New poster for Man of Steel unveiled | Geek Alert

A fortnight ago Warners Bros. asked fans to share the countdown to the home video release of The Dark Knight Rises, with an exclusive reward from Man of Steel released as a gift once the page was shared enough. The reward has now been unlocked, and takes the form of a brand-new poster for the film. The poster shows Henry Cavill as Superman, who is bound with handcuffs and looking quite downtrodden at his situation, though unless the cuffs are made of Kryptonite he probably won’t be in them for long.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Man of Steel will see the eponymous hero take on two fellow Kryptonians, one the maniacal General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and the other his partner-in-crime Faora, played by Antje Truje. Amy Adams will play Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane, and Lawrence Fishburne will star as her editor-in-chief Perry White.

Ayelet Zurer and Russell Crowe will play Kal-El’s biological parents Lara Lor-Van and Jor-El, while Diane Lane and Kevin Costner will play Mary and Jonathan Kent, his adoptive parents. Also confirmed for the upcoming reboot are Harry Lennix as General Swanwick, Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy and The West Wing actor Richard Schiff as Dr. Emil Hamilton.

You can see the poster in full below, while Man of Steel hits US & UK cinemas on June 14th, 2013.
