This seems to be a really big week for superhero reveals. Not only did we get a first glimpse at Bane and Catwoman, but Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures have given us an exclusive look at Henry Cavill ( The Tudors, Immortals) as Superman in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel.
The film also stars three-time Oscar® nominee Amy Adams (The Fighter) as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, Oscar nominee Laurence Fishburne (What's Love Got to Do with It) as her editor-in-chief, Perry White, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are played by Oscar nominee Diane Lane (Unfaithful) and Academy Award winner Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves).
Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), and Faora, Zod's evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman's native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman's mother, played by Julia Ormond, and Superman's father, Jor-El, portrayed by Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
Man of Steel soars into theaters in 2013.
