing with Bales aggressive justice. GAH

If this matches the quality of TDK, I'm rooting for DC all the way because I prefer quality over sacrifices to make a shared universe.

@thewonderbellringer Can you go 1 day without making yourself look like a tool?
thewonderer - 1/28/2013, 5:50 AM
I feel theres a decision we all have to make as moviegoers, whatever that decision is, good character or bad its going to change the world.

Quality over Quantity, do we want a shared universe at the expense of quality?

I hope this matches the quality of the Nolan films, and by the looks of this it does.

"Looking forward to this not being like batception whatsoever."

Bro, this movie is taking a ton from "batception" just from the little we've seen. The title, the serious tone, the dialogue. Nolans producing for gods sakes and Goyer helped write TDK.

Don't give me that bs

thewonderer - 1/28/2013, 5:51 AM
and I don't think "MarvelPsycho" should be begrudging dual identities, now should he?
