^ baka gumamit ng salamin. gagamitin niya para mapabanda yung laser beam niya sa mata don sa facial hair. di kaya ng gunting.
more facial hair and torn pants.
mukhang hindi indestructible yung kanyang pantalon.
Si Hulk dati, ngayon naman si Spiderman. Confused ata 'tong si Clark e.

^ Hahaha. Hopefully, this one turns it around.
Did you read any of the Superman runs? Did you watch any of the Christopher Reeve movies? What did you try to take in from the previous material that’s been released and possibly incorporate into your version of Clark Kent/the Man of Steel?
Cavill: I avoided watching anything which was someone else’s interpretation of the source material. I didn’t go back to the movies and watch them. I didn’t go back to the TV series and watch them. I didn’t want to take that and have that influence my interpretation and my performance of the character. Where the character truly belongs and where the character truly comes from is not from the movies or the TV shows; it’s from the comic books. So I went straight to the comic books and had stacks of them and just read and read and read and read and read. I enjoyed so much learning about the character in such a dense manner. The comic books were my source of material; the TV shows and movies were someone else’s interpretation and so I left that to them.
Why is he shirtless anyway? :Where's the suit under his clothes? Or baka naman Smallville scenes 'yan.
‘Immortals’ and ‘Man of Steel’: Henry Cavill was raised to fly
In “Immortals,” the hyper-stylized Greek mythology movie that opens this weekend, Henry Cavill plays brave Theseus, a man who is told by gods and oracles that he has a date with destiny. Cavill can relate, in a way, because a little more than a decade ago, while he was still at a boarding school in Buckinghamshire, England, Cavill shook hands with the future.
The campus of Stowe School was being used as a backdrop for the kidnap thriller “Proof of Life,” and between shots, star Russell Crowe was amusing himself by booting a rugby ball through the posts as dozens of boys at a safe distance watched with wide-eyed fascination and a bit of fear. Cavill was in the crowd and decided that they looked foolish, so he marched up to the movie star and introduced himself.
“I took his hand and said, ‘Hi, Mr. Crowe. My name is Henry, and I’m thinking of becoming an actor. What’s it like?’ And we talked just a bit,” the 28-year-old Cavill recalled. “A few days later I got a signed picture of him in ‘Gladiator’ that said, ‘Dear Henry, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’ You can imagine how I felt when I got to the end of that first journey of a thousand miles and I’m working with Russell Crowe. …”
Indeed, Cavill and Crowe have been in Vancouver filming Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel,” with Cavill playing Superman and Crowe, the hero’s doomed alien father, Jor-El, a role that Marlon Brando memorably handled in 1978 — five years before Cavill was born. The cape of Superman is heavier than it looks: There is intense pressure to live up to the history of the hero and to create a franchise that will fly for Warner Bros. now that Harry Potter’s magical box-office run is over and Christopher Nolan’s Batman series is drawing to its own conclusion with next year’s “The Dark Knight Rises.”
During a Los Angeles visit to promote “Immortals,” Cavill was asked again and again about that other movie, but most times the sculpted star politely steered the conversation away from Metropolis and back toward ancient Greece. “Immortals” is from Relativity Media and the producers of “300,” Mark Canton and Gianni Nunnari, and its fevered battlefields and liquid physics will remind many moviegoers of that 2006 Snyder release, which continues to hold the record for one of the biggest opening weekends of any R-rated film. The movie went on to gross $456 million worldwide.

MAN OF STEEL CASTS A YOUNG LANA LANG
Zack Snyder's Man of Steel has added another famous character from the Superman mythos to the production, albeit in a younger form than fans might have been expecting. Superman Super Site confirms today that 13-year-old Jadin Gould will play a young Lana Lang in a flashback scene to Clark Kent's Smallville childhood.
First appearing in 1950's Superboy #50, Lana is the teenage girlfriend of young Clark. She was a central character in the television series, "Smallville" (played by Kristin Kreuk) and has also appeared as a teenager on the big screen in 1978's Superman: The Movie (played by Diane Sherry) and later as an adult, re-entering Clark's life in Superman III (Played by Annette O'Toole, who would later play Martha Kent on "Smallville").
At her young age, Gould already boasts an impressive resume, having appeared on television shows like "Chuck," "Rizzoli & Isles," "The Mentalist" and on the big screen in Battle: Los Angeles.
Now filming, Man of Steel's cast also includes Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, Laurence Fishburne and Richard Schiff. It is targeting a June 14, 2013 release.
Clark's first flight? Or is he too young for that?
This is Jim Lee's Superman i hope this will do good together with Batman this year then they can start casting and filming the "Justice League" movie with "Darkseid" the bad guy.
There's a footage description I've found from imdb, and since IT'S imdb, I'm not sure whether this is real or fake, even though the poster revealed "his" identity:
He added this later to confirm his identity:I’m a visual effects supervisor for the upcoming film After.Earth, the M. Night picture. I’ve also done work on Avatar, Iron Man, and Sin City. I’m on IMDb. I’ll admit I check my own page from time to time. It feels good.
I frequent this board often, I’m a huge comic book fan (as shown by the movies I’ve worked on). Last night at a VFX conference there was a sizzle reel shown by Weta. In this sizzle reel there were two beta level(most likely from a trailer) clips shown. One only about 6 seconds long, the other much longer.
The former was Clark Kent grabbing a truck with a crying man inside of it while flying through the middle of a tornado. It looked incredible. Henry Cavill can fly, and he can hold a truck in one arm. Zack Snyder brings his usual visual flair, but somehow is still unlike anything he has made before. It felt like a Superman comic. Real heroism.
The longer clip was even more stunning, but the more I think about it, slightly concerning. The clip consisted of Superman in full costume in a verbal argument with Zod in the center of Smallville with Christopher Meloni yells at them through a megaphone next to a tank. Meloni warns them he will fire if they do not surrender. While he says this Zod sizes Superman up. Shannon looks evil as he can be. Bone chilling even. And is DEFINITELY sporting enhanced muscle. Cavill’s Superman is a wonderful sight to behold in motion. Cavill’s pure size makes him the most believable Superman to date. Zod speaks in Kryptonian “Do you know your native tongue, Kal-el?” Superman looks stunned, and responds in English, “Who are you?” (there isn’t enough Superman dialogue to judge Cavill’s performance fairly, but I’d say he did well. Nothing spectacular from this clip.) Meloni curses, then into a walkie talkie orders the tank to fire. Superman hears this and turns to the tank. Zod takes this opportunity to sucker punch Superman(in Zack Snyder slow-then-fast-mo) then when the tank fires Superman rushes in front of Zod, despite the punch and catches the exploding missile near his stomach. The flames ripple around him, hit his face, his cape, his eyes. The shrapnel hits him and bounces off. The same happens to Zod to a lesser extent. Meloni’s shocked expression when they remain standing, silhouettes in a cloud of smoke, ends the clip.
It was incredible, it really was. And absolutely visually stunning, but my qualm is its typical Zack Snyder. It doesn’t look glossy like his films do. It instead has a more clean cut, colorful look. Like Thor, or Iron Man. But it is the same slow-mo styling that people expect from him. Maybe it just happens in this one scene, but it happens twice. Makes me a bit hesitant, despite the fact it looks phenomenal.
I have been given the clear, this information isn’t secret, I can disclose what I please. It wasn’t a conference, perhaps I was a tad misleading in that regard. It was a gathering, banquet of sorts, of VFX artists on WB payroll. For the poster with ties into the business, ask around, it was a limited invitation event, but someone else out there has got to be able to verify the event took place. It was at the Langham Huntington in Pasadena. We were served a Caesar salad followed by smoked salmon. I can assure you this event took place. WETA presented a long sizzle reel, the Man of Steel clips were just part of it. And finally, the proof you’ve all be waiting for. My name is Jonathan Rothbart. I’ve been working in effects my whole life. My first major film was part of a massive team on Empire Strikes Back. I still have my shirt from the film, one that ONLY those involved with the production would have. I did freelance work with ILM for a while early in my career then settled into a great job at an effects house called The Orphanage. I have a great relationship with WB, and I was honored to be invited to the event.
I under skepticism, I do. But you’ll see the exact shots I spoke of, to a tee, in the finished film. And I’ll come back to these boards and prove it. I guarantee someone else will speak about this footage at some point today, just wait for the news to break.
Man Of Steel To Be Released In IMAX 3D
Next week sees the release of The Dark Knight, the conclusion to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, but that won't be the end of the filmmaker's time in the world of comic book movies. Though he won't be involved with Warner Bros.' Justice League film, he is an executive producer on Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. His involvement with that project, however, has raised some questions about how the new Superman flick would be released. Nolan, of course, has long been a proponent of IMAX over 3D, but there were no reports during production that Snyder was using either technology. So what's it going to be?
Apparently a mix of both. The official IMAX website (via CBM) has updated their website and lists Man of Steel as an "IMAX 3D Experience." The release date for the movie, June 14, 2014, is the same as the official day from Warner Bros. Because the film wasn't shot in either 3D or IMAX, this means that it will be converted for both formats. Here is the official blurb from the site:
Snyder has experience with 3D, both native and post-converted. His 2010 animated movie Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole was made entirely in 3D and while Sucker Punch didn't end up expanding into the third dimension he did some tests prior to the movie's release.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.
The IMAX release of Man of Steel will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Laurence Fishburne, Russell Crowe, Harry Lennix and Christopher Meloni. Look for our coverage of the film's Comic Con panel this Saturday (and stay tuned Wednesday to see Man of Steel images on the official tote bags and whatever WB has in store for the convention floor!).
Man Of Steel Teaser Will Be In Front Of the Dark Knight Rises
If you're at Comic Con today you might be getting an advance look at Zack Snyder's Superman movie Man of Steel-- for more about that, you can read Eric's liveblog here. But even if you didn't make it into Hall H, you're not going to have to wait long to see what Man of Steel is all about. At today's panel Snyder officially confirmed that the first teaser for Man of Steel will run in front of The Dark Knight Rises-- which, as we all know, opens next Friday, July 20.
To be honest, it would have been more surprising if they didn't pair the Superman movie trailer with Batman-- after all, they're not just from the same DC Comics universe, but Christopher Nolan is serving as a producer on Man of Steel, and Warner Bros. is clearly trying to position Superman as their new marquee hero now that Nolan's Batman trilogy is wrapping up its run. Early reports from the Man of Steel presentation today say the movie has a very Batman Begins kind of vibe, so the trailer might be a nice intro into the dark world of The Dark Knight Rises.
Man Of Steel Comic Con Poster Plunges Superman Into Darkness
As you may have already read in our extensive liveblog, the upcoming Superman movie Man of Steel unveiled its first footage today at Comic Con, drawing immediate comparisons to the way Christopher Nolan rebooted Batman's story with a darker tone in Batman Begins. Everyone will be able to get a close look at the movie for themselves when the Man of Steel teaser runs in front of The Dark Knight Rises next week, but in the meanwhile, the movie's Comic Con poster has gone online, and yes, it's got plenty of that dark tone to go around too. Take a look below.
If you're not getting a Batman vibe from that poster, you're not seeing the same thing i am. It's so dark you can barely tell that S on his chest is red; you get Henry Cavill's face only in dark silhouette, and the bent head suggests the weight of the world on the shoulders of the alien who vows to protect the Earth. It's a striking image, for sure, and a long way from the bright and shiny version of Superman we've seen onscreen many times. Zack Snyder told the crowd at Comic Con that he's trying to give us a sense of what it would be like to be Superman and from the looks of this, it's really not all that fun.
Man of Steel has a lot of expectations on it as it heads toward its June 14 release next year, and we're getting a clearer picture today of just what's in store.
saw a low-res version of the trailer shown at Comic-Con. di ko maintindihan walang sounds saka malayo yung vid...
but damn, i'm so stoked for this after seeing that red cape majestically flowing over the skies.
In Snyder We Trust. hope this film will bring the rightful king back to his throne.
as long as its not Smallville "dark", then i'm all for it. yung pagiging dark naman din eh kelangan sa films to make the heroic moments more uplifting.
