Awesome MAN OF STEEL Concept & Style Guide Art For Superman, General Zod & Faora

Conceptual illustrator, Warren Manser, has contributed on past comic book movies, like Thor and Daredevil, and now he has released his concept and style guide art for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel.

The website, Film Sketchr, has nabbed an interview with veteran concept artist, Warren Manser. They discuss which designs Warren worked on for Man Of Steel, and even discuss the Superman's red briefs, which were abandoned in Zack's version of the suit.
Film Sketchr: It sounds like a dream job. What did you work on for the film?
Warren Manser: I worked exclusively on Superman's suit. The other Kryptonian undersuits were variations of that design, so those were included. I've never had an experience quite like it, and to say that I was excited is an understatement. I created numerous concepts of the Man of Steel, which eventually evolved into the final design.

Zack Snyder was 'hands on' in the process and provided us with great direction. We discussed the specifications and manufacturing techniques we needed to accomplish, and I even created some visual diagrams to aid in communicating the plan.

From there I worked with vendors, costumers, 3D artists, and fabricators to help realize the final product. What I really like about the approach was that we employed both traditional and modern fabrication methods. Incredible hand crafted quality merged with digitally created costume elements, and I was right there in the middle of it. I couldn't have been happier.

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.

Man Of Steel was directed by Zack Snyder, from a script written by David Goyer. The cast includes: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Ayelet Zurer, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, Laurence Fishburne and Richard Schiff.
